--My Yelp review.--

Being a huge fan of craft beer and always looking for something new, I knew I'd be an absolute dumb ass for going to Cleveland to see the Tigers beat the Indians without stopping in North Olmsted to eat and drink at Fat Heads.

At around 4pm on a Saturday, the place was pretty packed. We walked through the place to be escorted back outside where our table was. The place has a great aesthetic and is surprisingly big, but would it hurt to have a little more lighting? It was almost like a theater in there. Regardless, I'd love to revisit and stay inside... just not when the weather is so perfect outside.

I wound up getting a sample of five beers (you can pick as many as you want, and the Cuyahoga burger. We also split the Bavarian pretzels and the Frickles. The Frickles were well received as the breading wasn't a soggy mess like at some places, and the Sriracha dipping sauce was great. The Bavarian pretzels are also really good, but some didn't care for the spicy honey mustard dipping sauce -- wimps! It tasted great and had a nice heaty kick to it. As for the beer (I mean, it IS a brewery...), I got Prohibition Pauly Porter with Coffee, Goggle Fogger, Trail Head, Angels for ALS IPA, and Bumbleberry. No, I didn't get their critically acclaimed Head Hunter IPA because I bought a four-pack to bring home and enjoy. As I figured, all the beers were good or better. I'm not usually huge on fruity beers, but the Bumbleberry is the perfect fruity Summer beer.

The food came out surprisingly fast despite how busy the place was, so the guys and girls in the kitchen know what the hell they're doing. I got my burger cooked medium and that's just how it came out. As for the thing as a whole, I've had better burgers, but the value of the thing is ridiculous, and it's still a really enjoyable one. There's a good portion of pork, spicy BBQ sauce, and jalapenos. Really, I like really spicy food, and this made my nose run a little bit. I wasn't expecting it. Messy, but not too messy -- the buns they use really help with that.

I'd be a fat, fat person if I lived in the area. The menu is loaded with options that basically all sound fantastic, and the portions are absolutely huge... I was one of two at the table to finish our order, and I wasn't exactly comfortable after finishing it either. There are a bunch of items on the menu that I'd like to try next time I'm anywhere around Cleveland.
