Some Serious Burger Innovation

1624 E. Commerce -- Within Walking Distance of Downtown!

As I’ve said somewhere to someone, San Antonio has some of the best burger joints around. Little did I know that some serious innovation has been taking place on the east side of San Antonio at Fatty’s Burgers. Locally owned and operated, Fatty’s owner Mark, recently started serving some “outside the box” burgers. I’ve been excited about eating a burger before, but I’ve never had fun eating one until I went and tried out the ice cream burger. That’s right, an ice cream burger!

I’ve tried two of their five new releases. Below I’ve reviewed the ice cream burger and the pancake burger. The other three new ones are the breakfast burger (served with an egg), the BBQ burger (served with sliced brisket), and the chocolate chip cookie burger.

The Ice Cream Burger

Some, if not many, will be suspicious of just how good (or bad) an ice cream burger might taste. Well, I think it tastes pretty dang good and others seems to agree. Fatty’s burgers are already great, but when you add delicious ice cream (either vanilla or strawberry) to an already delicious burger, then well, get ready for a fun experience. Along with the burger, go ahead and order their award-winning, beer-battered onion rings.

Beans That Actually Taste Good

Oh, and while your waiting, be sure and enjoy a cup of their complementary pinto beans. I normally don’t think much of pinto beans, but if beans tasted like Fatty’s most of the time, then I’d be a bean connoisseur. Just sayin’.

The Pancake Burger

On another visit, I ordered the pancake burger. Just look at that burger! Bread, pancake, meat, cheese, and syrup. That’s it. I had to ditch the bun half way through because, as good as it is, it’s like eating a burger with double the bread. The pancake was really good and so was the burger. It’s ideal for brunch and it will fill you up quickly.

Can you believe what you’ve just seen? I’m still really excited about these outside the box burgers and I’d recommend anyone reading this post to at least go and order the ice cream burger. Have some fun and say hi to Barbara, Fatty’s hostess. You’ll love her hospitality and kindness and she’ll take good care of you.

If you can’t bring yourself to order the ice cream or pancake burger, check out the menu below and take your pick. Bby the way, take a look at Fatty’s website by clicking here and check out how their building looked before it was renovated and became a fine, east side establishment. Let’s support this locally owned and operated restaurant and spread the word about this great place!

Fatty’s hours: Mon – Wed 11am – 6pm; Thurs – Sat 11am – 8pm; closed for church on Sunday.

These Are Your Burger Options, Plus More!

Next post…my favorite coffee shop in the Alamo City!

  1. Great post. Sounds like this place should be on Diners Drive-ins and Dives with Guy Fieri.

  2. You just keep improving with each post! For me, a person who hates burgers, this place looks good.

  3. Just wanted to thank you guys for taking time out of your busy schedules to visit us. We’re always so thankful for our new friends.
