Wow people! Dogs, slaw, potato salad, even the chips were great. I followed my Clucker with birthday cake. Mmmmm good!

Happy Fatz is located in a house that has been configured into a restaurant. The decor is quirky and fun which complements the menu. I don't typically eat hot dogs, but HF made me a believer! I would recommend ordering the Texas Chilli Dog because it is filling and deliciously savory. However,I'm sure that the other hot dogs at Happy... More

In search of a different place to try, we stopped at Happy Fatz - new to us. Small cafe - order at the counter. Variety of hotdogs, salads and desserts. My daughter and I shared the Texas Chili dog - great wiener - Hebrew National, in a toasted bun topped with chili, onions, cheese and fritos - delicious and the... More

We went in and ordered the Bayou Boss(recommended by the staff) and the Al Capone with their homemade coleslaw and potato salad. The hot dogs were fantastic! Bayou Boss has brisket on it with some barbecue sauce. This one turned out to be my favorite of the two. But the Al Capone which is a Chicago dog was excellent. Good... More

I enjoyed the Barron Von Ratchit -- hot dog with sauerkraut & spicy mustard on a pretzel bun. I liked ALL of it - kraut, mustard and the bun. My friend had the off-the menu BBQ hot dog which was also good. Portions are large so only one hot dog was needed with the included side (chips were my choice).... More

They have great food and are always willing to make me something vegetarian. Not all places are willing to work with veggies and they are always helpful and willing to cook the item to order. Nice atmosphere on top of good food.

Even my husband commented that it was the best he's had. He had coleslaw with his i had the fruit cup that was a little tired and there was mould... More

Forget everything you think you know about hotdogs, open your mind and your belly, and enjoy Happy Fatz. Laid back, comfortable dinning in an original Heights house. I love hotdogs, grill em, boil em, heck thrown em in the microwave, but I thought a restaurant specializing in hotdogs was going to be a waste of a meal. It was fantastic!... More

My first trip to Happy Fatz was delightful. We're always looking for fun new places for breakfast and this did not disappoint. I ordered the Breakfast Sandwich and it was absolutely delicious! The atmosphere is casual, with indoor and outdoor seating. Service was friendly and welcoming and, while we didn't indulge on this visit, the desserts in the case looked... More

To be honest Happy Fatz wasn't even our original destination. But we found ourselves here because the hotdog place around the corner was packed to the gills on the inside because of the heat. So we did a quick search and decided to try this place out instead. We approached the cute little cottage house turned restaurant with an uncertain... More
