I've had Fat Tuesdays every time I visit Vegas, so I was happy to see one in Philadelphia when I was visiting South Street. I love their strong, but good drinks and this location didn't let me down! This location has a huge variety of flavors at a good price. I recommend adding an extra shot for a small additional... More

This place is located in south Philly and the drinks are pretty good. I would've expected more lights and flair , but it was a Monday night and seemed pretty quiet. The bar itself was a little rundown and could use a good cleaning but we were here for the drinks and we weren't disappointed. The drinks were strong and... More

My drink(Electric Lemonade) was great and the service was okay. I've been to the Fat Tuesday's in Miami and the Bahamas so I was expecting a really fun environment, but I wasn't expecting a $10 charge just to get in! Usually when you pay to get in somewhere you usually have a good time and it's worth the money well... More

A friend and I stopped there for a drink on a warm day and so we tried their famous octane 190. We shared one, was refreshing and felt tipsy afterwards. Service was great, liked the experience.

Stopped in on a hot spring day, many different flavors of frozen drinks (over 21 only). They were unfortunately out of a few when we were there. Gets very crowded, staff was not very friendly, (except for the guy that let us out the door).
