Duck Fat is wonderful community pub. The burgers are fantastic and the fries are very favorable. Although I do not drink alcohol there us a very well stocked bar with hard and soft liquors. It is a great place watering hole.

My husband had the brisket sampler and said his was very good. I had the shrimp tempura special & was disappointed, the shrimp was very chewy and my fries were under done and cold

Stopped in for late lunch after flying into town. Had the fatburger and washed it down with an IPA. Very tasty. Wonderful neighborhood ambiance. We stopped here as my host eats regularly here and raves about it. He was not kidding.

Fries were cold, sandwich was just OK. We felt like they would have preferred if we had gone elsewhere. We might tty again, but probably not. Too many other good choices in FP.
