Unique Burgers. The environment: The theme of Fat Willy's is automative, with lots of car and gas station signs around the bar. Not overpowering, and not anywhere near the amount of decorations as you'd find at someplace like Famous Dave's, though. Going in February, it was a bit cold in the restaurant as well.

The service: Friendly and prompt.

The burgers: Fat Willy's is going to have some of the more unique choices for burgers in Rochester. And the burgers and sandwiches have automative names. The blue cheeseburger is called a 52 Bleu, there's a Hwy 63 with olives and cheese, a plain burger is called an Edsel. I had a Ferrari, which is a pizza burger--a ground chuck and ground Italian sausage patty with pepperoni, mozzarella, and marina sauce. The burger was flavorful and juicy, cooked to the perfect amount of doneness.

Sides: You're not stuck with fries as a side order here. You can get things such as cole slaw or "backfire beans" which are beans with bacon and brown sugar, and my wife described them as being a sort of sweet chili. The fries that I had looked good, but they were a bit soggy and not crunchy. If they had been crunchy, I think they would have been good, because they had a good flavor to them. But, in other words, the fries are average and about par for the course when it comes to fries in Rochester.
