ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. – The Colorado-based chain Fat Shack is now open for late-night eats near the campus of the University of Central Florida.
The restaurant specializes in decadent menu offerings such as fried appetizers, cheesesteaks, wings, deep-fried desserts and its signature “Fat Sandwiches,” like a Fat Doobue, which consists of chicken fingers, french fries, onion rings, mozzarella sticks and honey mustard.
The restaurant is open Sunday through Thursday 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. and 11 a.m. to 3 a.m. on Friday and Saturday.
The chain was started in 2010 by owner Tom Armenti who would later move his operations to Fort Collins, Colorado — bringing his college friend Kevin Gabauer into the business around the same time, according to the company’s website.
Fat Shack began franchising in 2015 and now has locations in 13 states across the U.S.
The UCF location is owned and operated by franchisees Barb and Rob Kowalski, according to the company.
