A brand new burger and beer bar, Fat Patties, opened its door last week at the McHenry Row shopping center in Locust point.

The burger bar took over the former World of Beer bar that closed in 2020.  

The concept for Fat Patties was developed by RegionAle Sandwich founder Kevin Curley, who also opened Federal Hill’s first speakeasy, The Wurst Bar, earlier this year. Curley oversees the Fat Patties concept but the burger bar is under The Green Turtle umbrella. 

“Fat Patties is the product of my inspirations from the smashburger craze of the 1970s, and I wanted to create a space that takes guests back to those familiar tastes and times through amazing food, monster milkshakes, and great beers and cocktails,” Curley said in a statement.

The extensive menu includes 100% angus beef smashburgers, chicken sandwiches, hotdogs, milkshakes, over 25 beers on tap, cocktails, and craft sodas. Fat Patties also serves hand-cut tallow fries that are made fresh, never frozen, and cooked in 100% beef fat.

The 3,400-square-foot restaurant, with a bar and outdoor patio seating, gives guests options to dine in, take out, watch their favorite sports team on one of the many televisions, and tap into their nostalgia by playing games like pinball or Frogger in their retro arcade.

“We’re open and welcoming to all,” general manager Jimmy Mullen said.

“I’m trying to make [Fat Patties] that place everybody wants to come and hang out,” Mullens added. “If you come here for sports, great. If you come here for arcade games, great. If you just want to sit and talk or read a book, great.”

Fat Patties is open 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and 11 a.m. to midnight Friday and Saturday.
