Never to be confused with any of its heath-conscious, low-calorie, fast-casual dining rivals, Colorado-born Fat Shack promises to be coming soon to the southeast, bringing a late-night influenced menu of indulgent burgers, sandwiches, and deep-fried desserts.
Backed by entrepreneur Mark Cuban during a 2019 episode of ABC TV’s Shark Tank, founders Tom Armenti and Kevin Gabauer have now franchised their 10-year old restaurant across eight states.
Locally, Fat Shack is taking over a former 1,750-square-foot Burgerim corner space at the intersection of Bermuda Road and Silverado Ranch Boulevard, a short distance from Sea Salt Sushi & Oyster.
The Fat Shack specialties include stuffing an 8- or 12-inch hero roll with side dish ingredients including chicken fingers, mozzarella sticks, French fries, mac and cheese, and plenty of bacon. The restaurant also offers burgers, Philly cheesesteaks, Buffalo wings, “munchie madness” appetizer plates, and milkshakes.
Yet to be confirmed for the Las Vegas location, Fat Shack also serves battered deep-fried, Oreo cookies, Rice Krispie treats, cookies, funnel cakes, and Twinkies, all topped with powdered sugar.
Already announcing the space will be open daily from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m., and closing at 3 a.m. on Friday and Saturday, an estimated debut date has not been revealed.
