Exterior signage is now up on Bermuda Road, as the unrepentantly high-calorie Fat Shack restaurant officially reveals its “late night done right” menu is coming soon to the southeast.
A successful participant on ABC TV’s Shark Tank, securing $250,000 in financial backing from entrepreneur Mark Cuban, Fat Shack will replace a shuttered Burgerim restaurant and take over a 1,750-square-foot corner space at the intersection of Bermuda Road and Silverado Ranch Boulevard.
Joining neighbors Sea Salt Sushi & Oyster and Marco’s Pizza, the Fat Shack counter-service franchise plans to be open from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. daily and closing at 3 a.m. on Friday and Saturday. An exact opening date has not been announced.
Created in 2010 by Tom Armenti and Kevin Gabauer and now expanded to nine states, the Las Vegas location will continue the brand's comfort-food menu anchored by 8- or 12-inch hero roll Fat Sandwiches, overstuffed with ingredients including chicken fingers, mozzarella sticks, mac and cheese, bacon, and French fries.
Burger fans can indulge in the three Angus beef patties stacked to create The Supreme, or order Buffalo wings and cheesesteaks paired with fried pickles, onion rings, and cheese fries.
Fat Shack also specializes in battered, deep-fried, powdered-sugar-covered desserts, prepared with Oreos, Rice Krispie treats, Twinkies, chocolate chip cookies, and funnel cake bites.
