 Late Night TCU Eaters Can Get Grub At New Fat Shack Location

For those living on the TSC campus, the Fat Shack will satisfy your late night cravings. For example, the Fat Doobie is a chicken tenders sandwich topped with onion rings, mozzarella sticks, French fries and honey mustard.

Tom Armenti founded the Fat Shack in 2010 to provide his college and the surrounding area with food options late into the night. The first Fat Shack opened in Denver in 2015. Since that time, it’s opened 13 locations; the TCU location will be number 14.

The Texas locations – Denton and College Station – appeal to students who need to satisfy their appetites.

Darius Spain, a sophomore at the University of North Texas in Denton, said that he enjoys going to Fat Shack because it’s different from other restaurants, as it offers a laid-back environment.

This is exactly what Armenti had in mind when he came up with the Fat Shack idea while also ensuring great customer service.

Fort Worth Fat Shack owners Taylor Jerrell and Ronnie Davis said Fat Shack is widely known for its difference. He said the sandwiches have a layer of fries and other deep-fried foods. He said the burgers and Philly’s tend to be the most asked for foods, as they can be customized with any topping or fried item.

For those who don’t want a sandwich, the deep fried items can be a side item.

Of course, Fat Shack is more than just burgers, Philly’s and sandwiches. They also offer drinks, milkshakes and a full bar. They also have desserts such as the deep-fried Oreos or Rice Krispies treat. For those really adventurous folks, Fat Shack employees can deep fry any dessert that customers bring in.

According to Cambrie Hoomanawanui, a TCU student, Fat Shack doesn’t carry the traditional foods on the menu – more like fair food.

Fat Shack is the spot for students to give in to their guilty pleasures… whatever it may be.

The Fort Worth Fat Shack has its own sandwich – Fat Frog – which includes chicken tenders, fries, bacon, eggs, ketchup and mayonnaise. It’s named for the TCU horned frog. Fat Shack will stay open until 1 a.m. on weeknights and 3 a.m. on weekends. They will also offer takeout and delivery via a third-party service such as DoorDash, UberEats, etc.

Fat Shack is set to open anywhere from May 7 to May 15 and will be featured on the Shark Tank series May 12 8 p.m.
