Abâ€™s Drive-In is home of a burger called the Fat Boy. By name alone, I havenâ€™t been this excited for a new burger place in a long time. Known primarily for their shakes and hand cut French fries, Abâ€™s has been around for a long time and if you live in West Valley Utah, you know of Abâ€™s. For the rest of us, here is my Abâ€™s Drive-In review.
Abâ€™s is certainly a drive-in. The workers are chipper and friendly and apologize for any delays, mix ups or messes. That part is nice. The Fat Boy burger at Abâ€™s is not a Fat Boy. Priced at over $3.00 for just the burger, Abâ€™s famous Fat Boy was quite disappointingâ€¦.for a Fat Boy. I guess I was expecting something big and messy and instead I received two thin patties of beef, lettuce, tomatoes, a special sweet sauce with a relatively generic bun. It was presented nicely but I wasnâ€™t overly impressed by this little burger called the Fat Boy. I think that with a name change to â€œSweet Burgerâ€ or â€œAbâ€™s Tasty Burgerâ€ the Fat Boy burger would be better. As for taste, itâ€™s a very sweet burger and has a very unique taste that makes you feel like itâ€™s been sprinkled with sugarâ€¦seriously.
The French fries are a different story. Absolutely Amazing! I can think of a few burger places that should find a way to get the Abâ€™s secret to French fries because Abâ€™s fries are wonderful. Crispy, thick and flavorful, these were the best part of the Abâ€™s experience. The only sad part is that Abâ€™s charges for fry sauce, and their fry sauce isnâ€™t that good. Even with a combo meal that costs nearly $7.00 Abâ€™s Drive-In still feels it necessary to charge $.35 for fry sauce. Thatâ€™s never a good move in my book.

Overall, buy a burger anywhere else but enjoy the fries and to make the trip worth it you should get a shake.
