About Fette Sau

Located next to Frankford Hall on Fishtown’s popular Frankford Avenue, Fette Sau is yet another Stephen Starr creation. With a design resembling an antiquated farmhouse, Fette Sau serves up a delectable selection of a la carte BBQ meats including brisket, pulled pork, ribs, chicken and more.

With a large garage door and patio, Fette Sau has both indoor and outdoor spaces giving you the choice of where to eat or drink. Notably, the outdoor area is dog-friendly, so you can feel free to bring your furry friends. Both areas are kid and stroller-friendly, making Fette Sau a popular destination for families.

In addition to the food, Fette Sau has a phenomenal beer selection featuring their own signature beer from Sly Fox, Fat Pig (Fette Sau is German for “fat pig”). Non-beer drinkers will welcome Fette Sau’s selection of whiskey and mixed drinks, including some of the area’s best old-fashioneds. The excellent drink selection is complemented by one of Fishtown’s best happy hours, when beer is half price and there are specials on mixed drinks.
