Fatso's Pizza

Looks can be deceiving. What should be a run-of-the-mill pizza joint situated in a North Phoenix strip mall is actually a large music venue with a full bar, pool table, eclectic menu, and big family crowds. As its name portends, the food and drink selection is fat with 20 different Italian pies and a beer selection that includes imports like Stella Artois and Foster's and craft brews like Stone's Arrogant Bastard Ale. Meanwhile, Fatso's live music offerings are mostly of the low-key acoustic and folk variety, with musicians like Smoot Mahooty and The Blenderz hitting the stage on weekend nights. Thursday's open mic session, however, is far from subdued, with patrons loudly singing along with the performers.
