Fat Smitty.

Fat Smitty's

When I first was introduced to Fat Smitty's I had just been stationed up here in the Pacific Northwest. I was driving with fellow service members up to Port Angeles. The atmosphere was so friendly to us on active duty that for a moment I forgot I was far away from family and felt right at home.

After eight years in the Navy I was honorably discharged and I have family of my own now in the Pacific Northwest. Whenever I'm in the area, my son and I enjoy a burger and I reminisce and share with him the stories about my time in the Navy and how much Fat Smitty's was so much a part of it. In fact, there is a Navy hat that I gave to them; I point it out to my son every time we go there.

Money on the ceiling.

Fat Smitty's

This burger joint has over $10,000 in currency hung on walls and ceilings, as well as great chainsaw-carved offbeat characters. The food is so-so.

Fat Smitty's

Loads of photo ops at this place. I just love giant things. Quirky, colorful (and the burgers are good, too), but remember to bring cash, as that is all they accept.

The inside was a surprise. Over the years patrons have tacked dollar bills to the ceiling -- many, many bills. They do not have postcards for sale, believe it or not, but I rectified that by sending them a batch from the pictures I took when I was there. A fun place to stop after you've visited Bandy's Troll Haven.

Fat Smitty's statues.

Fat Smitty's Restaurant

While I haven't been since 2005, I have been to Fat Smitty's Restaurant about five times since I was a small child (in the 80s). The burgers have always been good and the statues out front always make for a fun photo!

Inside, the number of dollar bills with funny, sarcastic, sweet and boring things written on them keep a person more than entertained. I know I have several bills hanging up and plan to go back and add another soon!

Weird Carved Statues

In the small town of Discovery Bay. At three locations down from each other are a wood-carved ice cream cone, a hot dog man with pterodactyl and logger, and a crazy store.
