Fatboy & Skinnys 303 S. 5th St. Leesville, La. 71446 (337) 404-3933

About six months ago was an article about this establishment. I had occasion to go to Shreveport and for sentimental reason took Hwy 171 up and back. I stopped here to try it out. They offer two size burgers. A Fatboy with two 1/3 lb patties and a Skinny with one. The owners resemble the name of the restaurant. Skinny is the cook and he make a mean patty. Intensely charred on the outside and juicy on the inside. The "gimmick" is a selection of toppings for both burgers and hot dogs. One half of a Skinny (one 1/3 lb patty) with mayo, sauteed onions and cheddar cheese
The other half had sweet relish,mustard and hot sauce. Turn very nice. Patty had nice char but not over cooked. Nice and juicy
A third lb dog barely heated on griddle with mayo, mustard, onions, slaw and sauerkraut with pickled jalapenos. Did not care for it. Did not like the slaw or sauerkraut and dog could have charred more. I think a chili cheese dog would be alright
All in all a nice place to stop. It is in an old gas station on the north main drag right after it splits into a north side and south side with businesses and housing between them. If I have to head up that way again I will get that chili dog and report
