A Louisiana-based pizzeria has brought the “World’s Biggest Pizza Slice” to Katy. Fat Boy’s Pizza's second Houston-area location will open on December 5.
Located in the Katy Grand development near the intersection of I-10 and the Grand Parkway, the new Fat Boy’s will occupy approximately 3,800-square-feet with an 1,100-square-foot patio (23333 Grand Circle Blvd.). It joins an existing location in Richmond that opened in January.
The restaurant’s giant slices come from its signature 30-inch pies. More conventional 10 and 16-inch pizzas are also available. They’re joined on the menu by appetizers such as meatballs, mozzarella sticks, and wings.
Beverage options include a full selection of beer, wine, and cocktails, including to-go daiquiris by the gallon.
At time when many pizzerias are focused on to-go, Fat Boy’s makes dine-in more appealing. Each location also includes an arcade for children of all ages. As founder Gabe Corchiani explained on an episode of CultureMap’s “What’s Eric Eating” podcast, the restaurant prides itself on offering a higher level of service than typical casual restaurants.
"We're very service-oriented. We greet guests when they come in the door," he said. "You order from a menu board. We bring the food out to you. We make sure you get touched at least once out there to see if you need anything. We're friendly. That's what we bank on."
Fat Boy’s plans to open several locations throughout Houston. Next will be a restaurant in Sienna that’s scheduled for next summer, according to a release.
“We are thrilled to continue our expansion into the Houston market and plan to become a staple in the Katy community,” Fat Boy’s directior of Texas operations George Malek said in a statement. “Fat Boy’s Pizza is a fun, family-oriented concept that is thriving in Richmond, and we believe will have similar growth in Katy and the Houston area.”
