Welcome to Fat Jack’s Wings & Things
“A Grand Strand Original Restaurant”
FAT JACK opened his Beach Bar in the early 70’s in North Myrtle beach next to FAT HAROLD’s. The group ALABAMA remembers the good times in their 1997 CD with “Dancin on the Boulevard.” Eventually the beach bar closed and a retired police officer from Syracuse New York opened FAT JACK’s on Lake Arrowhead in Myrtle Beach. The bar ambiance remained but he introduced the Original Buffalo Wings to locals and beach visitors as a novelty from his home.
With the growth of the area, a new home was found at the back gate of the Myrtle Beach Air Force Base. FAT JACK’s again became a popular hang-out, this time for servicemen and women and flight crews on stand-by. A few more flavors were added and locals continued to develop a taste for Buffalo Wings.
The closure of the Myrtle Beach Air Force Base had an economic impact with the area departure of so many of FAT JACK’s customers. FAT JACK’s was on the move again… to its present location in 1994.
