Fatty’s Burger at 6 PM – Rain Permitting

There is an ongoing theme in the collector car world about where, when, and what a car show, cruise-in, or show & shine ought to be. In past years we have all wondered why in the world the ONLY 50’s style burger joint in the region was “anti-car” in their thinking.

If it rains let’s come out with our regular cars anyway.

Now, with new ownership, Fatty’s Burger located at the Sunset Corner Plaza is up to the task. Gregg Hess, owner of the former Marv’s and rebranded Fatty’s Burger approached several different car clubs, groups, and individuals about doing a cruise-in in the old school Cruise-In style with 50’s music, great parking and great burgers. Corner of Sunset and Valley View/North Bluff in St. George.

Greg has settled on a once per month, 4th Thursday Cruise-In for all collector cars, hot rods, customs, and special interest cars, trucks, and bikes. Let’s all make it out to support this venue like we have with Iceberg, Hangout, and Cars & Coffee over the years.
