“Preparing a damn fine burger”

When Lance Jack moved to Carbondale in 1992, one of the first questions he had for his new acquaintances was where he could find a good hamburger. “They mentioned a few places – but really, none of them had a good answer,” said the new entrepreneur and two-year member of the Carbondale City Council. Earlier this month Jack opened the doors to his new restaurant ‘Fat Patties.’ Seventeen years after he asked the question about where to get a good burger – he believes he’s answered it. Fat Patties, at 611B S. Illinois Ave., is Jack’s new restaurant. The menu features 1/3-pound burgers with a variety of toppings and variations, including one made with blue cheese.
