pleasantly surprised

Have had iffy experiences with this chain in the past, but was pleasantly surprised. We only ate there because everywhere else we tried closed extremely early (8:00)! The waitstaff was friendly, the food was good and fresh, and actually the servings were too big, but very well prepared.

We visited the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend. Not super busy but staff still seemed a little overwhelmed. Loved the little poppy seed biscuits. Shrimp and grits was tasty but I was very glad I asked for the sauce/gravy on the side or it would have been WAY too spicy. Good suggestion from our server! Loved the chicken strips but... More

Fats is across the street from the Microtel Inn. Very convenient. We were seated right away. Which was nice,we had been drinking for eleven hours. Our waitress came to the table as soon as we were seated. She was very nice. We had great food. More than enough on every order. The waitress answered all the question, we had to... More

Good food, great service, good location, & decent drink selection. I have zero complaints with this bar/restaurant, and would stop by again if in the area.

We stopped by Fatz for a quick lunch and were very pleased with both the service and the food. Our waitress was very efficient and friendly. When I asked about the Chicken Tender Soup she asked if I would like a sample to try before placing my order. This was very helpful and, after a taste, I decided that was... More

Fatz Cafe dishes were good and very typical of the chain. Service is always efficient and pleasant. Portions are generous and prices standard. We did note that another patron was allowed to have a dog in the restaurant which does not seem favorable to other diners. This was not a service dog but a pet being carried in a crate.

We think the food, staff, and prices at Fatz are great. We always enjoy our meals there. I especially like their Fish and Chips meal...the fish is light and flaky and the breading very light. We have not had a meal we did not enjoy at the Franklin restaurant...just wish there were Fatz restaurants in Florida (seem to only have... More

Unique to this area. Friendly staff, great service and good tasting food. The sangria was very tasty. I enjoyed the steak but wasn't the best I've had, I would recommend sticking with their chicken selections. Great selection of desserts too. They do birthday celebrations and the wait wasn't very long.

Stopped in for lunch on our way home from an extra long weekend. Food was very good, service was good and the prices were not bad either. Would not go out of my way to eat there but if it is on the way...
