Chain, but very good food

I have not gotten anything that was not really good to eat. Servers are doing it for a living and it shows. Try the Shrimp and Grits and the Ribs. Just a good place.

my husband and I stopped there and had to order To Go since we had our dog with us and Fatz did not offer a patio to sit on with dogs. So, I can not comment on the service much, but most people I talked to were nice and helpful. The food was pretty good and really nice portions for... More

We stayed in Franklin this past weekend and went up Friday night for supper. The place was pretty busy but we were seated quickly. Our waitress arrived promptly to take our drink order and was back shortly with them and got our dinner order. My husband ordered hot wings as an appetizer and was pleased, For his entree he ordered... More

We went to a concert at the Smoky Mountain Entertainment Center and wanted to eat a real dinner. The show ended at 9pm and this was the only place open to offer that kind of food. I have been to a Fatz in Spartanburg, SC and was very dissapointed, but in a bind. We went in and it was moderately... More

Fantastic waiter Ben, who could not do enough for us. Good budget food, bustling and full on a Sunday night, always a good sign.

Thought we would stop in for a quick bite and ended up with an excellent meal and a real value. The 50+ menu is an early bird for those 50+ of us. Not a smaller portion but a definitely smaller price! Our server Nick was as talented as a fine dining server with much more personality and expertise.

My family ate there this last weekend. We was promptly seated, our waitress come over and the service was perfect. The food was good, but weighed against the price....not sure about this. I had a ribeye steak which for the size was a little out of whack on price. I was OK with price when looking at the menu hoping... More
