Had Sunday lunch and it was very good. Pot roast would melt in your mouth. My son had chicken tenders and my husband the fried chicken - everyone was pleased with the meal. The service was fast and friendly.

Chain restaurant and all locations I've tried are about the same. That is a good thing. Quality food. Service is usually pretty good. My picky wife says the potato soup is the best she has ever had. My only problem with this location is the cotton candy machine. It's loud and the fibers stir in the air and itch your... More

Ribs were tender. Mac and cheese - creamy and cheesy. Steak was tender and tasty. Reasonably priced. Good service.

Although I am a senior single lady, I don't feel uncomfortable going into the lounge area to eat so I can watch some of the sports on t.v.. Night girl bartender is very customer oriented and makes me feel "at home". Food is very good ( love the fish here) and service is fast. One of the only places I... More

Fatz was our first meal in Franklin and came recommended by a local. Nice place with friendly staff that welcomed us. Food came quickly, I enjoyed the chicken pot pie, the girls had the chicken tenders and our teenager had the burger. Compliments all around!

This is a chain restaurant but better than most. Portions were very large and the prices were remarkably low. Chicken pasta and fried chicken were great and took a lot home. Everything was served quickly and hot. Service was attentive. Definitely worth the visit but expect to wait a little. It's popular and one of the few places open in... More

Clean, good service and close to the hotel. Lousy food at twice the price and half the taste of local eateries.

Had dinner here over the weekend while visiting the mountains. Pretty good meal. Portions were good size. I had beef tips and rice, they were great. Others had ribs and steak and were very pleased. Had a great waitress who checked on us often. Prices were decent for what we got. The restaurant could use some repairs. The seats in... More

Stopped at the FATZ in Franklin, NC for Sunday lunch and what a fun surprise to see the "Sunday only" luncheon specials. Hubby and I both had the turkey dinner served with mashed potatoes, dressing, green beans & a small side of cranberry sauce. Plate was full with delicious everything. Felt like Thanksgiving dinner in August. Delicious!

Ate at Fatz after a long drive up from Florida. One of a very few restaurants open on Sunday night. I had the light pineapple chicken dinner and it was well prepared. I substituted cole slaw for rice and it was a great decision. My daughter had cheeseburger. She liked it but did not look outstanding but good. Wine list... More
