Nice Sit-Down Restaurant in a Sea of Fast Food

We pulled off the interstate to gas up and get out of the car to have a nice lunch on our way back from Cherokee, NC. There weren't many "sit down" style restaurants on this street and this looked to be the nicest. Inside is somewhat road-house style, sans the peanut shells on the floor. It was... read more

Dining room has booth seating that makes it impossible to seat large groups on Saturday or Sunday's. I have went several times and found that my name was skipped over when seating groups because of the number of people. Both times we could have fit in the booths they gave away. Staff does not stay on top of seating issues.... More

I have tried this restaurant three different times thinking that maybe somebody was having an "off" day, but it's still bad. It's pretty bad when I know I could prepare better food at home! I am not a food snob and I rarely complain or send food back to the kitchen, but I have sent food back two of the... More

Fatz is one of my favorite Restaurants for the variety of meals and menu options. There is something for everyone. Great for family gatherings or for solo dining.

I travel for my job and I stop at a lot of restaurants. You get good service sometimes and bad service sometimes. This Fatz Café had the best customer service of any Fatz Café I have ever been. The food was excellent and the associates were awesome. The only thing is that did not offer draft Budweiser and I always... More

This appears to be a newer restaurant chain. Restaurant has a nice layout. Seating area is very roomy, comfortable. Staff was very knowledgeable of the menu, very polite and cheerful. Chicken Calabash was very good. Manager came around to ensure we were taken care of Nice ! Wings were okay but nothing special. Service was excellent. Enjoy !

Only expect basic food at Fatz. Mostly steaks on the menu; which are decent. The salmon we had didn’t look & taste attractive at all. The seating and whole atmosphere are to cry for. Kudos to the bartender who’s a real pro 

In a pinch it was okay. We took the son and wife out, service was great,. Seated fast, pretty basic menu. I had the ribeye, the wife and son had the salmon. Seemed to lack some flavor. Pretty basic.
