The food was very good, the service and atmosphere were also very very good! I'd say this restaurant is an excellent value when you compare the quality of the food, the comfort and atmosphere in the restaurant; with their prices. I'd definitely go back.

First time to ever eat at the restaurant and we really enjoyed the food and service. I shared a wrap with a friend (that had the special chicken recipe) and our husbands had burgers...everything was very good. The manager went out of his way to greet us too, since this was our first visit and both he and our server... More

My husband and I have driven past this restaurant many times but had never tried it until recently. We were greeted at the door and seated promptly. The waiter took our drink order, and returned promptly to take our food order, bringing some fresh hot bread and honey butter. The food arrived in a reasonable amount of time and was... More

We ate here in early mid-April 2015. Our waiter was attentive and knowledgeable. Otherwise, food was average tasting and over-priced. We are certainly in no hurry to return. If we were with a group of people desirous of eating here, we would be inclined to dine elsewhere separately.

A friend and I had lunch here on a Saturday. The restaurant was busy and the wait staff were efficient. The food was good and all the staff were pleasant to us. I ordered a salmon dish that has a jalapeno sauce which was delicious! The waitress was gracious to put the sauce on the side as it is quite... More

I did not receive my birthday ecard and the manager would not visit my table. The waitress said that I needed to go online and re-sign up for the ecard. I did and it said that I am signed up. She also told me that the manager would give me a complimentary birthday meal card. I didn't get that either.... More

I go there with my family from time to time and the service is excellent. We rarely have to wait to get a table and the staff does a great job there. I would definitely eat there again in the future.

You can't go wrong with this franchise. This one was no exception. I love everything on the menu. I would eat here every day if my pocketbook would allow.

Fatz is a regional fast-casual restaurant chain that has reliably good, moderately priced food in generous portions. Every Fatz I have been to has been clean, well maintained, with good service and good food. This location is no exception, and I have eaten here many times. Given a choice between Chili's, Applebee's, Zaxby's and the like, I would always choose... More
