Everything was tasty and the service was very good.

After a long, cold journey from Florida to Rockingham, NC, to buy a new motorcycle, we ate at Fatz. The food as very good as well as the service. My wife especially enjoyed the excellent Margarita!

Bartender couldn't make a mojito. Served it minus mint / lime. When I returned it, he added lime, mint & cucumbers as a garnish. The mint must be muddled for a proper mojito. Any bartender with experience should know that. Our server, Charles was outstanding. Professional & polite. They need more servers like him. Food was good, not great. There... More

Wow, after two previous trips with very pleasant results, this trip I was very disappointed in the quality of the preparation and cooking of the pork ribs. The ribs were extremely tough and chewy as well as the pork chops. The service was good but also noticed the business wasn't there either with the locals. Is this an indication that... More

My wife and I told the waitress that it was the first ever in a Fatz Café. When we told her we were going to order the Calabash Chicken - she told us that they first like to get people to taste it before ordering. She brought out a piece of chicken tender for each of us. The chicken (and... More

Service was great, normally food is great but this time they burned my steak. Would still go back, not too many places to eat in Rockingham, unless you want pizza or burgers

Large portions, friendly staff. We ate there once because of its ratings and proximity to our hotel. We went back two more times because of the quality. Not haute cuisine, but it's great comfort food.

This was my first experience at FATZ and I must say I was tickled pink with everything you walk in and are greeted with a smiling face seated promptly( which I was amazed at being as the parking lot was full!), shortly after was greeted by the sweetest waitress and never had any issues she remembered our order And when...

Waitress was friendly. Food was below drive thru quality. Bring you out a baskets of rolls. They were rubber. They rave about the chicken strips. And shockingly the chicken strips were the only decent part of the meal. Nothing at all special about them. Salads were awful. Coleslaw was heavy and over seasoned. Loaded potato soup lacked potatoes.

We ate there once, Sept 2013, and would never eat there again. Started off with two clam chowders which included no visible clams. Then ordered two single Fatz's fish. Definitely not cooked properly and was inedible. The response of the waitress, when she saw that 3/4 of our meals were left, was "did you have enough". Enough said, the service... More
