Not many places to eat in Rockingham but Fatz is one of my regulars. food is pretty good but I've tried the ribs 3 times and every time they are cold in the middle. Bartender Shannon super nice always has a smile.

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

My sons Caesar salad had a large piece of cellophane type plastic in it. He actually bit into it and began to choke. The shrimp & grits which used to be fabulous were just meh. Quality not the same.

My wife and I met our daughter's family at the Fatz Cafe in Rockingham. Previous visits to the Fatz located in Camden SC and Columbia SC had left an unpleasant experience for us. This one in Rockingham was totally a joy - great service and great tasting food. We often go through Rockingham on our way to Raleigh, and will... More

I ordered the chicken wrap and cheese fries and it was excellent. The rolls are so delicious. The food came out fast. My server was awesome. Only down-side was the restaurant had many dirty tables and the bathroom wasn't clean. They need a new manager.

We found Fatz to be a clean and fun place to eat during our stay in Rockingham for the 2014 U.S. Open golf tournament. We ate there three times and each time the food was served with little delay and tasted fresh and well prepared. The hostess, bartender and server were all friendly and professional. This was our first experience... More
