Another Good Meal at Fatz!

We stop here periodically when going home to TN from Charlotte airport as we did this past Saturday night. The service was good and the food was served hot and fast. It is a very good value and they have a nice variety for anyone.

Service was excellent. Food was very tasty. I can't eat a lot of steak, so the server brought me a smaller portion that wasn't on the menu. Thank you!!

The restaurant was nice, and the food was edible but did not have a great presentation. My server was extremely slow and took about 20 minutes to get to the table. In fact had she been any longer I would have left. I did notice others getting their foold at a slow pace also, but the restaurant was busy.

I had seen Fatz signs on freeway exits but never been to one of the restaurants. This restaurant is near the road in Shelby, so we stopped for lunch. It was GOOD. The Calabash Chicken was some of the best chicken fingers we have ever had. I tried the pot roast pie and was pleased with the choice. The pot... More

My wife and I went to dinner after a long work day. We were greeted at the door and lead t9 our table. We had a great waiter very friendly and attentive. He told us he was a rookie. We ordered and our salads were brought right out. Our drinks never got empty. The dinner itself was delicious. Cooked as... More

This was our first visit to any Fatz restaurant and they didn't disappoint. The server gave us a sample of their famous chicken, excellent by the way. My daughter thoroughly enjoyed her shrimp and grits, I enjoyed the chicken pot pie and my oldest and wife had chicken and pasta dishes. All delicious. The service was very good. I highly... More

The calabash chicken was fantastic, and the wait staff was very friendly! Our server, Alex, made our dining experience fun, and we were very satisfied with the food.

The food is okay, it is nice that they give you free chicken if you tell them that you haven't been there before. The only thing is that it seems to take very long to get the food there, even when its not busy. Not sure why but everything else is ok. Not amazing, just good.

Have gone there several times for either ribs or chicken fingers. Always have been very good until the last visit a few days ago. The ribs were over done and the cook was heavy handed with the seasoning. Quite salty and we could not finish our entrees. The waitress applied a discount and was very nice about it. As she... More
