If your traveling on the Interstate south from, say, Jersey to Savannah, as we were, and are looking for a convenient lunch stop where you can sit down, shake off the travel blues, and be rested for the next leg of your journey; you can’t beat Fatz.

This is the second time we've eaten here and it will be the last. The first toned a couple of months ago we found tuned foods mediocre at best. We tried it again tonight and the pot roast sandwich was skimpy and fair. I asked for a medium rare hamburger and was told I could only have it medium. What... More

I had the Parmesan-encrusted chicken pasta to go, and it was ready in 15 minutes, no complains there and I really enjoyed it. The chicken was well marinated as stated, and I would definitely order it again. It's actually my second visit to that same Fatz and both were take out orders and on both occasions I was please with... More

We were staying nearby on a rainy night after a long day's drive. Our desk clerk suggested Fatz. Although we were on a busy street, Fatz was the only restaurant I saw. Everyone seemed to be having a bit of a wait on a Wednesday night even though there seemed to be several empty booths and tables in addition to... More

We are, family of 4 were traveling from Orlando, Fl to NYC (home). While gasing up in the area in Florance, we decided to stop by and eat at the place we have never experienced before. The food tasted really good, the server, Caitlin was great. Kids enjoyed their experience. We will definitely go back...

This was recommended by the hotel we stayed in and we were not disappointed. There was quite a wait to be seated but the staff did the best they could and there was seating outside to wait. The staff were very friendly and fast and always checked to see if there was anything else they could do. The food was... More

Had dinner at Fatz Cafe. The ribs with Bourbon Street sauce and the Top Sirloin with mushroom and onion topping were both very good. Portions were perfect for satisfying your hunger without feeling bloated afterwards. Service was good too. Prices were reasonable. For Gluten Free travelers, the menu does indicate vegetarian and gluten-free. However, there is no indication that adjustments... More

My wife and I have two traveling rules ... Don't eat at places we have at home and avoid chain restaurants. Well rolling through Florence yesterday we need gas so I got off the interstate and we saw Fatz beside the gas station and since we don't have one we stopped. For a chain the food was good and the...

We decided to try Fatz again after having a good dinning experience at another one of their other restaurants in S.C. Just as before, we had a short wait ahead. People like Fatz! It's a small Southern restaurant chain. We like that they have a nice décor, clean surroundings, simple menu and friendly wait staff. We were told it would... More
