The steak was top notch, the red peach sangria was even better! I highly recommend Fatz. The service was exceptional -- there when you need them, but not smothering. Go to Fatz.

I love the all-you-can-eat ribs. i get them often. They are the best ribs I have found in Tennessee or Virginia. I only wish you could choose other sides other than slaw and fries. There other food is also excellent. We eat at Fatz at least once a week, usually twice.

We have eaten there twice only because we believe in giving places two opportunities. The first one was poor the second was worse. The food is average at best and the service both times was terrible. Waiting for a waiter, waiting for our food, and even waiting for our check. The portion size is very good and I believe is... More

We ate at the Bristol Fatz . We have eaten here many times before, this time we were very disappointed. Our server Cam got our drinks and our food. But that was really all we saw of him at our table. We did see him playing with fellow employs tossing around what looked like a ball. At one point he... More

There's a consistency to Casual Dining establishments that makes it very hard for any one chain (or location) to distinguish itself from the rest of the pack. Service was excellent, especially once they found out we were first-timers. THAT even warranted a visit from the manager - along with a free appetizer. Food was average-good, and portions were what one... More

This was our first trip to Fatz. So, we received a free dessert. We also got a free appetizer, as did a number of other tables. The appetizer was there famous Calabash Chicken. It was just ok. The all-you-can-eat ribs were very good. The kids liked the Mac & Cheese, but the fries were overly salty and seasoned for them.... More

I'm one of those people that tend to always find restaurants with ribs. I believe that a good rack of ribs, done well, is hard to beat. And Fatz in Bristol has about the best ribs around. I know because I've tried about all of them, and can tell you where the best ribs are in, oh, about a 500... More
