Nice Sit down!

The place we always eat before we go to the lights at BMS! Never had a bad experience or bad food. Mainly basic food, but definitely good!

My husband and I ate at Fatz for Valentines day this year. We had to wait about 10 minutes for a table (no big deal, especially since it was the day before Valentines day at 7 pm). We waited at the bar and ordered some drinks. I ordered a "Blue Motorcycle"... omg AMAZING drink. The food was wonderful and our... More

last time there was a big disappointment. Food was either over or under cooked including chicken and my burger was very well done when I prefer the opposite. Server was considerate of our problems but the overall experience determined my last visit to this store

Every time I get back to Bristol I have to visit fatz. My mom had the ribs which were surprisingly good. I had the calabash shrimp and was happy with the huge portion! If you go try the fried green tomatoes. They are famous! The server will bring these amazing poppy seed rolls. You won't be able to quit eating... More

I could not say that Fatz is the "Best" restaurant, but it IS the best for the price range. Of course, you may get a better meal for $50 a plate, but that is not Fatz' market. For a mid-range restaurant, it is the "Best." We eat in and get carry out frequently. We eat there as a couple, with... More

Our family dines there usually two times per month. We haven't had a bad experience yet. The kids like the ribs, chicken pot pie and hamburgers. I love their salad with grilled salmon. The appetizers are good too. Best of all, the service is great...always friendly and welcoming. Plus, Fatz is known to be good for the community and give... More

We go to Fatz once or twice a month, sometimes once a week. They have a good selection of foods at reasonable prices. They are always willing to make changes to the ingredients that can be added or deleted to a menu item. We love the salads made with spinach rather than lettuce. They do not charge extra for small...

2nd visit not impressed. Ordered the Hickory Burger...Burger was over cooked, bun was soggy, and was supposed have cheese on it I but could not tell. Fries were under cooked. My mother ordered the loaded potato soup as a starter and it was flavorless and she did not eat it. Her entree was the chopped steak and was OK. Service... More

My husband and I have been visiting Bristol, TN in the spring and summer for the last three years for the Nascar races and though we had noticed Fatz restaurant, we hadn't tried it. We decided to try it out this past August and were so pleased that we did. The wait staff was super kind, helpful to us first-timers,... More
