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

Food was fair. My wife didn't like her fish and I got the ribs. Fair but fatty. Service was good and apps were tasty. Also the menu had a few Gluten Free options. We will try this place again but we don't have very high hopes...

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
