Pretty good fare for non local establishment.

Impressively good food considering this is not a local restaurant. I would recommend the hamburgers and sandwiches.

Have liked Fatz in the past but was disappointed on Saturday night. My husband's food was borderline cold and my fried shrimp not crispy golden with the breading/coating soft and mushy. I enjoyed the grits but that was all. The service was okay but so dissatisfied with the food.

Fatz is different. They not only have great food and prices but the staff really go out of their way to please. I enjoy eating here and especially love the fried green tomato appetizer. Fatz's specialty is their calabash chicken and it is really amazing.

We went here on what turned out to be Seniors Tuesday. The chicken is buttermilk soaked for 24 hours then breaded and cooked. It is the best I have ever had. The ribs are also awesome. The drinks are very goof too. Service is outstanding. We will go back many times while we are visiting Bristol. They have many locations... More

Great family restaurant. Chicken tenders are crunchy tender goodness. Lots of menu choices for the whole family, kid friendly. Steaks, burgers, shrimp, sandwiches. Great cheese grits and sweet potato fries. Cajun firecracker sticks for the heat lovers. Its all good.

The servers are well coached, the menu is complete and the recipes are unique. The decor is well appointed and inviting. We have been there for lunch and dinner and both were successful experiences. Highly recommended!

This is the second time I've had a hamburger at Fatz and AWESOME is the word! I was just going to order a regular cheeseburger but the waitress... More

Fatz's is always open later than most places here in Bristol, so you can still be able to get a good meal and not have to go to a fast food place and use the drive thru, so glad they stay open later than most places and you can get a nice meal without a bar sceen and loud people,... More

I went to Fatz last week on (roughly 4-15-15) & I ordered a steak (Sirloin) medium rare & it was done close to what I like. The green beans weren't that great for me but overall it was a good trip. I don't have a lot of negative to say but it does seem that they are not consistent with... More
