Good food in spite of its name.

This restaurant is a Mecca for fried food enthusiasts. They claim that their frying process uses lighter oil and less breading. And there are plenty of fried dishes. We chose broiled chicken, which was very good. The side dishes were generous and tasty. The wait staff were friendly and efficient... read more

Great side down restaurant with terrific food. Immediately off I-81 at the Dublin, VA exit, you can catch lunch or dinner and then decide to look at all the New River Valley has to offer. Museums, bike and hiking trails, Claytor Lake State Park and Hogan's Reservoir, Yankees Baseball at historic Calfee Park (June to Sept), concerts in Jackson Park... More

I love Fatz because of its extensive menu, consistently good food, and fair prices. Perfect for lunch on a work day!

Real plastic food; imaginative where it need not be. One of a chain of fourteen or so. The name says a lot about the appeal of the menu

My family and I stopped for lunch today at Fatz in Dublin, VA on our way home today. Boy was this a mistake! On arrival we were given a "pager" and told that it would be a 20-25 minute wait due to the lunch crowd from church. After about 15 min we were seated. We got our drinks and soon... More

First-food was great. We had the Calabash chicken salad and the steak salad. Very, very good. You do have to try one of the Calabash choices. Second-Service was another story; took forever, was not provided refills on drinks, and was not asked if we wanted dessert. Our waitress sat down with customers or friends in a nearby booth. We will... More

If you are a first time visitor you get a sample of the calabash chicken. It is wonderful. I also got the red skinned mashed potatoes and the mac and cheese. Both were very good.
