We have eaten in this Fatz many times and the only consistent thing I can say about it is how inconsistent it is. My husband loves the calabash chicken, which the original, is very good. But the new menu isn't very good. I ordered bourbon calabash chicken as my entrée, with a side salad and collard greens, my husband ordered... More

This would not have been my first choice, but my local friends wanted to come here so we did. The place was actually very busy and seemed to function well, but service was slow and the food took too long to be served. As I said on the title, it was OK but nothing special. It was average with hints... More

I never used to be impressed with Fatz, but lately their food and service have both increased in quality. Beware if you get the fried bologna though...it's completely black on the outside! (Eww)

There aren't many choices for dining that aren't fast food in this area. Wedged next to some sits Fatz, easy to drive by and miss. We hadn't been here in a while but had memories of a good meal here in the past so tried it again. I really enjoy the smiling and attentive staff, the cleanliness of the restaurant... More

We always get take out so I cant speak for the service. Except the staff at the take counter are friendly. I would suggest ALWAYS double checking your food before you leave, especially the condiments that go with your food. I've only had one bad steak here and they made it right when I came back. We enjoy FATZ.

We came here while visiting family in Lincolnton, we had a fairly large group and the hostess I talked to originally told me she couldn't accommodate us, which turned me off a bit- we had 10 people. Luckily another member of our group talked to someone else and was able to get us a table. The food was great, our... More

Sometimes you have to wait but the food is worth it. If you're in a hurry, eat in the bar area. Booths or counter and faster service. The hot bread is a favorite, and it's hard not to fill up on that!! Every plate we have ever gotten was wonderful food. A family atmosphere. Highly recommended

I do not understand how this place does the business that it does! I've only had 1 decent meal there & of course it was more expensive than it was worth. I've been served under cooked shrimp that was very greasy also. The crazy thing was is the chicken tenders where over cooked & not edible. They had to remake... More

My husband and I were greeted at the door by a genuine warm smile and a welcoming greeting. We were asked our preference of seating and she delivered us to a nice booth. Immediately, Stephan our waiter, appeared and took our drink requests and in 2 seconds was back with drinks and hot rolls! YUMMY! We saw the menu had... More

Arrived for dinner at 5pm and found the parking lot kinda empty. My wife thought this might not be a good sign but not the case. Upon entering we were greeted and seated quickly. The current 98.5 health rating caught my eye. Another couple and us were the only ones in our seating area. The waiter was prompt and bought... More
