When Fats first came they had very good food, great prices, good service and good choices of food. However, the last couple of time I have eaten the menu choices have decreased, the prices have increased, and the quality of some of the dishes I've ordered have not been as good as I have remembered them being. Also, I the... More

Admittedly, I was curious about this restaurant by the name. When I learned they have Calabash Chicken I decided this was an eatery I needed to check out. The restaurant was difficult to get into (Google Maps was off a little bit about the entrance - it is hidden by a corner) but that was easily rectified. The ambiance had... More

We have been here several times and have always had great service. The food has always been great. Our waitress last night was very good and the food was great. The chicken strips are great. The rolls and butter are the best around. We will definitely be back again.

Pros - not busy at 2pm on a Saturday, Food choices were desirable, clean, polite waiter. Cons - fries with Calabash chicken meal was greasy, flimsy, and tasted old, buffalo sauce had a tangy pineapple taste, pimento cheese hush puppies were burnt and "cheese-less", potato soup tasted like flavored water. I will choose another place for the same price or... More

I visited on 11-14-16. I ordered the calabash chicken sandwich with fries. The waitress was good, a little slow at times but good. The food was good. There are 2 things I have to say that is a negative. 1) I ordered my sandwich with NO lettuce, tomato but when I get my sandwich, it has lettuce & tomato on... More

Our party of 6 was greeted warmly and seated within a few minutes. Menu had several choices and we each ordered different items. I chose the chicken pot pie and enjoyed it very much. The crust was yummy!!! The reason for the 3 on the star chart is the area around our table was filthy. They pulled a table over... More

First experience at this restaurant and location. Drove by several times but finally decided to eat here. Glad I did!!! The staff opened the door on our way in and seated us! Then the food was absolutely delicious! Hot and everything we ordered correctly. I will go back and I would recommend to everyone!!!

Great place for a family dinner! We were immediately seated, and the service was outstanding. The food, while delicious, was so plentiful we couldn't finish it. Maybe it was because we are so many yummy rolls before our food arrived. My favorite part of the meal was the Brussels sprouts which were sweet roasted. So good! The only thing missing... More
