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

After getting to our hotel after a long drive, we looked up restaurants in the area. After searching for a bit, this is the place we landed on. Reviews were high and this particular brand is not available back home. When you first come up to the place, there's a nice little hill to go up (keep in mind, roads... More

If you haven't tried Fatz yet, then you are in for a treat. The prices are right and the food is fantastic. The poppyseed rolls that are served with sweet butter at every meal are a reason to live! The portions are big enough to take some home for lunch the next day. The food is yummy. Thanks chef! All... More

The rolls and honey butter are outstanding. For an appetizer, try the fried pickled okra, hard to beat. We had the Pimento Cheese Burger and the Coastal Chicken Burger. We agreed the Burger was better than the chicken, but both were very good. Service was phenomenal.

We eat at Fatz frequently. We get a spinach salad to-go weekly and eat in almost weekly. We have several favorites that are always cooked just right. One thing we really like about Fatz is the fact that you can get a sweet potato. Most restaurants only have white potatoes. The service has also always been good. I do regret... More

We enjoy this restaurant when we stay in Bristol, TN. The food is awesome and the service very friendly and good. They have some senior Tuesday specials. The rolls/biscuits are deep fried and very good. I have never seen these before. There are many dishes to choose from but I can't pass up the Calabash buttermilk chicken tenders with honey/mustard...
