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

The calabash chicken is what they are known for and for good reason. I like their menu, very affordable. Friendly and helpful staff.

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...

We stopped in for dinner after a long day at the speedway. The facility is very clean and the staff is top notch. They have a full bar and many great choices on the menu.

The restaurant is very clean with plenty of parking and a quiet atmosphere with music in the background. We had been before but he menu is new and a little restricted. the breaded chicken and creaded shrimp were excellent as usual and the cole slaw is very good. The hushpuppies are overcooked and dry. Service was prompt and attentive.

Yes this is a chain style restaurant, but our meal and service was excellent. We have always had good food each time we have visited the various locations but this was excellent. The ribs were a pleasant surprise and some of the best I have had. Vegetables were cooked perfect and delicious. Our server was prompt and courteous.

The menu is blah, blah. Take a chance, you may win. I will go again, but it's not my first choice. It's high on a hill, just off Volunteer Parkway.

I would like to say thank you and highlight the wonder customer service experienced at this location. My friend and I ordered our meal which arrived surprisingly fast. Too fast for us to enjoy the salad & soup that came out after our entree had already arrived. The waitress apologized and said she would let the manager know. Kudos to... More
