“Fun place good food”
Reviewed February 11, 2012

Visited both locations. Our first visit in San Luis and our second visit out by the pier in Avila. Enjoyed both times we were there. Good food and decent price. Wish we would have discovered pier location earlier in our trip.

“A fun little place to eat while on your Central Coast adventure.”
Reviewed January 30, 2012

Good old American food is served with a nice, higher scale quality! The location is perfect: right in the harbor.The food is great, and a good value for the price.

“Good food and great value”

We ate here and split a chili burger with fries. My husband and I couldn't even finish our plates. Generous helpings and a friendly server.

“Unpretentious diner, good food”
Reviewed January 13, 2012

Huge meal and very tasty. Good price. A very basic diner, not fancy but great view of the bay. Seems to be favored by RVers. Down home cooking.

“Fast Food, great for post-beach eating”
Reviewed January 5, 2012

When you are grungy, sandy and sunburned, nothing like a fish taco at Fat Cats. All the kids can pile in with thier flip-flops and all can get the fried thing of their choice. We always hit it after a long day at the beach.
