“I was sad to hear that The Fatted Calf will be closed for a while because of a fire.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2009

Their burgers and steak fries are great. They are a bit pricey, but that's to be expected in downtown Clayton. Avoid the place M-F from noon to one because it is crowded with jurors from the nearby courthouse. Saturday is a great time to visit The Fatted Calf, and I wish them a speedy recovery. They also have a swordfish sandwich, as well as tuna, both cooked on the grill.

“They make a tasty burger.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2009

The Fatted calf is a fun place. It seems really out of place in Clayton amid the faux-trendy establishments and squeezed by the tall office buildings. Next to Chipotle, I would say that this is THE bargain in Clayton.
I really like this place. It's different and fun. You walk in through their dark, long dinning hall area to order at the cafeteria style counter. All the people I've encountered working at the Fatted Cafe have been really nice.
I usually go for the regular burger with blue cheese. YUM. They have good fries too.
The fatted cafe is nothing fancy. But I like eating there. It has a feel like I am in the hull of a pirate ship or something. Cool stools and tables.
Go here if you want to try something a little different than the average Clayton/County fare.
