The town rolls up early on Sunday night. I arrived late and really didn't want a fast food dinner. Fatz was a great solution. Easy drive from the Hampton Inn and very good food. I had their famous chicken fingers with honey mustard sauce, coleslaw and baked potato soup. All three were very good. The service was very good too.... More

I have eaten here many times and am never disappointed. From the warm greeting the moment you enter the door, to the great food, sparkling clean bathrooms and immaculate restaurant you won't be disappointed. Thank you for providing a nice dining experience at a reasonable price! Kudos to the management for taking pride in your establishment!

Nothing really special about this Fatz. The Chowder, yesterday, was very, very watered down. I have eaten at Fatz all over the SE and I will try a different Fatz next time out. I had 1 main waitress but had 2 other unknown water/waitresses that did not server the meal?

Nothing special. Typical chain restaurant. Shrimp were not great. Chicken strips good. Serves the purpose.

I had never heard of this restaurant chain, let alone visit it. The staff was extremely accommodating. Our server was very attentive to our needs. When the Manager found out that we were new customers, she came to our table and told us all about the history of their restaurant chain and about their specialty, which is the chicken. It... More

I had visited this restaurant previously with my brother. He remembered how much I enjoyed the chicken (and the rolls) so we returned for another meal!

Im a vegetarian and always order a potato soup and some appetizers or sides in my Hometown FATZ. We have visited this location during our travel. The soup was blended with water, and appetizer was so over salted, that I had to leave it along.

Husband had a ribeye and I had ribs and shrimp. I'm hesitant about ordering (large)shrimp from a chain but these were surprisingly good. The steak and ribs were both tender and flavorful. Service was excellent too. We will definitely return when we're in the area.

Great waitress. This FATZ needs cleaning. Door to kitchen is filthy and floor in kitchen is filthy. Food was ok but FATZ in Morganton is much nicer, cleaner and food was better. Outside of building also needs to be painted. Come on FATZ - up your game - just because this is Marion doesn't justify lowering your corporate standards.

Entered restaurant at 8:25 pm. Promptly seated. Appeared to be about 20 other customers all eating. We were the only ones newly seated. Waited and waited and waited. Not one waiter came to greet, take order, etc. the waiters were all milling about in one area focused on each other. After 10 minutes we left. Do not recommend this restaurant... More
