When we are in this area, if it is lunch or dinner time we stop here. But even favorites fall short at times. We've not been a huge fan of Fatz since they adopted the prison tray serving platters. But we felt we'd give 'em...More

We like Fatz menu and were not disappointed with our favorite choices. This was our first visit to this location, but it lived up to our expectations. The service was excellent and the food was consistent with the quality we received at other Fatz locations.

Would not return here again. Hard to find any healthy choices on the menu- even the healthy choices are made unhealthy by the obvious levels of sodium they add to them. Kid's meals had generous portions, but they even make the grilled chicken unappealing to...More
