Fatt is a great place to eat. It's one of McDowells best restaurants. The food is awesome. And the servers are even better

After a not so great experience, at Fatz, my husband and I decided to try it again... for our 6 month anniversary dinner. :D The menu has changed and is more updated, the staff was friendly, and the food was great. We really enjoyed our time together and the good food. I would suggest trying the southern sampler with the... More

Six of us stopped in for a late meal. Four of us had never been here before so the waiter gave us calabash chicken samples. Very tender and moist. We ordered the chowder, potato soup, fried pickles, chicken tenders, coleslaw & they gave us many rolls. All tasted good and we all agreed it was good food for a decent... More

When I first moved here, I said I would not wanna eat at a place called Fatz. As Marion's bucket of fast food chains made it difficult to even eat out, I found myself at Fatz. I would say you can compare it to a Applebee's. It corporate food but consistant service. Clean and friendly. Also, very important is they... More

Worst food ever delivered to my table. Could not eat much of it.the shrimp beginnings was floating in water, not on ice. The fried green tomatoes was not good, fried frozen is my guess. The server should not have allowed it to go on the table. French fries about 10 seconds from burnt. Don't waste your money at this location.... More

Our chicken was pink.. And when asked the staff said that's just how it was "they promise". I'm sorry but correctly cooked chicken isn't pink and rubbery; it has a different texture. We weren't apologised to, and no attempt to fix it was made in fact they fought us on it. The food made us sick. Never again.

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!
