The regular menu prices are a little high. Lunch prices were much more reasonable. I especially loved them having a high score from the health department. We showed up just after they opened at 11 am on MLK day (Monday). The waitress was really phenomenal! She actually brought me a drink refill at the exact moment that I realized I... More

I had the traditional BBQ baby back ribs and the loaded French fries. The sauce was just the right thickness. I enjoyed the meal. The server was very friendly and kept our drinks filled constantly and brought extra bread and napkins. The food was slow to come out. Definitely recommend it for dinner.

The moment we walked in the door we were treated like royalty. Manager greeted us within 10 minutes, server was outstanding. Food selection is excellent. Since we'd never been before, we received free samples of chicken and soup. Rolls are complimentary, super warm and moist at the table within 3 minutes. I don't know why people wait all night outside... More

Not impressed with the food or the wait staff. Tried to order a large house salad but they did not have (In hind site I guess I should have ordered 2 side salads) . Not very accommodating . Service was slow and wait staff not very friendly. Will not return.

Went with friends for a meal with about 8. Took some time to get out, but food was OK. My wife got the blackened fish and shrimp, too salty. Don't do the blackened, period. I got the ground steak, it was cold when I got it, but they would have warmed it. Whenever you get more than 4 people anywhere... More

And food order. Waited 25 minutes and nothing. Husband ask if there was a cook in back. Never offered drink refill or more rolls. Finally... More

This is one of my favorite places to eat. But what happened last trip. We ordered fried green tomato appatizer, both ordered their famous chicken. One upgraded to a baked sweet potato for a side. The salad was fresh and great,but the fried green tomatoes was not done. The chicken the worst ever. And the sweet potato was so small... More

The service and the food was okay, just nothing special. My sirloin was cooked well but I didn't like the sweet fried brussel sprouts. They were definitely sweet from whatever sauce they put on them.

This our go-to place for eating out on the east side. Have never been disappointed with any meal we have ordered. Only wish the menu would expand a bit. I know it would be good.

We like this Fatz in Athens, GA. It is near our granddaughter at UGA. We have celebrated her birthday there and just met for lunch. It is conveniently located. Food was delicious. We had fish and chips and I had salad. Fresh made with rolls that are really good.

Thank Linda A
