So enjoyed our first meal in Asheville at FATZ! Terrific chicken fried steak meal and delicious flakey crust on chicken pot pie! Our server, Devon was Soooooo Sweet! The hostess was so friendly and checked on frequently by all! We were blessed by this experience!

Visiting Asheville for the first time. Fatz was recommended and we were not disappointed. The Southern Sampler is a must, especially the calabash chicken and hot pimento cheese dip !
