Fat Willies is a favorite for fried chicken and whole catfish. And in addition to great food, the staff are friendly and make you feel welcome. Even the owner circulates the restaurant and visits with all.

Was looking for a place to get good fried chicken at a reasonable price and was very happy. The chicken was really good and was not dried out like some other places. Good portions at a very reasonable price.
