The food was great and inexpensive. The server who is from Orlando, FL (I forgot his name) was excellent. He patiently explained the best place to go and fun things to do in Franklin NC. This is the only place I found after 8 pm...More

This was our second visit to Fatz and we were disappointed. Most recently we went on a busy Saturday evening around 7pm. So no problem with waiting 20 minutes to be seated. However when we noticed the hostess was spending time just talking with servers...More

Great service. Be prepared for large portions! I had the shrimp po'boy and thought I was hungry enough to eat a full order. Nope. Lots of options to choose from on the menu.

Horrible food, waitress who seemed on drugs or didn't care about her job at all. Food was messed up and terrible, especially for the price! I visit franklin a few time a year and will never even consider this place again. Gross.

Don't visit Fatz often but when we do, it's always good and pleasant. I think most everything is fried but then again, it is called Fatz! Food is good and reasonably priced.
