This is place is rated very well and I understand the appeal. It’s in old downtown Frankfort, and the atmosphere is lively. The service here is so bad, it will actually effect your entire meal. We come in and are seated and had 2 children...with us, no one provided us with a kids menu. No biggie however we waited 15 minutes before anyone came to our table and when our waitress finally did, we asked if they had kids menus and she said yes. So she left and then went to go ring up someone else’s bill and completely forgot. Someone else wound up getting us the kids menus. Then the waitress comes back and asked if we wanted some drinks, it’s been 20 minutes of course we want drinks. We put in the drinks and then she asked if we would like to put in our order so we jumped on it because we understand she rarely visits our table. Now mind you the restaurant was half empty. It’s not like she was overwhelmed, surprisingly we thought it was pretty slow for Fourth of July weekend. So as she’s taking our orders we start with my wife, and then we only get halfway down the table. Mind you we have six people at our table. By the time she gets to the third person she says so is that all? I look at her and try not to be a jerk but I said, not yet everybody at the table is going to put an order in and she smiled and said OK. But seriously, we have six people at a table halfway through taking orders, you’re seriously going to ask is that it? Half of our table hasn’t even put an order in yet. We put the order in and my daughters kids taco comes out with a flour tortilla. As the man is putting it down I let him know that we requested a corn tortilla with meat and he said all the kids meals comes with flour, I said yeah that’s OK can I just get a corn tortilla then? Then he grabs our daughters play in walks back there all pissed off and quickly brings it back. Was it really that big of a deal, obviously this place has an attitude and entitlement issue. They believe since they are one of your choices in the area that people like, that the service is absolutely horrendous and lacking. This will definitely catch up with them as more places open up. The real kicker was we ordered guacamole, asked for no onion but they say “the guacamole is pre made”. Really? Every Mexican restaurant In the area makes their guacamole to order. A better option if you want Mexican is Amigos in Frankfort. They have better tasting food, and is family owned and they have great service and make everything to order.More

Normally I don't write reviews, but this was my second time here and I have been to better places. Drinks were just sub par. Food was just as bad. Two of us had steak and chicken Fajitas and the steak and chicken was very dried...out. Three other people had burritos and they were just okay. Not filled very much steak was also dry. The other person had enchiladas and the cheese and sauce was burnt on the them. Service was okay. The person filling our water kept spilling it all ove the table. Spent er $250 with tip. Prices are very high for the quality of food. I really wouldn't reccommend going here. Very disappointed.More

Very good bar to watch sports, food was ok and the crowd very lively. The bar tenders are very generous with the drinks and the environment itself is very good, it’s located in a shopping plaza.

We have had consistently good food and great service every time we are at Fat Rosie’s since they opened. The staff always seems like they are having a great time and they are super engaged with their customers. One of our favorite places, especially on...a Friday after work or for Sunday brunch.More

The minute you walk in to the salsa and homemade chips to main course our 2 families loved our meal. The decor was fun.

Fat Rosie is overrated. I was surprised how crowded the restaurant was considering we are in a pandemic. Over priced, small portions, margaritas were not served in margaritas glasses, Tequila shots served without lime, the water was not refilled, chips and salsa arrived with the...meal. We had to ask for more salsa. We were not asked if wanted dessert. The waitress was not friendly and unbothered. My first and last visit here.More

We had a group dinner and we’re a party of 8. We were seated right away on a busy Sunday night. I would highly recommend reservations! We ordered food so we can all share the tacos Cauliflower Tacos - the best vegetarian tacos I have...had ! Order it and you won’t regret. Chicken Tacos - Solid choice Fish Tacos - perfectly fried and fresh Chicken Fajitas- they were a perfect portion for 2 to share. Veg Quesadilla- Perfect appetizer or meal for 2 people. They had solid margaritas and we all tried different flavors.More

I have been coming to this place since it opened. Nice choice of adult beverages and plenty of options on the menu. This visit I found the seating much tighter than I would have anticipated in the post-covid world and, as usual, the music (while...festive) is 9 out of 10 loud making conversation a bit awkward as I personally had to use my loudest inside voice to talk to my friend seated directly across from me at a high top table. It is a bit on the pricey side but a fun addition to downtown Frankfort dining (just turn down the music).More

Had heard good things had to try. Yes one complaint the sound absorption is terrible. All you hear is all the voices, the music playing can't even hear. Food very good, service excellent. Decor nice!
