Great service, awesome food and great atmosphere. Very clean. Children loves the Mac and Cheese. I had the potatoe soup and salad, we all enjoyed our lunch. Especially my daughter and kids and her mother in law who came here from a catestrophic hurricane.

Went with others who had been before. They were very disappointed in the new menu and the food. Servers not very helpful, seemed untrained. Even ribs were not as good as previous visits. Rolls still great.

When I'm in Franklin, NC, FATZ is my favorite place to go; or should I say used to be. New owners have taken over and totally ruined the place. The only good thing left is Paula the expert bartender. Everything is labeled Calabash style, food...More

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
