We promise: Fresh, delicious homemade food, genuine southern hospitality and a spirited community connection.
When you step into a FATZ, you'll notice a warm, authentic atmosphere right away. And you'll feel it every second you're here. It's in the friendly smile that greets you as you walk through the door. It's in the genuine, attention-to-detail service displayed by each one of our associates. It's in the outstanding meal prepared fresh with the best ingredients, that arrives at your table. Here you'll feel special and you'll be treated like family. That is our mission. It always has been.
FATZ was born in 1988, when a few friends got together and decided they'd had enough of those huge, you've-seen-one-you've-seen-them-all type of casual dining restaurants. They wanted a place that was different. That had ties to the surrounding area. That was set up to serve the community, not some corporate bottom line.
While the first restaurant wasn't exactly fancy-it was a converted roadside peach stand-it had what mattered most. Real, honest to goodness hometown people, serving real delicious American food for really great prices. That simple formula has been driving our success for over 22 years. And it's helped develop a loyal following with restaurants in small towns and mid-sized communities throughout the Southeast.
Today, we're still serving classic favorites and offering a good value. Our restaurants are run by folks who are an active part of their communities and who have a vested interest in serving you, our guests. If something isn't right, we'll make it right. We want to take care of you. After all that's what family member do for one another. Welcome to FATZ!
