Inside the Shed

Welcome to our table

Whether you’re a longtime regular or a traveler wandering through town, our goal is to make you feel right at home.  So welcome to Fatz!  You know, we opened our doors back in 1988 with a signature dish, Calabash Chicken.  And our first restaurant wasn’t fancy.  I mean, it was a converted peach stand, for goodness sake.  But who needs fancy when the food is famous?  And so it began with World Famous Calabash Chicken served with, dare we say it, world famous friendliness.  Now, 31 years later, we’re still serving up both. You could say we’ve upped the ante on food with amazing Southern-inspired, Chef-designed steaks, seafood, ribs and more.  But you’ll have to judge for yourself.  So come on by and we’ll set you a place at Our Table.

Famous & Fresh  


Our World Famous Calabash chicken is synonymous with the Fatz Cafe name.

Why?  It’s made the Fatz way – fresh chicken tenders, buttermilk brined for 24 hours, then hand-breaded with our top-secret peppery seasoning mix and lightly fried to a golden brown.  You won’t find a more delicious serving of chicken around.


We’re talking local and regional ingredients from farms across the Southland.  Then we prepare each dish when customers order.  And our portions will make you say…WOW.

And don’t forget those famous Fatz poppy seed rolls baked fresh all day and free with every meal.

Why? ‘Cause Fatz the way we like it.
