Fatz Cafe ~ Blairsville GA

One of the great things about living in the South is Fatz Cafe! We don't have Claim Jumper, like we did back home in California, but we do have Fatz! We see them wherever we go and know we can always count on a great meal, with great service at Fatz Cafe! 

After our visit to the beautiful mountains of North Georgia, we drove past a Fatz Cafe sign and flipped around and had to try the Georgia version! We had a great dinner at Fatz!

One of the best things about Fatz is the Poppy Seed Rolls. Wow! Tasty little round balls of dough, fried and delicious, served with a golden honey butter! Your server will bring baskets and baskets of these wonderful Poppy Seed Rolls to your table. They are delicious - but very filling and lets face it, horrible for you! But so good! The Poppy Seed Rolls truly live up to the restaurant's name!

We were dying of thirst and our waitress kept the iced tea coming. Naturally, being a Southern restaurant, they have all the sweet tea you can drink if that is your cup of tea!

We all started with salads. Crispy iceberg and romaine, with tomotoes, croutons, cukes and dressing. Fatz actually makes 3 different salads, a House, Veggie or Caeser. Dave got the Caeser and enjoyed it thoroughly!

For entrees, I chose the 12 oz Top Sirloin steak, which came delicious and juicy, very tender, along with a signature Fatz dish as the side, the amazing Stone-ground Cheese Grits! Be still my heart! They are delicious, slightly cheesy, buttery warm and wonderful grits.

Dave got the World Famous Calabash Chicken, another Fatz signature dish! Fatz has perfected the Calabash, with over a half pound of plump, marinated chicken tenders. They bread them and then fry them to chicken perfection. They come with a honey mustard dip, and they are just yummy! 

We often have one of us order the steak, the other the Calabash Chicken, and split them. We like a bit of both!

Emily got the Old Fashioned Cheeseburger and had a great time chowing that half pound burger down! It is enormous - huge - with all the normal fixins! Lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, pickles, cheddar, mustard and mayo. They even add bacon for FREE, how cool is that? Emily wanted French fries, so she had the fries.

We finished our dinner with a Carolina Peach Cobbler. A huge piece of Southern style peach cobbler (we were in Georgia peach country!) smothered with peaches, rich buttery, cinnamony deliciousness! Served a la mode, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream we scarfed this wonderful treat down!

We have always had great service at Fatz! They want you to feel right at home, from the moment you walk in.
