Place had really friendly staff. Huge, huge portions, so come hungry! Also, expect a wait because the various locations are quite popular. Liked the potatoes (American fries) the best. Locations are very bare bones, diner style places, so don't expect luxurious surroundings, but still a nice place to grab breakfast with friends.

Fantastic food in a café like setting. I didn't think the Omelet would fill me up, but I left stuffed. The service was great too. If you want to get in and out quickly you could, be we enjoyed having conversations with the "locals"

I'm glad we went to Fat Nat's Eggs for breakfast. The food was great, fairly quick for how packed the restaurant was, and most importantly, the portions were HUGE. In addition, the the service was good and the prices were reasonable. Highly recommend. You won't be disappointed.

My family and I were just in town for 24 hours and happened to see Fat Nat's the night before and made a comment about the name. When looking for breakfast places the next morning, we decided to give it a try. We are so glad we did! The waitresses were friendly and the service was quick. I ordered a... More

I can never finish my pancakes, so I always have a snack for later. Friendly staff and fast service. They always do a great job. Check em out if you... More

If you love breakfast ~ This is for you! The portions are huge and the flavor so are abundant in everything you order. Each time I have visited I have tried something different and they simply know their stuff. Make sure to come very hungry and with many friends ~ this is a great place to spend time catching up.

This is the BEST place to go to start your day out right! We stopped there for breakfast before going to see JESSE DUPLANTIS (who is our phenomenal lil Cajun Preacher) Sunday morning. The staff treated us like Royalty, and our lil waitress was absolutely AMAZING! The food was to die for too.

Small portions for meals. Big prices. The best part was the pancakes. They smelled like vanilla extract. They tasted like vanilla extract. I felt as if I drank a full bottle of vanilla extract. I was wishing I would have saved some money and got fast food, or stayed home to eat some cereal. Great services. Seating sucks, feels like... More
