If you enjoy mexican food this place is great. You can seat yourself, order at the front counter, and look around at the ahop nearby. They also have cookies for dessert.

We discovered this by accident on a walk around town. Really good food and ultra fast service. As Southern Living put it "like the Varsity in Atlanta every southerner should try Fat Mama's".

Food is great! Enjoyed our visit and will be back soon! This place has a really great atmosphere! Has a Jimmy Buffet feel to it.

Love the building. Margaritas were the best here. Food was ok. They seem to be popular for their Margaritas.

Cute little place with a patio. There are no servers so they can concentrate on food prep. The tamales are tasty, especially when paired with their famous "Knock you naked" margaritas. Fire and ice pickles are also quite good! It is a fun spot and...More
