Fat's Chicken and Waffles is one of our favorite locations for a meal, ever.

It’s located in the Central District, where the only thing better than the food may be the company. And the food is something else - made by a chef whose family roots go back to Louisiana in the 1800's.

The Red Beans and Rice and Cajun Shrimp are true Southern cuisine.

And if you like fried food, they have some of the best, from drumsticks, to green tomatoes, to catfish.

Be sure to order a plate of the restaurant's namesake, too. An order of two waffles topped with ½ lb of fried chicken or two chicken legs.

On the Menu:

  • Fried Green Tomato and Shrimp Remoulade Salad
  • Chicken & Waffles
  • Shrimp and Grits
  • Fried Oyster
  • Shrimp Mac N' Cheese (Happy Hour)
  • Biscuits & Andouille Gravy (Brunch)

You'll find Fat's on the corner of East Cherry Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Way.

They're open every day but Monday, for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
