We are Fatz Southern Kitchen

We opened our doors and served platefuls of Southern favorites on our first table back in 1988. In a converted roadside peach shed, we introduced the South to our World Famous Calabash Chicken®. Though the technique originated in Calabash, North Carolina, Fatz is now the home of Calabash style cooking. Buttermilk brined for 24 hours, hand breaded in our special blend of spices and fried to a golden brown, it’s true what they say; we are the Kings of Calabash.

 We’ve passed down time honored recipes, from generation to generation. But our goal remains the same: to serve folks Southern favorites, with a smile, at restaurants run by their friends and neighbors.

Fatz is a place where tradition is born, relationships are made strong and new memories are created. We’re your go-to when it’s time to celebrate the best things in life. Whether hosting a gathering of friends or sitting down with the family for supper, we are thankful you chose our Southern Kitchen. Cheers, y’all!
