With my husband working across the country (and sometimes outside of it), we move around quite a bit. Our latest move brought us to one of the oldest towns in South Carolina, Camden. For a city girl like myself, I do not enjoy any of the “southern downhome charm” of this town. To me, it looks old and near abandoned. But, in this “hole in the Earth” is by far, my favorite to go to restaurant. Not only is the food absolutely delicious, it’s very moderately priced, HEALTHY (which is amazing for a restaurant) and caters directly to my children, as well as myself. They are very versatile and will change anything printed on the menu to what you want and usually don’t charge a dime more for it.
Not only that, the TO-GO food is just as delicious as sitting down to eat, with the same portion sizes, flavor and value. The wait staff is excellent except for the “to-go” girl whom rarely gets a tip from me because she is extremely rude and will look over me to help her “regulars” before myself, even if I am in there first and my food is waiting. But I can’t base the whole of this restaurant on one rude woman. Everyone else is wonderful and overly accommodating! My children love eating here. For dessert, they each get a fresh spun cotton candy on a stick for 99 cents and we’re talking the size of their heads!
I have had the Hickory Burger, Seabreeze Spinach Salad, Calabash chicken, Parmesan encrusted Chicken Pasta, Calabash Chicken Wrap, BLT Sandwhich, Grilled Asparagus with Lemon Butter Sauce, Sweet Potato Fries, Cheese Fries, Scratch-made Mac n’ Cheese, Red-skinned Mashed Potatoes, Peanut Butter Pie and the BEST item on the menu, Loaded Baked Potato Soup. I probably get to-go potato soup twice a week for lunch or a light dinner. It’s filling, the flavor is always velvety and smooth as well as being very healthy! I have not had 1 thing at FATZ Cafe that I did not like. Everything is delicious and I can feed myself and the kids eating IN the restaurant for under $20 including tip!
If you’re traveling down the highway in the South and see a FATZ cafe sign, I highly suggest getting off at that exit and having yourself one hell of a meal!
