Been here a couple times. Service has been slow and the place is filthy. The wings are not that good either. Not sure why there are so many good ratings for the wings.

Have frequented this pub for over 8 years, and over the past year the service and food quality has deminished. Our take out orders are always wrong, and/or is always missing something such as sauces, dressings, entire salads,... and the jumbo mushrooms are now nickle to quarter sized at best. Takes over an hour to get take out orders, and... More

After RV Supershow @ Fairgrounds, starting searching around for a place to grab some wings, burgers & beer and found this place in the back of a shopping plaza. Gave them a try and wasn't disappointed. Seated ourselves & was immediately greeted by a friendly smiling face providing the specials for the nite & taking our drink order. The Cajun... More

I've been eating from Uncle Fats for over 5 yrs. I've always enjoyed the Cajun Wings and the Hot ones also. It's been awhile since I've last visited, and I think that's what I want tonight. See you soon Uncle Fats

The burgers are all good, so is everything else. Just be careful who places your order when you call one in for to go.The Manager, Kathy, can't get it right so be sure to ask for someone else. Trish, Megan, Latrish, Cindy who is the owner and the rest.... they all get it right the first time.

Danielle is like the daughter to us and her mom Trish is like our sister. Everyone always greets us with a hello and a smile. Not like the Cheers hello,... More

My family, friends and I have been going to fats for years now. They have the best hot wings in town. The cheapest too! They are the only place that gives you free dressing and celery/carrots too. And not just two or three sticks like Shamroks does.... you get a BUNCH! Love this place!

Saw an ad for this place advertizing their wings. Tucked in a strip mall, it is not somewhere you would notice. However, the honey-hot wings were excellent plus we had a very good cheese steak sandwitch. The beer is good and of course there are tv's and karaoke. Service was a little slow, but we werent in a hurry. Not... More
