Interior of Fat's Chicken and Waffles

    Fat's is a southern style, New Orleans-influenced restaurant focusing on authentic & natural ingredients in the heart of the Central District. Serving fried chicken & waffles, shrimp & grits, fried okra, red beans & rice, and as a nod to the building’s history, there’s also fried catfish. The chill and vibed-out atmosphere features a handpainted mural and handmade furniture made by local artists. The comfort food, art, sports & movie filled tv screen, and soulful sounds brings you right back to your family’s get-togethers growing up.
