Really enjoyed the Red Beans & Rice lunch special. If you like Red Beans, FT's serves the real deal with tasty sausage, a thin slice or two of red onion, a jalapeno and wonderful real New Orleans bread. I spend the $1 to add cheddar cheese, which may be sacrilege to some, but works for me. The quantity always leaves... More

Waited 30 minutes, after i recieved the menu then the server tells me the item I ordered is not available. In addition the server appeared to be confused about who ordered what.

Fat Tuesday's is a casual, friendly place with good service and good food. I enjoyed the gumbo and shrimp poboy I had there and will definitely return.

After having driven past Fat Tuesday's for many years, we planned a Lunch visit to this restaurant after my Wife had seen their Menu online. It was a great decision. This is definitely a place where friends meet for Lunch, the place was packed and everyone seemed to know each other! My Wife took advantage of one of the Lunch... More

My husband and I had a place in Jackson that we always went to for our Red Beans and Rice "fix" for years, but unfortunately it closed a while back. "RIP Que Sera Sera" We went online to find somewhere new to get our "fix" on and came across Fat Tuesday's. We decided to give it a try and we... More

We have eaten Cajun and Creole food all over the Gulf Coast. To find this quality in Jackson is very special. This restaurant is one of the best.Their seafood gumbo is perfect...authentic comparable to the best of Lafayette. Their Middendorf's style catfish is crispy, full of flavor and not greasy. Service is super friendly. Great neighborhood spot!

Great neighborhood eatery. Outstanding gumbo with a rich dark roux and lots of seafood. Thin catfish as good as Middendorfs. Give it a try.

I've been here a few years ago and my mom visits every year when she is in town. It is her favorite, they always remember her even though she hasn't been for a year. The waitresses and owner make her feel very special. I always order the oyster po boy and a cup of gumbo. It didn't disappoint, it was... More

Let's face it. There aren't many places to get a good poboy in the metro Jackson area. So what sets this place apart? It's the fresh French bread, the fried shrimp that fall off the bread. Come for the food. Leave your Amex home, as it's not accepted. If there's a better poboy, I don't know where it is.

If you're in the Jackson, MS area, I'm advising against patronizing a restaurant located in Ridgeland, MS named Fat Tuesday's. I ordered a cup of gumbo and crawfish étouffée, and both of these dishes were subpar. I mustered up enough courage to finish the bland gumbo but after only one spoonful of the étouffée, I knew it was too far... More
