We ordered Natchoes and they forgot about us. There was really no one else there so really no excuse. The food was good but we felt as if we were disturbing their chatting.

The only reason this place has a three is because of the strong, tasty margarita. We split a bland order of tamales. They weren't anything to write home about. The setting is nice, patio is nice. Just come for a margarita.

We did take out tamales for a picnic, delicious and I'm not even a tamale person. Wish we would have had more time to go back and eat in. Cute outside dining available.

If you enjoy mexican food this place is great. You can seat yourself, order at the front counter, and look around at the ahop nearby. They also have cookies for dessert.

We headed there for lunch, very popular. They margaritas were a big hit. They offer other items besides tamales.

We discovered this by accident on a walk around town. Really good food and ultra fast service. As Southern Living put it "like the Varsity in Atlanta every southerner should try Fat Mama's".

Food is great! Enjoyed our visit and will be back soon! This place has a really great atmosphere! Has a Jimmy Buffet feel to it.

Love the building. Margaritas were the best here. Food was ok. They seem to be popular for their Margaritas.
