Fat Freddy's is a '50s-style diner with a difference. You can get that juicy hamburger with fries and a thick old-fashioned milkshake. But the diner also has choices of Southern-fried chicken, veal parmigiana, blackened catfish and a variety of Mexican favorites.
Complete dinners, which include a garden-fresh salad (with two kinds of grated cheese and tomatoes) or soup, choice of potato and vegetable, average $5.40. Fat Freddy's is known for its catfish, which you can get either fried or blackened for $6.95.
You can't go wrong with the beef and Cheddar sandwich for $5.35: tender strips of roast beef grilled with cheese and tomatoes on Parmesan cheese-coated sourdough bread. It's served with french fries.
There's also a good selection of desserts, including a huge banana split ($4.25) that could easily make a meal by itself.
