Fat Pat’s is a Bar and Grill located off of Verot School Road. I have been hearing people rant and rave about how incredible the food was at Fat Pat’s. It took me a long time to finally go, because every time we decided to go eat, I would never remember Fat Pat’s. Simply because it is not on the end of town that I live on.
My husband and I do lunch dates often, so this particular Friday we decided to go to Fat Pat’s. But my husband was adamant that I needed to be there before 11:30 because the place fills up fast. This made we want to try this place more. I wanted to know what the fuss was all about.
Upon entrance into the restaurant, it was the view of a simple restaurant with a laid back feel. The restaurant was decorated with sport themed items. The owners are supporters of our Louisiana teams. Which I love. It gave me a family like environment.
There was a bar area with Televisions, a few booths and high chair style tables and chairs. Personally I am not a fan of High Chair style Tables and Chairs. But I wasn’t there for long term so it was ok.
Fat Pat’s also has an outdoor area with tables and chairs. Which is perfect for Louisiana area. The area is covered as well.
The lady who waited on us was very nice. We ordered very quickly because we knew exactly what we felt like eating. My husband decided on the Fried Catfish Sandwich which was served on a delicious toasted bun with lettuce, tomato and a special sauce with crinkled fries.
He gave me a bite of his sandwich. The sandwich was pretty good. Fish was fried perfectly and the sandwich was dressed nicely.
I decided on the Mile High burger. The burger is a seasoned patty topped with pepper jack cheese, grilled yellow, red and green peppers, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, mayo, mustard and ketchup. The burger was very good. Not overcooked, seasoned well. It was definitely worth the visit there.
The topping were perfect for the sandwich. The bun was also toasted. I am not sure if they make their buns in house or not, but the buns were delicious on the burgers. Very yummy.
We didn’t try anything else, because he had to go back to work and I wasn’t going home. I didn’t want to buy too much and waste it. But we are definitely going to go back and try a few things on the menu.
The menu at Fat Pat’s offers a large variety of items. Everything from your traditional appetizers like wings, fried pickles, nachos, etc. Entrees range from Hamburgers, Hot Dogs, Sandwiches, Wraps, etc. There is something for everyone in the family.
Fat Pat’s also serves desserts, but the only desserts I saw was Cheesecake. They definitely could expand their desserts menu a bit. In addition, for the little ones there is a kids menu that reasonably priced.
Overall the service was good for Fat Pat’s. The environment was nice as well. It would be cool to go back and watch a game at Fat Pat’s. I definitely recommend Fat Pat’s. Everything was delicious. See you soon!
Fat Pat’s has two locations. We dined in at the one on Verot. Conveniently located at 626 Verot School Road in Lafayette, LA.
