There is a "Fat" difference between going through the drive-thru at this Fatburger and actually going inside. The drive-thru wait can be tedious, but that's no fault of Fatburger; they cook your order fresh, so nothing has that icky, dried- out taste of fast food that's been sitting under heating lamps before they give it to you. However,I recommend taking the time to go inside and order. There's a whole different vibe inside, and whatever it is, it brings out the ravenous teenager in most everyone, young or old. The wonderful scent of sizzling burgers and good fries, the free juke box music playing Motown or other great oldies, and the happy people enjoying the food (and trust me, these are mostly people who LOVE to eat, not obsessive calorie-counters who feel guilty gettin' their grease on once in awhile !), and it all adds up to what going to a burger stand should be: FUN! Don't forget to try their fresh-squeezed lemonade( my fave) or creamy shakes; for those who avoid burgers, they have a delicious turkeyburger as well; and one last tip: they have really good onion rings too, not those dreadful ol' frozen things that are all breading and no onion. So why fight it? Get yer Fat on!! (:
Despite the tantalizing ads, the main event here, the chicken itself, doesn't quite translate to a satisfying meal. Perhaps it's the way they cut the pieces up, but the product one ultimately gets is often more bones than meat, and frequently dry as leather despite the marinade they boast of. I have had wings here that are basically skimpy burnt offerings with no chicken to speak of. (Pollo Loco needs to re-define "piece" of chicken!) Some of their other items are actually better than the chicken: the tostada and burritos, while not the best, are at least more filling than the 2 piece combo meals. The side orders are blah, except for the tasty black beans and tortilla soup. (Their version of chicken tamales is just god-awful.) This chain is selling the "healthier" angle of flame-cooked chicken, which is indeed a step up from the endless grease vat of places like KFC, but you still need to deliver the goods. I would rather bake chicken at home than bother with this leathery version of chicken. Another mild suggestion: enough of the annoying Pollo Loco ad substituting the words "El Pollo Loco" for the lovely song, "Guantanamera." Try something new.
I recently moved to the area and this place is just a few blocks away. Happy to say, it's become one of my neighborhood joints. I typically stick with the small plates since they're great to share with my significant other. Our favorites so far have been the fried oysters, the chicken and waffle croquettes, the spinach pierogi, the pumpkin ravioli and of course, the kaya toast. I'm all about the kaya toast and we've been known to get two orders on occasion. Also, and to pretend like we're being healthy, we'll order something green, such as the (crispy) brussels sprouts or the house salad. They have a terrific drink menu with cocktails that are too difficult or time consuming for me to make at home, (which is what I look for in a drink list). I can make my own, great old fashioned. I like trying a new drink every time I go. They also have a nice wine list when I'm in the mood for a glass.The service has always been great and the staff has always been friendly. I would recommend making a reservation before going since seating fills up pretty fast. Otherwise, get there once they open for dinner, like we usually do, and seating shouldn't be an issue.
It was disappointing and overpriced. Many places categorized this as a French restaurant but it is not a French restaurant. I had a birthday dinner for my girl friend on Sunday night with high expectation. The restaurant has a nice ambiance but the service was not that great. It wasn't bad but with the high price I pay, I would expect much higher level of service. The server misinformed us about the food item and we didn't get what we wanted. However, the menu is so limited and there was no other choice once we discovered the item was not what the server described. I was told when I made the reservation is that the restaurant has the same owner and same chef as the Next Door. However, I found out after eating there is that this place has an overpriced menu but not the same type of "French" food I could find next door. The food was average. Bottom line, I wouldn't come back or recommend this restaurant because it is overpriced, mis-categorized, and average service.

Service is good, and fast. Food is juicy and portions are fine "only if you order to eat at the restaurant". I can not say the same with "take out" orders. Two times I ordered to go a whole chicken (8 pieces) I asked to be well done but juicy. When I get home and open the tray I found out the "one halve" of a chicken breast was cut in two pieces, very small, and the chicken meat was not juicy.. instead was kind of hard to bite on, no tasty to eat out of all. My recommendation is to check your order before your leave the restaurant, we are not asking anything for free, we are paying for what they advertise!
