I just tried the Fat Burger that opened in Atlanta. It was a Saturday night, and they were hoping. I thought the staff was good, at being helpful, and the service was friendly. Burger and fries got there in no time. After a few bites, an employee came over to ask me if everything was to my liking. I watched several other staffers, do the same at other tables. Good PR.
The burger itself was good. Hot and tasty. The fries were cooked perfectly. However, I've become spoiled with Checker's seasoned fries. I found myself getting up for the Tabasco sauce. The lemonade looked fresh ala Chick Filet, but I had soda.
Atlanta's best burgers, are still from local non-chain mom&pop's. However, Fat Burger has a good product, and so-far good service. Still, this burger didn't topple my current chain favorite. The last two I have had from Johnny Rocket's were superb. I will return to Fat Burger, with my sidekick, and get a second opinion.
One thing that I didn't like: A box for tips. When one was offered, the cashier hollered out, "Fat tip!" And all the employes said "thanks." Sometimes, I think the tip think is getting out of hand.
