Great Food and Great EveningWe thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Frank Fat's. For most in our group it had been years since eating there. For others, it was the first time experiencing the restaurant. We had a wonderful meal, and our server, Rosie, was excellent! We will go back.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMDisappointmentIt was disappointing that my note about our birthday celebration which I wrote on my Open Table reservation was not known by our waiter!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great time at FrankWe had a great time at Frank Fat's celebrating my husband's birthday. The waiter was very friendly and good. Our table was perfect and we enjoyed the food we ordered. The bar was out of the champagne we ordered so the bartender gave us a more expensive bottle at the same price. Very Classy and appreciated. Also, we had indicated that we needed to be done at a certain time in order to attend the play and we were done exactly at that time. I highly recommend Frank Fat's to others and we will definitely dine there again.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWe really enjoyed the specialWe really enjoyed the special dinner celebrating the James Beard award?5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMStarted going to Frank Fat'sStarted going to Frank Fat's when I was a child in the fifties.

The food is always good & the service is friendly.
We never needed to ask for a waiter for extra water or refill for drinks.
Someone always handled those matters before so it was so convenient.
Now they have great set menus for really crazy low price with well known dishes that includes the famous banana creme pie!
It's a must to try...5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFun Place To GoLike other recent reviewers it was the James Beard award that got me curios , then it was all the positive reviews .
This is a great downtown dining expierance , from the service to the desert . Eating dinner here was like eating Chinese food for the first time . The flavors that was produced here will make you rethink the Chinese cuisine nothing is ordinary .
And if you decide to get the banana cream pie for desert , it will be a continuation delicious and extraordinary flavors .
You will be doing yourself a favor coming here !5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMTruely a gemHaving just won the James Beard award, the restaurant lived up to its reputation for traditional Chinese cuisine. Had dinner with my new husband, a Japanese American who truly knows fine Chinese food and even he raved about the food. My son also wrote on Facebook: "Had a great time with my mom and her husband at Frank Fats restaurant! It is one of a handful of Chinese restaurants that doesn't overdo their food with heavy sauces and spices."5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous Birthday DinnerFat's is always good but the special menu offered in recognition of winning the James Beard award is over the top. The steak, scallops, honey walnut prawns, and lots more topped off with that delicious banana cream pie. Heaven.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this place great food&serviceWe eat here many years ago and it was great, and even better now, staff is wonderful, I highly recommend this restaurant.
Well return many times!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMYou would never know it fromYou would never know it from the outside, as located on the edge of edgy part of downtown, but this is a gem with outstanding food and service!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWe took some friends thereWe took some friends there who are moving from Sacramento in a week. They'd told us they'd never had great Chinses since living here. So my husband said "we've got to take you to Fats". It was fantastic as always. We've been about half a dozen times, and they never disappoint. Our friends were delighted. It was a great sendoff dinner, and we let them take all the leftovers (except for 1 piece of banana cream pie). The New York steak with grilled onions is the best steak I've ever had in a restaurant (hubby grills the best in the world). Mongolian Beef, honey-walnut prawns, fried rice, green beans; it was delicious! Thanks again - B&L4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMServers who ExcelFood was very good - service EXCELLENT

Everything we ordered was outstanding.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMBeen going here for a whileBeen going here for a while and it is a very nice restaurant. I would say I only prefer booths just because last time we tried sitting in the table section, it was way too noisy, I couldn't even hear my date! So now every time I go I prefer to get a booth. Overall, the food is fantastic, the servers are pleasant, and the place is just great!3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMThe original Frank Fat's hasThe original Frank Fat's has the best chinese cuisine in the Sacramento Valley. I have tried many Chinese restaurants in the area but nothing compares. Kung Pao is great- they will cater to your level of spice. In fact the staff will go out of their way to individualize any meal. Great chow mein and chow fun. Food always tastes fresh here. And don't forget the banana cream pie- no one can beat Fat's3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous food at Frank Fat'sOur experience at Frank Fat's is always wonderful.

Food was delicious and arrived hot except for one appetizer which was lukewarm (although still tasty). Service was prompt yet unobtrusive. Setting as always, is beautiful.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
