Great food , prices weren't too bad at all. They definitely dont shy away from the alchohol in your margarita.

I can see making the 30 minute trek to Fat Rosie's frequently. The food is that good!

Went to celebrate my birthday and specifically for the pinata cake. Had a great time. Only issue was server really not knowing the menu well. I had asked if a specific item was spicy as I cannot do spicy foods. Said he could just not put sauce on it. One bite and I was in trouble. Another server came and brought sour cream. Mention that the guacquillo are in the breading on the chicken as well. Had I known that I would have ordered differently

The food is always great but the service is always horrible and they tried to cram us into this small table and the servers and other guests dining kept hitting our chairs.

A bit loud and sometimes crowded - but - the camarone tacos are amazing. So many other tacos to try, as well. The drink "the Fat Rosie" is delicious. Fat Rosies is my go to restaurant.

We had an 8pm reservation. Some of our party was there 15 mins early but they wouldn't seat them until all arrived. We did then have an almost 40 min wait after our reservation time. But we were given some apps to share for free and everyone was very nice. Fat Rosie's is still my fave restaurant

We go to Fat Rosie's often and usually love it. This time was a bit different sadly. Our server wasn't very attentive. I know it was a Saturday evening but it took quite sometime to be greeted by her and after she took our drink order she vanished for awhile- came back to take our order and asked us if we wanted anything to drink. I told her that we already gave her our drink order and she kinda mumbled something about thinking we had ordered margaritas so she was waiting for them. She kind of contradicted herself. The food was great but the service was really disappointing. We sat on the patio and there were a couple of people smoking which was also a bummer.

We were sat in the outdoor section in the back of main restaurant structure. Normally I like outdoors but the flies and gnats were all over. Couldn’t enjoy dining experience because of swatting flies and gnats off food and drinks. My parents were there for the first time and will prob not want to return. Mgmt should spray or do more to try to contain the bug invasion. There were also a lot of crumbs on seats cushions. The cushions looked as if they needed to be replaced. Our server was wonderful and of course drinks were good but ambiance of flies were very bad.

Tables are so close to each other there wasn't always room for wait staff to serve without leaning over from behind. Waitress took our drink order 5-10 minutes after being seated. Served us our drinks and that was the last time we saw her at our table until she dropped off the bill. She never asked if we wanted another round of drinks or if our meals were okay, which they weren't. A side order never made it to the table, nor did anyone ask if we wanted more tortilla chips.

Came in the afternoon for apps and drinks. I have been to FR a few times now and unfortunately keeps going downhill. The tables outside were not arranged properly. Our first seat was on an angle and in front of an opening door where servers could have easily hit me. I asked if we could be moved over. The entrance was a disaster. There was an open waiter station right in the front with dish buckets. Random chairs placed all over the front. It just looked so sloppy and strange! I really like the drinks, but for the price, I was expecting better service and ambiance.

The food is always good. They have no control of the flies, but they were a nuisance due to the weather and opening of the door!

It's a very loud restaurant. Food comes very quick. Servers seem to be going ao fast that they barely stop when they ask a question so be ready if you want another beverage or another taco.

Just not my type of place. Extremely loud and Echo-y. Flies all over the place, really grossed me out. I ate my food quickly to avoid flies landing on it. Also I had a reservation but they wouldn't seat me till the whole party was there- even tho my Aunt has a cast on her broken leg. They had us stand outside in the sun when there was plenty of open tables. I won't be back.

We were a group of 4 and we asked for another salsa (as the bowls are too small for groups larger than 2) .... had to wait about 12-15 Minutes to receive it on top of re asking for it 3 times! Seems server was too busy....he also had a large table of over 12 along with other tables so seemed we then got neglected. It was so loud we couldn’t even hold a conversation - we sat in the back room too.

First time at Fat Rosie's and I wouldn't go back. The food was very unappealing. No taste and way too expensive for taco's that had no flavor. We left hungry. Don't understand the appeal. You can't even hear what your saying to others in your party.

Love the food, the vibe, and downtown Frankfort is so cute. However, the restaurant is very small and crowded. Way too loud for my taste...I couldn't hear the waiter or anyone in my party most of the time. Excellent food and drinks!
The entry way to the restaurant is a nightmare...way too congested. Still, I would go back.

Food was great. Glad we made a reservation. There was a crowd of people waiting. We waited about 2 minutes for our table. A little loud for my tastes but everyone was having fun especially the bachelorette party!

I come here for the atmosphere. The food isn’t great (except the rice! The rice is really good), the margaritas are usually really good, but not consistent... and the service isn’t great (probably because they are usually slammed with people), but everyone is super friendly, having fun and we love when they have the mariachi band and tequila shots! Great party atmosphere ❤️ We’ll be back for sure.
