Went here ( Silver Lake Village ) Saturday morning 11/16/2013, started getting sick 6 hours later and have had diarrhea for 28 hours now. The bacon was a bit under cooked but I didn't think much about it at the time which I mentioned to my companion... now I know.. They under cook food. Great looking place, fast service but it comes at a price.
Egg-cellent! Nice-relaxed atmosphere and great service (coffee cup remained full). The Eggs Ben. w/spc avcad. was lovely. Will go back when have the next opportunity.
I ate at this place trying to give this local business some help. The menu was so so. The waitress was very huffy and just plain terrible. I sat at the bar and that seemed to irrate her? I will not reccommend it. Food was so-so, not that great to take this kind of service and attitude. I didnot tip her.
Best Breakfast with great service! Love Love Love this place!
Staff is the best:)!
Generous portions, great vibe – I had not been to Fat Nats since their expansion, but I was not disappointed. Fast service and big portions. The size of the menu matches the size of the wait staff. Not obese, just, as KD Lang says, "big-boned gals." We were given recommendations that matched our experience. The American fries were warm and crispy. The sausage was spicy and the coffee was never allowed to get below half-full. They had a packed house at 9 on a Sunday am and were able to handle it without a problem.
"Support a local small business and big waitresses, "Eat at Nats."
A little disappointing – I had high hopes for this place judging by the number of people lined up outside the door on the weekends. I finally had a chance to stop by on a Monday morning when it wasn't too crowded.
I ordered the huevos rancheros carnitas and it was pretty tasty with a nice spiciness to the pork. My wife ate some standard breakfast items, eggs and bacon with home fries. She said it wasn't any better than Perkins.
Even though it wasn't busy, the service wasn't too impressive. The prices were higher than I normally pay for breakfast. While we stood at the cash register waiting to pay our bill, the cashier was laughing and joking with some of the staff. When he finally came to ring us up, instead of asking us how everything was, he said "The food was great, right?" It seemed more like he was telling us, rather than asking us.
Even though I live only 5 minutes from the restaurant, I think I'll save some money, and eat breakfast somewhere else next time.
Amongst the Pantheon of Twin Cities' Diners – Family fun, family friendly, family atmosphere. Family in the best sense of the word! This place gets what it means to put what you love into your work. Spend $6 and see if you agree. Yeah, I am a fan. :-)
It's all about the potatoes – Nat's is a basic eggs and cakes outfit. No highly refined waitstaff here, just freindly.
I can only comment on the meal I was served. It was the early AM special. Two eggs, 3 links, toast and home fries for $6. A pretty good deal by any measure. The eggs, meat and toast were standard fare, done right, but nothing special. But let's talk potatoes.
Now don't get me wrong, these weren't Mul's potatoes (Boston), something of legend. But right now I would love to consume better home fries in the Cities. I haven't found them (or at least these are top 3). Small reds, check. Evenly cooked, check. Lightly fried so there is a hint of crispiness, but not an overly drying of the interior. Fried with onions, check. And some fresh chives added for additonal flavor. They came out piping hot (a critcal requirement with good home fries) and were heaven. The Feb. morning was bitterly cold out, but the potatoes were hot, an exquisite contrast.
used to be good – This was a good place at one time. It's gone downhill since the move. High prices, long waits, and below average everything else. I was a fan. Nat doesn't care anymore.
No pretense, just fabulous food and service! – Nat's is my #1 choice for casual, family and power breakfasts. When I want a guest to have an outstanding experience to start their day, whether they are fellow Minneapolitans or they've crossed oceans to visit, I take them to Nat's for a slam-dunk, positively spectacular breakfast.
Everything they serve is tasty, and I'm particularly addicted to the pancakes. Service is genuine and not contrived. Overall, a great community resource!
