New Rock-N-Bowl pasta dishes start at $9.99, for a limited time…

The Fatz Rock-N-Bowls menu has been carefully curated by award-winning Chef, Brian Dukes, and features many innovative, chef-inspired dishes using fresh, local and regional ingredients that are served up to satisfy.

“Fatz guests love our World Famous Calabash Chicken, and we are excited to bring them new ways to enjoy it,” said Vice President of Culinary, Brian Dukes.  “Our lasagna is made fresh in-house with a recipe that only Fatz could make. We start with a base of ricotta cheese, fresh basil, and parmesan. Then we add eggs to make it rise when baked with a light, fluffy consistency. Then we build layers of lasagna noodles, cheese, marinara and our housemade Calabash chicken tenders into sky-high masterpiece. Then, it’s garnished with two Calabash chicken tenders and fresh parsley. It’s a wow.”

The new Rock-N-Bowls menu not only features delicious pasta dishes, but a new dessert, drink and starters, as well. The full menu includes:

Calabash Chicken Parmesan – World Famous Calabash Chicken served over penne pasta tossed in house made marinara and topped with gooey, melted Italian cheese.
