Fat Cat Burgers + Bakeshop is the fun, casual, family-friendly spot in Dilworth for food, beer and fresh-baked favorites. Charlotte restaurateur Fran Scibelli has reimagined the concept and menu of the former Fran’s Filling Station. Some of your old favorites are still here, but so is a walk-up donut window and a handcrafted array of burgers, fried chicken, salads and more. Welcome to Fat Cat, where you can dine in, have it delivered, or get it to go!
Wednesdays & Thursdays - Half priced wine bottles & Flatbreads a la Fran's (Fig, brie & goat cheese and more!!)
Yes, it’s true: Two maple bacon donuts sandwiching your choice of beef burger or crispy chicken with spicy jack cheese and onion strings.
We’re always changing up our delicious donut selection. You’ve never tasted combinations like this! Check back daily to see what’s straight out of the oven.
Feeling a little greener? Our salad selections include the satisfying Traditional Chop Chop, loaded with fresh ingredients.
Fat Cat Burgers & Bakeshop is a cozy, welcoming dining and bakery concept conceived by Fran Scibelli, the Charlotte restaurateur behind Metropolitan Bakery and Café and, most recently, Fran’s Filling Station in Dilworth.
Fran is channeling her energy and good vibes into this fun, friends and family-friendly neighborhood eatery and bakery. And you don’t have to look far to find it – it’s in the same spot previously occupied by Fran’s Filling Station.
While you will still find many of the old favorites here - California burgers, Chop Chop salads & Bacon-wrapped tater tots, you will also find new items like Warm Brussels Spout Dip, the vegan Green & Grain Salad and the decadent Fat Franny, a burger or fried chicken breast sndwiched between a house made maple bacon donut!!
Fat Cat also serves 9 local beers are on tap, as well as a small but interesting wine selection, local coffee and nitro cold brew and a full bar with seasonal cocktail list. craft The donuts change daily at our walk-up donut window. And a kids’ menu includes plenty of old (and new) favorites.
So no matter your tastes, Fat Cat has a little something for everyone. We’re easy to find – just follow the aroma of fresh-baked bread and cookies!!
