  • The Fatted Calf

    In Clayton.

    How good is it? Where do you park?

    Thanks!

      Good. Expensive, though. Lettuce, tomato, onion, etc. are extra.

      I recommend not getting the cheddar cheese....it is processed crap that they throw in with an ice cream scoop.

      Other than that....good burger, good onion rings and fries.

      You can look for parking on Bemiston (meter parking). You probably won't find anything, so I would park in the public lot on Central and Cardondelet....across from the Courthouse.

        Thanks.

        Wife has heard folks at work talking about it and wants to go. I knew it was going to be difficult to find a place to park.

          I think there's another public lot north of the calf next to that one church?

            There is one on Central and Maryland, on the northwest side of the intersection.

              When I worked in Clayton (early 80's) the Fatted Calf was one of the weekly lunch spots. Good burger but I agree with Birdo, the Cheddar cheese?, while eaten in my 20's would now be avoided as I approach 50.

              I'm amazed that it is still operating. Kuenys bar, the Branding Iron, Tuetenbergs, Jack and Charlies deli, were other stops. All long gone.

                do NOT get the scoop of cheese...other than that you'll be ok...as for parking, there are usually plenty of spots near fire hydrants...
                . . . and to tell you this: I work with gays, have friends who are gay, go to church with gays. Most of them are aware that I believe that homosexual behavior is sin. Some of them actually agree. Most don't. It's OK . . . because they also know or at least have been made aware of my multitude of sins: adulterous heart, lustful and covetous behavior, wicked pride, angry spirit . . . do I need to go on?

                  I work in the building next door. It's about a 15 second walk from our back door.

                  At any rate, it's really not that great. I mean, it's a decent burger, but definitely not worth a special trip or anything. I would put the burgers on the same level as any above average burger you would get from a bar and grille. The fries and onion rings are completely average. Nothing special about them at all. It does have a cool atmosphere. It kind of looks like a medieval tavern or something. It's all wooden and dark.

                  I'll second the advice about the scoop of cheese. It's not good. Go for a regular slice of cheese and grilled onions and bacon.

                  People say it's expensive, and it is for a burger and fries, but when they say it's expensive, they mean that a burger, fries and soda will run you about 12 bucks. It's not like it's gonna break the bank.

                  As for parking, there is a public lot across the street. You can probably find a spot. Or you could park in my reserved spot which is a 30 second walk from there, but I hate you guys, so no can use it.
