Much Better Than the Catfish in the News These Days
When I went to the HOT fair in October, I ran into a little booth selling alligator and blasting some great soul music. While I didn't buy their food that evening (I'd already eaten a giant corn dog since it was the fair and all), I did dance with the people at the booth and take home a flyer.
I kid you not- that flyer has been hanging on my wall for the past 4 months.
And now Louisiana Catfish and Chicken is finally open.
My friend found out about it first and went on her lunch break. She brought me some Catfish fillets and hushpuppies. That made me even more excited for my first trip.
When I went, I tried the Catfish tail basket. I didn't realize the tail would come with fins, so next time I think I'd stick to the fillets. It was tasty, but also difficult to eat.
Things that I would definitely eat every day of my life: their french fries and hush puppies. Holy smokes- I have never had such delicious hush puppies. Stop reading this review and go get yourself some hush puppies right now.
Unless it's closed. In which case, get some tomorrow when it opens. Seriously- THEY ARE THAT GOOD.
Also- my friend ordered alligator nuggets, and they were delicious. I'd order those on my next trip for sure.
Things to note: right now, the place kind of has a food truck mentality. There aren't a lot of seating options, and you have to get your drinks in the gas station next door. (Or bring your own.) Also- they're cooking what you order when you order it, so be prepared to wait a little while. But trust me- it's worth it.
I will return to Louisiana Catfish and Chicken.
But I'll stick to things without fins.
