The Springdale Rd. location of this family-owned restaurant proved to be so successful, they expanded to include a new outlet a couple of blocks east of I-35 in 2001. We stopped in one day for lunch and found the place packed with hungry neighborhood business folks, all chowing down on catfish dinners with the traditional trimmings of fries, hush puppies, and cole slaw.
