One of our favorite meals at this friendly home of true Southern cooking has always been the catfish plate with fries and a side of the perfectly spiced jalapeño creamed spinach. Lately, we've discovered the delights of the catfish po-boy, piping hot fried catfish fillets on a baguette dressed with mayonnaise, lettuce, and tangy pickles. Just delicious.
