There aren't many dishes that speak to the Arkansas palette more than catfish. (We'll talk about spaghetti and fried chicken some other time.)

The setup: I had a craving for fried and flaky fish, so I headed up to Eat My Catfish, which opened its Fayetteville location in July.

  • I was hungry, so I ordered a three-piece that comes with two hush puppies for $12.50.
  • For my sides, I chose fried okra and more hush puppies.

The verdict: The fish was delish, and the hush puppies were doggone good.

  • The okra should've spent more time in the cooker, IMO.

Pro tip: Try the cocktail sauce for dipping rather than the house tartar.

What to try next time: Fried pies — apple, peach, strawberry, chocolate or coconut.

Details: Eat My Catfish is located at 32 W. Joyce Blvd. in Fayetteville near Party City.

  • It's open 11am to 8pm on Monday through Thursday, 11am to 9pm on Friday through Saturday and 11am to 2pm on Sunday.
