We were trying to decide on dinner last night and somebody said Catfish!
Then in became where…
“Well, there’s this little place just across the Red… in Oklahoma…
45 miles and an hour later, we pull in to this little place that doesn’t even have a sign outside.
There were maybe eight cars outside when we pulled up, so we got seated immediately! 🙂
Having eaten at a few fish camps over the years, I looked at the menu and saw full and half orders, which is as they say, a clue! I got the 1/2 order of shrimp and catfish, Lawdog got a half order of catfish, and AEpilot Jim got the FULL order platter…
And fried pickles, and they brought TWO baskets of hush puppies. The coleslaw was excellent, with a hint of garlic, and we all agreed the fish was going to be good!
The meal came, and it was delicious as we’d heard. Fish camp style, slim fillets cooked perfectly, and HOT when they came out with the fries. The tartar sauce was definitely homemade, and plenty of it.
Lawdog and I barely finished our 1/2 orders, and Jim actually had to get a takeout! As we were leaving there were at least six couples waiting inside, and probably five or six more outside or sitting in their trucks, and I counted forty vehicles filling the small parking lot.
On the way back we were laughing about it being ‘Texas close’, probably ‘only’ drawing from about a 60 mile radius. We collectively decided we would be back, and we’ll be bringing friends, but we’re gonna get there EARLY! 🙂
This morning I’m sleeping off the food coma from last night… LOL
