Yesterday we went to a new place thar opened a couple of weeks ago in Carrollton called the Catfish House it is located at Old Denton and Frankford in a strip center. It was the real deal. I am always looking for fried catfish that taste like what I grew-up on in the South and this was fantastic. Nice salty cornmeal crunchy crust great fried oyster's they have po-boys , gumbo(which was not bad) shrimp etc. It was cheap clean and really good if your looking for a Southern Catfish fix.

      I'm going to try this today. Any idea on when they close, or a phone number? I can't find anything on Google since it's such a new place.

          A successful visit to The Catfish House this evening...excellent crisp, extremely hot, non-greasy fried catfish, oysters (plump and bursting), and really interesting extruded-looking hushpuppies. The only disappointment (perhaps too strong a word) was the beans & rice--it looked like soup. I asked "where's the rice"? expecting a scoop of rice in the middle, and they took it back to insert more rice. When it came back it still looked like soup, but I gave up and tried it--the taste was excellent, very nice, but it just wasn't what I expected.

          Overall, this is a fantastic local find.
