Dowd's Catfish in Lebanon Mo
Based on a comment by MissouriBill in a different thread, I decided to stop here for lunch today. Absolutely beautiful tender flaky catfish. Not overcooked or chewy, not oily or greasy even though it was fried. I got the spicy catfish. The sides were great too. They have other stuff on the menu including quite a few BBQ selections. Take the Business 44 exit to Lebanon from I44 and you should find it easily as it is signposted and right on the route.
Revisited Dowd's a couple of days ago on our way home after a long trip with the wife and the dog. Catfish and sides just as good as I remember BBQ also good. They let us eat outside with our dog. I read some negative comments on service on other websites - but no complaints from me - service was great.
