Yazoo catfish creole – BB King’s Blues Club

Yazoo catfish creole - BB King's Blues Club
Blackened imported catfish served over shrimp and crawfish rice and creole sauce, biscuit. $16.79
BB King’s Blues Club, Memphis TN

This dish was really flavorful and I liked that the creole sauce had a bit of a kick to it. The catfish, unfortunately, was on the dry side so that was disappointing. We were also seated at a horrible table even though the club wasn’t very full when we arrive and throughout our stay. #fail

Pork rib and catfish combo – Sandra Dee’s Barbeque & Seafood

Pork rib and catfish combo - Sandra Dee's Barbeque and Seafood
String beans, mac & cheese, hush puppy, cornbread muffin. 2 item combo $16
Sandra Dee’s Barbeque & Seafood, Sacramento CA

I liked most of the items on this plate. The bbq pork ribs were delicious, tender, and the bbq sauce had a nice heat to it. The mac and cheese was oozy-gooey and just the way I like it! The catfish strips were tiny and not properly cleaned (there was a lot of that gross silver crap that gives it a metallic flavor), and the muffin was a dense, dry hockey puck. The beans were fine, and the hush puppy was slightly greasy. I don’t know if I’d go running back when in the Sacramento area because there are other bbq places to try first.

Fried catfish po boy – Queen’s Louisiana Po-Boy Cafe

Fried catfish po boy - Queen's Louisiana Po-Boy Cafe
Basic po boy with lettuce, tomato and mayo on a toasted roll. $8.49
Queen’s Louisiana Po-Boy Cafe, San Francisco CA

I don’t think I can review this sandwich fairly because I got it to-go and it wilted a little before I was able to eat it. I will say that the catfish was flavorful, but a little greasy.

Spicy grilled catfish – Cracker Barrel

Spicy grilled catfish - Cracker Barrel
Two farm-raised catfish fillets, macaroni n’ cheese and country green beans. $9.69
Cracker Barrel Restaurant, North Charleston SC

Oh well for my attempt to order something healthy. These catfish fillets were pan fried in LOTS of butter. They tasted good, but I really wasn’t in the mood for another heavy meal. I can’t pass up mac & cheese though! This version was pretty good!
