Eat My Catfish, the Benton-based fried fish joint that has established a strong reputation – including a win in the “Best Seafood Around the State” category of this year’s Arkansas Times Readers’ Choice Awards — based on the simple math of heaping plates of fresh-never-frozen fare plus solid, no nonsense sides, recently announced recently that they’ll be bringing an outlet to Little Rock.
The newest opportunity to Eat My Catfish will be located at 10301 N. Rodney Parham, in the Breckinridge Village Shopping Center – specifically, the former location of lingerie retailer Barbara Graves Intimate Fashions (there’s a comment to be made there, but I’ll be damned if I’m gonna make it). The Little Rock store joins Eat My Catfish locations in Benton and Conway, plus two mobile trailers.
Owner Travis Hester started the Eat My Catfish as a food truck in 2008, and opened the first brick and mortar location in Benton in 2012. The target opening date for the Little Rock location will be June. In addition to their signature catfish, the Little Rock store will reportedly offer live crawfish and fresh Gulf shrimp available for purchase in bulk, for those who prefer to do their own cooking.
