This sunny, clean-as-a-whistle catfish ’n’ barbecue hut houses some tasty soul food. The cornmeal-crusted filet of catfish and butterflied shrimp are heart-stoppers but worth the risk, and the messy “mini” rib tips are twice the size of any we’ve seen elsewhere. Soulful sides are mandatory: gooey mac and cheese, fried okra, slow-simmered greens and the creamy banana pudding finale. Rounding out the menu are burgers. But be warned: If you go late, most of the food has already been snatched up, and pickings are slim.
