The Best Fried Catfish In The Midwest Can Be Found At This Unassuming Catfish Hole In Oklahoma

Shad’s Catfish Hole is a hidden dining gem tucked away in Sallisaw that serves some of the best fried catfish and hushpuppies in the midwest. The tin building has no windows and the ambiance is lacking a bit, but the food is off-the-charts delicious. The locals have been keeping this place a secret for years, but I think it’s time we spread the good news.

Another great restaurant in Oklahoma that serves amazing catfish is McGeehee’s in Marietta. They have been in business for more than four decades, and very little has changed since they opened.
