These 7 Restaurants Serve The Best Fried Catfish In Tennessee
The south is well known for its love of fried chicken and banana pudding, but fried catfish should also be right up there on the podium of honor. Since Tennessee is landlocked, we don’t get a ton of fresh shrimp and cod coming in by the ton, but fresh catfish? Well, that we can do! These seven restaurants are scattered across the state and make for a delicious dinner out and about. How many have you visited? Did your favorite make the list?
