CATFISH STATION PERMANENTLY CLOSED DURING THE PANDEMIC
The Frenchy's Fried Chicken at this location has closed and been rather quickly replaced by this new outpost of another home-grown mini-chain. According to their website they started out of a trailer in Third Ward only a little over a dozen years ago and the website now lists six brick and mortar locations It falls a little more into the fast-casual category rather than fast food as the food is prepared to order.
There are grilled dishes, chicken tenders, seafood tacos and po-boys plus one pasta dish. House specialties include shrimp and grits, Cajun sausage with red beans and rice and more. A link of boudain comes with a very tangy remoulade sauce and crackers.
Besides the desserts listed on the website the in-house menu board offers Stonie Clark's Tea Cakes, an Austin specialty.
Dining-in accommodations are not plush but they're clean and the staff has been very friendly.
7/30/17 - Per the Chronicle, four more Frenchy's are converting to Catfish Stations.
