Good food and fast service.

I know it's a family place but having a beer with the meal would have been nice. Everything we ordered was delicious and served up within 10 or so minutes. I would eat here again.

Regular or blackened, the catfish is worth finding this place. Ample portions with a good selection of sides. I got 3 fillets and the baked potato (huge) and creamed spinach (yum) and I was stuffed. Sorry, closed on Monday because they're catching it fresh from Lake Texoma that day. So if you're passing by Denison, take the North Loy Lake... More

Went shortly after it moved to current location - was good but not overly impressed. Went back a couple of months ago and was much better. Good portions of everything. 'Family' atmosphere.

Huck's has "Mississippi style" catfish and "burn it" catfish which is just crispier. I had a fillet of each. Both were pretty good but neither as good as the catfish at Aggie's in Itawamba County, Mississippi. The fried squash was really good and so was the slaw. Portions are generous and service is very good. Being from Mississippi, I loved... More

Had to have it blackened due to my gluten thing but oh so delicious just the same! If you're lucky enough to get the chance to try this place roll the dice and expect 6's! Yuuuummmy!

Very popular restaurant by looking at the parking lot, extremely busy during dinner hours. Both times I visited food was average, the fillets were overcooked which resulted in being dry and not much flavor.

Some of the greatest catfish on the planet. You have to eat here, you know its great when you have to wait in line because of all the locals eating there every night.

This was some of the very best catfish that I have ever eaten! Not only that the hushpuppies were some of the best also. More than worth the short drive from Dallas, Frisco, or McKinney! If you like catfish, this is a place you must visit. I had the half order, two catfish fillets, pinto beans (outstanding) and fries. I... More

The catfish here is always good. The vegetables are good and the desserts are wonderful. Ask for extra crispy catfish.

My best friend lives in Denison, and some years ago I went with him and his parents to Huck's Catfish in Pottsboro, Texas (west of Denison). The catfish there was the very best I had ever eaten! A few years later, the restaurant moved to its current larger location on US-75 outside Denison. I always work in a meal at... More
