Best catfish we have found.

They have the best quality catfish by far. I love the green tomato relish and the hush puppies. Their beans are really good too.

My wife and daughters always get the chicken fried steak with all the trimmings. But my mother and I always get catfish, all catfish, and nothing but the catfish. Although I can't decide if I like the plain or the Cajun better. The only place I've ever eaten in Paris. When you only go by once or twice a year,... More

It's your basic fried fish but if you want to eat in, beware as there is no non smoking section. 1 or 2 smokers will fill the place so you don't see too many inside but the drive through is busy.

We had arrived late at our motel, hungry. We wanted something quick, and close. We found the Catfish King restaurant. We had the Senior Catch. Plenty of fish, fries, beans, hush puppys and coldslaw, plus a drink . . . $5.49 each, plus tax. And, man was it good. I wish we had one in Oklahoma City.

We frequently travel to southern Oklahoma and while passing through Paris a quick stop is in order for either lunch or dinner. Simple well executed menu of catfish, shrimp, stuffed crab and chicken tenders in various sizes and economically priced. A senior plate is available all day, as well as daily specials. Catfish is served fresh from the fryer piping... More

Very good catfish & hush puppies topped with all the trimmings. We like to get and take home. Order a side order of onions to go with the meal.

Visited the King, all the food was good, found that the catfish batter was a little thick compaired to other catfish kings, Maybe the just a bad day, but a lighter batter would add to the fish. the location is just off the loop 286 on the north side of town and it is easy in and out. nothing special...
