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...

The food is always very good. The catfish is crisp and hot. Service is slow but accurate.
