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.

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...
