We stop in quite often on our way to the lake. The catfish is always fresh tasting and never tough. Definitely worth stoppinh for!

“Real catfish prepared with best light batter and best flavor”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014

They make real catfish not that rubber fish many restaurants have switched to. Good food. Good prices. Attentive service. Real clean and meat eatery. One of our favorite stops.

“Ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2014 via mobile

Based on other reviews & word of mouth we went to Punkin's. I was told the chicken fried steak was pretty good so ordered that with a shared orders of hushpuppies & fried green tomatoes (tasty & spicy but not too much). My friends had fried cat fried (crisp light batter) & BBQ (dry version no sauce). The potato salad with a dill pickle base was great. My steak was unfortunately just ok & I had a bit of heart burn after.

“Big Catfish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014 via mobile

Stopped in here while passing thru Paul's Valley. Husband ordered the ribs and catfish combo. On the menu it says it comes with 2 of each but it came with 3. The catfish was huge! Plus a piece of Texas toast, baked potato and beans. The catfish was very good. He said the ribs were just ok, kind of tough and too much sauce for his liking. But the catfish was so good we would come back for it!

“A little piece of bbq heaven!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013

The outside of restaurant and the inside ambiance was quite simple... so wasn't sure how good the food was going to be. But my husband and I were very pleasantly surprised. Waitstaff were AWESOME... food was BEYOND awesome in both flavor and value. I would recommend their platters. We ate for days on the leftovers!!!
