After properly cooking a lobster, its once-brown exoskeleton turns bright red, letting chefs know that it's both ready to serve and profoundly embarrassed for showing up without pants. Make a meal of deliciously mortified seafood with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of fried catfish, steaks, and more at Catfish Sam's, located in Arlington.
Catfish Sam's fry-masters hush grumbling bellies with a hearty menu of fried catfish, charbroiled steaks, and homemade desserts. Broiled lemon-pepper catfish ($13.49) beckons ravenous forks atop a fluffy bed of rice pilaf, and the cornmeal-coated and golden-fried all-you-can-eat catfish dinner ($18.99) keeps tummies happy and full. Beef buffs can dunk broiled bites of New York charbroiled steak in zesty garlic sauce (14 oz. for $16.99) or pair strip steak with a trio of jumbo shrimp ($21.49). Before diners surrender their silverware, homemade treats such as Butterfinger pie and lemon ice-box pie (whole pie, $12.95 each) allow them to indulge in a appetite-destroying dessert rather than going home to consume the model of the Palace of Versailles made out of Rice Krispies Treats.
- Excellent food, and side dishes. Very good service and atmosphere. Well worth the drive from anywhere in the metro-plex – jim t., Yelp, 9/12/10
- Not one time in the many times I have eaten at this restaurant was I able to finish my food as there was so much given. Always needed a container to go, as I surely wasn't going to waste one bite of it. The service was excellent too – nancyu, Yahoo! Local
The aroma of catfish filets frying in the kitchen wafts through Catfish Sam's and unites with the scents of hand-breaded-shrimp appetizers and charbroiled rib-eye steaks. Each table comes dressed with complimentary sides, including no-fat pinto beans, coleslaw, housemade yeast rolls, hush puppies, and green-tomato relish.
