Best fried catfish you can get! Chicken strips were good but nothing like the fish. Food and service are awesome. We will definitely be going back!

Have visited three times for lunch. The catfish is outstanding. Highly recommend. Sides are good but I have not tried any other dishes.

We go at least once a month for the fish. Best fried fish around. Love the seasoned fries and the okra. Salsa is delicious. Serve old fashioned hamburgers. Good Mexican food. Also serves breakfast all day long.

The family and I made an order to go. We had catfish and shrimp. The catfish was fried too hard and was so salty we could not eat it. It was a wasted trip and money. Everyone says it is really good, but what else around do they have to guage it with. Not worth the drive. Sorry.

In a tiny town, a small-town cafe, serves up the best fried Catfish we have ever had anywhere. We have traveled the entire U.S. and enjoyed some good friend catfish in a few places. No where, no how, have we found any nearly as good as the fried Catfish at Iredell Cafe. The sides are very good also. We are... More

and this is in Iredell, Texas. They have advertised this as Cajun Catfish for years upon end. The original owner sold out but the recipe went with the place and is just as delicious as always. You can't go wrong with anything you order.... of course, the menu is limited. But it's all good. And never, ever leave without a... More

My wife and our friends LOVE to find obscure, out of the way restaurants. This is OBSCURE with a capital "O" - and we'll be back! Iredell is located in Bosque County in central Texas and a bit of a drive from anywhere. But, when you get there, the Cajun Catfish must be the best anywhere because we had to... More
