If you work on the north side of Longview, you need to try Duke's. It looks like a hole in the wall, but has the best fried catfish in Longview. The staff is great and attentive. The place is usually pretty busy, but pull on in, you will find a place to park. Go on in, there is more seating... More

Folks at Duke's treat everyone great and its easy to tell that its a local favorite as there are always cars out front when you pass by. We had their fried catfish fillets and chicken fried steak and both were good, but personally I thought the fish was better. Try one of their great desserts, too! Wait staff is super... More

My husband loved the whole fish, and did finish his and the rest of mine. Good stuff. The okra and beans were delicious as well. Our waitress anticipated... More

The wife and I decided to give Duke's a try. I must say we were pleasantly surprised. A little bit of a wait to be seated but it was well worth it. The fish and shrimp were excellent and even the sides were noteworthy. I even liked the beans which is a rarity for me at reataurants. Overall service was... More

On a Tuesday at 12:30pm, hardly anyone was there. We were greeted immediately and a server took drink order almost instantly. Good strong sweet tea! The baked potato was good as well as the fish filets. They were very good size. The amount of okra was small, but before I could even say anything they brought a bowl full of... More

My husband and I eat here at least a couple of times a month. The quality of the food is always top-notch, and the service wonderful. The people who work here really know how to treat customers. They always get our usual drinks and a bowl of pickle slices for my husband before we even ask. We are made to... More

I love Duke's baked catfish, it has really good flavor and spices. Hush puppies and beans are also good.

My boyfriend asked for whole fish and was pleasantly surprised! I asked for the child's menu and got it! Two whole fillets, excellent hush puppies and a baked potato. We were very pleased with the quantity and flavor of our food. You cannot go wrong here. The waitstaff is helpful and eager to please. You won't be disappointed. Be sure... More
