The restaurant, originally called Barrow’s Shady Inn, opened in 1943 and made a name for itself with its fried catfish (fried catfish was the only entree and potato salad was the only side at the original location). Its new name celebrates that: Barrow’s Catfish.
Barrow’s Catfish will take over the spot that housed LA Smokehouse on Earhart at Carrollton with an expanded menu (fried shrimp, crawfish bread, gumbo, and more) and plans to open its doors on June 1.
