Catfish Hole is open for business after a Monday night fire

We haven’t been by yet, but after calling the Catfish Hole today, we can confirm that the best hush puppies this side of the sun will continue to flow despite a brief fire Monday night.

The fire caused damaged to the ceiling, attic and parts of a women’s restroom, but was not enough to keep the place closed for too long.

“We’re definitely open, but I gotta warn ya, the food’s really hot,” joked whoever answered the phone this afternoon.

That’s good news for fans of not only the restaurant, but also of the Arkansas Razorbacks. The Bobby Petrino Live radio show is broadcast live from the Catfish Hole every Wednesday night during football season.
