A Central Arkansas-based catfish restaurant chain will soon expand to Fayetteville.

The restaurant, called Eat My Catfish, is set to open at 32 W. Joyce Boulevard, in the space formerly home to Fuzzy’s Taco Shop.

The restaurant got its start in 2008 with founder Travis Hester cooking up catfish in a food trailer in Benton Arkansas. Since then, Hester expanded to open his first brick-and-mortar in 2012, and has grown to operate locations in Conway, Little Rock, and North Little Rock.

As you might expect, the menu focuses on fried catfish dishes, along with crab legs, boiled shrimp, crawfish, fried chicken, and po-boy sandwiches.

If all goes well, Eat My Catfish will be open by the end of September this fall.
