Eat This Now: Catfish and Shrimp

By Jackie Fender on April 14, 2014

Sometimes I make the greatest, yummiest discovers when poking around sleepy strip malls.

Case in point: Beau Legs Fish and Chips.

Located in a Lacey strip mall, Beau Legs is a casual, intimate dining option specializing in Southern style cuisine with Cajun flair. Think catfish, jambalaya, hush puppies and sweet potato pie. They even have alligator.

Let me tell you this, Beau Legs is soul food at its finest. Everything I've sampled was flawless and well executed.

My Eat This Now recommendation?

You need to eat Catfish and Shrimp ($12.99) now. Featuring two crispy, breaded catfish filets, several meaty fried shrimp accompanied by perfectly seasoned fries, slaw and a couple hush puppies thrown in for good measure makes this a generous serving of all kinds of goodness for those less decisive. Served up with sides of hot sauce and tartar, each table also has all the extra fixins you may desire to add more flavor such as malt vinegar and several hot sauce options. I didn't inquire but if you can request a side of their po'boy sauce, DO.

As I said, the establishment is intimate but service provided is uber friendly and the menu delivers fuel for your soul.
