Head over to one of The Hush Puppy Restaurant’s two locations for southern hospitality and all the catfish you can stomach. This Vegas staple claims to have “some of the finest catfish west of the Mississippi.” And we believe them. Weekly specials include all-you-can-eat BBQ ribs, shrimp and the popular seafood platter complete with oysters, clams, shrimp and more treats from the sea. Adventurous eaters can sample more unusual fare, like southern fried frog legs and Louisiana alligator tail. The fried green tomatoes and seafood gumbo complete the down home experience.
