Expect Classic Southern Comfort Food at Z’s Catfish

July 26, 2017 3:00 pm

Z grew up with a love of cooking. Her grandmother encouraged Z's natural passion, showing her how to cook everything from candied yams to cornbread. So when Z and her family had the chance to open their own eatery in Rockwall a few years ago, they took the chance without question. Z's Catfish was born.

Z's offers a menu of homestyle Southern comfort food, starting with the namesake catfish. The chef fries it and pairs it with sides like Grandma Sis's collard greens, black-eyed peas, candied yams, and fried corn. If you're not a fan of catfish, try the fried shrimp or chicken strips instead. Z's Catfish also offers smaller meals for kids, featuring the same fried catfish, shrimp, or chicken. Save some room for desserts, though, such as a slice of sweet potato pie or bread pudding, when you stop by Z's Catfish.
