Expect Classic Southern Comfort Food at Z’s Catfish

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.

Z’s Catfish: Don’t Miss the Coca Cola Cake

Z, the owner and namesake of Z's Catfish, was born into a cooking family. As a girl, she watched her grandmother whip up Southern favorites in the kitchen, and even participated in some cooking competitions herself. So when she opened Z's Catfish in 2013, she brought the same style of home-cooked comfort food to her commercial kitchen.

The stick-to-your-ribs fare obviously struck a chord with local diners, because it boasts nearly 60 glowing reviews on Yelp. So make the quick three-mile drive from Orion Rockwall to Z's to taste what they're talking about. Order a fried catfish, shrimp, or chicken meal and choose your sides carefully. The fried corn comes highly recommended, but you can also try collard greens, black-eyed peas, or candied yams. Save room for Aunt Cosy C's Coke A Cola Cake, a signature dessert at Z's.
