Voted Vicksburg's Best Catfish for the last nineteen years. Our regular catfish dinner plate includes a half pound of catfish filets-original, grilled blackened or thin-sliced with pickled onions, french fries, cole slaw and cornbread served with a glass of our specialty blended tea. Come taste the original Johnny's Sauce, a Vicksburg favorite for eighty years. Our specialty dessert is Mississippi Mud Pie. We proudly serve Pepsi beverages distributed by Brown Bottling Group.
