Catfish Alley, Las Vegas

Some places are an awkward call from a "Chowhound" standpoint, and we have had to deal with that in regard to Catfish Alley on East Flamingo since they opened. The menu is limited, and there is not much atmosphere in a bland strip-mall location. But what they do they do awfully well - catfish fried so sublimely that you can eat with your fingers and hardly have any grease residue at all (it is all about fresh oil and a high temperature), and some sides that show a lot of love going into the cooking (the owners are some of the nicest folks we have ever met behind a counter). They are even doing ribs now on Tuesday, which could expand the menu a bit if they are well-received.

But now that the Review Journal has found the place - it is easier to make a recommendation. "What she said..." can suffice here. Limited menu, negligible atmosphere, but if you are in the mood for catfish we have not found any better in Las Vegas (including places like M&M and Kathy's that have been around for a long time).
