You are probably thinking, generic sports bar, I got it. But its not. Its really special and this is why: its generally pretty quiet and by quiet I mean, not teeming with hipsters and not blaring music so loud you can’t interact with the person next to you. The bartenders are really nice and helpful. They love helping – they’ve helped me give directions, with minimums on tabs, I mean, you name it, they will help you with it.
But the thing that keeps me coming back to this Shangri La is not the Buck Hunter or the free PBR on Tuesday nights: its the divine, succulent, I-could-eat-a-million-of-these catfish poppers. I’m day dreaming just typing those words. Catfish poppers. They come in a little brown bag and they are the perfect addition to any pitcher of beer.
If the prospect of catfish makes you a little squeamish (I mean, its a fish with facial hair) there are a million other fried options. But you have to at least give them a try, because once you pop you cant stop – or at least thats what happened to me.
