This venerable catfish/buffalo place has been named to the Arkansas Food Hall of Fame so we went to try it. Although the catfish and the hush puppies were okay, the buffalo tasted like a real bottom-feeder, the french fries were absolutely and utterly tasteless, the...More

There were four of us that went to Lassis right after lunch time. The catfish was the best we have had in 35+ years. Hard to find catfish steaks anywhere else and the ones here were fantastic. The other couple with us had the catfish...More

I stop by frequently to get some catfish when in downtown. The fish is fried well and usually seasoned well. I take it home and eat it. The building is run down and yes it does smell like fish, since it is a fish restaurant...More

So glad my cousin lives in this city and knew exactly where to take me to get fried buffalo fish and it was everything I was hoping for. It took me back to my childhood days.

Don't listen to the hype! This place smelled like a fish market instead of a restaurant. Ugh!! The place is run down and the food isn't very good. I will not be back.

My husband and I decided to try the catfish after hearing about it on social media. The meal was delicious and the catfish is as good as everyone else raved. The service was okay. Will definitely eat there again.

I heard this place had excellent Catfish. In that regard, I was disappointed, but it wasn't all bad. This place is a little hard to find, it's a neighborhood mom and pop type place. For what it was, I thought the atmosphere was pretty typical...More

Went there for lunch. Had the buffalo ribs. They were good. Perfectly cooked. Good batter. Had slaw as one of the sides. It was okay at best. Hush puppies were pretty good. Fries were the frozen variety. They were average. I would like to go...More
