LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Eat My Catfish, Arkansas’ favorite seafood restaurant known for its
delectable catfish, crawfish and Southern-inspired cuisine, announced it will serve free meals to
Central Arkansas tornado victims and first responders at its new Riverdale location on Thursday, June 1, 2023. The new Riverdale location officially opens to the public on Friday, June 2. The
event will offer a way for Eat My Catfish to give back to the community following the outpouring
of support it received when the restaurant’s Breckenridge location was heavily damaged by the
March 31 tornado. The Breckenridge location is currently being rebuilt and the Riverdale
location becomes Eat My Catfish’s second Little Rock location.
“We were overwhelmed with support from the community when our Breckenridge location took a
direct hit from the tornado,” Eat My Catfish President and Founder Travis Hester said. “We know
firsthand how important it is to help your neighbors and this is just one way we can give back
and serve our neighbors who were also directly impacted.”
The event will be exclusive to the Riverdale Eat My Catfish location for dine-in guests.
