Catfish Willy's has been a neighborhood staple for the last 18 years. Since opening its doors, customers have enjoyed an array of food services such as dine-in, takeout and private catering events including onsite-cooking with our mobile food unit. All of the food is made from scratch and served with genuine southern hospitality.

Since this small family owned restaurant opened its doors, customers have enjoyed down-home casual dining and exquisite catering events all creatively executed by chef/owner,  Melanie “Penny” Allen. Melanie is a Dallas native, she graduated  from the University of Houston with a Bachelors Degree in Communications  and San Jacinto College where she received a Culinary Arts Degree. 

Melanie a successful restaurateur with 20+ years of catering,. Alongside cooking good food, Melanie is a BOSS when it comes to balancing her life, which includes managing, consulting, event planning, Christian ministry and as a single parent being an active FFA mom. The busy business owner while wearing many hats is excited about showcasing all facets of her business. 

She enjoys cooking, serving others and takes pride in all the dishes she prepares – each dish is prepared and served with an extra dash of “LOVE”.  

Melanie says, “Don’t let the name fool you” - we do more than fried catfish.
