While the catfish is very good at this homespun cafe [ fishing nets! vintage neon! ] in South Austin, it’s the fried green tomatoes that keep us coming back for more. We’re old school catfish hounds and Cherry Creek has a reputable take on the classic, Deep South style with a careful hand on the dredge and frying part of the operation.
But it’s the fried green tomatoes that are something special. It’s a big basket so you’ll want to share or perhaps just get them as a meal unto themselves. Ranch dressing for dipping is required eating on this dish.
We’ve been eating at Cherry Creek for a coon’s age now and have never had a bad meal. There’s also a pretty decent thrift store next door and you can always buzz back into downtown via the historic and beautiful Emerald Forest neighborhood
