Our Story

The Beginning...

We started in the food service business as Cooley's Catfish Shack.  For over 25 years, we have evolved from cooking fried catfish and tasty sides for family members, to cooking for special events and festivals.


Past Events...

Our delicious fried catfish has been featured at the Fort Worth Stockshow & Rodeo, Mayfest, Main Street Arts Festival, Texas Motor Speedway, Las Vegas Motor Speedway, and the World Catfish Festival in Belzoni, Mississippi. 

Now...

We're mobile and have expanded our menu to include items like mouth-watering ribs, burgers, and pulled pork, and we can do the cooking at the site of your event!  From private parties to family reunions, big or small, the '52 Chevy Kitchen can get it done!
