This is my favorite place in Lincoln to buy catfish. Or any fish for that matter! Unmatched flavor and quality fish has me coming back every time!

I hate catfish.......Mary Ellen's made me a believer! The Mac and Cheese is off the Catfish Hook!

I got the catfish and collards greens. It was absolutely to die for! The catfish was super fresh tasting and had a nice cruch with the breading. I get the collard greens every time as my side. It feels like im feeding my soul!

I've actually had most everything that Mary Ellen's offers and it is ALL INCREDIBLE!!!! The BEST food in Lincoln. Their ribs just fall off the bone and their smoked meats are to die for. Once you've eaten at Mary Ellen's you will be spoiled and find yourself comparing all other places with them.

Mac N Cheese

The Mac and cheese here is to die for. I grew up in the south so having a place in Lincoln where I can get delicious south food makes my little southern heart happy! Everything is so delicious. Definitely check it out.

Baked Beans

Had the fried chicken plus baked beans and cornbread muffin. Was DELICIOUS! Went early to avoid any dinner rush so I had lots of time to order...that's important when it's your first time there! Had a GROUPON so I got 2 meals! Tomorrow having ribs and mac n cheese....can't wait! Next time will be catfish! Food was fantastic and friendly service (got to chat a bit). Will be back!!
