Expect a long line at the bright, inviting walk-up window of Catfish Fridays in Edgewood, where the specialty is, of course, catfish ($8.95 with choice of two sides). "Most of my customers go out of their way to come here -- from Baltimore, from McLean," says Cris Dinwiddie, who opened for business two years ago. "I'm amazed at the clientele I get."
This little place knows how to delicately bread and cook a fish. "It's the way they fry it. It's crispy and not soggy," Alexandria resident Leigh Washington says as she waits her turn. Of the side dishes ($2.50 for eight ounces), we liked the perfectly cheesy macaroni and cheese and the mild and creamy potato salad.
