When a successful restaurant is owned by one family for many years, that family must be doing something right. Dan Hixon has owned the catfish kitchen for more than 30 years and when you ask him what makes good catfish, he says: "clean grease and the right temperature." We know there is more to it than that, so rob wilds went to burns, tn to find out why people from all over make the long drive to Hixon's restaurant.

Rob Wilds has been a part of the Tennessee Crossroads family since 1993. As one of our most frequent producers, and the recipient of several journalism awards throughout his various careers, Rob finds that the best reward for his work is meeting the fascinating people and visiting the interesting places he encounters in his travels.
