Down South Fried Fish Co. Food Truck

So if you know me at all, you know that I am a 417 food truck connoisseur. Friends know they can count on me to answer any request for food truck recommendations. Best taco food truck? I got you. Best pizza food truck? Yep, I know that too. Best place to satisfy your random craving for kimchi fries? Absolutely.

So how, HOW, did I miss knowing about the delicious goodness being served up in the food truck of Down South Fried Fish Co.???

In my defense, they’ve only been up and running for under a year. But that still no excuse for a self-proclaimed food truck connoisseur!

Thankfully, my troublesome knowledge gap of this gem was brought to a close when I discovered them at a local festival.

Who is Down South Fried Fish Co?

The first thing that impressed me about their food truck was the people inside it. The owners, John and Rhonda Edie, were so friendly and inviting. They simply oozed with a good mix of midwest and southern hospitality.

John grew up in the south. Which of course naturally led to becoming an avid fisherman and having fried fish as one of the basic food groups. Fish fries were an event not to be taken lightly.

Over the years, Rhonda and John have perfected their batter recipe and have served up their fish to thousands of friends at church and at home.

Thankfully for 417 land, they have now also decided to share that amazing fried fish with you via their food truck.

What Do They Serve?

Down South Fried Fish Co. keeps it simple so they can focus on serving you the best fried fish 417 land has to offer.

Along with their fried fish, they serve a perfectly seasoned side of fries.

They also offer dipping sauces (which although delicious, are not really needed because the taste of the fish alone is just that good) and an assortment of bottled drinks.

You can also normally find them:

  • Mondays at Family Center Farm and Home in Nixa
  • Tuesdays at Dollar General in Sparta
  • Thursdays at North Point Church in Nixa
