Gravy Fries


Let’s start with a crowd favorite! You came to Tricky Fish with a group of buddies, and we can’t think of a better way to start your meal than with a few orders of gravy fries! Freshly cut fries are topped in creamy beef gravy, tomatoes, green onions, and cheese. It’s the stuff French fry dreams are made of.


Kitchen Sink Gumbo


True to our southern roots, the Tricky Fish Cajun-style gumbo is always a crowd pleaser. Our Kitchen Sink Gumbo is so hearty it also makes a wonderful entrée, loaded with shrimp, chicken, Andouille sausage, fish, and rice.   


Peel & Eat Shrimp


Fresh seafood shines throughout our menu, and the Peel & Eat Shrimp is no exception! What’s not to love about succulent, juicy shrimp served with cocktail sauce?! Order by the dozen.


Gulf Oysters


Fresh oysters on the half shell are hard to come by, but at Tricky Fish, you can trust that ours are quality! We source only the best Gulf oysters in Dallas, and even in the off season when the weather is warm, we order only Gold Band Oysters. Gold Band Oysters undergo a specialty high pressure wash that kills any bacteria in the oyster, all while maintaining its quality and flavor.

Tricky Fish Gives Back: Help Us Support the Fight Against Blood Cancers

Cancer sucks.

And while we can’t singlehandedly stop it, at Tricky Fish, we want to be a part of the fight to find a cure against this ugly disease!


Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training – Lake Tahoe Bike Ride

Dubbed “America’s Most Beautiful Bike Ride,” Team in Training’s Lake Tahoe Ride – which takes place in June of this year - is more than just a scenic bike ride. Team in Training is sponsored by the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and their mission is to ride to both raise awareness and research dollars to find a cure against blood cancers. Riders can choose from various challenge levels on the ride, with the most popular option being a scenic 100-mile ride around Lake Tahoe, taking in all the beauty of the surrounding wilderness.


Team in Training North Texas Cycle Team Needs Our Help!

So where do I fit into the picture?

Glad you asked!

For the entire month of March, every $2 donation to the local Team in Training’s North Texas Cycle Team will be matched with an additional $1 donation from Tricky Fish! Every little bit helps, but we can’t do it without the support of our generous guests like you.


What Does My Money Go Toward?

When you give to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, you are supporting the research efforts to find a cure to these horrible blood cancers.     

Donations given to Team in Training are pivotal in finding a cure. Researchers are currently conducting over 300 research projects, exploring possible paths to the cure in the realms of immunotherapy and personalized medicine, and each dollar given gets these researchers one-step closer to a cure.
