Comment on A Comparison of Fast Food Fried Fish Sandwiches by Luci.

I tried a fish sandwich from Culver’s a couple years ago, and I thought it was quite a letdown. The taste was SOOO fishy, like they’d just snagged it from the water, I almost threw up.

McD’s Filet-O-Fish is always a great alternative for when you’re in the mood for something a little different. No complaints here. Tried Arby’s fish sandwich a while back. I really liked it, but didn’t like the tarter sauce that they used quite as much as I like the tarter at McD’s. Have never tried a Wendy’s fish sandwich, and probably never will, seeing as that I just don’t like Wendy’s much in general and have no reason to go there. Haven’t had a BK Big Fish since probably the late ’90s or so. It’s been so long, I can’t say I remember one way or another how it tasted. It must’ve been fine, because I’d think if it were terrible, I’d remember. I seem to vaguely recall cheese on BK’s fish sandwich at one time… maybe I’m wrong on that. In all honesty, it sounds to me like a lot of the reason behind the person’s low rating here has more to do with poor preparation from this particular restaurant than what BK intends their Big Fish to taste like. Meanwhile, I read a pretty good BK Big Fish review elsewhere. So I think I may have to give it another try sometime. 😉
