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

In the spring when the fast food restaurants (and others) push their fish sandwiches (and some only have them then) I do a taste test of my own. Although sandwiches vary from restaurant to restaurant even within the same chain Wendy’s or Arby’s usually win. McDonald’s is always low in the standings. One year it beat out only Kroger’s (not fast food but included that year) and the vending machine fish sandwiches at work). Maybe the fast food help in your area are less competent than here. I don’t know. I seriously can’t believe that anyone who likes fish likes McDonalds fish sandwich. I can’t say that any are outstanding. It’s fast food after all. Long John Silvers sandwich is better than McDonalds and it is resoundingly mediocre. Just sayin’.
