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

Raised in Cincinnati where we REALLY like/eat fish sandwiches and during lent we eagerly hit all the fish fries at Catholic churches, fire departments, etc. McDonald’s still does it best for the money. Just order it with NO cheese or lettuce and light tarter sauce and it will be made fresh. Frisches, using cod on rye buns, used to be the best but not now and they charge over $4.00. Arby’s is okay, nice sized portion, but the treat there is that since they sell reubens, you can order their fish on rye like we were raised on here. Forget Wendy’s for anything except their overpriced salads and maybe the chili. I can eat the fish at Long John’s and like it at Captn D’s but neither put out a good sandwich. Yes indeedy, Malcom nailed it.
