    How could I deny
    The heavenly tartar sauce
    And who would guess - cheese

    Don't mess with the Fish. From Wikipedia:

    "McDonald's removed the Filet-O-Fish from its menus in the United States on September 26, 1996,and replaced it with the Fish Filet Deluxe sandwich, which was part of McDonald's ill-fated Deluxe line of sandwiches. However, the Filet-O-Fish was brought back to its menus on a gradual basis starting in the middle of 1997, due to overwhelming letters and petitions, receiving the larger fish patty from the Fish Filet Deluxe. The Fish Filet Deluxe itself was discontinued at most restaurants early in 1998, while others still offered it until 2000, when it was finally removed from all McDonald's menus."

    They changed the formula in 1983-1984 and it wasn't as good =(

    I had a swansons Fillet of FIsh with mac and cheese last night.

    Is that in the same ballpark?

    #13 1 year ago

    Try the Arby's cod fish sandwich.

    Filet o fish will be the last thing on your mind.

    My whole life i have suffered from migraines, After being down for a day or even days this has always been my "go to" for my first recovery meal. lol.

    Quoted from skink91:

    I'd just like them to go back to using a full piece of cheese vs. the half piece that is today's standard. I wonder how much money they've saved since going half slice? Perhaps it was to reduce calories?

    #19 1 year ago

    Made from similar parts of the fish that hotdogs come from on pigs / cows? Well aside from the hoofs since fish don't have those?

    #20 1 year ago

    Worked the 8-2am shift unloading trucks during college, F-O-F add cheese minus tartar, 20 piece tenders, large fries and 5 sweet and sour sauces was My regular order on way home. Poor mans surf and turf.

    So glad I cook 95% of my meals at home now.

    Rendering the leftovers is a good thing.

    Filet o' barf falls short in comparison to the Cod Fish sandwich in the following ways:

    1. Not as tasty.
    2. Way way smaller in size.
    3. TOO much bun.
    4. Crappy fish "particles" compared to Arby's REAL cod fish.

    Who's high now!!!

    The true King of Fish Sandwiches= ARBY's ALL DAY LONG!!!

    I may also add: my cats won't even lick a filet o fish sandwich. The cod fish sandwich gets devoured.

    Absolute crazy talk.

    #24 1 year ago

    First added to the menu in 1965 when they realized that the catholic practice of not eating meat on fridays was hurting business. It wont be long until it is considered a racist menu item and cancelled.

    When they are 2 for $5 , it feels like Christmas morning!
    YUMMMMMMY

    #26 1 year ago

    Only $3.99!? That was a great deal.

    Um... you don't?

    They also love Stouffer's french bread pizzas. Just cheese though. There was a pepperoni incident a few years back we don't speak of anymore.

    Make sure the cheese has had a chance to cool off. . . cannot tell you how many times I've burnt the roof of my mouth eating those pizzas too quickly after cooking.

    I thought the same the first time I saw that there WAS a double... but somehow it throws off the ratios and I didn't like it as much as I would 2 of the singles.

    Having never eaten either of these sandwiches, I will go to both establishments and eat them both to give you a truly objective opinion.

    I will report my findings!!!

    No tarter sauce, just ketchup. Yes, that’s how I eat them to!

    Combine a single burger with a filet of fish, put some fries on top. McSurf and Turf Deluxe. Thanks Jack Black!

    Wait what?? Ketchup? No. No. That’s just...

    Negatore... negatoree... nope. No.

    And by eating a Filet-O-Fish you are actually saving the world... it’s a festivus miracle!

    Sorry, festivus goes against my religion and the quest to only watch good TV shows.

    You can take your festivus and stick it with your tarter sauce.

    I’ve always liked the Big Breakfast sandwich with the english muffin. Put the eggs, sausage and strawberry jam between the muffin and you got the best breakfast sandwich on the menu. Ate that for the first time circa 1975
