    Quoted from TheHueManatee:

    I've never had a filet of fish before.
    Because of this thread, I almost broke down and got one when I was running errands today. But I didn't get one ....cos if I did, pinside would win.

    Damn you Pinside!!

    Looks like he went on a fishing expedition and brought home some chicken sauce.

    #107 11 months ago

    I don’t even know what chicken sauce is.

    #108 11 months ago

    Don't have it here either, but i can imagine.

    It was pretty good. It was a little on the salty side....but it's was better than what I was expecting. The steamed bun was a nice touch too. I don't like tartar sauce so I substituted it with mayonnaise. (aka Chicken sauce) I could see myself ordering another at some point.

    Damn you Pinside....you win this round.

    #110 11 months ago

    Yuck! I will not eat anything with mayo.

    #111 11 months ago

    I imagined wrong, mayo eh? Isn't tartare sauce just mayo with a bit of gherkin and some capers?

    Must be a french thing. I put it on my hotdogs and hamburgers with ketchup.

    Goes great with freedom fries too

    Count me in on this club.
    I have a filet o fish about 2 times a year.
    I do enjoy them.

    Never heard that one, you learn something everyday!

    Pretty much, yes.

    Quoted from RCA1:

    Pretty much, yes.

    yeah, i've made it many, many times. Was just wondering how some one can not like tartare but like mayo. Must be an aversion to the pickle.

    That's exactly it! Not a fan of the pickle.

    Quoted from RWH:

    I love Micky D's fillet o fish. The best cod sandwich around here (all year long) is at Frisch's, they are good and their tartar sauce is killer.

    No way, Izzy's cod sandwich smacks any competition off the plate. If that doesn't convince you the potatoe pancake will.

    #121 11 months ago

    My dad worked for a short time at McD's in the early 60's. He told me back then the fish sandwiches were made by hand. Whole fish came off trucks and they would have to skin and debone them before frying.

    #122 11 months ago

    l love me a filet o fish too.

    #123 11 months ago
    Quoted from Puffdanny:

    Have you ever had a Filet o fish on weed?

    Have you ever had one not on weed? I wonder what that’s like...

    #124 11 months ago
    Quoted from Pinstein:

    Fish Friday Everyone! I was wondering if MickeyD ever had a fish character like the hamburgler or grimmace. Turns out I guess they did for an ad or two. Meet "Phil A. O'fish."

    Quoted from o-din:

    Captain Crook

    Pretty sure we had a Captain Crook glass (along with Grimace and Ronald)

    Well played putting his head on a pike though... don’t want him stealing your fish sandwiches!

    #126 11 months ago

    Jack in The Box had some similar characters way back if I remember correctly.

    And now I am craving a Moby Jack.

    Gotta say those Burger King fish sandwiches a few days ago were terrible.

    Quoted from Murphdom:

    On the topic of McDonald’s has anyone ever had their pizza? Apparently it was an item on the menu in the 80’s and early 90’s which I don’t remember. There are still 4 locations that still serve it. Two in Ohio, one in West Virginia and one in Florida.

    Best hangover food ever.

    #128 11 months ago

    If you disqualify the 2 am Donner Kebab. It's been known to prevent hangovers if enough chili sauce is added.

    #129 11 months ago

    I want that as my Fish Tales topper!

    #130 11 months ago

    The other day, I had a “wish” sandwich.

    This picture rather accurately sums up my last few months.

    Next time SUB sesame bun and you’ll have the perfect sandwich. Sometimes I’ll SUB Big Mac sauce but I prefer mayo.

    By the way, finally got around to trying KwikTrip’s fish sandwich: it was great and obviously a tribute to the OG f-o-f (had the one slice of cheese melted on it).

    Could’ve used more tartar sauce for my taste, but will definitely get it again.

    A Commercial Fisherman told me Monkfish is used for Fillet of Fish since they run out of everything else.
    Look up a photo of a Monkfish. Yum!

    #136 8 months ago

    They now exclusively use Alaskan pollock, so no.

    That’s not to say I won’t eat monkfish... not really particular about how weird a fish looks before I would eat it I guess.

    In some parts of the world people eat much worse.
