Truth in Advertising

Once in a while, something lives up to its television advertisement. 

Alaskan Flounder Basket at Long John Silver's does.

Advertised at $2.99 it offers a good sized piece of fish, corn on the cob, (half an ear), some crispy stuff that crunches nicely but I don't know what it is called, packets of tartar sauce, and even two hush puppies.

Price $2.99 plus tax, minus senior discount came to $2.68, was delivered hot in three minutes or less. It is NOT a filet, as stated, but was a nice piece of fish, and of course you cannot see its license plate, so you have to take their word that s comes from Alaska.  It was on some crispy crunchy stuff, and the corn the cob was nice even though it had been frozen. I ordinarily throw the hush puppies, fried bread dough, away, but today I ate them, too.

I am always surprised when something lives up to its television advertisement, so this was a treat.  I will have another soon.

Hi Chuck I wondered what you were up too, I wish we had a Long Silver near me, I have always enjoyed their food, and I think the crispy things are extra coatings, that is the stuff they dip it in, that fell into the basket while deep frying the fish, hope you enjoyed the holiday. gg

Wish I would have read this earlier. John and I made a fast trip into san antonio and while there ate at Wendy's. We could have had the fish. Paula

I am glad that you enjoyed the fish meal. Our Long John Silver closed down a few years ago. Helen
