Best Friday Fish Fry In Cleveland Ohio 2018
Ask anyone that knows me. Fish is my favorite food. Abby and I have had many arguments over the years about my love affair with fish. If it were up to me, I would eat fried fish 8 days a week. Because I enjoy breathing and having a pulse, I have compromised with Abby to no more than 2 days a week. When she is not looking, I attend many of the fish fry events in town.
If I had a food license, my house would be on the list. Since this is not the case, The Cleveland Leader sent me out on a quest to find the Best Fish Fry in Cleveland. There is something about seeing a styrofoam container piled up with fried perch, rainbow trout, flounder and orange roughy. Hush puppies, coleslaw and macaroni, and cheese with a slice of bread gives life meaning. If we did not list your favorite place, send us an email and we will see for ourselves. Like Hillary Clinton, I carry my own hot sauce in my computer bag.
