Coleman's fish sandwich

I was so excited to see that Jane and Michael went to Coleman's Fish Market here in WV. I live two hours away from Wheeling, in Morgantown, but luckily my grandparents live in Wheeling. They (jane and Michael) were not kidding when they said this was the best fish sandwich ever. People around here swear by them, and it's not just "famous for being famous". Grease isn't even a factor, the fish is delicious, light and crunchy, and is served on regular Wonder bread. I can't stand fish sandwiches with tomato, lettuce, and a huge bun. What is up with the buns being five times too big on most fish sandwiches? To me, a big bun = bad fish.

Anyway, it is SERIOUSLY worth a two hour drive for this sandwich. Get the regular sandwich (with tartar, if you must).

    I've had the Coleman's fish sandwich, and while it is really good, if I were in the I 70 / I 79 area I would go to Wholey's in Pittsburgh for their fish sandwich. That being said, I find myself driving through Wheeling alot more often than I find myself in Pittsburgh.

    Wholey's sandwiches are great, but I personally prefer Coleman's. They're both good sandwiches, and I love going to the strip in Pittsburgh.

    My only issue with Colemans is that if you get one at the market, the service stinks. Everytime i'm there it just seems that i'm a burden to the people waiting on me. Also, you can buy Coleman sandwiches everywhere and other places that sell them, besides the market, serve them on buns which I prefer.

    Oohh...the bun would be a dealbreaker for me. It's gotta be on that wonderbread or whatever it is.
    The other bad thing about Coleman's (other than service) is that a lot of their other menu items are iffy...like a couple soups I've had there. I've personally never had bad service or encountered people with attitudes there, but I'm definitely not a regular.

    I was also not impressed by a soup I once had, but I do think Coleman's makes a terrific fish sandwich. And I don't mind the white bread instead of a bun. But, being a Pittsburgher who takes his fish sandwiches very seriously, I still have to give the nod to Wholey's.

    Hey, the Mountaineers whipped Pitt good last night. But it is impossible for me to not like a state that provides us with one of the truly great Roadfood restaurants in the country, Hocutt's.

    Travis Hocutt is so talented that if he decided he wanted to start selling fish sandwiches, it would most likely be the best fish sandwich I ever had. He hasn't let me down, yet!
