RE: Long John Silver's or Captain D's?
I've had the fish and chips at Long John Silver's, but I'm not a fan. I remember when the first Arthur Treacher's opened in Charleston, West Virginia in 1969 or 1970, and it was excellent -- nothing like it became a few years later.If Long John Silver's could ever turn out food that came close to the way Arthur Treacher's did, at first, I'd be there once a week.
We do have Captain D's in the Columbus area, but I've never been to one. As an aside, several years ago, when I was coaching a junior league football team, we had one kid, a boy named Bobby, who was a real Captain D's fan. You could always tell when it was Tuesday without having to check a calendar. Every time the kids would huddle up during practice on Tuesdays the quarterback could barely call the plays because Bobby couldn't stop talking about how excited he was. "Tomorrow they have the specials at Captain D's and me and my mom can't wait."
Bobby will be a high school senior this year, but no longer plays any sports. He does work at Captain D's, though.
