Brad-
In the local restaurant in my town, they always ask you if you want cocktail sauce or tartar.  Tartar is undoubtedly the most common condiment.  For me, I prefer eating it plain or with some malt vinegar.

    Cocktail sauce and tartar sauce are the usual toppings. Like BB, I prefer it plain or with malt vinegar. The malt vinegar is on the tables at Wholey's and, if you go to The Oyster House, you also have the option my favorite topping, their house spicy malt vinegar.

      Well, there's more than one way to skin a cat or a fish......so tomorrow night we're meeting up with buffetbuster at Rook's in Ambridge.  One of their specialties is a fried fish sandwich.  Also wings.  Also burgers.   And yes, they have pie.  Sounds like a great evening spent with a good friend.

          Tarter sauce is common for take out. Down the strip I think they just have various bottles out, like tarter and vinegar, hot sauce.

          I don't get out much. I think of big jim' s, doritos, roy's by the tracks, eliots backstreet BBQ, chick's.

          I don't know if chick's actually have a sandwich, but I know they have breaded fish. The baked cod was the best fish I ever ate. It was fresh fish with the right spicies.
          Yes, I just checked, fish sandwich.

            If there is a good place in Scottsdale I would like to know. I pass through there on the way to camp.

              lleechef and I met with buffetbuster Thursday night for fish sandwiches at Rook's Eastside Saloon in Ambridge, Pennyslvania. It's a pretty near place, and the fish sandwiches were terrific. The fries were OK, but the cole slaw must have been really good. leechef ordered the slaw instead of fries with her sandwich and she and buffetbuster both dug into that. Rook's fish sandwich isn't Wholey's, but I'd go back again, after we've tried a few more Western Pennsylvania fish sandwiches. Although, I might consider a returbn visit just to try the hot Italian sausage sandwich with peppers and onions. Buffetbuster got one to go. I'll wait for his report.
               
              Truth to tell, even if the fish sandwich hadn't been as good it would have been a fun evening.

                A thank you to lleechef, who sent me a link to this really good article from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette about Wholey's.  Although it may not have as the reputation to non-locals as Primanti Brothers, it is every bit as much a Pittsburgh institution.
