its decent greasy fast food that doesnt happen to be a burger

so yes, on occasion
Link Posted: 3/13/2005 9:41:45 AM EST
If you like everything in batter, Ill eat some chicken there from time to time.

Like TheRedHorseman said, when you don't want a burger and Taco Hell is out of the question, it isn't bad.
Link Posted: 3/13/2005 9:43:07 AM EST
I admit I haven't been to one since I was a kid. Then I saw one on the road the other day, and thought, it still exists!
Link Posted: 3/13/2005 9:43:26 AM EST
I've eaten there 3 times & i've gotten really sick everytime. That shit is nasty, imho.
Link Posted: 3/13/2005 9:44:39 AM EST
I love it. Mostly because there aren't any where I live and I only eat there a few times a year when I'm traveling.
Link Posted: 3/13/2005 9:44:53 AM EST
I love it! But they have closed the 2 LJS that were near me.... now I have to drive like 20 miles to get yummy fish

I love the place. Awesome hushpuppies

What do you order there?


Fish of course! Sometimes shrimp but the shrimp are really small with a ton of batter to make them look big.

What kind of fish do they serve there? Cod? Catfish? Is their tartar sauce good?

Long John Silvers
Why?

Yeah I like it but I'm looking to shed some weight so I'm avoiding the place like they distribute the plague.

It'd be nice if there was a Long John Silvers within a reasonable distance.

Skippers just doesn't cut it.

LOL! The last one was a joke, even though I tend to see Long John Silvers in not-so-nice areas.

I thought Long John Silvers was a male porn star in the '70s. I'm pretty sure that's who Clean_Cut was asking about.

I've eaten in one that was 1/2 Long John Silvers and 1/2 A&W rootbeer. They had a keg fountain for the Root Beer. Was tasty.

Remember a thread about two weeks ago that talked about how some fast food places were staffed by minorities?

There were two near me, both staffed by blacks who don't seem to like white folks too much and aren't in to the whole "Cleaning the place up and wiping things off" thing.

Now there is one place left, but with the same staffing and cleaning goals last time I tried them.

I am not going to try them again without good reason.

Too bad, when I was a kid my folks really liked them.

I think that long Dong silvers

Captain D's pretty much put LJS out of business in Nashville.

The only thing I put on their fish is malt vinegar. Delicious!!

I've loved their chicken planks since I was a kid. The original fast-food, fried boneless chicken where I'm from. McNuggets can't compare.

Probably the best item on the menu is the orders of fried clams.

My usual order is the 2 fish, 3 chicken dinner with fries, slaw, hushpuppies and lots of malt vinegar. I also get an order of friedl clams that never seem to make it home with the rest of the food.
Link Posted: 3/15/2005 7:58:04 PM EST
The fish is usually a little too oily. The chicken is quite good. Fries and hushpuppies are good as well. The cole slaw is awesome.

Their shrimp isn't all that great though. The baked fish dinner is good.

A friend of mine in IN lives about 200 yds right behind a LJS. The employees started feeding his
dog the crusties and other assorted crap, out the back door of the restaurant. He plead with them
to stop feeding the dog, especially since every once in a while the dog would get a serious bout of
the shits.
Needless to say the dog dies within a couple years, didn't look too overweight but the vet says
the dogs cardio system was a mess. Imagine that.
Every once in a while he goes over and busts the valve off their grease pit and lets it drain
into their parking lot.

Good fish, shrimp, and batter. The fries really suck though, even worse than Wendy's.

Chicken planks drowned in Vinegar. MMMMMMM drown the fries as well.

I was under the same impression. IIRC (which, honestly, I'm not sure I do), the robber took the manager to the back of the place for one reason or another. Manager believed robber was going to execute him, so he fought back with a hammer and won. Manager was fired for fighting back.

Again, there's a high likelyhood that this might not be what happened. Please correct me if you can find a link...

The shrimp kick ass

I will eat their chicken strips with fries and hushpuppies meal. They are decent. Otherwise, I hate fish.
Link Posted: 3/15/2005 9:38:56 PM EST
Once every couple of years. I like the fish and love the hushpuppies. I have lost track of how many times I have been sick after eating there, I blame the coleslaw. I stopped eating the coleslaw and I stopped getting sick.
Link Posted: 3/15/2005 9:41:51 PM EST
it's a lot cheaper to eat at Long John Silver's than at some tourist trap seafood place.

I only eat there a couple times a year

I like 'em. . . but it may have something to do with being a fan of Long Dong Silver.

Damn. I haven't had LJS in a few years.

I absolutely hate fish, but the greasy battered chunks of stuff they serve kicks ass!

Fuckin' grease on grease cooked in grease served on a plastic plate in a pool of grease drippings with crunchy stuff and greasy hush puppies. All this dipped in a giant vat of tartar mystery sauce.

There's one a few miles from where I work. I am so fuckin' there for lunch tomorrow.
