Comment: I should just shut it, but this Fish Fry is just too good to keep to myself (or the Lodi locals for that matter). Sure, you hafta drive a little bit to get up there, but if you want some of the best fish in the area isn't it worth it? I think it is...
KD's has plenty of options on Fridays, but for me it's the $15.00 8-piece perch or nothing. Yes, 8-piece! Of course, you can get less, but if you're like me and you love fish, why would you? This is basically a perfect Fish Fry. The eight perch are the real deal, and the fillets are large. These babies are home to a light breading that clings like the dickins and tastes like heaven. There is also no grease, no mess, and no regrets despite the massive portion. This stuff is the best.
The basic fries are basic (is that redundant?), but fried every bit as well as the fish (which is a compliment). A big squeeze bottle of tartar (that keeps you coming back for more) is so thick and creamy it's surprising that you can even get it out the nozzle. This stuff bathes the perch in benevolence and could easily be eaten with a spoon all by itself.
The last items on the plate are a nice slice of marble rye (or plain old roll if that's your preference), and a scoop of slaw with plenty of pop. The slaw is nothing really unique per se, and the rye is as traditional as it gets, but they basically allow the perch to take all the glory here - which is exactly how it should be.
KD's is clearly the local hot spot and the raucous atmosphere proves as much. Regardless, the service is always fast and friendly, and the fish is out of this world. Overall, we highly recommend this Fish Fry and think it is everything a small town Fish Fry should be and probably a lot more. We love KD's, but don't tell anybody...we want to keep this one to ourselves.
