Comment: We were running around the west side this afternoon and decided to buzz into @paddymacsverona for a quick bite.
In reality, I planned all our errands around lunch since that’s the way I roll - prioritize the Fish Fry at all costs. Paddy Mac’s was pretty busy this Friday and there was one lone bartender/waitress running the show. She welcomed us to pick a spot, but warned it would be a bit before she could get to us. We understood.
She wasn’t lying and it took about 10 minutes for her to get to us, and another 10 or so to get our drinks. It certainly could have been a lot worse, but she was a true pro and busting ass to make sure everyone had what they needed. When the drinks came we threw in our order and expected to wait “a bit” longer.
This bit turned out to be little as our fish fried quickly and she served it lickity split. The $12 2-piece was scalding hot and looked scrumptious. The fish itself doesn’t appear to be top-of-the-line, but the breading makes it much more alluring. It’s crunchy and salty which results in a pleasant overall flavor.
Plenty of fat crinkle-cut fries sit shotgun and really fill you up, some creamy slaw and tartar look to be Sysco standard, and the dinner roll is as basics as they come.This was a pretty decent Fish Fry, and for $12 you can’t really ask for much more. While to food certainly did the job, the real highlight was seeing our server doing it all without batting an eyelash. She single-handedly ran the show and did it with grace. I hope she gets a raise. She definitely deserves it.
