-28 Filet-O-Fish is the best menu item at McDonald's, amirite?

by providenci70 1 month ago

I don't eat McD's anymore but the filet-o-fish was always damn good. It's essentially the same thing as fish sticks and tartar sauce, just on bread with cheese. It gets so much hate for being "seafood at McDonald's" when many of the people who hate on it would likely eat fish sticks with no issue, presumably

But that Double Filet-o-Fish tho

by tommie23 1 month ago

Filet O Fish are good but a double is too much IMO. I'd rather get 2 regular and keep the filet/cheese/sauce ratio intact.

Yeah I'll agree to this. Hmm next time I go to McDonald's I'll get it again, it's been awhile

Yep I'll go 6 fillets it's a school o'fish

by hoconner 1 month ago

The only item McDonalds has I like is limited to my country. It's a green/yellowish dille and herbs mayonaise. Give me all that sauce, they can keep the rest.

I got one by mistake once and I was surprised how good it was. After that, I'd get the filet o fish quite often. But not anymore

Steak Egg And Cheese Bagel has entered the chat

Ahhh I wish!!! We don't have bagel options here in AUS :( we only have egg/bacon/sausage McMuffins, it boggles me that we've never embraced the bagels!

by providenci70 1 month ago

They come and go on the menu. They've recently been brought back😊

I got one last weekend, and I swear that bagel must have been sitting there since the last time they served them. Rock hard and dry as hell

Yeah, they're a little rough. I don't think they sell many of them

by Distinct_Grand7462 1 month ago

Crazy that at one point fillet o fish were seasonal and only cost a dollar. Then McDonald's figured out what they had was worth charging more and making it permanent.

by Educational-Echo 1 month ago

That's interesting! I'm 24 so I can't say I experienced those glorious $1 times at my free will :3

by providenci70 1 month ago

Definitely too early for you. It was before and right around when they invented the "McDouble". It was only brought out during the lent season for obvious reasons. I think it was a loss leader for them like the McRib until it wasn't.

by Educational-Echo 1 month ago

My man you're speaking nonsense. The McDouble came about in 1997, but the Filet o Fish was permanent since the late 1960s nationwide, not seasonal. The one exception was when they reworked the fish sandwich for a year in 1996, but they brought the original back later that year.

I can't lie, it's my guilty pleasure. Even more so since I've disciplined myself to only having it a couple times a year.

Ahhhhh lol I totally agree. It was Christmas Eve, 2008 and I was leaving work and starving and it was midnight and the only joint I could find open in my town was McDonalds. I do not know what came over me but I got to the drive thru window and said, "………two filet of fish please."

by njacobson 1 month ago

by providenci70 1 month ago

It's only good when it's fresh. If it was made like a couple hours ago and then you order it - it's a soggy mess and horrible.

by Anonymous 1 month ago

Ok I was following along until you mentioned the slice cheese. What the hell is wrong with you.

by Anonymous 1 month ago

The only problem with the filet o' fish is the price. It's way better than their other sandwiches, but it's not "twice the cost of the 2 for $6 menu" good.

by Anonymous 1 month ago

Correct

by rashadbernier 1 month ago

Revolting is so funny lol it's pretty good though, I'd rather easy on the cheese and heavy on the tartar sauce. I'd probably get a double if it had less cheese, so it's probably good that it doesn't.

by IntelligentOlive 1 month ago

I havent eat at McDonands in many years, but if I was forced to eat the the fish sandwich is what I would get. Sonic has a great fish sandwich. The best fast fish sandwhich. It is by far the best thing on their menu. Too bad it is only available during Lent. Burger King has a pretty good fish sandwhich as well. It is much better than McDonalds' fish also.

I agree! I even get the double filet-o-fish sometimes.

by No_Row5192 1 month ago

Filet o Fish or chicken nuggets is the only item I'll eat at McDonald's. I'm used to eating absolute trash take out on the regular, but McD's beef is too gross even for me.

by Designer_Bar 1 month ago

That is revolting. Cheese and fish just don't mix.

by Anonymous 1 month ago

Usually, absolute agree I'd never sprinkle cheese over ANY fish. But the formula just works for me 😅

by providenci70 1 month ago

Y'know, I kinda agree. It's too expensive though😭. Burger wise though, the veggie burger or the fillet-o-fish (UK menu) are definitely my go-to if I'm not paying.

It became a thing in the 60s after the catholic owner of a franchise in a catholic neighborhood noticed that his sales dropped on fridays during lent.

One time after being out clubbing me and my girlfriend went up to the counter and excitedly ordered our fish burgers and a bunch of kind of cute guys behind us screamed out "YOU'S ARE SICK" That's when I first realised it was an unpopular opinion. Ain't no shame tho 😂🫶🏻

by roobmadisyn 1 month ago

I worked at McDs for 5 years when I was younger. I'd say I still eat it at least a couple times a month. The only thing I never had was the Filet o Fish. Something about fash food fish... Hard pass thanks. Not to mention, as it's probably the most rarely ordered item outside of lent, it's more likely that it's been sitting for too long more than probably any other item

by providenci70 1 month ago

How did you realize you enjoy a 1/2 slice of cheese extra rather than a full slice? have you checked that they break the slice in half, and do they charge you half for it?

by Intelligent-Slip4076 1 month ago

Oh no I definitely despise and see right through their greediness with that one but if a drug feels so good but you know it is bad for you, you just lower your standards a little right ahah

As someone who worked at McDonald's way way back in the day, I would have been extremely annoyed if someone rolled in at 10 PM and ordered a special order Filet. They were a pain to make when you were alone on the grill, and worse if you were really busy.

by Anonymous 1 month ago

I could imagine! I used to work FOH at maccas but I never actually saw how kitchen made them, was it just in the hash brown deep fryer?

by providenci70 1 month ago

The hassle was that they were their own deep fryer, you had to steam a bun, and it was away from the grill. During Lent you definitely had more of them ordered, but our managers wouldn't let us make like 5 at at time in the evening because they might have to toss them. So every 5 minutes you had an order for a single filet, while you were still frying burgers, toasting buns, and adding condiments. (This was a small town, so you were alone on the grill after about 7 PM) It was further complicated when a school bus would roll in and you wanted to start cooking a bunch of food. Manager would say "no, wait and see. They might just be ordering sodas. ". So you ended up with a string of single orders rather than a nice efficient 12/6 turn or something.

by Anonymous 1 month ago

Oh that's totally right! I remember it being the only bun that was steamed on the menu ahah Omg the school bus story sent me what a nightmare :') glad those days are over you've truely done your duty! Bless x
