Burgers, chicken nuggets, pizza, tacos......

What are you supposed to eat when none of the above sounds good?

A crispy fish sandwich of course!

But which fast food joint makes the best fish sandwich? 

In the name of 'food science' (a'hem, cough), I'll be sampling fish sandwiches from all the national fast food chains.  Which restaurant and their version of a crispy fish sandwich will get top honors?

I'll be going through the restaurant list, one meal at a time.....  What?  Eat nothing but fish sandwiches for lunch AND dinner?  Like I said, done in the name of 'food science'......

Here is "The List" of fast food joints I'll be trying out during the course of this challenge:

Who has the best sandwich?  The worst? 

Two sandwiches for $5
Hardee's Beer Battered Fish Sandwiches

I headed to Hardee's today for lunch.  They have a two fish sandwiches for $5 deal going on right now, it is after all the season of Lent.  The Hardee's version of a crispy fish sandwich features a beer battered cod fillet and fried until  crispy.  It's a classic preparation coming with lettuce, tartar sauce and served on a toasted sesame seed bun.   These were good sandwiches.  The fillets were crispy throughout, not just on the edges, the fish to bun ratio was spot on, the lettuce fresh. The only knock I have is the tartar sauce.  While it was nice and creamy, it was a bit boring.  Hardee's makes a good fish sandwich, but it's not the best I've had thus far.  Is it a repeat buy?  Yes, especially for the price with this current deal.  My total price for the two sandwiches, no fries, no drink, was $5.40.  That's Bachelor on the Cheap friendly!  The Hardee's version of a crispy fish sandwich gets three out of five Bachelor on the Cheap stars.

3 stars

Nice fish to bun ratio
Nice Presentation Kudos to Hardee's

So far, I've eaten at seven restaurants and sampled their version of a crispy fish sandwich, but have I sampled the best fast food has to offer yet?

Keep reading and spend wisely my friends.....
