A "Who makes the best fish sandwich in Wichita?" Challenge - Day 3 Lunch: Louisiana Famous Fried Chicken
By Mike Thayer
Back in 2018 I wrote an article on this topic - Who has the best fish sandwich in fast food? - and you can read that article of "worst to first" fish sandwiches using the link down below. But it's been four years since that review so I figure we're all due for a Who has the best fish sandwich update! Some restaurants have changed up their menu a bit with "New and Improved" fish sandwiches and there are a few more restaurants getting in on the game. It is Lent season after all, so in fast food/fast casual it's "Fish Season" and saavy restaurants are marketing you with their "Limited Time" fish sandwich offerings.
Today I reviewed Louisiana Famous Fried Chicken and their fish sandwich. They weren't part of the 2018 review.
The sandwich I received was good sized coming with two breaded Pollock fillets topped with lettuce, tomato and pickle. The Hoagie roll was dressed with a doctored up Thousand Island, kicked up Cajun spice style.
The fish was crispy but a bit on the thin side, if there weren't two fillets, the fish to bun ratio would have been off - as in too much bread. The lettuce, tomato and pickle put some complimentary freshness and tartness in each bite to balance things out and what makes this a better than average fish sandwich is the Cajun spiced dressing, providing a nice but not overpowering kick to the party. Overall a good sandwich, my only knock is there was no toast to the bread. Toasting that Hoagie Roll would have elevated this sandwich into 5 star status.
Scoring 48 out of 63 points and costing me $7.51 for a sandwich only purchase, I'm giving the Louisiana Famous Fried Chicken Fish Sandwich 4 out of 5 Bachelor on the Cheap stars. Reasonably priced, it's worthy of a repeat buy.
I only reviewed national fast food chains last time around and I'll be reviewing all those restaurants again. But for this 2022 review, along with the fast food joints I'll be including fast casual chains as well as the local restaurants, making it a "Who makes the best fish sandwich in Wichita?" Challenge!
I'm looking forward to seeing who has truly improved their sandwich from the last review and relishing the chance to sample new restaurants too! See what I did there.... "Relishing the chance..."

Louisiana Famous Fried Chicken is located at 4206 E Harry St, Wichita, KS 67218. I hit the drive thru just before 11 am and there were no cars ahead of me. The service was friendly, but not very fast. I was able to listen to two classic rock songs in their entirety on 104.5 The Fox, featuring Photograph by Def Leppard and Hot Blooded by Foreigner.
