How does Hardee's stack up in the Fish Sandwich Challenge? #fishsandwich

By Mike Thayer

Hardee's Fish Sandwich
Nice Visual Appeal

Eating fish sandwiches on a daily basis for lunch and dinner...  You know I'm doing this Challenge in the name of 'Food Science' (cough), right?  I'm eating through the bad and average sandwiches so you don't have to...

In 2018 I reviewed the fish sandwiches from national fast food chains but I figured it's time for a fish sandwich update.  I'll be reviewing all those restaurants again, as there's been some changes, some 'new and improved' sandwiches as well as new offerings.  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!

Hardee's Fish Sandwich
A thicker fillet than much of the competition

It was Hardee's and their Fish Sandwich for dinner on this day.

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. Hardee's finished 4th out of 9 fast food restaurants sampled in 2018.

Hardee's makes a pretty good fish sandwich.  The fillet is crispy throughout, not just on the edges, the fillet is flaky on the inside and 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, needs more seasoning and more tart.

The choice of lettuce holds up to the heat of the fillet

Scoring 50 out of a possible 63 points and costing me $4.61 for just the sandwich, Hardee's registers the highest score so far in this challenge after visiting seven restaurants.  The cost is lower than average making it reasonably priced and it's a good sandwich making it a repeat buy.  I'm giving the Hardee's Fish Sandwich 4 out of 5 Bachelor on the Cheap stars.

4 stars
