McDonald’s Filet-O-Fish is the kind of thing you’d expect to see served at an inner city public high school. It’s plain, frozen and fried. It’s a little depressing to look at because it’s just fish with cheese on bread. And yet I often order this… mostly because there are not any other cheap, non-beef options on the menu. Sometimes, I want fast food and I don’t want a burger. The Filet-O-Fish is the only real option on the menu.
Normally, this item costs over five dollars. Thankfully, recent deals have lowered the average price I pay for one of these things to about three dollars. Even then, I don’t think it’s that good. There’s nothing fresh on this thing. It’s a frozen fish patty they deep fried. I wish they’d put veggies on it, like Burger King does, but I realize a lot of customers might not like that. It’s also really small. It’s a tiny sandwich about the same size as a McDouble, except it’s fish so it’s less filling than beef… at least it feels that way.
Overall, I find this sandwich depressing. Every time I eat one of these, it’s because I’m too hungry, tired and lazy to think of something else to eat. Every time I finish eating a Filet-O-Fish, I obtain renewed determination to quit the trash that is fast food.
