The 12 Absolute
Best Fish Sandwiches In The US
By JULIA DUNN
Bridgetown Finer Meats
Cincinnati’s Bridgetown Finer Meats offers a classic fried fish sandwich every Friday: rich beer-battered haddock filet topped with lettuce, tomato, and pickles and your choice of bread. It is best partnered with Bridgetown's tangy homemade jalapeño tartar sauce and maybe a side of their beloved mac n' cheese.
Sal and Son's
The lake trout sandwich at Baltimore’s Sal and Son’s Seafood is prepared by breading a large Atlantic whiting filet and flash-frying it to a golden brown. This Baltimore staple is served between two slabs of white bread and often paired with hot sauce to add a sharp contrast to the otherwise mild flavor.
Fred's Meat & Bread
Among the food stalls at Atlanta’s Krog Street Market Food Hall, Fred's Meat and Bread is popular for high-quality classic sandwiches with a slightly modern twist. The Blackened Salmon Sandwich — served with avocado, red onion, and arugula — is a big fan favorite.
Olde Tyme Grocery
Olde Tyme Grocery is a small roadside joint in Lafayette, Louisiana, famous for their po'boy, a sandwich first made in the early 20th century to feed strikers. If you go there, you have to try the catfish po-boy, as you can’t beat seasoned, fried, buttery catfish paired with Olde Tyme's fresh, crunchy, soft French bread.
B&H Dairy
The tuna melt is considered New York’s comfort food and an American staple. B&H Dairy Kosher Restaurant, one of New York City's oldest remaining kosher dairy lunch counters, serves the famous sandwich between two fluffy pieces of challah, with a smoked whitefish salad and gooey cheddar.
