The Big Fish is 100% White Alaskan Pollock, breaded with crispy panko breading and topped with sweet tartar sauce, tangy pickles, all on top of a toasted brioche-style bun. In Wichita, the sandwich rings up at $4.59 or you can get the meal for $6.79.
The toasted brioche-style bun was probably the best part of the fish sandwich. It had a tempting and visually appealing look to it. The Big Fish sandwich’s fish patty would probably be described as being similar to McDonald’s with their flat rectangular patty. Unfortunately, the patty was really thin. I’m not sure if there was more panko or more fish in the actual patty. To be called the Big Fish sandwich was the ultimate oxymoron; similar to Little John in Robin Hood.
While I enjoyed the toppings like the sweet tartar sauce and tangy pickles, the sandwich fell flat literally and figuratively. I don’t think the fish could be described as crispy or flaky. It was just a flat piece of fish that didn’t do much of anything. All I could taste was the tartar sauce and pickles.
I’d stick with the Whopper over the Big Fish sandwich. If you’re needing a fish sandwich though, I’d go elsewhere.
