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.

The Burger King big fish sandwich was much better years ago. In the 80’s the fish was actually big and much better than what they sell today. If you want really good fish sandwich, go to the Original Oyster House in Pittsburgh, PA.
Bread to fish ratio of off!
I will not buy a fish from Burger King again. Where is the fish? Arby’s is so much better and a big piece of fish.
I bought a big fish this evening at the Burger King on Rt. 541 in Mt. Holly, NJ. There was no panko breading, the pickles were nasty. The fish was lukewarm and wilted lettuce. I picked it apart then threw it in the garbage.
This was my last fish sandwich from BK.
