Fish FryDay: A Patchy Guide and Map

Looking for a good fish fry in your area? Patch went fishing for you, and took the bait of your favorite spots. You can help us build our list of best fish fry spots in the Southland.

It's FryDay—and Patch knows all the best spots for fish. Check out our updated map of the Southland's best fish frys.

Patch has fleshed out the map with , in addition to the weekly and one-time meal deals at area churches and VFW halls. Click on each pinpoint on the map for details on that location's offerings, including price and menu items.

The map is color-coded for your convenience: VFW halls in red, parishes in purple, and restaurants in green.

Thanks to all readers who helped us build our list last week. Keep the suggestions coming! This week, we're welcoming restaurant recommendations. Which is your favorite fish fry in the area, and why? Did we leave one off the list? Let's fix that. Email Oak Forest Patch editor Lauren Traut at lauren.traut@patch.com, and we will add them to our map. Or leave a comment on this article.

We'll update the map every week.

Try St. Jude's in New Lenox - great food, table, service, large quantity, and friendly people to strangers.

I was at St. Germaine fish fry on Friday March 2 and had just the opposite experience from yours: tasty deep-fried fish, loads of french fries, cole slaw and applesauce, plus a exellent desert table for a "donation" (the basket was full of $1 bills) My companion had a baked potato, instead of fries, and it was HUGE. Within 15 minutes of receiving our order, and about every 15 minutes thereafter, we were offered second helpings of fish. We arrived at 5 pm and the room was full; people were still arriving when we left at 7:30. It's a family-oriented evening and I enjoyed watching all the little kids. Where would you rather eat - the Morgue? We were there on March 9th also, with the same great food and fun experience.
