    Cheese with fish just for the Halibut?



    Yes. Yes it is.

    interesting info. I've been scared to try the filet o fish precisely because of the weird "fried fish with slice of cheese" element. Plus, you know, who goes to a fast food restaurant to get fish? (other than Catholics during Lent, perhaps)

    Yeah, I could order it without, bt then it wouldn't REALLY be trying the filet o fish. I mean, an egg mcmuffin without the slice of Canadian bacon isn't really an egg mcmuffin to me.

    You know there are fast food restaurants that only do seafood?

    No worries! Months of lurking only to contribute to Cheese and puns. Perhaps I should be banned! :lol:

    Filet O Fish has cheese because cheese is awesome. And it hides the taste of the fish.

    Where I come from, a McD fish sandwich is just an appetizer. The main course would be a Big Mac, with large fries on the side. Beverage is a chocolate shake, and dessert is a hot apple pie. Or two.

    The McDLT was a stupid idea. What's so great about keeping the burger hot and the garnish cold? I've never heard anyone complain about all the ingredients of a sandwich being served at the same temperature. The gimmick packaging must have cost more than the food.

    Sounds like a great meal. I'll be getting you one of these for your birthday. :p

    The McDLT as a sandwich was a good idea, but the packaging didn't work.

    I have a defibrillator on my Christmas list. :lol:

    A few years ago they tried out McWings. Good stuff, but apparently didn't sell.

    The best thing on the menu is the original Cheeseburger. Small, but tasty. I've heard these referred to as "fun size."

    According to the latest reports, that is now Mexico.

    No, I'm not from Mexico. :lol:

    Too true. Long John Silvers for one, though all the ones around here are paired with an A&W, KFC or another Pepsico brand. And I love LJS fish & chicken.

    Where I've actually gotten food poisoning from is Popeye's & Pizza Hut. Not sure if I've ever tried the McD's fish sandwich.

    No, we understand that after such a long absence, you might flounder about a bit at first.

    I worked at both McD's and Pizza Hut in high school, back in the dark ages.

    All the food was delivered frozen, to ensure uniformity and price point, I'm sure. The exception was the pizza crusts at the Hut which were made fresh every day. But that was then.

    It wouldn't surprise me if nowadays the McD fish is partially or even fully cooked before being frozen to avoid the gastric anomalies.
