Where can you find fried pickles? I have never tried them before, but they sound amazing. Preferably somewhere in or near the Village or even Union Square. Thanks!

      I'm sorry, but I thought Brother Jimmy's fried pickles were awful. They aren't whole pickles (or 1/2 pickes) but those fake sliced pickles that are made to put on burgers. Then again, aside from BJ's, I've only had fried pickles in Texas, so my standards are pretty high : )

        In the South, we only have fried dill pickle slices. They're easier to dip into the fabulous sauces that are offered. I've never heard of a whole fried pickle. Interesting . . .

          Never tried 'em. Just know they serve 'em.

        Whatever you do, skip the ones at Soho Park. Truly dreadful!

        I'd had them in NC a few years back and loved them. Thought I would at least get something similar at SP but no dice. We couldn't even finish them, they were so awful.

            The fried dill chips @ Brother Jimmy's are really tasty- very much like what you get in he south and crave for the rest of your life- haven't seen them anywhere else in NYC

                    BLT Burger had some as a "special" for a while - they were very good and came with a mustard dipping sauce.

                      I don't know if it's at all Heartland's, but I remember having them at their local by the South St. Seaport.
