Fried pickles

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 . . .

          REALLY? I've only seen the pickles seved quartered in TX (not whole, sorry)

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

      2. 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.
