        I know I'll get stomped on for this chain reference but does anyone remember Arthur Treacher's?

          Wow, Arthur Treacher's Fish and Chips brings back memories.

          Kildare's has very good fish and chips.

            Has anybody been to this place Rick Nichols recently wrote about? May not be the "fish and chips" you're looking for but it sounded like an interesting old-time fried shrimp and fish joint.

          Fado does a good version.

            I have to second Fado's fish and chips. They have great cole slaw, too.

            If you are willing to take a drive,Henry's Cafe in Pottstown is the best around.The cod is battered lightly and done to perfection with hardly any grease on the paper when you're finished.Portions are generous.

              The Royal Tavern makes a good one, but they only offer it as a special now every couple of weeks. For Pete's Sake isn't bad.

              Surprisingly, the best I've had in the area is at Sligo in Media.

                Check out The Grey Lodge. It's in the northeast with good fish n chips and great beer selection.

                    If you want to take a short drive to Ambler, the Shanachie has the best fish and chips that I have had outside of Ireland and the UK. The fish is tasty and moist with a crispy exterior and the fries are handcut. Even better, they have HP brown sauce and malt vinegar at every table.

                    To add to the experience, they have live irish music most weekend nights.

                      I've been wanting to try Kurth's since I read about it in the Inquirer, but they are closed for vacation and I never seem to be in that area at any time. I hope to go when they come back from vacation, but remember, it's only take out.

                      Society Hill Hotel Bar in Old City has nice fish and chips. Very crispy, light batter.
