After presenting nothing but tantalizing signage on an otherwise empty shopfront for a long, long time, Big Skenny's Fish and Chips in Sunnyvale finally opened earlier this year. I went for lunch: 3 pieces of red snapper for $7-ish, and a basket of fried okra for an additional $1.50.
The fish was just about perfect--fresh, and fried in a minimal, cornmeal batter, served with tartar sauce or malt vinegar. The okra was also quite fresh. There are squirt bottles of ketchup and hot sauce at each table.
The simple menu also offers catfish, oysters, french fries, fried zuchinni, and (I think) coleslaw. The daily special board had dessert (cake today, $2). Now if only they had hushpuppies...
Overall, this is a promising addition to the Sunnyvale El Camino chow-ish scene
