Wanted: Catfish and Smelt Fries

Orgullo de Mexico | Mar 31, 2003 11:23 AM

1) Who has the best Friday night fish fry featuring CATFISH, either whole or fillet? I'm looking for the type of fish fry featured at a VFW or Knights of Columbus as opposed to a full service restaurant. Chicago or Will County please!

2) The season will be approaching, where can one go and fill up the belly on those tasty little morsels known as SMELTS!! Years ago Cantigny VFW in Joliet used to have an annual smelt fry and there was ALWAYS leftover smelt, and the price was right for members of the VFW :-)
