White Castle may seem like a great place to hit up if you’re exceptionally hungry, as the chain offers their famous slider-sized sandwiches in packs of up to 100 (via White Castle). However, the idea of eating dozens of their panko-breaded fish sliders in one sitting didn’t seem to appeal to too many of the Mashed survey respondents. In fact, 16.17% said the chain served up the worst fish among the several fast food options. Burger King’s fish fared even worse, with 17% of participants calling it the worst for seafood.
The YouTube channel All You Can Vegas reviewed the White Castle fish slider, and it reminded them of “a smaller version of the Filet-O-Fish.” (Based on our survey results, that wouldn’t count as high praise for a lot of people.) With its Big Fish sandwich, Burger King appears to be making a conscious effort to outdo its rival McDonald’s. BK’s fish sandwich comes on a toasted brioche bun and gets pickle slices – two things you won’t find with the Filet-O-Fish. Burger King might have been trying hard, but it failed to impress the blogger at Wichita By E.B. “It was just a flat piece of fish that didn’t do much of anything,” the reviewer from Kansas said. “All I could taste was the tartar sauce and pickles.” Maybe it’s no surprise, then, that Burger King got the second most votes in our survey of worst fast food fish.
