Swissvale Fish Fry

Last year, I happened to be driving through Swissvale on Ash Wednesday, just a few weeks before everything shut down. Having heard rave reviews – I stopped for lunch. I had the fish sandwich, which was more like three sandwiches on one bun. It was delicious.

The fish often sells out, but the beer-battered grilled cheese has received rave reviews.
