My favorite was a competitor to LJS, Arthur Treacher's F&C. LJS has always been a poor substitute for Treachers.

You guys have just help me decide where to eat lunch! Then I might run by the Waffle House for some hash browns....Can't eat at Long John Silvers because it gives me the squirts...can't eat at Waffle House cause it gives me the squirts...What do some of you guys live on - Tofu and soy patties??? Your problem is you don't get your quota of greasy food each week to build up an immunity.

I do the same thing. Once or twice a year is good for me. I like it but it is awful greasy. Oh well everyone needs a good cleaning out every so often.

Haven't eaten LJS since the 80s. Back then from time to time I would get a really bad sour stomach and could burp and clear out a room. And the taste in my mouth was sickening. Once I figured out it was LJS greasy fish and malt vinegar I never went back. And I won't go back again!!
At least not until oldtimers sets in...

LJS is a guilty pleasure for sure, even before I was dieting. Me and a few coworkers would hit it up from time to time. They sure make that hake fish taste good. But you know you've been there afterwards for sure.

I used to hit the one near my house about twice a year as well , I thought I was the only one to suffer from the LJS craving, it was a LJS/KFC combo , the food was always cold and the order messed up. Luckily it closed and is now a matress store. I thought the only good fast food fish place was Capt.D's, but I have'nt seen one in years, we used to visit the one at Little York@45.

Maybe only eat 2-3 pieces and you can avoid prairie dogging it on the way home.

As i sit here and inhale my 100 calorie lunch only to be hungry in about 20 minutes, I too would like to visit LJS for a colon cleanse. About once every 2 years but now it will be my next cheat day haha.

I worked at Capt. D's back in High School. When I got home, my mother would make me strip down to my underwear before I went inside. My clothes would stink so bad, she didnt want them inside. I ate their food then and I still love it now.
There are a few left. I know of one in Alvin and Baytown still has one.

My Papaw used to bring LJS home for dinner every Friday night. I loved the hushpuppies and the "crunchies". I think it was LJS - might have been Captain D's. I remember going to pick it up with him and it was back when the inside used to look like the inside of a ship... not just a plain Jane fast food joint.
