    I vaguely remember the original, it was cheap food.
    The problem with this one is going to be the bread/otherstuff proportion, too much bread.

    I don’t remember this but I’ll give it a try. Sodium is high but what FF isn’t. For the price point, this is a nice alternative to the normal burgers and fried chicken sammies.

    Why didn’t they call the fish sandwich The Whaler?

    I’d rather have a Black Forest Ham footlong from Subway but that’s just me.

  6. Ryan says:

    Like most of BKs menu, that just looks like a mistake on a bun.

  7. Jonathan Wayne says:

    YumNo. Arby’s looks a million times better than whatever this is or you can get the much better Subway for $2.

  8. Nick says:

    If I owned stock in BK, I’d be very upset that they’re doing this while Chicken Fries remain off the menu.

  9. Mike S says:

    If the name is too ridiculous for me to say to order it… I’ll pass.
