(AZ Family)   Oh my cod. A famous fish-and-chips restaurant in Phoenix goes up in flames. Fortunately not a sole was hurt, but rebuilding it will be a pain in the bass   (azfamily.com) divider line 61

Meh. My Pete's is on 44th and Indian School. I don't go out to the Aves.

I'd hate to see them close for the halibut.

I have never understood the attraction of Pete's fish & chips. People rave about it, but they are some of the worst fish & chips I have ever had. These are not breaded fish filets - they are flat, thin rectangles of breading. They are more like reheated smashed fish sticks than anything resembling a real fish & chips dinner. Pete's... I hate to kick you when you're down... but you farkin suck.

I guess they'll have to rebuild the plaice.

Douse the flames with malt vinegar!

Because when I think seafood I think Phoenix.

Next time I'm in Nebraska I think I'll check out the lobster to see if it's as good as I heard.

Fire tears through popular Pete's FIsh & Chips restaurant


Read that headline as "Pete's Flesh & Chips" which, if you've ever eaten there, explains a lot.

True dat. Was driving through Gila Bend one time and they had a banner across the main drag advertising the town's Shrimp Festival. Evidently they have some shrimp farms there or something. Did a double take on it though.

Wow...you puntificated your puntacular opunion so well. Just when i thought it was safe to go back in the water, Puntifex Maximus gets greenlit(maybe not, im a tfer again)
. My only hope is that the mods greenlit him out of sheer irony, like wearing a members only jacket.
 
2012-07-21 08:16:52 AM
Pete's Fish & Chips is the nastiest...

They buy frozen fried food in bulk. Then they take the frozen, fried food and stick it in a fryer to fry it again. It's sick.

But sometimes you just have to eat that crap. (I go to the one on 44th like ecmoRandomNumbers).
 
2012-07-21 08:27:30 AM
OK...it did get greenlit. Amazing. Maybe fark has such a big audience now that they have to cater to the LCD. Drew is probably at the mercy of some table full of lawyers and bankers and they were the same people who kept fresh prince on the air for six years.

NOt true, I know, but how about this for a premise? a big time mob rat moves in with a radical muslim in Gary, Indiana. It writes itself.


So many angles.
 
2012-07-21 08:30:14 AM
The media will try to put a positive angler on this story. Perhaps the city can set up a donation fund to reopen the restaurant, assuming the citizens aren't too shellfish. We should tuna in later for a followup, to see if the police dragnet dredges up anything interesting. I lampreying that this tips the scales in favor of stronger fire safety legislation, myself. Candiru.

Don't be such a basshole. It's not everyday you can perch yourself up at a place where the food isn't crappie!
 
2012-07-21 08:40:06 AM
The only thing that survived the fire was the insurance policy.
 
2012-07-21 08:50:36 AM
probably just a fluke.

I would join that site.
 
2012-07-21 09:08:29 AM
Sounds like they can scale up the plaice now. Maybe move to a new spot. It'll cost 'em a few fins though. Then they'll have something to crab about.
 
2012-07-21 09:15:36 AM
So what I'm gathering, is that this isn't the best plaice in Phoenix?
 
2012-07-21 09:18:32 AM

Evil Mackerel: I would join that site.


It can't be much worse than the one with humans.

Van Buren and 27th Avenue. Thats a really classy neighborhood. Lots of terrible mexican strip clubs that hold 15 people max and naaaaasty hookers some people throw pennies at, mixed with industrial buildings and truckers. That Pete's is located directly across the street from a trailer park.

THIS!!!

Fond memories of that 27th Ave Pete's though. When I worked at Shamrock Foods, during Lent most of the Catholics on my shift would head down there on Fridays for lunch.

Great, I just bought a deal from Grouper.

Even though it wasn't great, Pete's was one of the things I missed when I left Phoenix for the Pacific Northwest.

Until I walked into an Ivar's.

Screw Pete.
 
2012-07-21 10:28:28 AM
That place was more about the family atmosphere than the food. It's usually packed to the gills.
 
2012-07-21 10:47:46 AM
From the way the locals are talking about it, I could get a better meal from the market. But then again, as I'm one town over from one of the biggest fishing ports in the Northeast, that's not very hard.
 
2012-07-21 11:17:35 AM
popular /= famous.

Famous is stretching it.

//nasty place

There is something wrong with a place in Arizona being famous for it's fish and chips.

It's OK. You'll get over it.

It's a lousy facsimile of fish and chips like a filet-o-fish sandwich without the bun is fish and chips.

There are now places in Phoenix where a reasonable facsimile of fish and chips can be had, mostly at Phoenix's poor facsimile's of Irish pubs.

Phoenix itself is a lousy facsimile of a city.

44th and Indian School is where I went that one time.

HOLY CARP!
