This weekend I pigged out and got the two piece fish dinner. The portion was huge and even though I did not have breakfast, the portion was too much and I saved some of the dinner for later.

The fries were not spicy enough for me, the flavor came mostly from the frying and I would like to see some more sea salt on the fries to bring out their potato flavor some more. The cole slaw was okay, not very strong in flavor, but nothing bad that I can say about it. These two parts of the dinner were acceptable, not great, just standard fast food fare.
The hush puppies were a disappointment. I love hush puppies and so I was looking forward to eating these since I rarely have them and usually consider them a treat. But these were not flavored at all. It was just cornmeal deep-fried. I would have definitely liked some more onions in them and maybe some actually corn kernels, anything to make then test better than deep-fried cornmeal.
Since I did not pay for the dinner, overall I am not complaining. But I would definitely go back for the fish and see whether they have a dinner or bucket just with fish and forget about the other items. The price for this dinner is about $5 at the Captain D's in Durham.
Since I felt bad about taking just a free dinner and nothing else, I decided to splurge on dessert and ordered the Banana Foster Cheesecake bites. The price for four bites was $1.99.
