Yorkshire Fish & Chips may serve Denver's biggest fish sticks
Hey friends, Alayna here. I'm back with another story nobody asked for. 🙃
What's happening: I'm 99% sure I found the biggest fish sticks in metro Denver.
- They hail from a seafood shop on Pecos Street near U.S. 36 that my fiancé and I stumbled upon one recent Saturday afternoon.
Details: Yorkshire Fish & Chips may not look like much from the street, but this no-frills family-owned restaurant has been serving authentic homemade English fare for more than 50 years.
- Yorkshire's fish sticks — beer-battered Icelandic cod — come fried to crispy golden perfection, served in a humble paper tray atop a bed of hot "chips."
- Though the fries are forgettable (and could really use some salt, as could the fish), they're redeemed by the heaps of ultra-crunchy deep-fried batter bits dumped beneath them.
By the numbers: The cod is cut into roughly 9.5-inch-long, 1-inch-wide strips that outstretch their containers.
- A full order, with two fish pieces and fries, will set you back $17.95.
- A half order costs $9.85.
What they're saying: "I might die of a heart attack, but as long as I die eating Yorkshire fried fish, I will go into heaven happy," wrote local Jacob Gillman in a recent Google review.
Be smart: Most folks come here for the fish, not so much the ambiance.
- But with a sprawling parking lot, there are plenty of spaces to hop in your hatchback and have a perfect fish stick picnic.
Pro tip: Salt, lemons and vinegar are your friends here. Don’t be afraid to use them.
