April 2006 Dirt Cheap Eats

The hunger-inducing aroma of fried fish hits you half a block away. Inside this Capitol Hill carryout there's room for little but the five deep-fryers and three staffers, so grab loads of napkins and spread out your meal where you can. The big hits are the four weighty filets of hot, crispy fried trout and croaker, the stewed collard greens, and the moist and generously iced strawberry cake. All that plus fried chicken and French fries, and we still had something left for the tip jar after breaking a twenty.
