This is the only place in town—and probably the planet—where you can get a hot dog, a gaggle of fried whiting, and a piece of homemade coconut cake all un­der one roof and read some Scrip­ture on the wall while you’re at it. It’s the brainchild of the church­going family behind the original Fishers of Men on 130th Street in Harlem (and also the tiny Famous Fish kiosk up on 145th), who, with what must have been divine inspi­ration, snapped up the franchise license of a failing hot-dog stand and, corporate fast-food style, com­bined the two concepts (a fried fish shack and a hot dog stand) into one synergistic success. Unlike those Taco Bell–KFC dens of ter­ror, though, the food (especially the whiting sandwich and the whiting with grits) is not only edible but ab­solutely delicious. And no rats.
