Long John Silver's Restaurants - Oh Brother! Another Tartar Sauce review...
I would've liked to rang their bell...both literally and figuratively. The chicken planks were delectable, as were the new style of fries they serve. The problem was with the tartar sauce and its consistency...or lack thereof. It had obviously been watered down, much the same way your buffet style restaurants derive pleasure from doing that to their Ranch dressing at the salad bar. Perhaps, I am just spoiled, and have become accustomed to receiving a quality tartar sauce that could stand on a spoon turned sideways. Whatever lofty ambitions they may have had at getting another patron to ring the bell as they exited the door, went down the drain when they decided to dilute my delightful dip.
In my opinion, the standard of your average fish & chips joint boils down to the tartar sauce. That is the deal breaker for me.
