El Greco beckons on Wednesday nights.

It is that rare place that offers a full fish fry on a night other than Friday.

The Wednesday night fish fry

Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. But perhaps even more surprising, there's also a Wednesday fish fry on the Northwest Side.

We often pass by El Greco Family Restaurant, 9143 W. Appleton Ave., across from Timmerman Airport, and say, "hey, we oughta check this place out."

So, last week, we did just that.

When we arrived, you can see from the image above that I was greeted with the news that Wednesday, like Friday, is fish fry night, at El Greco. Don't mind if I do, thank you very much.

While everyone around me dined on evening breakfast, I had the fish.

For just under $10, I got four pieces of battered cod, two potato pancakes with applesauce, cole slaw and a dinner salad.

The fish was tasty, though the batter could have been crisper, and the potato pancakes, while not life-changing, were pretty good – flavorful but a little dense.

There was a lot of food and I doubt anyone leaves El Greco hungry.

As fish fries go, El Greco's on this night wasn't amazing, but it was pretty good and quite filling. And I remind you that this night was a Wednesday.

I used to go here every Sunday after church while growing up. It's my standby when going to eat with that picky friend who isn't used to eating "fancy." They have everything on their menu, albeit everything is mediocre, but you know what to expect. My go to place for a belgian waffle craving.
