If this wasn’t a Top Fish post it would be titled “It’s All About the Pie”. Diehl’s is an institution in Nitro,WV and deserves a full review at some point. For this post, I’ll try to keep my thoughts to their flounder fish sandwich.
Diehl’s fish sandwich contains two fillets of lightly breaded flounder. The fish had a mild flavor and the flavor of the crunchy breading didn’t overpower the fish. It was served on a soft sesame seed bun that was slightly crushed. The tarter sauce was tangy sweet and the shredded lettuce was fresh and crisp.
One of Diehl’s best items is the fried potatoes. They were an add-on – the sandwich doesn’t come with any sides. The waxy potatoes are tender and have large pieces of golden brown goodness mixed throughout. They are very lightly seasoned. You’ll need to add a shake of salt.
I’d tell you about the pie, but you’d just go and eat it all, leaving me with none.
