Mel's Fish Shack has been a staple in West Adams since 1995. The casual, counter-service fish market is about the size of a dorm room, so the menu here is takeout-only. Mel’s is best known for Cajun-style seafood plates and soul food sides—our favorite order is a pound of cornmeal-crusted fried red snapper, cooked crispy on the outside and flaky-tender  on the inside. Pair that with a side of homemade hush puppies and some of their perfect potato salad, and be sure to get an extra order of their garlic-dill sauce to dip your fish.
