There are a lot of sit-down spots in this area that serve fish and chips. But sometimes you just feel like standing while eating fried stuff, and we don’t blame you (we blame state fairs). At Jack’s, you won’t wait a long time for breaded fish or grilled salmon with hand-cut fries and dill tartar. Everything smells amazing, too, so you’ll probably make strangers drool as you walk by with your paper tray.
