Where is it? 2475 San Ramon Blvd., Ste. 6, San Ramon, (925) 362-8688.
When is it open? Lunch and dinner every day.
Why try it? It’s the only fast fish restaurant around. Where else can you get a full plate of grilled or fried fish for under $10? You order at the counter, so there’s no need for tips, and you won’t splurge on beverages because the only choice is soda (unless you get your fish to go and uncork at home, which is not a bad idea).
What to order? Get the crisp-and-silky fried catfish, the deliciously messy fish tacos, or the mild butterfish charred on the grill.
How much? The bulk of the menu is $7.99 ... less than you’d pay for a decent burger and fries.
Who goes? It’s a hallway of a dining room with a handful of small tables, so it attracts an in-and-out crowd of one-on-one diners.
