I do not understand positive reviews. I was disgusting !!! Tasteless, greasy. The worst fish nad chips I've ever had !!! BIG disappointment !!!! Skutečně hnusné, tak špatnou rybu a hranolky jsem ještě nejedla. Těsto úplně bez chuti, hranolky vysušené, velké zklamání.

The batter was light and the fish was so fluffy! The lightly battered shrimp was delicious too! Cooked to perfection! If you enjoy fish & chips, don’t miss out on this gem!

TCFC is a non-mobile food truck fronted by several outdoor picnic tables with umbrellas in a small fenced cement courtyard. We arrived about 1:30 PM and the tables were full. So we just asked a couple at a table if they would mind sharing. You order at the...More

I stopped in here while staying at a nearby hotel. It’s very casual as it’s just a food truck. I got the combo cod and shrimp.The fish n chips and shrimp were very good. I would stop here again for deep fried fish or shrimp.
