Tricky Fish Reviews


Here's the Blog in My Soup review Tricky Fish.

I have a few snaps from when we visited a couple of weeks ago. I had a catfish po'boy. I though the food was good, but not really my thing. I think I might go back soon and try the hot dogs.

The West Virginia Hot Dog Blog has there own Tricky Fish hot dog review.

The blog, Fork You, gives them a pretty bad review.

The Charleston Daily Mail ran story last week on Tricky Fish, but no review.
