Peg Leg Pete's Fried Grouper Sandwich

Ahoy (Again) to Peg Leg Pete's Grouper Sandwich

Between the Bread has a knack for offering up drool-inducing photos and descriptions of the many sandwiches she samples. But her story of her most recent encounter with Peg Leg Pete's fried grouper sandwich has given us a major craving.

I have already sung the praises of Peg Leg Pete's fried grouper sandwich, but one visit wasn't enough. So on my last trip to Pensacola, dad, Dee, and I took Andrew to taste the strange deliciousness of American cheese on fried fish.

Thankfully, Peg Leg's did not disappoint. We ordered two dozen oysters, an afternoon bushwacker, and a few fish sammies. I got the Cajun grilled grouper this time (below), and though the fish is just as succulent and buttery, the fried version still wins out.


Keep reading for more.

I don't necessarily subscribe to the philosophy that everything is better fried, but Peg Leg's just knows how to treat a slab of battered grouper. The fish is so indulgently unctuous, like a buried treasure in a kaiser bun with cheese. Just trust me on this.
