Cheryl's Fried Fish

Cheryl's Fried Fish & Soul Food

"Cheryl's Fried Fish & Soul Food is a great soul food restaurant in Middletown, NY. Its the only local restaurant where I can get real southern-style home cooking. "

"Super cooking and a real friendly atmosphere. Cheryl is great, her family is, too. High standards, clean, and very tasty food. A real treat."

"Try the grilled salmon. wow!! Cheryl really cares about the quality of the food she serves"

"My family and I stopped at Cheryl's Fried Fish & Soul Food on our roadtrip last fall.

After driving 11 days cross country, I would count Cheryl's Fried Fish as one of the top two meals I ate in my journey. I had bacalao with rice and beans and my wife had chicken tenders and fries. Bacalao is salted cod fish, and I had not had the opportunity to eat bacalao outside of Spain. My dish had the salt cod, potatoes, red and green bell peppers, and onions, plus all sorts of tasty spices and seasonings. Meg's chicken fingers weren't greasy at all, lightly battered, and seasoned to perfection. Road food redemption!

The community likes the place too: when I was there there were many repeat customers who were coming by for their helpings of delicious soul food. Give it a taste: you'll love it!"

Josh Burker's Blog of Musings, Day 11

"Wow! The fried chicken was amazing, as were all of the sides — macaroni salad, potato salad, yams, mmm, mmm!"

"Great food!. This fried fish is outstanding. The bacalao is the best I've ever had."
