Pittsburgh Moms Blog’s Guide to Our Favorite Fish Frys :: Lent 2018

Fish Frys are a large part of Pittsburgh culture, and is arguably the best part about the Lenten Season. Parishioners, Neighbors, Famlies and Friends all come together to eat delicious food and enjoy a time friendship and fellowship. 

If you are a Burgh Native, you probably already know all the best locations and have your list of favorites ready-to-go. But if you are new to the Neighborhood, or looking to try a different location and menu, use this list as your Guide to Fish Frys! 

Although there are a lot of Fish Frys out there, Our Contributors have put together a list of their favorite locations for you to sample. We have also added some links to other external resources that will help you navigate your way through the city all Lent long.
