Just a Fast

Food Restaurant

At this small restaurant, Green sold fresh fish to his customers and charged $1 to fry each fish in his “secret” batter. Not only was his fish fresh, but his batter was irresistible!

Irresistible Batter

With a JJ Fish & Chicken’s large menu of delicious items to choose from, we have something for everyone. Don’t forget dessert!

Here at JJ Fish & Chicken, we are so much more than a fast food restaurant! Our love for what we do is a testament to our success, just as it was for our founder, James J. Green.
