To change the subject only slightly, why dear God are there no fried fish franchises anywhere near Madison? Why? Why? Why? I *love* fish 'n' chips. I'd kill for a Long John Silvers. Rape for an Arthur Treacher's. There used to be something out in VErona, but that was long ago.
What about Culvers?
In my opinion they are the finest fast food franchise I've found anywhere in the US or elsewhere. Far better than McD, Wendys, Long John Silver or any of the others (and I am a happy customer of all them as well)
They have a couple of very nice fried fish dinners that I have always found to be excellent. Their french fries are very good too, even if they are not exactly British chips.
Clean comfortable restaurants, excellent service staff, great food, fantastic frozen custard reasonable prices. What's not to like?
I seem to recall several around Madison. Unless I am mistaken?
