On the Hook Fish and Chips

On The Hook Food Truck

Since our trip to England in 2001 we have been looking for good Fish and Chips. About a month ago we saw the On The Hook Food Truck in the parking lot of a store we where shopping at. We decided that we would come back and get some for our dinner, but by 5 pm when we went back they were gone. So since the we have been following them on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/OnTheHookFishAndChips/ and watching their website https://onthehookfishandchips.com/.

Today was the day we their truck returned to our area. The parking lot was full and we waited in line for 30 minutes to order and another 40 minutes to get our order. It was well worth the wait. The chips were beer battered, crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. The Cod was also beer battered perfectly. It was crispy on the outside and tender and fluffy on the inside.

On the Hook was developed by two young University of Wyoming engineering students in May 2016, On the Hook Fish and Chips has evolved from two students with connections to a multi-truck enterprise serving hundreds of thousands in all of Wyoming, Colorado, Nebraska, and Utah.

The menu is pretty small most of the time it is just Line-Caught Wild Alaskan Cod Fish and Chips which is 3 pieces of hand-dipped Wild Alaskan Cod, beer battered fries, and our house made tartar sauce and sriracha mayo. You can add additional piece for an additional fee. Prices for the Fish and Chips are not posted anywhere, but I am sure that is because the cost of the fish fluctuates with each shipment.

Their Alaskan Cod is caught using hook and line which means that each fish is brought aboard individually and immediately headed, gutted, and flash frozen to perfectly preserve the fresh caught quality and tenderness. Their original recipe beer batter was created by the founders over months by experimenting and fine tuning while they were in college. Batter was not the only thing they created from scratch, they created signature dipping sauces are included with every meal.

Our family enjoyed every bite. Clearly by the lines we are not the only ones who enjoy it. Get there early or you might just miss out.
