I was on their website and I got a code to get a free piece of chicken. When I went to the restaurant to use it they refused to honor it. They also no longer have the corn cobettes.

Factory fishing boats are destroying our seas and Long John supports them. Their drag nets destroy the sea floor while collecting everything in their path. Fried fried fried. It stinks like a huge carbon footprint.
