$15 for $30 Worth of Fish, Chicken, and Soul Food Sides at El-Amin's Fish House

Many people associate the name El-Amin with former NBA player Khalid El-Amin. However his family’s culinary talent stacks up equally to his on-court prowess. For 20 years, the El-Amin family has owned and operated El-Amin Fish House, a take-out-style eatery where fillets of fresh catfish, perch, and whiting chill on ice before they're baked or fried in cholesterol-free cooking oil. The flaky fillets pair well with sides such as fried okra, candied yams, and cornmeal hushpuppies to dunk in tartar sauce or roll into peppershakers like miniature bowling balls. For dessert, diners choose from housemade sweets such as pineapple-peach cobbler or bean pies that, according to the El-Amins, are "world-famous."

Customer Reviews

The food was very good, but if you are looking for ambience...forget it! This is a very small family-owned business, very popular for take-out. The surrounding area may give pause, but we felt safe while we eat in. If you judge at a glance, you may be disappointed, but take a chance! It was definitely worth it!
