Fish fry is back at the American Memorial Serb Hall, 5101 W. Oklahoma Ave.

Beginning Friday, Feb. 17, guests can once again enjoy one of the city’s most notable fish frys, which will be available for dine-in at the historic President’s Hall or take-out via their drive-thru and carry-out window (first-come, first served).
