Fish, chips, prawn chips, Cornish pasties, bikers, punks and soccer jerseys — what more could you ask of a neighborhood chipper in Denver, Colorado? Owner Alex Stokeld has done a fine job of transforming this cement bunker of a space into a down-and-dirty fish joint, with picnic tables in the dining room and beers at the bar. All of the food is excellent, but the best dish is the namesake fish and chips: sticks of flaky cod cut off the fillet, jacketed in a perfect, crisp, crumbling batter (which took Stokeld years to get right), scalded by the heat of the fryer and served in generous, greasy portions over a mound of proper, thick-cut chips fried the way chips are supposed to be fried — hard and fast, in animal fat.

Westword has it right. This is "authentic" fish and chips. Big pieces of cod (Pacific), passed through a wet and dry batter, deep-fried to perfection. My favorite, however, is the Calamari. 6-inch strips of large squid steaks with the perfect texture. I've tried the oysters (small, and not much there), and the scallops, and I'm sticking with the cod and calamari.

Great batter, but you'll have to "fish" for the cod! Place your order, and you get beautiful, crispy, flavorful, pieces of puffy batter, and hardly any FISH. We got our order, and bit into tasty morsels of . . .air. This place charges plenty for fish'n'chips, so why is there so little fish in the servings! Please, people, why so much style over substance?

How about some love to Yorkshire on Pecos. Much better than GB's.
