Horace & Dickies Seafood Carryout, 809 12th Sreet NE, Washington, DC, 202-397-6040 (Metro Trip Planner – opens in new window) [Washingtonian | The Hilltop | openlist] There is another branch on Martin Luther King Ave., somewhere.
The best fried fish in the area, a must. Amazing atmosphere, take-out only, bad neighborhood, get the picture? Fish, fish, fish. That’s all they have. And it is fried, fried, fried. You may not go often, due to the associated inconveniences, but a gem. They also have great fries, collard greens, potato salad. Crab cake surprisingly decent. Go, go, go.

Horace & Dickies Seafood Carryout has changed its phone number to (202) 397-6040. The lady with the old number would appreciate the correction. Well, I’m headed there now!
Ok, so I called Horace and Dickie’s Seafood and there is no location on Martin Luther King Ave.
Just a little note for all those people who have wandered by there.
This was exactly what I wanted. Old-school fried fish on white bread. The portions are huge and the price is cheap. Make sure you get some hot sauce on the side for dipping.
I would skip the sides, though. The cole slaw I had was flavorless and the green beans come from a can.
