    The Crispy Cod Sammie and Plate are available Wednesday through Friday, Feb. 17 to April 4.

    Joella’s Hot Chicken announced it’s bringing back its popular menu item, the Crispy Cod Sammie, for a limited time only, along with a new Crispy Cod Plate option. The Louisville-based fast casual restaurant known for hot chicken and made-from-scratch Southern-style sides, announced the specialty Sammie and Plate will be available during the Lenten season at all 19 Joella’s locations in Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Ohio, and Indiana.

    Joella’s guests can order the seasonal North Atlantic Wild-Caught Cod that is double beer-battered and fried beginning Feb. 17 through April 4. The Crispy Cod Sammie and Plate can be prepared with any of Joella’s six famous heat levels including Southern (no heat), Spiked Honey, Ella’s Fav, Tweener, Hot, and Fire-In Da-Hole (so hot you need to sign a waiver!).

    The Crispy Cod Sammie is topped with Sweet Vinegar Slaw, pickles, and Bama White Dippin’ Sauce. For $9.50, guests will get the Sammie with their choice of one Southern side. And new this year, Joella’s will also offer the Crispy Cod Plate, which includes two pieces of Crispy Cod with Bama White Dippin’ Sauce on the side. The Crispy Cod Plate can be ordered with one Southern side for $10.50, or two sides for $11.50. If guests choose to order their Crispy Cod Plate spiced with a heat level, it will be served on top of a piece of white bread in traditional hot chicken plating.

    The Crispy Cod Sammie and Plate are available Wednesday through Friday, Feb. 17 to April 4. Florida locations will serve the limited-time menu items every day of the week.

    “Joella’s is excited to offer this seasonal favorite to our customers who are already in love with our award-winning hot chicken and Southern-style sides – and this year add the Crispy Cod Plate to our Lenten menu offerings,” says Christina Happel, Regional Vice President of Operations for Joella’s Hot Chicken. “The Crispy Cod Sammie and Plate are the best of both worlds: full of Joella’s signature flavor yet paired with the fixin’s associated with a traditional fish sandwich or meal.”

    Joella’s Hot Chicken currently has 19 locations nationwide: three in Florida (Largo, Melbourne, and Seminole); four in Georgia (Atlanta, Kennesaw, Newnan, and Woodstock); four in Central Indiana (Indianapolis/96th Street, Indianapolis/Broad Ripple, Carmel/Westfield, and Bloomington); three in the Louisville, Ky. area (Louisville/St. Matthews, Louisville/Middletown, and Clarksville, Ind.), two in Lexington (Lexington/UK and Lexington/Hamburg) and three in the Cincinnati area (Downtown Cincinnati, Mason, Oh., and Crescent Springs, Ky).
