Week four of fish fry season found us venturing to Immaculate Heart of Mary in Burlington, Ky. Recommended by our friend James, a parishioner of the church, IHM had been on our must-try list for two years and it was time to check it out.  

Quite possibly the furthest we’ve ever traveled for a fish fry, it took around 40 minutes during Friday rush hour to reach Burlington from downtown after work. The church was easy to find: A straight shot down I-75 then turn right off Exit 181. A short distance later and we arrived in the huge parking lot.

You may be wondering, “Why travel so far for a fish fry?”
