Currently the home of the best fish sandwich in the quick-service industry, Arby’s felt obliged to make things better for anyone who has accepted a square-shaped fish sandwich.

What started with Arby’s celebrating its Crispy Fish sandwich — featuring wild-caught Alaskan Pollock — through tv adssocial jabs and a trend spawned by TikTok star Nathan Evans has evolved into the brand offering a chance at a fish do-over, mailing thousands of checks for exactly $3.79.

For those unable to snag a no-strings-attached Fish Check for $3.79* at, fans can still enter for a chance to win the grand check prize of $379**, good enough for roughly 84 King’s Hawaiian® Fish Deluxe sandwiches from Arby’s. Those who enter for a chance to win the big check will also receive a coupon for a $1 Arby’s Crispy Fish Sandwich (terms and conditions apply).

The Arby’s Crispy Fish Sandwich features wild-caught Alaskan Pollock, crispy-fried to golden-brown perfection with tartar sauce and iceberg lettuce, topped with a sesame seed bun. The sandwich is available for just $2.99 or as part of the Arby’s 2/$6 Everyday Value Meal.

Arby’s King’s Hawaiian Fish Deluxe, which is available for $3.99, features an Alaskan Pollock crispy fish fillet with shredded lettuce, tartar sauce, tomatoes and cheddar cheese on a sweet and fluffy Kings Hawaiian® Bun.

Both of these limited-time sandwiches are available now through March 29.
