My husband and I love Captain Porky's. Dino, the owner, is a friendly, funny man who always has great stories for his customers, and even better food for them. Walk in and you feel very welcome. My husband lived in Louisiana for a while; he gets the alligator or catfish most of time, and he says it's great. I usually get some of Dino's fantastic chicken. It has a smoky grilled flavor that never fails to please. The hot barbecue sauce is hot but not so much so that all I taste is heat -- it has a wonderful flavor. Side dishes, particularly the cole slaw, are good. My husband buys his fresh seafood there. He got his parents hooked on Dino's perch filets. They're his dad's birthday present now.

Dino also sells fresh free range chicken eggs from his farm and absolutely delicious olive oil from his groves in Greece. Both of these things alone are worth the trip.

The only concern is for those with fish or shellfish allergies like me. Seafood is constantly being cooked there, and the ice case with the fresh seafood lets out aromas. I usually can't stay inside for more than 5 minutes without having my allergies start to act up. That's a small problem, at least for me. If your allergies are dangerous, though, you probably want to send a friend in for your food.

We go to Captain Porky's regularly, and we've never had a bad experience. We can't recommend it highly enough. One more thing: Try Dino's mama's baclava. It's absolutely incredible!!!

Recently tried for the first time. As a resident of Kenosha, I never knew about this place. Contrary to the previous review, I never smelled anything except great food. The place is tiny, it's a carry-out, though the fresh fried lake perch I ordered was second to none. I'm going to become a regular as we have no seafood places like this in Kenosha or for that matter Racine since Holmann's stopped serving to the public a few years ago. This was some great eating. I'm going back for more.

This is the place to go for fresh meats and fishes! Though it might be a little stinky and it's a little run down, they still supply some of the greatest product in the area. The people there are also very helpful and can help you come up with ideas for meals, not down to the recipe, but for which meat you might want and how much you might need.
