    Luckily i got along with management---even the ones who were labelled as "evil"... i've always been that way though. for all my raging introvertedness, i did my best.
    Oh, lordy, that beats me -- the only 666 I encountered was when someone's order total came to $6.66. Still freaked me out every time, though.

    ETA: Just saw a Checkers commercial for loaded fries with cheese and BACON!!! There's actually 3 ways you can have them: with chili, with cheese, Ranch, and bacon, or just with cheese and bacon, but BACON, Y'ALL!!!

      Same here.

      If Im having fried fish I put malt vinegar on it. Shrimp might get a dip into some cocktail sauce

        thick cut fries are yummy with tartar sauce or mayonnaise, i'm surprised nobody else has mentioned that. the big fries tend to be mealy though... i prefer shoestring.

        i love to get a "Fisherman's Plate" which is usually a combination of seafood (clams, scallops, haddock, Maine shrimp) deep fried and served with lemon and tartar sauce. i never use the tartar on the seafood, only the fries, a little lemon squeeze on the shrimp is fine, but the rest i like "neat".
        I like tartar for my fries but oh boy do I ever love tartar for my fish.and alot of it. I love halibut fish and chips in a beer batter.They are hard to find where I live.

          There's a place called Red Robin in the Twin Cities that has the best fries I have ever tasted. They are the thick cut steak fries, and they use this special seasoning that when paired with a little ketchup makes my taste buds do a happy little jig haha.

          By the way, it's "ketchup", not "catsup"

                I'm a simple person when it comes to fries. Hot, crispy, salted and ketchup optional. My favorite restaurant to get fries at is Superdawg located here in the Chicago area. Their fries are consistent, never mushy or underdone. Put those with a good Superdawg and you have a meal! Also rated "One of the Places to Visit Before You Die"; or maybe before the rapture?

                For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; the flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land; the fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.

                  Ah yes, french fries. I like them all, as long as they aren't soggy, the curly variety is my recent favorite.

                  The very best fries I've ever had were my Mom's homemade fries, made from white potatoes from Dad's garden, deep fried in Crisco. Don't know if the secret was the white potatoes, the Crisco, or the Love my Mom put into making them, but they were awesome.

                      There's a Red Robin in Wasilla and Anchorage so when I'm down that way I'll eat there sometimes. I do like those steak fries. I match them with their bacon cheeseburger.

                          I love steak fries with ketchup. And salty hot Mickey D's fries.
                          Sometimes I like a soggy steak fry. So if I am making them myself, I cut them different sizes and bake them. That way I get some perfect, some soggy and some 'burnt'. We fight over the little burnt bits.

                            Aioli sauce

                            Been waiting for someone to mention Aioli sauce but guess it's not going to happen so I'll jump in.

                            We have an outlet here at our shopping malls called "Fit Chips" which sells chips (bit fatter and bigger than fries) that are 'air baked' after initial fry I think. This makes them less greasy and lower in fat but crisp on the outside and mushy inside. YUM They offer a variety of tubs of sauce but ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh the aioli. This is basically a traditional sauce (French I think) made with crushed garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, egg yolk and salt. It is really TDF.

                            My four yearold grandson's absolute favourite, even over tomato sauce (ketchup).

                            Out for dinner last night at a tavern/cafe type eatery and they serve wonderful beer batter chips. Had to sneak 4 from my husband because I'm not eating carbs at the moment. Talk about bad planning!!
