Fries were first made in 17th-century Belgium to supplement fried fish. Everyone loved them. They then toured globally under various pseudonyms, i.e. pommes frites, patatas fritas, chips and freedom fries. They met chili and melted cheese. They made people fat. And now they have a day.

French fries, fries, fried potatoes, frites, .. are my weakness. I could easily eat plates and plates. Thanks to restaurants and trailers who have revamped the traditional french fry, I can never look at a McDonald, Sonic, Burger King, ect.. fry the same again. And scoot aside prepackaged ketchup, give me some of that garlic aioli.
Check out these restaurants and trailers who are serving up gourmet fries.
