I always have french fries (preferably shoestring) with gravy (kind depending on the type of..) with a Hot Roast Beef or Hot Turkey Sandwich. (Two slices of bread with gravy) I still use a little bit of ketchup.) Imagine the shock looks I get when I order fries with gravy and I live in Minnesota. They alway serve Mashed Potatoes with gravy with Hot "sandwiches".

I first encountered a US-style fish and chips restaurant about thirty years ago, and I didn't know the "rules". So I put malt vinegar on both the fish and the fries, and dipped both in the tartar sauce.

The first time I ever had gravy on french fries was is Toronto when I was 12-13. I thought is was gross. Now I love it. I never saw that before in the states. I believe that it had cheese and gravy. A lot of things were weird in Canada.

I really wish there was a place here in West Virginia with fries and gravy. I have never tasted it! I mean, I can imagine! That's why I wish I could eat some.

I can't say enough about fries with brown gravy which are a Jersey diner staple. Although no one's mentioned fries with melted mozzarella and brown gravy which I'd always thought were disco fries. That by the way is an awful name and we always refer to them as fries with cheese and gravy, and we always get them with mozzarella without even asking. Although one time at a little deli and grill in NJ I had fries with yellow cheese sauce and brown gravy and they were good too.

Just a little side note to my ramble. The first time I heard about them, I thought the combination sounded disgusting, but I ordered them and they are delicious.

Dave


Disco Fries is a popular dish favored by late night clubbers who end up at the 11th Street Diner in Miami Beach. Fries smothered in mozzarella with brown gravy on the side.



P.S. The diner was moved down here from Wilkes Barre, PA about 25 years ago.

BigGlenn,

P. S. I do something similar for my roaches... I regularly feed them (in warmer weather) a nice mixture of brown sugar and boric acid. By golly, they eat it right up, and then they don't bother me again.

Next time you're over there, have a cold Straub's (or Straub Light) and think of me... I've never tasted it on draught.
What a great brew!

Lee,
There's something locally that beats that... Allen's Hamburgers makes great, thick homemade poptato chips. I like mine a little extra brown, then practically drowned in Heinz Malt Vinegar. Luscious!! -- But I can't eat any more of 'em until I lose some more weight!

Fries and gravy can be found in a lot of places around here (central NY). It might not always be on the menu, but you can order it up easily enough. My mom used to go to a diner in our hometown when she was a teenager (50's-60's) and have fries and gravy... the diner is still there (though under different management) and you can still get them. I stop in on occasion for a burger and fries w/gravy, it's true comfort food for me.

Porcelina,

I know of a great place for Fries and gravy just outside of Wheeling, WV in a little town called Moundsville, WV.

The place is called Mitchell's Restaurant, place is a dive but the Gravy Fries are fantastic!!

Ort,

Nothing better then an ice cold Straub, pulled from the Eternal Tap at the brewery!!!

A couple buddies and I make 3 or 4 pilgrimages to St Mary's every year to ride motorcycles through Elk County and drink Straub (not at the same time of course). We always stop by and take the Brewery Tour every trip.

I don't remember seeing the diner Foodbme recommended but you but your bottom dollar I be looking for it this year!!!!!

Poutine is served in a lot of KFC's in Canada, great stuff!

When I worked at a sub shop, we made these little snackers.

One round piece of provolone cheese
One slice Krakus Polish ham
2 french fries
Dash of mayo

Roll it up, yum!

I tried my first fries with cheese and gravy at The Katahdin Inn in Millinocket, ME.
When I saw it on the menu I knew I had to have it. Wish I could get it down here in the South.

The first place I came to know fries with gravy was at The Salt City Diner, a 50's joint on Rt. 57 in Liverpool, which is now an Irish Bar. I was Freshman in High School when it opened (1986.)

IT was good stuff. It was about this time I began to open up my mind to diners, including Doc's Little Gem, the B'ville Diner and Serpico's.

I think I can almost attribute fries and gravy to my awakening and love of diners as roadfood. Although, the idea of roadfood (eating at mom and pop stands while traveling) I attribute to my parents and my early childhood travels.

Being a Canadian living in Texas, I can't find too many places that have brown gravy on their menus for fries....mostly white pepper gravy. My wife makes the fries and gravy for us at home and I even got her to try it with ketchup on them.

Over the years we have used the restaurants at truck stops as an easy stop when fuel is needed for both the vehicle and US. I usually ask for a cup of Brown Gravy with my French Fries when ordering a Burger or other entree. I like to dip the FF rather than smother or slather them with the gravy.

I think Dan's Diner is long gone. It sat right next to the Train Station in downtown St. Marys. Right next to the RR Tracks. We went there in the mid 50's. The owners son, Dan Conners, played linebacker at the Univ of Miami and was an All Pro with the Oakland Raiders.

My first exposure to FF & gravy was at a little joint in Boomtown on the perimeter of Fort Meade, MD, in 1961. Loved it then and still do. That was also my introduction to LTM on a burger, back then we did not do that in the Catskill mountains of upstate NY.

  "Wet fries," as they are known to me are served at the restaurant where I work. they are not on the menu as such but a lot of people order them with their hot roast beef sandwich. The restaurant in question is The MATSU Family Restaurant in beautiful, but cold Wasilla AK.

Fries and gravy are staples at several places here (Jxn MS), notably Fat Tuesday's (super poboys) and Cherokee (great burgers).
