Had some last night for dinner, since Hardee's gave me more fries for lunch than I could
handle, & combined those with some leftover gravy from earlier in the week!

I grew up in the Catskill Mts in upstate NY and never saw them there. My first time was a greasy spoon alongside a Honky Tonk off Ft. Meade, MD, in 1961.  Went there to sober up before RTB.

here in town in a couple of places you have to remind them to leave the gravy off your fries.
 oh ICK.

I really dont care for fries for the most part, but I will eat fries  with Lawreys salt and malt vinegar when I can find a Big Boy..

Cheese fries and gravy is late night staple at the Budd Lake Diner in Budd Lake NJ. Delicious. If not gravy then chili cheese. Either works for me.

I am not a big gravy person, other than that with Biscuits and Gravy, so I think I would probably pass on it. I prefer the traditional ketchup or I have started to get into using BBQ sauce.

Surly somewhere in the last 5 pages I would have posted that I love gravy on my fries. A favorite "diner" meal was, hot open roast beef sandwich with gravy covering the roast beef AND the fries!

I admit to not having read all 5 pages of this thread, but for me, fries and gravy was the signature menu item of a true greasy spoon called the "Mountain City Diner" in Frackville, PA.  This place is a few blocks north of the "Dutch Kitchen" in Frackville, which I know has been referenced here more than once.  The fries and gravy were fine, especially after a night of mass quantities of Pottsville Punch (Yuengling), but nothing to write home about.  Just a good treat once in awhile for me. 

The Mt. City Diner was on Rt 61, just a little north (west on the compass) of Rt. 924 in the center of Frackville.  I have no idea if the place is still in business or not.  If they are, I imagine they're still open till the wee smalls and serving up the fries and gravy to the flock of devotees (there are many).

It's the idea of putting gravy on French fries.
Disgusting, to say the least.


Michael,
Don't knock until you try it! I grew up in Western PA and Fries & Gravy were a standard at every restaurant in our town. We called them "A Drunk's Delight"! Fries & Gravy take on an added flavor after Midnight!
My late night favorite was an open-faced Hot Roast beef sandwich, (on white bread) & a pile of French Fries, both smothered in Beef Gravy

Only Closed Minded People knock something before trying it. Open Minded People try anything and everything because they are free spirited, gregarious, fun loving and adventuresome with a devil may care attitude. Grumpy People like someone we know doesn't fit this catagory!

Are you insinuating that our Michael (our unofficial RoadFood curmudgeon) is, closed minded?
Where would you have gotten that idea from?

Dog Boss,
 
I've lived in 3 places in Ohio AND in Sparta, NJ, (Lake Mohawk) and I can report it's not an "OH Thing", It's an EX-Wife Thing!

While traveling through India, i came across this quaint little joint in New Delhi that served French Fries with thick curry sauce. I want to go back just to have that again.

Stopped one late night for a burger and fries (with gravy), but they had shut down the fryer for the night. The waitress suggested trying a couple of pancakes with gravy. Delicious and I have been eating them that way ever since.

Think about it ----Pancakes are in the same general family as Biscuits and no one blinks an eye at "Biscuits & Gravy".
"Pancakes & Gravy" is a natural offspring of "Biscuits & Gravy"! Add Sausage and/or Bacon to the Gravy and it makes it even more better gooder.
 
BETTER YET-------
 
Plop a couple of Over Easy Eggs in between Two Pancakes (Pancake & Egg Sandwich) and cover with Sausage, Bacon or Ham Gravy and you have a Breakfast/Brunch/Lunch/Dinner Feast fit for a King! - or Queen, or Duke, or Dutchess, or--- Joe the Plumber!
If I owned a comfort food restaurant or a Breakfast place, this would be my Signature Item!!!
I LOVE those "Breakfast Served Anytime" places. (Think Waffle House).
 
OMG____ That just triggered another creative thought----

Waffles,covered, smothered Etc, Etc like all of the above---Eat your heart out Waffle House!!
