Todays' cowgirl frito pie Fri, 05/25/07 11:33 AM (permalink)
So check out RF Restaurant of the Day: Cowgirls Hall of Fame

Actually I "relate" to this restaurant: There's only 2 branches (that I know of) in NYC and in Santa Fe. I think when my daughter was in nursery school, one of the other parents owned the place(s)

So they are featuring Frito Pies, which (I think) began at the Woolworth's at Santa Fe Plaza. When my daughter went to school in Santa Fe her favorite school cafeteria lunch was Frito Pie. Nice to see an East Coast offering - right from the bag!

    I'm not quite Wandering Jew on this one, but I just don't see how taking something so far out of the region qualifies as Roadfood. More like Disneyland food.
    This almost qualifies for my Place names ban against invoking "other" regional places for your restaurant.

        It is Frito Pie, not Fritos Pie.

          I've been eating Fritos pie since the early 1950s. Some folks call it Frito pie, others call it Fritos pie. Regardless, it's still the same, and using Wikipedia as a source is not a really terrific idea. Anyone can post anything there, regardless of fact.

              They make a very good margarita, as well as a pretty decent hamburger with guacamole on top.

                Sorry to be a party pooper, but that thing looks yucky. Of course it is not genuine Mexican food, but I would rather have the real thing!

                  $11.00 for the bag of Authentic Southwestern Fritos, and $1.00 for the Chili inside.
                  Cheese extra.

                    Don't get mad at me but if we follow that logic wouldn't it also be, Strawberrys Pie or Lemons Pie or Apples Pie etc.

                      Well, considering that they use something named Fritos, not Frito, I'd guess not.

                        Yes but Fritos is plural for whats in the bag and not for the chip. The chip as an individual is a Frito much as on one piece of fruit in a bushel of apples is an apple. You would not buy a lb of apple unless it is processed in some way like apple juice or apple puree.

                          I sure hope someone gets to the grammatical bottom of this pressing issue soon. It's a holiday weekend and all...

                          The official Fritos.com website is labeled as "Frito's" on my web browser, which would make Frito pie a correct interpretation. Hmmm. With the apostrophe, these are the corn chips belonging to Frito? But the pie is not his (nor is it actually a pie) so I'm going with Frito pie, which is what I've always called it although I suppose it should be called corn chip pie ala Frito. Can someone confirm there might have originally been an apostrophe that was dropped from Frito's or Fritos?



                          $12 for Frito pie in NY,NY? Doesn't a 1oz bag alone cost that much there?

                          - Doesn't look like any apostrophe but the company was called the Frito Company. just one Frito at a time I guess. And, this is their 75th anniversary so I know how I'm celebrating. And, my Frito pie is going to cost much less than $12.

                            It's Frito-Lay. But, there's no apostrophe on the bag. It says Fritos. And not that I really give a rat's patoot, but the Frito pie fanciers really ought to get after Mr.Stern. He's the one who keeps calling it a Fritos pie. And I'll go along with what he says.

                              I'm with you Judge, That looks like something a Jr Hi Kid would do with his lunch to gross-out a girlfriend!

                              I would not order it , and would probably stop one of my grandchildren to make the "dish"

                                      Stern's write up on this site says "Fritos" multiple times.

                                      The website of the Cowgirls Hall of Fame Restaurant, however, calls it Frito® Pie.

                                      It really doesn't matter though. If you say Fritos Pie or Frito Pie, you'll be served the same thing, I'm sure.

                                            I'm well aware of how it is referred to in today's review. Only pointing out the Sterns also called it Frito pie multiple times in Roadfood.

                                              Please note that somewhere along the way in this thread I said some call it Fritos pie and some call it Frito pie. I personally don't care what people call it. I was the one who was told that I was wrong for referring to it as Fritos pie.

                                                Actually, I think this whole thing is hysterical because I am sure that Honeyward or Honeywad is a long time poster in disguise

                                                  The real discussion should be about eating Frito(s) pie. I like it. Starts out crunchy, then the fritos get sort of mushy. Of course you need a passable chili to start and fresh onions and peppers to put on top. The pictures don't do it justice. It is one of the ultimate street foods. I became aware of and walked up to the window at Woolworths in Sante Fe thanks to the Sterns and their Goodfood and owe them a debt of gratitude.

                                                    No ala mode on this pie please!

                                                    I've eaten this treat in lots of places but no one ever charged close to twelve simoleons and why does that look like broiled cheese?

                                                    You think onions, jalapenos and sour cream were extra? I suppose it may well be that if I asked how much extra were the extras, I couldn't afford them!

                                                      We've always called it a "Frito Boat" for some reason...we love em.. I've attended dinner parties where a giant "Frito Boat" was the featured attraction..

                                                          here in south texas i've always heard it called Frito Pie or chili pie. I LOVE it! I hardly make it because I don't make homemade chili and canned chili like Wolf's brand is nasty, so I usually just order it at a burger place or some kind of place like that. And of course it's not genuine Mexican food, but I wonder what the "real thing" is though??

                                                            No one said anyone was wrong or right. That is why I started my thread "Don't get mad". I was only pointing our what I thought was a grammetical error.

                                                            The picture on the review is not a good representation. A good Corn Chip and Chili pie has Corn Chips, grated chesse, diced onion, diced tomatoe, jalapeno slices and sour cream. This picture in the review of the 66 Diner in Abuquerque is a better sample.
