Sprinkle some quality romano or parmesan cheese and a dash of garlic powder on your fries for some good eating.

In some seafood places along both sides of Chesapeake Bay, Old Bay seasoning is used on French fries. The result is pretty good and I enjoy them like this.

I like to salt my fries the moment they come out of the oil. For a different taste sensation, I sometimes pepper them when they're still wet from the hot oil. Fresh ground pepper, finely grated.

If I ever find myself in a hotbed of fries and gravy, I'll sure try an order.

In the Midwest it's Chili and Cheese on Fries.
Also my daughters and their friends dip their fries in chocolate milk shake. I haven't tried it yet...but they know I will. They grew up with the suggestion to "just try it"...a good suggestion, I think, for all "roadies".

Best fries I ever ate: In Mons, Belgium, freshly cooked spuds, served up in a cone, with Sauce Americaine (kind of a spicy, red, tartar sauce ) ohhhhhhhhh soooooooooooooooo good.

Cheesefries are big in the Philly area. It's an offshoot of cheesesteaks. The same cheesewhiz that is used on some cheesesteaks is poured over fries.
I like cheesefries with old bay seasoning which is known as spicy cheesefries here. In local diners, gravy is a popular topping for fries.

Here in Rhode Island, Malt Vinegar is the condimemnt of choice. Of couse when I was living in Pittsburgh, french fries were added to Salads and were also put inside sandwiches. While I was living in Seattle, fries were dipped in tartar sauce.

There's a great little pub here in CT that lists "Soggy Fries" on the menu....shoestrings SOAKED in a rich brown gravy and then covered with melted cheddar. They should accompany that dish with a coupon for an angioplasty.
One of my personal favorites for my fries is a mixture of ketchup and yellow mustard. I get weird looks for that. (Though I get even weirder looks when I ask for sauerkraut on my cheeseburgers!)

I love fries with gravy. However, when I eat out or prepare myself, shrimp scampi, I make a lot of sauce;i.e. butter, olive oil and garlic infused. Dipping fries into this is truly heaven.

Oh yes! Steak Salad! Fries and the sliced steak on top of the salad! Those are good. Fries on the sandwich: Primanti's in the strip district? Haven't had that stuff in ages!

Some places call fries with cheese and gravy "Disco Fries".
In northern New Hampshire and Canada they are called "Poutine"

Most all of the above sound good to me...but serve them "dry" and salted then put the "goo" in a cup on the side and let me play with them while dipping. The Sheep dip at Moonlite..A vinegar based dipping sauce for Mutton works great with hot frys also. For you guys who like the Malt Vinegar, this sauce would be outstanding.
BTW, ditto all of the above with some big thick sliced Sweet fried Onion Rings !

I first sampled poutine in Nova Scotia, then PEI and then again in New Brunswick. I am not sure I had ever thought of the idea but it was good.

The fries I got in Quebec were somehow different than the US ones. They reminded of of the frites I got in Europe. It is either a different potato or a different oil. In my opinion they werre far tastier.

I love steak salad. We put it on the menu on this place I worked at in Ohio, and the only people who ever ordered it were from Pittsburgh.

Only folks from Pittsburgh and France would put potatoes on a salad and think it was yummy. Salad nicoise, after all, does have potatoes on it and I adore it. In the summer I make a nice composed salad of grilled shrimp (or whatever, chicken, etc.), grilled par-boiled potato slices, grilled tomatoes, asparagus, peppers and whatever else I can throw on. Put all that on a nice fresh bowl of greens picked from the garden, generously sprinkle with gorgonzola, blue, or whatever cheese you like, top with champagne vinaigrette. French fries could be equally substituted on the above salad.......but since the grill is already fired up.........

I've always eaten fries with ketchup, but my favorite fries were covered with mayo and eaten on the streets of Amsterdam served in a cone, purchased from a street vendor. Poochies in Skokie has excellent fries topped with Merkt's cheddar cheese.

There used to be a hamburger place in Austin by the name of 2-J's . Their basic burger was meat and bun, pickle with a dollop of this orange sauce that was a mixture of ketchup and mustard. They've been out of business for about 15 years, but I can still taste that mixture! Never could duplicate it for some reason...
Thanks for the memory, now back to fries...

I too love fries with mayo, but my absolute favorite fry dips are au jus or alfredo sauce.

Ohhh Yeah!
It had a bit of tang to it as I recall. The mustard must of had an extra shot of vinagar.
My mom would try to duplicate it when I was a kid, but she never got the combination right, bless her heart.

Not being much of a ketchup fan, if I put anything on fries, it is just salt and pepper and sometimes a hearty splash of Tabasco. If there is a good homemade or European-style mayo, I'll dip the fries in that (a habit formed in the Netherlands). That chipotle mayo sounds quite tempting, though.

Usually I prefer mine naked and wanting......salt that is, but I have been known to dash on some vinegar, or dip them in a blue cheese and ranch style dip. I also hoard the Southwestern dips from Arbys, for my frnech fry pleasure. Old bay is a treat once in awhile too. What I do NOT like are those pre-seasoned fries like Curly fries, LongBranch , Fajita fries.......blech and blechier

What is it with those Curly fries? And where are the Moe and Larry varieties?

I like to sop up all the juice from my homemade buffalo wings with fries...and the blue cheese goes well with that combination. If i dont have the wings, i use good old fashioned ketchup. sometimes a nice ranch. Kens usually.

I love gravy fries but I have yet to find a place in central Ohio that has them. I discovered them in Erie, PA on an after bar stop at a place (the name of which escapes me) for a meatball omlette and the fries. So far, I have only found them there and at a place in North Carolina. My roommate was from Erie (not far from Pittsburgh) so he introduced me to fries on sandwiches, salads, anything really. As someone mentioned earlier, around the midwest, mostly what you can find is chili cheese fries. I particularly liked the ones at Camp Washington in Cincinnati.

When eating crabs here near the chesapeake bay we make a dip from crab spice, salt, and vinegar (these are usually on the table with small plastic dipping cups to mix it to your taste)and this is great for dipping fries too! My wife makes a pretty mean Salisbury steak W/brown gravy, fries on the side covered with the gravy is killer!

My favorite was a recipe for `augmented' ketchup I got in Bon Appetit - not sure of the proportions but it was ketchup blended with roasted ground cumin seed, lime juice, chipotles in adobo, and a little tequila. Killer!

I stole this idea from Pomme Frites in NYC (Belgian-style twice frieds served in paper cones), but it's really good. I mix mayonnaise with mustard and a little honey. The result? Honey-mustard mayo. Equally good on chicken (or un-chicken, as I've been eating lately.)

What i have on my fries depends on what I am eating

I like ranch dressing on my fries when I have Hot Wings

With Beef I just soak up the beef juices or gravy if it is available

At Mickey D's I'll get a side of barbeque or sweet and sour sauce for my fries. Of course, thay are goos unadorned as well.

Bottom line, I find myself using ketchup on my fries less and less these days.

This may seem a little far out but when I visit Captain D's, I dip my fries in their vinegar. In addition I dip them in the tartar sauce.

Just as a side, Captain D's has great fries.

I second the use of Old Bay on fries. It is also excellent on popcorn.

But, I also like Garam Masala and sea salt. Garam Masala is an essential Northern Indian cuisine spice blend that often includes cumin, coriander, cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, black pepper and Indian bay leaves among others.

This possibly strays a bit from the usual connotation of "topping," but I used to get french fries with a vanilla milkshake and dip the fries into the shake. Surprisingly delicious. With a chocolate or strawberry shake, not so good.

Whoops, I missed the earlier post about fries + chocolate milkshake. I still think vanilla is the way to go.
But I definitely second the "dont' knock it till you've tried it" opinion.

This is not so different from the commercially successful pretzel and ice cream combos like pretzel ice cream cones and Ben & Jerry's Chubby Hubby.

Except that whereas pretzels + ice cream = salt + cream + sugar,
fries + milkshake/ice cream = salt + *grease* + cream + sugar - all the better!

MMMmmmm, fries fresh out of the hot oil! And I haven't had breakfast yet...

My fave is white vinegar and salt, but I'm Canadian.

My introduction to poutine was when I was seventeen, and went on an exchange trip to Sherbrooke, Quebec. My exchange partner described it as french fries with barbecue sauce and cheese curds. "This," I thought, "is going to be delicious!!" We went to the local Woolworth's cafeteria and Olaf bought some for us to try. I was disappointed, because it's not BBQ sauce, it's brown gravy. (I knew I shouldn't have trusted him because, earlier, he told me that he was making "creeps" for dinner! He meant crepes.)

Many Americans ask me about poutine. It's mostly a Quebecois thing, but you can get it outside the province. Last summer I discovered that some locations of Harvey's (a fast-food hamburger chain in Ontario) carry poutine.

Thank you all for so many good suggestions.

And ice tea. Sometimes I stop at Captain D's just for a glass of sweet tea. As for fries toppings, I picked up the habit dripping them in mayo from ordering frites in Belgium at those street stands. Has anyone tried the wasobi mayo thats in the stores now?

Back in the days when I still ate at Mickey D's, I used to get an order of fries and a butterscotch (or may have been caramel) sundae. I would dip the fries in the sweet gooey butterscotch topping. There was nothing quite like the combination of hot, salty and greasy fries with the cool, sweet topping... Not sure if I would still like it, but I did at the time!

You can find poutine in Northern New England. Specifically Northern Vermont, New Hampshire and Inland Maine.

Poutine seems to be a staple in Nova Scotia, PEI and New Brunswick. It seemed that every restaurant I stopped at featured fries and gravy.

Sounded pretty good to me so I bought it, liked it and ordered some more.

It seemed to be a breakfast thing also.

Thanks for the welcome, clothier. Sorry the formula made your head hurt (would that have been like an ice cream headache?)

I should have given the formula in its reduced form:
fries - pretzels = grease = yum

I love french fries with vinegar ... there's nothing like it!! Especially when you are strolling down the boardwalk at the beach eating actual "boardwalk fries" with vinegar. Mmmmm. I also love cheese fries and dipping my fries in leftover wing sauce :)

Chile cheese fries here in New Mexico. Red or Green Chile sauce. I of course prefer green :) Ketchup standard and tarter sauce if I'm having fish. I still can't get over this gravy fries thing, but won't knock it since I haven't tried it...yet.

Texas Pete (hot sauce) and salt.

Also while visiting friends in Utah we had lunch at a diner and the ff's were very good and served with a cup of "Fry Sauce" I was told it was a mixture of catchup, mustard and (Hellman's) mayonnaise.

For Chili Cheese Fries nothing beats Tommy's.. My own personal fave fry topping is Frite Saus (I buy it from a German grocery online..it's amazing) or a combo of ranch and ketchup..separate,but together.

Callahan's (Irish Pub) 1027 South Main St., Cheshire, CT (203) 271- 1993.
They also offer an Irish Dinner (I forget exactly it's title on the menu), but it's a baked potato and a 6 pack of beer! Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone!!

I like to dip my fries in sweet and sour sauce. My brother has a strange habit that started when he was little, he dips his fries in orange soda.

Mmmmm, poutine. It hasn't gotten to the Midwest yet, but I'm waiting...in the meantime, malt vinegar and salt, or curry sauce are good. Or chipotle mayo. Seems like hardly anyone uses just ketchup anymore. Frank's Hot Sauce is good, too.

Arctic Circle, a nasty burger chain out of Salt Lake City has their (in)famous "fry sauce" -- a sweetish mix of tomato catsup and mayo. Still going strong there.
