Arbys French Fries circa 1970-1985?
Sun, 09/4/11 1:17 PM
We had an Arby's restaurant near where I grew up in the Landmark area of Northern Virginia. The local Wash DC area Arbys of the time (from the 1970's up to the mid 80's) used to serve great french fries. As I recall, they weren't so much of a "sliced" potato pushed through a standard fry slicer as much as they seemed like a mashed, or pulverized potato shoestring french fry product? They had very thin, golden brown, crunchy coating too. They were so good. For some reason Arbys stopped selling these fries in the mid 80's and I was so disappointed.
I am reaching out to anyone that even remembers these fries? Any links to discussions? What were they? How were they done? Was that a regional thing or national at all of the Arby's back in the day? Are they available anyplace today?
Was that just a dream I had? haha Any help appreciated.
