What’s not to love about melty cheese on a pile of fried potatoes? If your favorite plate of messy fries didn’t make the list, tell me about it. I’m determined to eat my way through every morsel of cheesy fried goodness that our city has to offer.

Loaded Feta Fries. Feta and fries go together like birds of a feather. And you can quote me on that.

Carne Asada Fries. Tender carne asada, jalapeños and pico de gallo.

Short Rib Polenta Poutine. OK, idk if polenta fries are technically fries, but anything covered in gravy and cheese curds is a win in my book.

Street Cart Fries. Garlic aioli, olives, pepperoncini and green peppers. I love getting the combo mix of regular fries and sweet potato waffle fries, but you really can’t go wrong here.

K-pop Fries. Braised beef, kimchi, pickled red onions and gochu-mayo (Korean chili pepper mayo). The combination of flavors is heavenly.

Where are your favorite cheese fries?
