chili cheese fries

9 Jan

I, Paulina, am a chili cheese fry connoisseur. Yes, I fully recognize that this isn’t a food expertise I should vaunt. Believe me when I say I would rather have a discerning palate for cheese, be able to pick up subtle fruity notes in wine, or possess an exhaustive knowledge of espresso techniques.

But for better or for worse, I have fallen in love with an item rooted firmly in the carny food group, flanked by other standard American delicacies such as corn dogs, root beer floats, and deep-fried Oreos.

Anyway, this was all just a long way of introduction to my chili cheese fry document, which is hosted at Google Docs. Should you also have a penchant for the food, this should be a helpful resource to you as it includes prices and a brief review. It’s also color coded: black denotes acceptable; gray, unacceptable; red, good; blue, untried; green, pending.

The list is pretty near completion, though I leave out options that no longer exist (e.g., Jack in the Box, Burrito Kingdom). I omit cheddar bacon fries, poutine, carne asada fries, and other second cousins to the chili cheese fry.

I welcome comments, and especially welcome recommendations.

I leave you with a few CCF photos:
