What do you like on your French fries.

I like them a lot of ways.

Dutch style: with curry sauce, mayonaise and raw onions.

Irish style: with salt and vinegar.

With cheese sauce.

With garlic sauce.

With hot curry sauce.

Anybody got any other ways of serving them?

Mostly Hellmann's mayonnaise and sometimes with ketchup.

I really want my fries to be crispy. They should make noise when you bite into them. That's why I don't like a lot of other stuff (cheese sauce, chili, etc) on them. But that's just me.

In New Mexico some people like them smothered in Green or Red Chili and cheese.

That's how my wife likes them, but I prefer just salt and ketchup.

I'm not a huge French fry eater, even though my middle name IS "potatoes." I like mine same as YT, but with a little less salt.

If they're really good fries (I like McDonald's and Hardee's best), I want salt only.
I usually put a little catsup on the rest.
