So many choices...

Regardless if it's traditional French fries, waffle fries, seasoned fries, crinkle cut, curly, shoe string, sweet potato, steak fries, debris fries or any other kind of French fries... people love fries!

So, where are the best fries in town?

We asked listeners this morning for What to Eat Tuesday on the Early Edition of WWL First News.

We got dozens and dozens of text messages to 870870 with people's favorites.

Some version of fries in roast beef gravy got a lot of votes.  Some places call them debris fries, others fries and gravy or some other similar name.  We had about 15 different places suggested for those.

The restaurant that got the most texts was Rally's.  McDonald's came in second.  Five Guys was third.

We learned from WWL TV Meteorologist Dave Nussbaum that you can buy Rally's fries at the grocery store.  He got some at Rouses and baked them.  He said they were fantastic.

WWL News Anchor David Blake voted for the endless fries at Red Robin.

I couldn't narrow it down to one of several places I love for fries swimming in roast beef gravy with sour cream, cheese and chives.  I've had great ones at Randazzo's, City Diner and Koz's.
