Loaded Fries

There are several toppings to choose from, with a generous amount of toppings in each portion.

You could try the Bayou Fries (shrimp and crawfish etouffee with shredded cheese and green onions) if you’re in the mood for seafood. We’d also recommend the Philly Fries: 

  • thinly sliced steak,
  •  sauteed with bell peppers and onions, 
  • onions, 
  • provolone cheese, 
  • cheddar cheese sauce with ranchero aioli and parsley

If you want real comfort food, you could go for the buffalo chicken tender fries. Loaded with buffalo chicken, tossed in buffalo sauce, and topped with shredded cheese, ranch dressing, bacon, and parsley is a real treat if you need a pick-me-up.

There’s a vegan option too. Try the ‘Vegan Big Tex’ fries, topped with BBQ jackfruit, vegan BBQ sauce, vegan shredded cheese, and green onions.

If you don’t want the loaded fries, you can go for plain fries instead. You can choose from seasoned or plain. Both are delicious!

The portions are generous and filling, and it’s affordable too—a nice reward at the end of a long week when you don’t feel like cooking.
