>restaurant has burgers on the menu
>offers chips instead of fries
I don't get this. I've been to several places where this is the case. Does offering chips instead of fries elevate them to being more trendy? I understand if you're getting a sandwich, but if I'm buying a burger, I want my fucking fries.
>"Replace chips for french fries for an additional $2"
I saw this at a fucking sports bar
A little bag of chips is practically free to restaurants. Fries require maintaining the oil, a proper hood for ventilation and in some place require the person to be over 18 to operate.
I worked at a restaurant and you had to pay extra for fries, but a bag of chips would come with the burger.
The only time it was justified in my eyes was when the restaurant made their own chips in-house. They were a lot thicker than regular bag chips. But otherwise, yeah. Give me fries instead of weak ass chips.
OP here. Yeah I worked at a fast food place when I was in HS and handling the oil/maintaining the fryer was a pain in the ass.
What I'm talking about are "sit down" restaurants, where the kettle chips are served next to the burgers and not already in a bag. I hope the bag of chips wasn't opened prior to being served?
Then again, chips=1 potato(?) whereas fries require 2?
I went to a place recently that had homemade chips (still hot when served) but what confused me was the little side of ketchup that came with it. Do people really dip their chips in ketchup?
Yeah its odd that ketchup with fries is fine in my book, but chips are a no-go.
>not exclusively eating food that gives you gas so you can dutch oven yourself later
There is this new bar where I live that serves chips with burgers instead of fries. It pisses a lot of people off because their burgers are waaay overpriced as it is. Fries are +$3 and side salad is +$5 substituted.
Chips are fucking disgusting anyways.

>BUT IT'S HOME MADE KETTLECORN
no, it's burnt salty grease delivery machines.
