    Try the crack fries; they're sweet, salty, peppery and fried to perfection. The only downside is that it's not just a name - you'll be back to have them again shortly. Guarantee. Read more

    I shouldn't have to explain this, but you need to get the Crack Fries. And yes, they are called that for a reason. Trust me.

    The crack fries are best- the mac and cheese is a little too much like Kraft to me, but many like it.
