PURPLE. POTATO. FRIES.
This popular L.A. food truck is responsible for the greatest marriage of our time: waffle fries and nachos. Try the Green Dragon wachoes, which comes with an eponymous sauce, guacamole, scallions and ranch (pictured), or the Buffalo wachos, which come tossed in diablo or angel sauce with bleu cheese, bacon, scallions and ranch.

If you crave variety, you’ll love Boise Fry Company’s staggering selection of fry options. Consumers can choose between russet, purple, gold, sweet, okinawa and yam potatoes, and order them shoestring, regular, homestyle, tater tots or curly. And then there are the sauces: blueberry ketchup, marshmallow, cinnamon ginger, vanilla, and jalapeño are just a few. WHAT.

The Kennywood theme park is home to roller coasters, water rides and Potato Patch, one of the most famous fries joints in America. (It’s even allegedly won an award for Best Potato at an Amusement Park.) You can get your fries smothered in cheddar cheese and gravy, and of course, a veritable truckload of bacon.

Saus’ legendary frites come with sauces like bacon parm, “Saturday Night Chive,” and cheddar Duvel. (You can also order non-frites items like hot dogs and sandwiches, but why would you?)

Any place that lets you order fries by the pound ($15 per, BTW) is a friend indeed. Hopcat’s legendary crack fries were the subject of a recent Detroit Free Press article, in which one resident dsecribed them as like “the best salt and cracked pepper potato chip you’ve ever had, and imagine it’s beer battered and its crisp and hot.”

Ready for some word porn? Chi’lantro, both a restaurant and a roaming food truck, serves up a “mount of crispy fries topped with caramelized kimchi, cheddar + monterey jack, cilantro, onions, magic sauce, sriracha, sesame seeds.” DEAD.

Its name may sound like it should be a data analysis firm, but Colorado’s Common-Link truck serves up some famous poutine. You can order the traditional Canadian version, or a vegetarian version that comes with goat cheese sauce and a balsamic reduction drizzle.

If you like the idea of warm brie fondue dripped over hot salty fries, you’re going to want to make Baie Rouge’s New Orleans your… bae.

Danny Meyer’s fast-growing burger chain has become just as renowned for its crinkle fries as its custard and cheeseburgers. Shake Shack switched out some of its chains’ crinkles for a handcut Russet potato fry in 2014, but public outcry swiftly brought back the crinkle.
Suggested by the entire city of New York.
Chicago’s famous hot dog chain also cranks out some tasty crinkle-cuts. Try them with cheese sauce because obviously.
