Where’s your favorite place to get Chili Cheese Fries? We’ve been trying a few around town and would love to know whose Chili Cheese Fries you like BEST. Some are extra good and some are just okay. We describe a few, but want you to be the judge too. Each photograph will have a brief description and related restaurant link directly below it. And we’ll be adding more Chili Cheese Fries photos and observations, so keep checking back.
The Hat’s Chili Cheese Fries with Pickles & Tomatoes – You get a lot of them. It’s heavy.
Tommy Pastrami’s Chili Cheese Fries – It’s got nice Steak Fries, but the Chili is a bit Tomato-Paste tasting. It has big chunks of Beef in it, which is ok, but generally not preferred in a CCF.
Carl’s Junior’s Chili Cheese Fries – They’re not bad.
Fatburger’s Chili Cheese Fries – For some reason I expected more, but they were good. Fatburger offers a choice of Skinny Fries or Fat Fries. Pictured here are the Skinny Fries.
SONIC Drive-In’s Chili Cheese Fries – I haven’t tried these yet, but others like them.
Orange County Fair’s Chili Cheese Fries – You can only get them during the OC Fair.
Wienerschnitzel’s Chili Cheese Fries – Unfortunately they’re not one of my top picks. I’d have to go with Carl’s Jr.’s Chili Cheese Fries before these (above).
Pink’s Chili Cheese Fries – Very good. Second favorite to Original Tommy’s Chili Cheese Fries.
Del Taco’s Chili Cheese Fries – I’d pick them over Carl’s Jr. ones, since the Fries are better.
EZ Take Out Burger’s Chili Cheese Fries – I liked them, especially the French Fries. Their Hamburgers are similar to In-N-Out’s Burgers, but dare I say I like EZ Take Out’s Fries better. And Chili Cheese Fries don’t appear to be an option at In-N-Out Burger.
Johnny Rocket’s Chili Cheese Fries – They’re acceptable. Nothing to rave about, nor rag on. On a separate note, their Hamburgers are very good.
Original Tommy’s Chili Cheese Fries – They still stand as my favorite over all those pictured.
Wendy’s Chili Cheese Fries — It’s made with Chili that should be served in a bowl with a side of Buttered Crackers, but instead it’s dumped over French Fries and topped with Cheese. I don’t think so. They’re not recommended.
Jack in the Box Loaded Chili Cheese Wedges — Good with the Onions picked out.
Portillo’s Chili Cheese Fries — Portillo’s Chili has a really good flavor that goes well with their crinkled-cut French Fries and a little melted Cheese. We’d have them again.
Santa Fe Cafe Chili Cheese Fries — They’re best had on their outdoor patio with a Pitcher of Beer.
