National French Fry Day 2019: Where to Get Deals and Free Fries
French fries are a truly irresistible food—best eaten when they’re piping hot, golden, crispy, and have just the slightest amount of oil lingering on the outside. (If you’ve ever gotten them in a drive-thru, you’re probably all too familiar with the small grease stains that linger on the to-go bag.) Over the years, people have taken to covering them with chili cheese sauce and piling on cheese curds and gravy à la poutine, dunking them in various aiolis, like this smoky homemade version from Michael Paley, or pairing them with Champagne. However, they’re also just as perfect on their own, so it comes as no surprise that they have their own dedicated national holiday. This coming Saturday, July 13 is 2019’s National French Fry Day—and to celebrate, several restaurants are offering deals on all things French fries. Check out the offers we’ve found so far below, and stay tuned up until July 13 as we add more.
