Here are five more plates of cheese-drizzled, meat-laden, gravy-and-sauce-slathered fries:

Try These Five Outrageous Hangover Cures
Hangover Fries Where to get them: Max's Wine Dive, 214 Fairview
Let us just start by saying that breakfast poutine should be a thing everywhere. At the Taft location of Max's Wine Dive, you can get your hangover with a side of poutine-style fries ($13.50) smothered with a rich, 8th Wonder brew-infused gravy, piled with melted redneck cheddar and topped with two ready-to-pop fried eggs. The dish makes for the perfect brunch appetizer (which should also be a thing everywhere because brunch appetizers are excellent) or extreme hangover solution.
Red Eye Fries Where to get them: Cook & Collins, 2416 Brazos
Remember two seconds ago when we spoke of brunch appetizers and how they were incredibly excellent? Same thing goes for this mountain of "red eye" fries ($9 at brunch). The crunchy boardwalk-style frites come absolutely drenched in spiced buffalo chili, bubbling cheddar cheese, whole grain mustard and an oozing sunny-side-up egg. Oh, and hot sauce, of course.
Kimchi Fries Where to get them: Koagie Hots
Curly fries go fully loaded with a slathering of creamy Sriracha mayo, crumbles of salty feta cheese, a scattering of green onions, and a healthy dollop of homemade, fresh and tangy kimchi. Each bite packs a punch of flavor that's hard to beat. Get them for $6.50 and be happy you did.

Buffalo Fries Where to get them: Hubcap Grill, 1133 W. 19th
Four dollars will get you a plate full of Hubcap's incredibly crisp and fat hand-cut fries smothered in hot and buttery buffalo sauce and chunky and stinky blue cheese dressing. It's like eating wings without all the work. Or the sticky fingers.
Animal-Style Fries Where to get them: Bismillah Cafe, 5696 Hillcroft
California meets Pakistan at this casual Pakistani-American chaat house. The chubby taters ($4.99) come piled with sweet and tangy Thousand Island dressing and deeply grilled onions, just as the infamous In-N-Out fries are. But at Bismillah, the animal-style fries get an extra kick of flavor from the café's aromatic ten spice blend. It's a match made in heaven.
