McClard's BBQ

Often BBQ joints don't have fries at all.  They mostly have chips.  I have no idea why, but it seems pretty common.  Maybe because they have all that smoky-bbqey equipment they don't want the added trouble of a deep fryer.  It's a mystery.  McClard's BBQ in Hot Springs, AR is "world famous".  Any of my fans in Sweden heard of it?

They brag that they have fries with this fancy neon sign in the window.  Game on.

The place has been there since 1856 or something, and they haven't changed the interior since then.

GIBBY:  What should I order, Jack?
JACK: Barbecue you idiot.

Fries are $3.20.  Pretty steep.  They must be super-good.  I ordered them "as an appetizer".  And who is Fred?

This is them.

Fork for scale.

The presentation looked impressive, but as with most things in America, there was more than meets the eye.  This was just a standard paper boat with wax paper to fluff up the fries to make it look like there were more than there actually were.

There were a lot of "ends".

I have to say that although McClard's KILLS IT with their BBQ (Pulled Pork, Tamale, and beans).

And peach cobbler:

The fries are meh (and expensive).  Go to McClard's cause it's awesome, but skip the fries.
5 out of 10.

P.S. Jack says that I am dead to him now cause I rated the fries low on accounta it's one of his favorite joints in the world.

P.P.S.  The bathrooms are outside around the back like at a gas station.  What's up with that?
