What are "Belgian Fries" anyhow? [moved from L.A. board]

The last time I was in Belgium was in 1967. The last - and first - time I was at The Oinkster was about an hour ago. I had a pulled pork sandwich (okay, not fantastic, not bad) and "Belgian Fries." The fries seemed to be granulated potatoes formed into the shape of fries and then fried. They weren't terrible, but they weren't particularly good either. On a scale of 10, I might give them a four or thereabouts.

Overall, at $11.10 for an okay pulled pork sandwich, not very good "Belgian Fries" and a medium soda, I'm willing to give the place another try or two and maybe another month or so to break itself in, before I write it off. But if today's experience proves to be typical I'll be giving it a pass after that.
