So we grabbed a bite at Twinz Big City (in Tampa)

First with the Bad:
The restaurants location is in a strip mall next to Jazzy's BBQ, so it has low visibility and poor access to Waters Ave.
They are still brand new to the area, so they're still working out all the supply kinks (lack of ketchup and so on)

The Good:
The prices range from $2 up to $9.

The twin brothers (Robert and Rich) who run the joint deliver on friendly service, a clean store, and serve a variety of hamburgers, and wide variety of dogs.

Now these are pretty good; but, what seals the deal are the french fries. I had the sweet potato waffle fries, and I thoroughly enjoyed the sweet, salty, and crunchy mix of flavors. My wife had the regular french fries, and they were great. When I asked Rich about what he seasons the fries with, he knowingly winked, nodded, and changed the subject.

When we left, I told my woman that I think they use celery salt mixed with a few other spices. My significant other responded that she's pretty certain there's heroin in the spice mix, because she already craving another fix (for you humor impaired readers: the heroin remark my wife made is what's commonly referred to as "dark" humor; she really isn't addicted to anything).

So the next time you're in Town and Country, near the intersection of Waters Ave and Benjamin, and are looking for a quick bite to eat, give them a shot.
