Hi Gang,
I've been living in Tucson now for about 5 months and have managed to dig up most of the good chow.....
But a week ago I came accross this funky old drive in place on Grande...just off of St. Mary's rd.

It's been there since the 50's I think......and it is a TOTAL flashback !

I pulled in and ordered their special.....a chili dog with fries.....
OH MY GOD !!! THOSE FRIES !!!
Has anyone in Tucson been to this place ????
The fries are flat out the BEST I have EVER had !
They are crunchy, tasty.....just a bit greasy but totally addictive.
Can anyone tell me whether they are hand cut or just pre-ordered.... it is hard to tell....
The skins are on....but that could most likely be ordered from any food service company too.

They just taste GREAT ! I love the place but know nothing about it....can anyone fill me in????
Thanks.
