Chicago’s Original Pose
HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHICAGO

You get the full grease effect as you unwrap your order, the wax paper turning translucent as you peel hot fries away, dip them in the vinegar peppery hot sauce and pop them in your mouth. First off, the hot sauce, made in house, reminded me of the vinegar kick of heat of Co-Op hot sauce. It’s got just enough kick to be an addictive condiment for the fries, which at first glance have a nice golden brown color but look limp as a wet noodle. I prefer my fries crispy, so I was ready for heartbreak, but Jimmy’s must know some magic because these fries worked. They were more like eating a fresh baked potato — creamy and full of flavor with just a little bit of texture and skin. These fries have soul and character, perfected over the years to be totally unsuspecting at first glance but pack a total punch at first bite.

Get your mind out of the gutter.
