The Weekly Open Thread: Who Has the Best Fries in Nashville?

I've been involved in a lengthy Facebook thread the last couple of days, all started by just six words:

"Nashville: best place for french fries?"

This seemingly innocuous query triggered an onslaught of responses, disagreements, accusations, recriminations and conspiracy theories like you wouldn't believe. (OK, I'm exaggerating just a tad, though one commenter — who may or may not frequent this blog — accused everyone of having terrible taste for not agreeing with him.)

Contenders included:

Hot Diggity Dogs
Fat Mo's
Gabby's
The Pharmacy
Nordstrom
Batter'd & Fried
Checkers
McDonald's
Fido
Burger Up
Five Guys
12South Taproom
Noshville

And it was just three weeks ago that we were discussing the relative merits of our city's potato wedges, so it only makes sense that we would tackle the wedge's more popular cousin.

Personally, I'm partial to Hot Diggity Dog's, not to mention the truffle-oil fries at both Burger Up and blvd.

So, Bites readers, who has the best fries? For the sake of this discussion, let's exclude sweet-potato fries.

And what else ya got?
