Hidden in a tiny strip mall plaza is this gem of a place called Smarco’s Gourmet Grill. I ordered the Chicken Philly combo, which came with fries and a drink (although I paid the extra up-charge for a lemon Snapple instead because lemon Snapple is life). I had actually been to this place before but forgot how yummy their fries are.
Their fries retain that slight sweetness of fresh cut potatoes after frying, which mixes in nicely with the just-right amount of salt they dust on them. They’re soft fries that complemented my sandwich really well. They are a bit on the greasy side, but not so much to keep me from enjoying them.
Smarco’s also offers a garlic fries option, which I’ll probably have to try next time. For science, of course.
