You know that thing that happens when you're dining out and the server asks if you'd like fries or salad and you think, "this is a ridiculous question" cause the answer is always fries? Well, prepare to have that never happen again with the grand opening of Get Fried.
On Friday, March 9, Austin's first french fry-only restaurant will open in the Dobie Mall food hall at 2021 Guadalupe St. Diners can select one of six styles of gourmet fries including hand-cut, straight cut, curly, seasoned waffle, sweet potato, and funnel fries. The fries are then customizable with 14 different sauces ranging from classic ketchup to dijon horseradish to maple syrup, as well as seasonings and protein options.
Those looking for heartier fare can order up one of Get Fried's baskets like Texas Cheese Fries, Original Pizza Logs, and Buffalo Crunch Rolls. The restaurant also serves Dutch-style frites in a paper cone as well as sliders with waffle fry "buns."
Since opening in 2015, Get Fried has rapidly expanded to locations in Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, Buffalo, Santa Clara, and Egypt. Opening next in Austin, says the company, was a natural fit. "There is an incredible food culture in Austin, and I look forward to introducing the community to the Get Fried brand," said franchise owner Drew Travis in a release.
Get Fried's grand opening festivities will begin at noon on March 9 with a DJ, gift cards and apparel giveaways, and a special grand prize.
