Texas Chili Cheese Fries - French fries topped with chili, cheddar cheese, BBQ sauce, chopped bacon, and grilled onions.

Why would you put BBQ sauce on when you've already got chili?

And BBQ sauce in Texas? Must be from one of those small shanty towns along the border of Arkansas.

Wouldn't the Aussie version be more appropriate with beet root, pineapple, and a fried egg?

My opinion is you can't order this kind of thing to go. The cheese and the fries get too cold and rubbery. Considering how we have been living for a bit over a year this kind of food is banished from the menu.

As long as it's not Cincinnati chili, I'm fine with it.

Doesn't matter, the poison in it kills you before you can fuss all that much about the ingredients.

Texas BBQ is great. Why ruin it with a sauce? I could definitely see this of a place like Texarkana where even the locals are not sure which state they live in.

Also to the smart ass saying at least it's not cincinnati chili.

No one in cincinnati claims it's chili. It is a godsdamn meat sauce. Anyone who grew up there would tell you it's not chili, even the backwoods rednecks would tell you it's not real chili. It is mock turtle soup. It is delicious for what it is, but it is not chili.

If you have a problem with its name blame the damn Greeks for coming coming over here, making it up and calling it "chili" to sell it. Then blame the Arabs for taking it and making their own and still called it "chili".

Really If you get down to it, it became a very socially acceptable food that everyone took as their own, for all walks of life in the valley and for all the different cultures that ended up in the German town of the Queen City that was Porkopolis.

Next you'll say goetta is a meatloaf. And then the German in me is gonna have to start getting riled up.

And this is from a son of Chicago who grew up in Cincinnati, lived in Texas and thinks Austin is the mecca of all things food and music. Who also lived in Montana and swears by all things drinkable from coffee to beer, Montana is best (I will allow for an argument for New Orleans and Cafe Du Monde, but those hicks also have drive thru daiquiris).

End rant of defending Cincinnati "Chili" and also if I was gonna choose a place for chili cheese fries or a legit coney that these are based on, I'm gonna point to Detroit.

Whoa. Nice flex. Shrooms must have given you some bounce in your step.

I'm just weighing in to say if it's not Cincinnati 'chili', why isn't it called 'Cincinnati meat sauce'?

Texas - it's like a whole other country.

So take that Stars and Stripes off the pitcher Wienerschnitzel.

Because Greek immigrants wanted to sell it to German immigrants.

You can eat it in your car?

There is a Danish version of this kind of fries, so I don't think the concept as such is American.

In Denmark it's fries, sliced hot dog, kebab and dressing. Sometimes lettuce. The kebab came to Denmark in the 60s we ran out of workers, and imported a lot from Turkey.

It's a disgusting dish you'd only eat when drunk.

Over the course of the last 14 months or so, Ms. Gough and I have fine tuned what to-go items need to be consumed in the nearest modestly aesthetic parking spot and what ones travel home without a major decline in quality.  Burritos and Arroz con Pollo:  OK for the trip home.  Fish and chips:  pull over ASAP.

We now keep silverware, napkins, wet wipes, and two quarter-sheet pans in the car.

I read in a lifehacks article, that fries get soggy if you keep the bag closed. But, if you open it up they'll stay crisp.

Worked for me the two times I tried it.

Nothing wrong with eating in your car though.

Step one: bake yourself a solid serving of shoestring fries
Step two: once baked and crisp, put into oven safe bowl and smother in green chili
Step three: cover entire surface with quarter inch thick layer of bacon crumbs
Step four: melt cheese on top
Step five: For gods sake, let it cool off before you eat it so you dont burn your mouth
