76: Animal Fries from RnR
Sometimes you find yourself in Old Town. Don't fret. It's happened to the best of us. And when you do find yourself in Scottsdale, it's best to do as the Scottsdalians do, and work in a little rest 'n' relaxation with your rock 'n' roll at RnR. Two tiers of shady patio to watch the evening's human circus strut the strip, cocktails aplenty, and best of all: Animal Fries that put In-and-Out's "secret menu" to shame.
The Animal Fries were a messy, stick-to-your-ribs satisfying option. A pile of crispy sweet potato and regular potato matchsticks deep fried and smothered in fresh cheese, tender pulled pork, and spicy-sweet bbq sauce. You will need a fork to consume this massive pile of blissful potatoes and shredded meat, and it's likely that you'll still end up covered in bbq sauce, but it's totally worth it.
