The Humble Potato: How Much for Some Fries?

A few days ago, we brought you 10 of the wildest and tastiest fries in Denver, fries so good that they can be considered a meal in themselves. Now it's time to give some attention to those classic, old school fries that have long been the loyal sidekick to a good burger or cold beer. Our celebration of the fried potato continues with a price list of 18 classic spuds from Mile High restaurants.

The requirements for a fry to make this list is pretty basic: it has to be made from regular, white potatoes (sorry sweet potatoes); the fry cannot have anything more than basic seasoning; and it must be available a la carte. Here's how much your favorite fried snack is going to set you back:

The sides of fries at Cheeky Monk Belgian Beer Cafe and Jonesy's Eat Bar are among the most expensive on the list, but if you go during happy hour you can enjoy some of these popular fries (and a drink) at a great discount. For a cheaper and quicker option, try the homemade fries from Mustard's Last Stand. The hot dog stand even offers an $.89 "taster" size if you don't want to feel too guilty.

Didn't see your favorite fries on the list? Post them in the comments below, along with the price, if you've got it!
