Is it actually 2 different types of chips that you get? Or is it french fries instead of the thick chips?

I`ve had American visitors ask me if the fish and chips comes with french fries... There is a precedent for this stuff.

I live in Indiana. And you mister high and mighty...ARE SO RIGHT! Hehe. I call it the butthole of America. It`s a terrible place. The only good things we have here are Purdue and the Colts. Other than that I could do without it.

Actually, French fries are originally from the north of France, even if the French in the word is a reference to the style of cutting the potatoe. Belgium does have more french fries stores than France, despite France being a heck of a lot larger. It`s also a deep rooted Belgian food, just about every Belgian household has a deepfryer.

"Chips (British) are much thicker than fries (American), roughly 4 times thicker (~2x in each direction)"

Then they`re the same thing. In fast food places you typically find fries that are skinny, but there are fast food places (and a ton of restaurants) that serve thicker fries but still call them fries. My mom used to make homemade fries, which were much thicker than mcdonalds fries. We use "fries" to describe all kinds of fries no matter the size or shape. It`s not like we just have fries that look like the ones from mcdonalds or something.

AND French fries aren`t French! (Just thot I`d throw that in since we`re arguing details today.)

Having said that, it`s quite common here in England to refer to fries in American fast food chains like McDonalds as chips. Even though they aren`t.

In case anyone doesn`t know and wants to know but not enough to look it up:

Chips (British) are much thicker than fries (American), roughly 4 times thicker (~2x in each direction) The difference isn`t just cosmetic because the large difference in thickness makes a difference during cooking. Chips are more potato-ey and generally moister because they retain more water during cooking.

No, it doesn`t. Chips (British) and fries (American) are different things. So if this place does serve fish with both, the sign makes sense.

I thought people just knew that when something is called "Fish `n` chips" that it refers to fish and fries. Redundant signs for the uninformed. Also, mmmmm, poutine.

I have been a waiter at a place that served "Fish and Chips", I come out with "Fish and French Fries" and about half the time some Amerifat yells at me "I ORDERED DA FISH `N CHUPS NOT FISH `N FRIES! I DEMAND TO SEE YOUR MANAGER!"

I get an angry customer, time cut out of my routine to deal with some ignorant non-nice individual, and a jipped tip. Trust me, it`s necessary to put the "And fries" on there.

In the UK fries are chips, way to be ignorant.

@softpuppy, Back in my youth I used to work in said fast food chain, in the UK might I add, and one thing that used to piss me off was people that called "fries", "chips".

When I first moved here from England, I asked for some chips at a McDonalds. The drive through guy suggested me to go to Subway for those.

"Must be American.

We have fish and chips up here of course, but we are smart enough to know what it is."
