Food Network magazine names HopCat's French fries among the best in the country

Click this link to Food Network magazine's list of the ten best plates of French fries in the country and you'll notice a familiar name right off the bat. HopCat's popular Crack Fries fill out the first slide. 

Of the popular potatoes, the magazine says, "HopCat's Founders settled on the final recipe for crack fries (named for how addictive they are) while sitting around a table drinking beer — which could explain why the fries are battered in light beer before they're sprinkled with black pepper seasoning. Some people order extra toppings, like cheese sauce, jalapeños, and onion, and almost everyone orders a cold one on the side. The owner's favorite: an IPA called Huma Lupa Licious by Michigan-based Short's Brewing Company."

In honor of this momentous acknowledgment, all five of HopCat's locations are offering free Crack Fries with any purchase to every guests on Wednesday, July 1. They'll also start offering the cheese sauce at no additional cost to patrons who order a la carte Crack Fries.
