Last month, I wrote about burgers, fries, and shakes, and how that particular meal is as Utahn as using the Wasatch Mountain range to stand in for an actual sense of direction. We love our burger and ice cream combos deeply. They’re available all over the place, in every corner of the state, and they’re delicious--but the most essentially Utah part of the meal comes in a little cup with the fries. It’s all about the fry sauce, a major edge our state has on the burger-fries-milkshake market. When Utahns talk about burgers, we’re also talking about fries, and when we talk about fries, we’re talking about what we dip them in. Shakes are a bonus, an add-on nod to the indomitable Utah sweet tooth, but less crucial to the perfect experience than the gloopy pink condiment for which we are famous.
Stone Drug in Spanish Fork has the best fry sauce!
