Who Has The Best Fry Sauce In Idaho?
I've got a buddy coming up to Idaho from my home state of Texas in a few weeks and like most visitors or newcomers, the first thing he asked was: "What should I try first?"
The answer? Fry sauce.
Before coming to Idaho, I had no idea such a treasure existed and I definitely did not know how huge fry sauce is here in the Treasure Valley. There are many stories about where fry stories come from but according to AtlasObscura.com, fry sauce was invented by none other than Arctic Circle founder, Don Carlos Edwards.
Sure, it's essentially a combination of ketchup and mayonnaise but to the people of the Treasure Valley - it's much more than that.
Fry sauce can literally go with anything despite what the name suggests. Can you throw it on your burger? Go for it. Can you dip your finger steaks into it? Absolutely. There are no words to describe not only how versatile fry sauce is but how delicious it is... depending on where you get it.
