You know you're in trouble when a joint sells fries by the pound. When "small, medium and large" just don't quite convey what it is you're getting yourself into, it's a sign that what you're about to order and consume is something spectacular enough to be sold in bulk. At Hugo's, the hand-cut, battered fries are indeed sold by the pound. They're not wimpy little skinny fries treated with preservatives and fried to order. Oh, no. These spuds each punch in at heavyweight status waiting for some unknowing sucker to be foolish enough to order a full pound. Our advice? Get a half pound and be sure to get a side of spicy ketchup.
