jacks urban fries recipeWhen I was pregnant with my youngest son, I ate Urban Fries from Jack’s Urban Eats in Sacramento probably once a week. Urban Fries are french fries topped with blue cheese dressing, hot chili oil, red pepper flakes, and lots of chopped parsley. Admittedly, it is a strange combination, but I promise you, they are crave-worthy. I was so sick when I was pregnant, I would be sick 8-9 times a day until the day I delivered. I was not a happy girl, to say the least. It is counter-intuitive, but the only thing that would make me feel better was hot and spicy food. These fries always made me happy.  And I am positive that they will make you happy too.

When I made these, I expected them to be okay, but miss the real ones from Jack’s. I did not miss them at all, these are even better, if-I-do-say-so-myself. I prefer the waffle fry to the matchstick fry. I think that the waffle fry is a better vehicle for these because it holds more of the goodness on top. The homemade ranch/blue cheese takes these to a whole new level. Some kick from the hot chili oil and red pepper flakes make these just spicy enough. But my absolute favorite part is the parsley. I love how much freshness it adds to these. I love parsley on just about anything though.

    Mmm, those look great. I love anything with blue cheese. If you are having trouble finding a neutral chili oil, you could make your own. http://www.wikihow.com/Make-Chili-Oil

    You know, I never met a french fried potato I didn’t like. I quite possibly have just met a french fried potato that I’d want to marry if I wasn’t already. OMG THAT LOOKS YUM. *ahem*

  21. [...] I am not even going to bother with chit chat. Let’s just talk about these fries. They are insane. Beyond what I could have ever expected in a French fry. Heaven in a cast iron skillet. Amazing. These might even edge out my love for these babies. [...]

  22. Katie says:

    I am so excited that someone has tackled these fries! They are SO good — my favorite part of eating at Jack’s!! My bleu cheese-loving boyfriend still hasn’t tried Jacks, so I think I better cook these up quickly and impress his pants off!

  23. Hayley says:

    I go to Jack’s all the time in Granite Bay and for some reason have never ordered these! Crazy, because they look so good and I flock to any kind of smothered fries :) I’ll try their version and then this version, but I’m betting this one’s best!

  24. Manda says:

    I am from michigan and moved to california last year. The girls at work introduced me to urban frys ( i was a little “put off” as I am not a fan of blue cheese). These frys are the best ive ever … EVER had. I have sence moved away to wisconsin now and have craved these frys ever since! It never dawned on me to make them myself. I am so excited to have stumbled apon this site, thank you SOOOOOO much!

  25. Lisa says:

    Having once lived in Sacramento where I was a huge fan of Jack’s Urban Eats, I just had to put these to the test. You nailed it Bree!!!! These definitely satisfy my craving for Jack’s. I have to agree with you, I do believe that I prefer yours a tad bit more. But shhhh! We won’t mention that fact to the folks at Jack’s. Wouldn’t want to hurt their feelings! ;-)
