- Ground House Burger in Santa Ana offers a Fry Roulette on their menu that comes with six sides and 12 sauces.
- The sides include classic french fries, sweet potato fries, seasoned fries, waffle fries, onion rings, and tater tots.
- They have classic sauces like ketchup, ranch, and barbecue sauce, and a few other flavours including wasabi crema with jalapeño, Thai chilli, and teriyaki aioli.
- INSIDER’s Caroline Aghajanian went to try the Fry Roulette for herself and see if it was really worth the hype.
Following is a transcript of the video.
Caroline: If you’re ever indecisive about which sides to order with your burger, the Fry Roulette might be your solution. It’s a platter of multiple sides and sauces served at Ground House Burger in Santa Ana, California.
Fernando Valladares: Ground House is basically a very disruptive brand, burger spot. We like, you know, being loud or obnoxious but at the same time hitting a lot of classic recipes for our burgers. Oh, my God, when they see it they go wild. I mean, people, they’re always going to where the table is when they see a Fry Roulette. They’re all like, “Yo, where did you get this? What is this? What is this?” People are like, “Can I take a picture of this?” Then when we present it too, when we’re actually walking it to the table, we’re, like, spinning it, so it even builds even more attraction, and people really like it. I mean, especially if you’re bringing your kids, it’s a whole family thing, or between friends, it’s a cool item to have.
Caroline: The Fry Roulette costs about $US40 and can serve roughly two to three people. The six sides include classic french fries, sweet potato fries, seasoned fries, waffle fries, onion rings, and tater tots.
All in all that’s about 72 combos. Now it’s time to try them all and choose our favourite. I’ve never had this many fry-to-sauce options, so I don’t even know where to start, but let’s spin the wheel and find out.
Way better than regular ketchup. That was good.
That’s probably one of the spicier ones on the tray.
Really good with the tater tots. Whew.
This is the famous house sauce with their onion rings. This is what they put on all the burgers, so everyone loves this sauce.
This is like 10 notches up In-N-Out’s Thousand Island sauce. This is really good. It’s spicier too. I love these spicy options. You don’t really get that when you’re eating fries, but it’s a good little twist.
The teriyaki aioli is my favourite.
That was really good.
I was not expecting that. It’s like a nice, sweet, tangy mix. Wow, that is so good. I’m trying it with everything. Whew.
OK, definitely if I came here with the friends, I would hog this one up. That’s mine.
But the best side-to-sauce combo goes to… waffle fries with ranch.
There’s nothing better than a classic.
We had a few other Ground House diners spin for themselves.
Diner 1: That’s really good. Ketchup is always a good choice to start off with. I love that green sauce. That has got jalopeño, spicy?
Diner 2: These onion rings look good.
Caroline: I think the best way to do this is if you come with a giant group of friends, everyone gets their own burgers, and then you guys all get the Fry Roulette because there’s something for everyone, especially if you have the type of friends that can’t agree on one flavour and one option.
This is like the best of, I don’t know, six worlds. So this is the way to do it.
