Deep Fried Pickle Chips?

I've been tasked with finding these in SF proper. A google search turned up Barclays in Oakland. Anyone seen or had them anywhere in SF? Apparently they are just what they sound like, served with a side of Ranch. I'm guessing someplace with an extensive bar menu might have them? Thanks.

  1. Hooters has them on the menu according to menu search. Sorry don't know whether they are slices or spears. Here's what the chips look like.

      Hooters' fried pickles are chips and not spears.

    2. Have not seen them in SF but have tried the version at Barclays. My friend hated them, I found them quite addictive.

      1. I think they're also called wallys (wallies, wally's) if that helps you locate some.

        1. Deep fried pickles are on the menu at Weird Fish in the Mission.

          1. Sorry to the original poster, but to anyone who clicked on this thread who isn't SF-constrained, you can get 'em at The Counter in Walnut Creek, Palo Alto, and Santana Row.

            Were they good? Ehhhh......"it's the kind of thing you'd like, if you like that kind of thing."

            1. Well, not chips but spears at Bender's at the corner of 19th and South Van Ness. Can't say that I liked them but maybe fried pickles just aren't my thing.
