DFW-Carne asada fries?

I've recently found out about something called carne asada fries.....seems they're a popular dish at taquerias in San Diego. From the description....I would liken them to Snuffer's cheese fries, with carne asada and guacamole on top.

I looked on Wiki, and they said: Carne asada fries are a local specialty found primarily in San Diego, and Los Angeles California, but can also be found on the menus of Taquería-like Mexican restaurants in other parts of the American Southwest including, but not limited to, Sacramento, Fort Worth,[1] and Tucson but is normally not a menu item in most "traditional" Mexican Restaurants

Fort Worth? Please tell me it's so. Has anyone had these, or seen these on a menu at a taqueria in DFW?

  1. French fries with meat, guacamole and cheese on top...Frito Pie's cousin.

    1. With a scan of about 10 or so restaurant menus in Fort Worth I did not see the dish on any menu. That is not to say you can not request the dish to be made. I would go with El Asadero (a place specializing in grilled steaks) on North Main over in Fort Worth. They do have steaks (obivously) and they also have fries (papas).

      1. They have them at the Peace Burger Dive in Grapevine. The chili cheese friez great too. If you go be sure an get the DIABLO burger and you will thank me!

        1. They are on the menu at the San Deigo Taco Shop. I'm not sure if they have a website, but they have 2 Irving locations, one in Dallas, and one in North Richland Hills. Its a local taqueria chain. They are 5.50 for a pretty big pile. The menu says they come with cheese, sour cream, and guac. If you go, check your order before you leave. I got all the way home before I realized that they had skipped the sour cream and guacamole and had skimped on the cheese. Needless to say, they sucked. I'll chalk it up as a mistake in the kitchen because every other time I have gone there I have enjoyed my tacos.
