If you don’t agree with that statement, I don’t think we could be friends.  Seriously, who doesn’t love a side of crispy, starchy goodness to accompany a juicy burger every now and then?

Regardless of the few possible (but very tolerable) downsides, I still left after my first indulgence a few years back thinking, “Roost, seriously? No, really, where...
