French Fry Expert Curls Up to Fries in Fayetteville

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA) - When it comes to French fries, Kyle Gibson is no "spec tater."

He "hash" a lot of opinions on the topic. 

"It had to be 8 years ago, almost 9 years ago," Gibson said. "I was between jobs and I had a little time on my hands so i started a blog like everybody else did."

The topic of discussion? 

French fries. Well - not just French fries. 

"I will do fried potatoes," Gibson said.

But not all spuds are created equal in Gibson's mind. 

"I won't do sweet potatoes fries because those are gross," he said. "I don't know why, I just don't like them."

He tries fries from restaurants all over but today he returned to an old favorite - Arsaga's at the Depot. 

"They have  a whole section of the menu dedicated to French fries," he said. 

He doesn't let his reviews spiral out of control.

"I used to do scores. I don't do scores anymore. I just only review places where I find fries that I think people should really go and try," he said.

And he doesn't let the calories bother him. 

"If I eat the cabbage then it's healthy," he said.  

Especially on National French Fry Day. 

"It's like French Fry Christmas," he said.
