Say what you will about Guy Fieri, but when he visited Scully's Tavern in Miami for Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives, the dude was onto something. The bar food is excellent, including popular darlings such as escargots and the potato-chip-encrusted dolphin sandwich ($12.25) -- but the French fries end up being stars in their own right. Never soggy or floppy, always delicious. The golden brown color is an invitation to crunch away. There's no need to toss them in spices or dunk 'em in some aioli or another. You'll just require the perfectly salted French fry, your mouth, and the interpretive happy dance that's sure to follow.
