If you are a connoisseur of NJ Diners you have probably had, or at least heard of Disco Fries. Disco Fries are usually steak french fries on the crunchy side topped with brown gravy and then either mozzarella or white cheddar cheese usually and then put under the broiler.

Disco Fries are a version of poutine which originated in Canada and is a dish of french fries topped with white cheddar cheese curds and beef gravy.

From Wikipedia:

Disco Fries, also known as “Elvis Fries,” served in New Jersey and select New York City diners, are made with brown gravy, mozzarella, and heavier steak fries. Elsewhere in the greater New York City area and Long Island, diners serve “cheese fries,” using either American (processed) cheese or mozzarella. Diners in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut serve “gravy-cheese-fries” or even “french fries with cheese and gravy”; these are most commonly steak fries, brown gravy, and American cheese.
