Maybe you call it "loaded fries" but chances are here in Jersey you call them "disco fries". Almost any diner here in New Jersey has their own take on "disco fries". Our version of the potato dish is very similar to our friends from the north. Canadiens have "poutine". Poutine is disco fries from the north lol.

When I was in Canada I had "poutine" in Montreal and it was good, but it doesn't beat our "disco fries" here in Jersey. According to Google, they're called that "because they were the preferred late-night meal of the polyester-clad disco crowd, at its peak from the mid-'70s to early '80s."

"Canada gave us poutine, and New Jersey has its own twist on the fries, cheese and gravy combo: disco fries. These are cheese fries, usually with mozzarella melted through and topped with brown gravy. They’re particularly popular as a late-night snack or hangover cure." ~ Lovefood.com
