Interesting. Fries with what ?
I came across a term "fries with that" on Washington Post today. And I said to myself, with what ?

I looked up in a dictionary and found out that fries with that seemed to mean simply just fries. And I am posting all these to solicit a double check by you guys.

Is "fries with that" just fries ?

If so, why "with that" ?

If not, then, with what ? Nothing particular, simply what's on the table right now ?

I've always heard it as either just a joke and a mock of McDonald's or basically a way of saying they are asking for too much.

It was used in the news title: The growing fries-with-that economy. This piece talked about consecutive job growth in the US, with a somewhat emphasis on that it was mainly in food services and drinking places.

News link.
