So, I have surveyed two more establishments on my great chili cheese tour of Utah Valley. Provo's own Apollo Burger, and I even ventured as far as distant American Fork's State Street for some of JCWs fine fries.
Apollo Burger: Very good. Much better than Carl's Jr for one because the fries were much bigger--and bigger seems better in this area--and the chili was also better and more evenly distributed, creating a nicer overall picture to look at. That being said, the cheese used was nacho cheese, a big no no in the chili cheese fries world I think. It's common sense that you melt the cheese on the heat of the chili, thus pre-melted or soft cheeses should not even be considered. Still, tasty, 2.5 stars.
JCWs: These are the most expensive to date, and probably the best. They tasted great, the chili and cheese were spread evenly and there was enough to attach to nearly every fry. The fries weren't as big as Apollo Burger's, but bigger than Carl's Jr--a fine size fries really. Plus, the cheese was orange and white and melted by the chili just as should be. Good, but pricey. Also the portion was a tad stingy. Still hit the spot. 3 stars.
