Food Network Magazine has named HopCat’s Crack Fries to its ranking of “America’s 10 Best French Fries,” so the bar chain said it will celebrate next Wednesday.

All five of HopCat locations will offer the dine-in-only Crack Fries deal on July 1, with one per customer from 11 a.m.-midnight.

The locations include the original Grand Rapids location, as well as East Lansing, Ann Arbor, Detroit and Indianapolis.
