A Crabilicious Milestone

Chickie’s and Pete’s serves its 5 millionth basket of Crabfries



    A Philly food staple hit a major milestone Thursday night. Chickie’s and Pete’s sold its 5 millionth bucket of Crabfries.

    Crinkle-cut French fries, a little Old Bay seasoning and a cup of melted provolone and mozzarella cheeses for dipping is what makes up the world-famous Crabfries.

    Danielle Granato from Wenonah, N.J. ordered the landmark basket of fried potatoes and got a lot more than a side of cheese.

    Chickie’s awarded her with:

    • Free Bud / Bud Light for life, as permitted by law
    • Free Crabfries every time you come to Chickie’s & Pete’s for life
    • Weekend stay, round-trip limo transportation, and dinner for two at Bally’s Atlantic City
    • Weekend’s wardrobe and image consultation
    • Tiger Woods professional golf watch by Tag Heuer
    • Two tickets for an Eagles game, followed by a post-game dinner for two with Eagles players.
    • VIP treatment at future Chickie’s & Pete’s events.
    • 26" Adult Eagles Mountain Bike
    • Autographed Eagles, Flyers, Phillies, and Sixers gear
    Not bad, huh? It took the nationally ranked sports bar 30 years to hit the milestone.
