Fries with That Salad?

I'm from the land where we seem to put fries on everything: Pittsburgh. I know the whole fries-on-the-sandwich thing is kind of what we're known for, but I didn't know that it's unusual on salads also!?

I went to dinner with a few friends who were visiting from Indiana and she ordered a chicken salad. Which came with grilled chicken, fries, and cheese and all the other salad 'fixins. She was so surprised that there were fries on top! In the Pittsburgh area that's just a staple menu item, also coming in the steak variety.

So i guess my question is don't other people put fries on their salads?
