“All that and a plate of fries” ("All that and a plate of chips")

"All that and a plate of fries” (or “All that and a plate of chips in the United Kingdom) means that someone is fully satisfactory, but also with something special. The saying --also applied to other foods besides french fries—is similar to the saying “all that and a bag of chips” that was popular in the 1990s.

“‘Non-fiction’ is all that and a plate of rice” was posted on the newsgroup alt.rap on January 6, 1995. “Cause we’re all that, and a plate of green beans” was posted on the newsgroup alt.rave on February 8, 1995.

“Is it really all that and a plate of fries and gravy?” was posted on the newsgroup alt.tv.homicide on December 28, 1997. “Since I consider M.R. James to be a bit overrated—excellent, but not all that and a plate of chips—I’m willing to be believe you” was posted on the newsgroup rec.arts.sf.written on June 11, 2007.
