Details About Why are they called French fries:

Despite its name, French fries are a Belgian dish, not a French one. During World War I, American soldiers were introduced to fried potatoes by thin-sliced Belgian soldiers. They called them such because the soldiers could speak French. Fried food is simply referred to as fries. Another phrase for slicing a vegetable thinly is “French cut.”
