Homemade seasoned baked potato wedges

What is your favorite condiment to pair with wedges and fries? I have such great memories of living in Australia and going out to lunch with friends during the work day. We would pop across the road to a little bar, order a glass of wine and fries with condiments. Not just one condiment though, we had to have an assortment. Mayonnaise with sweet chili sauce is probably my favorite, but you can’t go past the classic ketchup, or garlic aioli.
