On matchdays, you can see many a fan tucking into them as a last-minute treat before kick-off or as something to accompany a half-time pint.
But one recent visitor to St Andrews received arguably the worst ever portion of the carb-heavy snack.
BBC reporter Mark Webber tweeted a picture of the cheesy chips he was given during his visit to the home of the Blues.
And to the shock of his followers, the image showed a portion of chips with a sorry slice of American cheese on top.
Webber was left gobsmacked and made his gripe known when replying to a tweet about the ongoing building works at St Andrews.
He tweeted: "Never mind that! What about the real scandal at St Andrew’s.
"This is what passes for cheesy chips in their away end. Price to you – £4 (with a pint)."
The tweet quickly started doing the rounds on social media and caused quite the stir.
One footie fan said: "The worst cheesy chips ever."
Another said: "WTF lol. I feel your pain there m8."
Another said: "Surely (slice of) cheese ON chips would be a more accurate description."
The worst cheesy chips ever.
One remarked: "Cheese is there for banter. Slap it on your mates face when he’s not expecting it and it’s paid for itself."
Most footie fans that came across the tweet, however, were almost as stunned Webber was able to buy a portion of chips with cheese and a pint for only £4.
One said: "Try getting thar pint alone for less than £6 in London."
Another said: "£4 for chips and a pint??? Jesus, I can barely even buy a bottle of water at West Ham for £4."
And another said: "At West Ham it's £6 for a beer alone."
One asked: "£4 for chips, cheese and a pint? Why are you complaining?"
Birmingham kicked off their Championship campaign last weekend with a 1-0 victory away at Sheffield United.
The Blues will be back in action on Saturday afternoon, welcoming third-placed Stoke City to St Andrews.
