What is the origin of pairing hamburgers with French fries/chips? I'm finding stories about the origin of burgers and the origin of fries but nothing about why they're usually paired together.

Myths/legends about "the first place that served burgers and fries" are okay, since this seems like the kind of thing that will have a few conflicting origin stories.
