A fritter roll (the 'Joe special' in most Glasgow shops) is a Scottish food item which can be found in many fish and chip shops ('chippy' in Scottish dialect).

The fritter roll consists of one or two potato fritters enclosed in a floury bap (bread roll) and is usually served with salt and vinegar, sometimes with tomato ketchup or brown sauce on top of the fritter.

The potato fritter is fried very crisp, often with the inclusion of beef drippings on the fritter prior to dropping it in the frier. This is an inexpensive food.
