What does it mean "Side" in "A side of pickles"? Since seeing "pickles" it implies for me that there are some pickles there
and not just one, hence I don't understand "side"?

“Dear Mr. Farrell. I’ve been coming to your restaurant ever since you opened. I really love the place. I love your ice cream. I love the fun. I love your hamburgers. They’re the best. I love your pickles. They are the best pickle in Seattle. I always ask for an extra pickle. They always give me one. Today Mr. Farrell, I came in, had my usual, asked for an extra pickle from the young waitress. Well, I don’t know where she got the idea, but she said, ‘I’ll have to sell you a side of pickles for 75 cents.’ If that’s the way you’re going to run your restaurant Mr. Farrell, I’m not coming back.”

    A side of pickles means a side order of pickles. She is telling him that he will have to buy more pickles in a side order if he wants an extra pickle with his hamburger.
