This is good to know, seeing that I will be passing through Hillsboro within the next month. There are only two restaurants in town, and I heard one of them is going to close. I hope it's not this one!

    Benardi's in Huron Ohio. For years they had the fry concession at Cedar Point Amusement Park. Those were the best fries ever. They don't anymore, but the ones at their restaurant in Huron come close.

      there is a concession at the Englishtown Flea Market in NJ (i think it's in the grey building) - they have been there forever, and all they sell is fresh cut french fries, orangeade or lemonade...they are, hands down, the best fries i ever tasted! people line up, give their orders to the cheerful guy behind the counter, and wait patiently for the latest batch of fries to get cooked...the counter guy always remembers what you ordered, no matter how long the line is (and it gets VERY long!)...these crispy gems come with a little bit of skin on so you can tell they were hand-peeled - the veil of salt that gets sprinkled on them hot out of the fryer is all they need! don't know the name, but anyone at the market should be able to point you in the right direction...

        Oh wow,I love the Englishtown Flee market. Also some great food treats there. In the 60's the Sausage Man had a stand and sold awesome Italian sausage sandwiches. The line was often 30-40 people long!!

          The Boston Globe website has an interesting article about cooks trying to make the best fries.

            That would be Berardi's (not Bernardi's) in Huron and Sandusky.

                  Best fries in Chicago area, Poochies, Weiner's Circle, and Stosh's.

                    For a chain, I'd probably go with Nathan's, although they are quite inconsistant.

                    Best - Without a doubt - are at Al's in Burlington, VT.

                    Worst without a doubt - it's a tie between Arbies & Burger King.

                      Arthur Bryant's are right up there..Bill Voss is right on the $$. Cooked in lard. They present a real problem to anyone eating at AB's because they fill up your stomach and make it very hard to finish one of their one pound meat sandwiches. I still regret not being able to finish my half of a brisket sandwich and short end rib sandwich because I could not stop eating those fries!

                      But, I'm going to have to vote for my former competitor in Pittsburgh..The Original or the "Dirty O" as it's called by the locals for best french fry. Fried in peanut oil using the best high recovery fryers (Keatings) in the business(IMHO)and served in quantities that are hard to believe. It is impossible to walk away from that counter without some of those mountainous overflowing fries falling someplace. They are classic.

                      There is supposed to be a great Belgium style pomme frite store on 2nd Avenue in the East Village in NYC. Never been there, but heard it was great. I read where they fry their potatoes at two different temperatures to get a unique texture. Lots of unusual toppings to go with them. In Vancouver, they had a place jsut like it and that one was real good. But, not as good as the original's in Pittsburgh.

                        As to French Fries at The Green Dragon I haven't tried Finks yet but can swear that Newswanger's in the same market has the best FFs by far that I've ever tasted. Great with one of their sausage sandwiches.
