I actually love crinkle cut fries at restaurants.I do not seek them out, but when they are served I am a happy girl........as far as who serves the best fries-Cousins Subs in Milwaukee and the state-they drop them when you order them......

    Had lunch at Snuffer's in Preston Center today. I thought the fries were, TERRIBLE! I brought an extra order of fries back to the office and my staff had the same opinion: TERRIBLE!

      Les Halles on John Street in Lower Manhattan (just off of Fulton Street) has the best frites ever. I'm not sure if those are being considered the same as fries. They are perfectly fried each time, crispy, soft inside, with just the right amount of salt. I don't want to eat fries anywhere else for about a week after out of fear they will ruin the memories.

          I had some great fries yesterday at the Amazing Hot Dog in Verona, NJ. This was a stop on the NJ Hot Dog Tour. The fries are twice fried and seasoned with salt & pepper. This place pays great attention to detail and these were a real treat.

          Also, try their homemade limeade - it is only $2 and is a great drink.

              I like In-n-Out fries, but everyone seems to hate them (except, of course, alesrus). Go Padres!

One such "chipmobile" as I like to call them is called Albert's Rolling Lunch which specialized in making french fries. They have been around during the summer months located underneath the Blue Water Bridge that connects Sarnia with Port Huron , Michigan since about late 50s early 60s and have been a local landmark. There would be long lineups at Albert's for people wanting their delicious fresh cut fries. I liked them best with some white vinegar and salt. Then we would eat them by the St. Clair River while the big Laker vessels would sail by on a warm summer's evening. They were the best, and they're still around today.
                  Are there any places in America tha have "chipmobiles"?


                  Nice to see a fellow Roadfooder from Southern Ontario!

                  I have to agree with you FoodDude - Chip Wagons rock! Unfortunately, I can't remember the names or exact locations but the BEST fries I have ever eaten came from a) a chip wagon just outside of Smith Falls near Ottawa (great burger too!) and b) a chip wagon on the way to a friend's cottage on Lake Huron near Owen Sound.

                  If you should ever be in Kitchener - and Oktoberfest (OkSlobberFest) IS approaching - you should try the chip wagon at Fairway and old King St. Wonderful fries (and good ice cream in the summer). Apparently, they also make the best "Newfie Fries" - fries, cheese, peas (canned), turkey stuffing all covered with gravy. Some people love them. I say they're an acquired taste, at best. UGH.

                  There's also a decent chip wagon one on Manitou at Bleams in Kitchener.

                  If you're in Waterloo, there used to be an excellent chip wagon in front of Waterloo Town Square. It's been a permanent fixture for years but with all of the construction/renovation, I'm not sure where it has relocated to. In any event, if you can't find that chip wagon, you can always head for Sonny's at the intersection of University and Weber. When I was a student at U of Waterloo (late '80s) everyone said the grease was old THEN! I'm sure that they haven't changed it since! Good fries and great burgers and dogs.

                    Duck fat fries at Hot Dougs (Friday & Saturday Only) in Chicago or the frites at Mon Ami Gabi, also Chicago.

                      I just happened to run across this thread while surfing.

                      We are "mobile" in the Portland, ME area for a few days R&R.

                      A short while ago we had our evening meal at the Friendly's near the Maine Mall. Wife and I both had fries with our meal. While they were served hot and evidently fresh from the frier, they were absolutely flavorless. Ugh!

                          LOL, I've seen seventy-year-olds dip fries into chocolate milkshakes.

                          It's like people who pour Heinz57 sauce all over a steak and the old joke: do you want a steak with that sauce?

                          This sounds like the fries are a weird type of casserole, nothing wrong with that.

                              Dare I say it,
                              But I actually tend to like the KFC fries here.
                              I find the McD's fries FAR too salty!.
                              Also I've found that McD's fries go cold a lot quicker than KFC fries for some wierd reason.

                                I have a friend that always asks for his fries at McD's without salt. That way they fry a new batch and the ones you get are fresh. Salt them yourself.

                                  Count this as another vote for the Original Hot Dog Shop or "O" here in Pittsburgh. Outstanding fries and in ridiculously large quantities.

                                    Listed in another thread here, the famous All American Drive In, located in Massapequa NY has great fries. Fresh cut in the stand, fried 'til they're brown, served hot, very good.
                                    Also the original Nathan's over in Coney Island, 'specially if you ask for them well done, dark brown with crunchy bits in the bottom of the bag. Good!

                                      If you happen to go to California Adventure in Disneyland, CA, then I highly recommend stopping at Award Weiners in the Hollywood part of the park. They have pretty good dogs, but the shoestring fries are the best I have had, hot and not too salty.

                                      My favourite FF fries are Roy Rogers curly fries. The first time I had them was at a buffet style(ish) rest stop, and I almost completely finished them before I paid. I also like KFC's potato wedges.

                                      I don't get why everyone is saying how awful BK's fries are, I think that they are definately better than Wendy's, and if I stop there at the right time, they are better the McD's

                                        I also love the fries at Matt Murphy's Pub in Brookline Village, MA. They're crispy on the outside, creamy on the inside and they serve it with their own housemade ketchup. Johnny's Luncheonette in Newton Center, MA makes some wicked sweet potato fries with a tarragon-mustard dipping sauce. Crazy good! Don't car much for FF fries as they always seem to have a nasty, chemical type of after taste.

                                            Wendy's fries dipped in their chocolate frosty are pretty darn tastey to us. We do get some funny looks however but that salty-sweet combo do it for me.

                                              That sounds nasty.

                                              Still contend that the Belgians make the best fries.

                                                I have to agree, I think In and Out in Cal. has the best fries going..They use a great frier, the Kennabec Potato, most are sold for potato chips..They have a different fat content than most potatoes. When we had Koblick's Fine Food of Ferndale Ca. A farmer near-by grew them. I'd buy 50 sacks at a time and hold them in a cooler, cut them, wash them and Fry them..They are the best and that is what In and out Uses..

                                                  I stopped at an In and Out on a recent trip to Phoenix. The fries were very good - much better than the other burger chains. However - they still do not equal some of the best fries I have eaten where they took the time to use the cooking technique where the fries get cooked twice.

                                                  Fiddler's Green in Winter Park, FL and Argyle in Kearney, NJ come to mind as places that seemed to cook their fries (chips) this way.

                                                    I still think Nathans have the best tasting Fries, even at franchise locations.

                                                        Regional: Pal's, hands down!

                                                        National: Steak 'n' Shake

                                                        but any french fries have to be freshly made, otherwise they're not worth the calories.

                                                          I have always been partial to Steak 'n Shake fries as well. They seem to always be thin and crisp with just the right amount of salt. They are perfect for dipping in the pot of beans that you ordrered on your Steakburger platter.

                                                            I make the best Fries in Ontario.
                                                            My fries are so good they need to come with a warning " highly Addictive Product"

                                                            I use Vegetable oil and premium potatoes.. My fries go through a 2 stage frying process that makes them nice and crispy on the outside and light and fluffy on the inside with a beautifull golden colour...I also sell Hot Dogs,Sausages and burgers...
                                                            I open every day at 11am and close when I am tired..LOL
