Posted August 8

Alabama

Flip Burger Boutique, Birmingham, Alabama

“Great place! First off let me say that the view outside is just wonderful. When you walk in the artwork is amazing. We got there right before closing and they didn't rush our service. Our server was polite! He recommended "Poutine" for those of you who haven't been yet it is: beef fat fries, cheese curds, chorizo gravy, fried egg! May I just say YUM!” - Laura J., Yelp

Alaska

F Street Station, Anchorage, Alaska

“The fish and chips are literally the best I've ever had in my life. The fish is fresh and light -- like pillows of deliciousness. The French fries are crispy with the perfect amount of salt. Service is fast. You can see the whole meal cooked in front of you. Show up hungry and get the full sized version -- you won't regret it.” - Cynthia L., Yelp

Arizona

Zinburger, Phoenix, Arizona

“And the fries and sides stand up to the burger. We ordered our favorite, zucchini fries. That's healthy, right? Not really, but the battered, fried zucchini sticks sprinkled with parmesan are amazing.” - Howard E., Yelp

“Truffle fries are to die for. Amazing salad, amazing burgers, amazing atmosphere... no complaints here!” - Julia S., Yelp

Arkansas

The Root Café, Little Rock, Arkansas

“Excellent quality, perfectly cooked and spiced and plenty of it. I had a hamburger (maybe the best tasting beef burger I've had) that comes with a side of greens and some dressing (very simple but very delicious), soup of the day (onion of some type...can't remember the name), sweet potato fries and a praline and chocolate chip cookie. First of all, I don't particularly care for sweet potato fries, but ordered a large for the table and I would actually order them again.” - Velma D., Yelp

California

Smoke’s Poutinerie, Los Angeles, California

“Let's get to what matters, this dish is not for the faint of heart - it's French fries with cheese curds and gravy!!! I'm not a big fan of French fries but I LOVE cheese and cheese curds!!! and gravy is ok too, so combine the three and you're winning in my book.” - Candace L., Yelp

"Last night, my friend and I stopped by Smoke's to savor the goodness that is poutine. Smoke's did NOT disappoint :)" - Stephanie U., Yelp

Colorado

Tag, Denver, Colorado

“The duck fat fries lightly dusted with salt, sugar, and cayenne pepper made my boyfriend's day. Each one has a slightly different seasoning balance which keeps them interesting.” - Brigitte O., Yelp

“Wow. Just a great place. Had the TAG Kobe burger with egg, fried chicken skin, bacon. My was it delicious but let me tell you about the fries. French fries cooked in duck fat. One of the best fries I've had. No Joke. This place is worth it. GO HERE!” - Frank D., Yelp

Connecticut

B&F Burgers and Frites, Salisbury, CT

“A few burgers, chicken sandwiches, a salad, a soup, and a bunch of orders of fries later we were all in heaven. My burger was perfect. The caramelized onions delicious. My wife's salad was also delicious. B&F seems to be particularly proud of their fries or "frites" as they call them. There are four or five sauces, but we all ordered them without. Just a little salt and pepper. I've never had better, the pier fries in Old Orchard Beach are a close second. Despite the 90 min ride, we'll be back. If you live closer you should be there more often!” - Chuck D., Yelp

Delaware

Two Stones Pub, Newark, Delaware

“I ordered a side of the sweet potato fries that come with molasses, brown sugar, and a vanilla bourbon crema sauce. That was hands down the best pairing I've had with sweet potato fries, which was surprising bc I'm typically a savory dip kind of gal.” - Edna R., Yelp

“Worthy burger side kicks are the truffle fries and chicken wings - both artfully balanced in every way making my taste buds numb with delight.” - Nicolas N., Yelp

Florida

Café Bistro, Miami, Florida

“The Crab Bisque is the best ever!!! The French fries are delicious they have rosemary and thyme. The kalamata olive aioli is an awesome pairing to the fries.” - Xenia R., Yelp

“While the food is great, I personally LOVE the Kalamata Olive Aioli dip they serve with their fries. It's like crack. You can order whatever you want off the menu and chances are you won't be disappointed.. but give me that dang dip. Our food will come out and 100& of the time we'll always have the fries/dip before we even touch anything else on the plate.” - Irene H., Yelp

Georgia

The Fry Guy, Atlanta, Georgia

“The truck was eye-catching and the menu seemed interesting so I decided to try it out. I ordered the bacon French fries with bacon aioli and scallions and it was AMAZING.” - Gretchen T., Yelp

“I mean their fries are just amazing!! It was my first time so I went classic w the aioli dipping sauce and they were just so good. Fried to perfection and the sauce was great. Cannot wait to eat them again and get a little more crazy!!!” - Amy H., Yelp

Hawaii

W&M Bar-B-Q Burger, Honolulu, Hawaii

“Ordered the Hal's Special and fries. The fries taste just like McDonalds, if not a little better. Hal's Special was also very good.” - Travis M., Yelp

“Voted Hawaii's best. Been in business since 1952, serving up the same burgers the family started with 63 years ago. Can't go wrong with a bbq cheeseburger, fries, and green river.” - Tammy C., Yelp

Idaho

Boise Fry Company, Boise, Idaho

“Had Boise Fry Company for the first time the other evening and it was great! The fries were awesome, especially with the jalapeno seasoning. There were plenty of fries (more than I could eat), but despite the fries being the main attraction the burger was just as good!” - Jonathan H., Yelp

“We had the sweet potato fries which were the best sweet potato fries I've ever had." - Ellen B., Yelp

Benjyehuda, Chicago, Illinois

“Fries are amazing, best in Chicago for sure.” - Seth B., Yelp

“The fries are some of the best in city. I'm pretty particular about fries. For 6 years as a teenager I had a job preparing hand cut fries. Good fries should not be taken for granted. I have had fries at some of the best steak joints and burger joints in the city but I don't think any of them compare to Benjyeuda's. Sure the rest of the menu is good but don't pass on the fries." - John Y., Yelp

“Best quality burgers in town. Impressive variety, great atmosphere, and their fries are the best.” - Justin T., Yelp

“Best burger I've had in my life! I had the Trailer Trash something-or-other, and it was fantastic. Fried pickles, chicken fried bacon, fried cheese curds, and ranch. For real. We also shared the combo basket of fries, and it was some of the best poutine I've had, and that counts Canada itself. I also enjoyed the shake of the day, peach and snicker doodle. The burger even made the shake taste better. I had to have someone roll me home, but it was worth it!” - Deirdre R., Yelp

Kentucky

Hammerheads, Louisville, Kentucky

“You want to take someone out for a good meal in Louisville? You go here. The location is weird. The place is small. Prepare to wait. (but, it will be worth it.) Sweet potato fries, duck fat fries, and Grippo's fries -- all winners.” - Emily M., Yelp
