Three words. Cheese, fries, and green onions. It truly doesn’t get more satisfying than that. Midwood Smokehouse has got crispy crinkle fries made golden brown and smothered with Midwood’s homemade pimento cheese. Then, they’re topped with tangy green onions. But it gets even better. For an additional $4 add spicy chorizo or chopped pork and for an additional $7 you can add delicious smoked brisket.

Bad Daddy’s is doing their fries 3 ways: hand cut, sweet potato, and truffle parmesan, so you might have a really difficult time choosing. We’d recommend giving them all a go if you can, but the sweet potato are thick, crispy, and sweet. Get them on the side of one of their juicy, gourmet burgers like the Pastrami or the Western, and fall into food coma heaven.

Who knew that pesto & brie could be such a delicious combination when topped on Crepe Cellar’s golden, crispy french fries. At Crepe Cellar’s, the fries are hand cut and double fried for that extra crispiness, and come two ways: either regular with salt or flavorful pesto, creamy brie, and fresh chopped tomatoes. If you order the steak & frites or the fish & chips, you also get a big heaping side of regular golden fries.
