Few people can resist snacking on golden delicious french fries, and Vermont has some of the best fries you’ll ever eat. Here we put twists on our spuds by using all kinds of toppings and dipping sauces, and no two places do their fries the same. There are lots of appealing aspects of the fry – they’re easy to eat, salty, crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside to name just a few, and like peanut butter and jelly, fries go perfectly with some of our favorite meals. Let’s check out a few of the places that have fries so good that you almost can’t handle it.
19. Roxie’s - 151 Route 4A E, Castleton
Fries are sold by the 1/2 pint, pint or quart and boy are they good! You have the option of adding chili, gravy or cheese for a little more, but rest assured, these don't need anything extra. We wish it was open year-round, but it's a summer staple for the locals and is well worth the stop when it's in season.
18. Mr. Darcy’s Bar & Grill - 31 Rt 103 S, Ludlow
Check out this farmhouse burger - bacon, caramelized onions & cheddar. The hardest choice to make here is whether to go for the truffle fries or the sweet potato fries. Decisions, decisions.
17. Whetstone Station Restaurant and Brewery - 36 Bridge St, Brattleboro
Located on the Vermont-New Hampshire border (literally), the hands down favorite here is the Peanut Butter Burger, and you simply can't have a burger without fries. Who would have thought? Be ready for a fantastic beer selection, too!
16. Cajun’s Snack Bar - 1594 Vt Route 100, Lowell
While Cajun's in only open in the summer, the fries here are so good that they couldn't be left out. This place is a summer staple for locals and visitors alike, and no one ever leaves disappointed!
15. Two Brothers Tavern - 86 Main St, Middlebury
At the root of every great poutine is french fries, and boy are they good at Two Brothers Tavern. Potato perfection!
14. Burke’s Publick House - 482 Vermont 114, East Burke
Great vegetarian options available with your golden fries at Burke's Publick House. This little gem near Burke Mountain also has a fantastic beer selection. Cheers!
13. Dot’s Restaurant - 3 W Main St, Wilmington
Whether you eat here for breakfast, lunch or dinner, we suggest you order a big ol' heap of their delicious french fries. Fries with their award winning chili? Absolutely!
12. Cornerstone Pub & Kitchen - 47 N Main St, Barre
The fries can only be rivaled by their out-of-this-world Mac & Cheese. Be sure to check out the "Whispering Statue" across the street and the world's largest zipper, which is two blocks down the street.
11. Blue Paddle Bistro - 316 US Rt 2, South Hero
The locals are lucky to have a place like the Blue Paddle Bistro, and for everyone else - it's worth a drive! Delicious fries accompany some fantastic meals such as the gorgonzola crusted filet mignon (pictured) or the the glazed salmon on cranberry risotto. Delicious!
10. Burger Barn - Jeffersonville
This little place serves up some big burgers! Hand made fries and onion rings will keep you coming back to the window to order more. The Nutty Goat is definitely worth a try with a side of fries - maple candied walnuts, bacon, goat cheese and caramelized onions. Be aware that it's cash only.
9. Lil’ Britain - 116 North St, Bennington
The fries here are superb and the fish & chips combo is one of the best you'll get this side of the Atlantic.
8. Hazel - 75 Elliot St, Brattleboro
Whether you like poutine, gravy or plain french fries, Hazel will deliver potatoes done like no other.
7. Roots the Restaurant - 51 Wales St, Rutland
Roots is a great place for some good old farm to table dining. Loads of healthy options, but if you want to indulge on something other than their amazing fries, the cheese fondue is a must!
6. Worthy Burger - 56 Rainbow St, South Royalton
They may be named after their burgers, but they are known for their fries! Spicy ketchup and pesto mayo sauces for your parmesan fries? Heaven!
5. Al’s French Frys - 1251 Williston Rd, South Burlington
Al's French Frys is the kind of place you remember from your childhood - and it really hasn't changed since then. 50's diner vibe, cafeteria style service, and some of the best hand cut you'll ever taste. There is plenty of vinegar here for splashing on your "Frys."
4. J.Morgan’s Steakhouse - 100 State St, Montpelier
Just because it's a a steakhouse, don't be afraid to try their lobster club. It's perfectly paired with a generous helping of golden and delicious fries.
3. The Bench - 492 Mountain Rd, Stowe
The Bench certainly knows how to do comfort food right! Whether you get the poutine (with Bridport cheddar curds and ale gravy) or truffle fries (with shaved parmesan cheese and herbs), you'll see that this place knows how to do fries right!
2. Black Sheep Bistro - 253 Main St, Vergennes
Entrees at the Black Sheep Bistro come with family style fries for the whole table - complete with sweet basil, garlic, and ketchup dipping sauces.
1. Prohibition Pig - 23 S Main St, Waterbury
Five words: Truffle oil duck fat fries. The fries alone have these happy customers coming back again and again. Their bacon BBQ sauce is out of this world - put it on their pork sandwich or any of the burgers and it's a meal you'll be dreaming about until the next time you go back.
