How do you like your fries? Regular, curly, or topped with cheese? No matter what your taste, hand cut potatoes make for a spectacular appetizer or side dish. Between restaurants and brew pubs, here are 12 places throughout Washington that offer some of the most delectable options:
1. Tipsy Cow Burger Bar, Redmond
In addition to gourmet burgers and thick milkshakes, this restaurant makes some of the most addicting fries in the state. It's tempting to try just about everything here, from their classic truffle fries to "Jacked Up Fries" made with melted Beecher's cheese and a roasted jalapeno sauce.
2. Lil Woody's, Seattle (Capitol Hill & Ballard)
If you love a good salty & sweet combo, then you're going to drool over this restaurant's options. The owner was inspired by Wendy's frosty drinks as a kid, and now offers hand-cut Idaho potato fries served with a Molly Moon milkshake for dipping purposes. If you're not a fan of the combination, they also make delicious Queso Fries!
3. Pickled Fish, Long Beach
Looking for a real game changer? This restaurant on top of the Adrift Hotel makes all kinds of unique options, like their "Dirty Dirty" fries covered in pork, goat cheese, pepperoncinis and garlic. Try them out with one of their Elk Sliders for even more flavors! Their place even overlooks the Pacific Ocean, so you'll be able to enjoy some of the best views
and best food in one sitting.
4. South Fork Public House, Pullman
Comfort food is never a bad idea, and you can always find some at this pub house in Pullman. Their golden shoestring fries perfectly compliment all of their premium burgers and sandwiches.
5. Friesenburgers, Tacoma
There's no doubt you can find great burgers and fries over at Frisko Freeze... but if you're looking for a new spot to try in Tac Town, this first-rate joint is worth a stop by for lunch. Not only are their burgers pretty impressive, but their steak fries are definitely some of the best to pair with.
6. Cafe Nola, Bainbridge Island
It's only a short walk from the Bainbridge ferry terminal to get to this charming little bistro. While you're there, be sure to try a serving of their fresh Truffle Fries made with asiago cheese, lemon aioli and kosher salt.
7. Boomer's Drive In, Bellingham
Who says fries have to be cut like strings? This drive-in north of Seattle makes world famous Sweet Potato Waffle Fries unlike anything you've ever tasted. You can even dip them in a milkshake off their menu to make a salty & sweet combo.
8. Casper Fry, Spokane
Daisy P. / Yelp
The garlic fries that this restaurant serves with every sandwich are by far some of the most delectable. Pictured is their Pulled Pork Sandwich, paired with the perfect side.
9. EZ's Burgers, Wenatchee
Besides juicy burgers, this retro joint also offers fresh Garlic Fries that will make your taste buds explode. Not literally, though...because then you wouldn't be able to enjoy one of their fabulous milkshakes to top it all off!
10. Fish Tale Brew Pub, Olympia
Sure, this brewpub in Olympia makes beers that are delicious, but have you ever tried the crispy fries they make? They'll melt in your mouth wonderfully... especially when they're paired with fish fried in Leavenworth Pilsner batter.
11. Fritz European Fry House, Bremerton
If you're hungry and waiting for the ferry in Bremerton, this is a great spot to check out! Their restaurant specializes in fresh-cut Belgian-style fries with a few excellent dipping sauces. When you're thirsty, they also serve a variety of local and imported beers to wash it all down.
12. Katsu Burger, Georgetown Seattle
One bite into a Japanese burger at this place and your mouth will be watering. Pair it with their Nori Fries seasoned with seaweed, and dip them in a wasabi dipping sauce for maximum flavor.
