So I recently went to a place that has great burgers - but lousy fries. Fries that suck are so ubiquitous I’ve mainly given up ordering them if there are other choices available. While that’s undoubtedly good from a health standpoint, every once in a while, a girl just really wants fries with her burger. And not soggy, oil-laden, underdone ones. Hot crispy ones with tender centers, as fries are meant to be but so seldom are.
So who manages to produce good ones on a consistent basis? While I’m mainly interested in the Chapel Hill/Durham area, Raleigh places are welcome too for those who might have the same question on the other side of the Triangle (and I’ll give a shout out to the North Ridge Pub on Falls of Neuse Road - I don’t get out there often, but their fries are fantastic and their chicken salad sandwich is pretty righteous too). I’m cool with either regular white fries or the sweet-potato variety - it’s all good (or should be).
