Tasty Tuesdays: Best French Fries in Austin
Thank you all again for sharing your thoughts on the best burgers in Austin! Almost 60 of you relayed your strongly held beliefs by commenting, tweeting, and sharing via Facebook. I’ve always thought it would be fun to have a weekly special post but never knew what that should be. The light bulb went off today and Tasty Tuesdays is born!
Each Tuesday, I’ll gather your feedback on your favorite dishes, restaurants, and more. It only made sense to follow up our hamburger experiment with one of my favorite foods ever, FRENCH FRIES!
How much do I love french fries? In elementary and middle school, when asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, my answer was usually “French Fry Maker.” My parents would joke that they expected to find me turned into a french fry overnight some day.
Growing up, my favorite three french fry providers included my mom (we would cut fresh potatoes and fry ‘em in a french fry maker at home), McDonald’s, and Houston’s.
In Austin, I’ve enjoyed fries at Roaring Fork, Enoteca Vespaio, Chick-Fil-A, Trio, Woodland, and Opal Divines. I enjoy my fries dipped in vinegar, ketchup, or chipotle sauce, in a cone, crispy, salty, alongside steak, and with lots of napkins. I think the fries (and everything else I’ve tried) at Hyde Park are an insult to taste buds. I hear good things about the fries at Mighty Fine.
