To all the fry fanatics out there, make sure you check out the tantalizing Belgian pomme frites at Saus. The naked pomme frite at Saus is delicious alone, but your taste buds are taken to a whole new level once one of Saus’ famous dipping sauces are tossed alongside the crispy golden frite. With sauce options ranging from Saturday Night Chive to Bacon Parmesan to Bost-Onion, you can’t simply have just one. The sauces are unique and add a whole new tasty element to the classic pomme frite. A free sauce comes with every order of pomme frites, and you can order additional sauces for a mere 75 cents. The different flavorful explosions that each sauce boasts are worth every penny! Saus is open until 2am on Fridays and Saturdays, and the pomme frite makes a perfect snack after a night out.

Well, that is surely what you will find at Kingston Station – a heaping mound of hand cut fries, oozing with heavenly amounts of truffle oil and topped with rich gruyere cheese. The small slivers of scallions that adorn the top of the plate make the perfect finishing touch. One order of these fries costs between $10-$14 and the portions are hearty. They are perfect for sharing, but one warning: they will be gone before you know it.

The unique French fry award goes to the waffle fries dusted with chili and cocoa powder at Max Brenner in Boston’s Back Bay. Definitely order a side of these fries with your meal. They are fried to an impeccable crisp and sprinkled with just the right amount of chili and cocoa powder. The medley of savory and sweet are married in a perfect union. Hold the ketchup with these fries, and instead dunk them into the sauce that sits alongside the waffle basket. At this primarily dessert-driven restaurant the French fries are a surprisingly delicious show stopper.

Garlic fans head straight over to Flash’s Cocktails on Stuart Street. Their garlic fries are something that simply can’t be missed. They are warm, crispy, and full of garlic goodness. There is no sogginess with these fries; they are continuously served hot and fresh. It seems many regulars are consistently coming back for more of this salty, garlicy, and tasty treat. These shoestring fries are finished off with a nice balance of herbs and some fresh lemon.
