There hasn't been anything new on this subject which is near and dear to my tum-tum.
From the Chowhound I discovered "Oinkster" in Glendale. The food was generally pretty good, but the french fries were simply outstanding.
My other favorite are the fries at Hal's in Venice.
I think Hal got it from the West Beach Cafe - both WBC and Rebecca's had the best french fries, now gone. Bruce Marder (West Beach) owns part of the Broadway Deli - which are good, but not very good, and not great.
Any other recommends?
