Best fries in Chicago

u.of.c. eddie | May 6, 2008 07:25 AM

Which places have your favorite french fries/pommes frites/chips in Chicago? I'm looking to explore a little. I greatly enjoy the ones at Weiner & Still Champion in Evanston and Hopleaf in Andersonville. Gage had some nice fries too. They all do a good job of generating that soft, puffy, full interior with a coating of crispness on the outside (due to the double-frying method that I am biased toward). But I've also loved the limp fries at Al's because you can taste the sweetness of the potato.

Any thoughts?
