Good french fries in MSP?

I know fries are a subjective topic.

But I am on the lookout for some good french fries.

Now, my personal favorite fries are from the "Fresh French Fries" booth at the MN State Fair. However these are only available for 2 weeks a year! :( I think I recall some time back someone had mentioned that the guy who was running this booth had a place locally where you could get these things all year, but IIRC this was long ago and I never was able to figure out where that place was.

What I'm NOT looking for is fries that are masked with seasoning and toppings. Just a little salt. I've been particularly annoyed that a lot of the fast food places (I don't think people think much of fast food on here!) have switched to fries with that coating/seasoning on them.

I personally prefer a hand cut "skin on" style fry. I've had good luck with Annie's Parlour in Dinkytown (and similarly its sister restaurant the Convention Grill).

Of course I don't want to discriminate against any good fries, so any cuts or styles are cool. I just don't think that adding on garlic seasoning or seasoned salt or whatever is really necessary if a fry is good in the first place.

Anyone got some tips?
