While burgers are great and all, french fries aren’t to be ignored. The greasy side comes in all forms: shoestring to wedges, long to short, crispy to soft, topped with spices and herbs and cheese, paired with all sorts of dips and sauces. The potato sticks can even work as main dishes, too.

In Austin, the very best french fries can be found throughout the city. There are iconic ones from Hyde Park Bar & Grill, spicy ones from Jack Allen’s Kitchen, sugary sweet fried potatoes at Workhorse Bar, shoestring fries from Justine’s Brasserie, duck fat-fries ones at Salty Sow, kimchi-topped baskets from Chi'lantro, and many more. This update includes fries from fast causal spot Sala & Betty.

Pair those fries with burgers, new, essential, and vegeterian, as well as sandwiches.

Everything below is listed in an unranked order. Is your favorite fry missing? Hit the tipline, comments underneath, or the forum.
