Even though they’re sometimes referred to as French, fries are about as American as it gets. It’s pretty safe to say they’re our favorite side dish in the country and there’s a pretty good reason for it. They’re a perfect vehicle for sauces. They’re snackable. They’re cheap. What’s not to like? In Springfield, we’re pretty lucky to have so many amazing restaurants, lots of which have tasty fries. Let’s take a look at some of the best in town!
Black Sheep has all the elements of a great place to get fries. They have five different kinds to choose from: sea salt ’n’ pepper non-gmo fries, hey sweetie! sweet potato fries, apple ‘n’ hickory smoked non-gmo fries, salt ‘n’ vinegar non-gmo fries and truffle ‘n’ parmesan non-gmo fries. Plus, they’ve got a bunch of different sauces to try! Pick from chipotle ketchup, sriracha mayonnaise, truffle mayonnaise, ranch, honey mustard and baaahd sauce. Oh and while you’re at it, grab a delicious burger and a shake!
Pomme frites are unlike any other fries in Springfield. It’s a French take on the Americanized take on French fries. They’re fresh cut, crunchy and so good. Seasoned with a little sea salt, truffle oil and a sprinkle of parsley, they make a perfect compliment to a savory crepe. Pomme frites are served with a completely unique garlic aioli that will knock your socks off.
Ebbet’s Field has been slinging awesome hand-cut fries for decades in Springfield from its converted craftsman home restaurant on Historic Walnut Street. This is the way fries are supposed to taste. Unlike fast food fries or frozen ones, you can really tell that these are made from potatoes, which is a big plus in our book. They also accompany a vast array of fantastic sandwiches and burgers in a fun environment.
Springfield Brewing Company is a staple of downtown cuisine. They’ve got two kinds of fries and both are fantastic. The crispy seasoned fries come standard with most meals, but feel free to ask about the pub fries. They’re amazing waffle-style fries. This is one of the only places to find waffle fries in town! They’re an even better way to transfer sauce into your mouth. Plus, you can try out all the cool new dishes SBC has on the menu. They’re always trying out something on the cutting edge.
The oldest tavern in Springfield has plenty of experience under its belt in serving crave-worthy pub food. They don’t mess around with frozen junk. They hand cut all their fries and dish ’em out with a modern menu. Lindberg’s also makes it easy to take your fries to the next level with a poutine option for just $2 more. If you upgrade, you’ll get your fries slathered in some beef stock gravy and topped with cheese curds.
Two words: curlyfries. curlyfries. 417 Taphouse is another clever-as-heck restaurant that doesn’t do boring when it comes to pub food. That is perfectly embodied by their Twisted Taters. They have NINE different menu options to enjoy, all with a slew of tasty toppings to grace your buds. People come to 417Tap just for the fries, so you know they’re good.
The Grotto West Coast Grill is a great place to go for the health-conscious eater. You’ll leave full, but not feel like you need a nap after lunch or dinner. The sweet potato fries are to die for. They make the perfect compliment to a veggie burger or a salmon filet!
Ok, so you wouldn’t exactly wanna dip these in ketchup (please don’t), but how can we have a conversation about the best fries in Springfield without mentioning John Henry’s Sun Target II? It’s been in the city for nearly 40 years (purchased in 1980) and has become the quintessential piece of art in town. You can’t eat them (again, please don’t try), but they’ve gotta be in the conversation!
