Best French Fries In Austin

If you are what you eat, then I would be a French fry. If only I could profess my love for fried potatoes, whether thinly sliced, wedges, crinkle-cut, curly, topped with garlic, smothered with cheese, or dipped in housemade aioli.

French fries are my weakness and if they’re on the menu, you betcha I’m ordering them. I love fries so much that I even made my own fries tee!

Here are my favorite and the best French fries in Austin.


Hopdoddy truffle fries


My favorite fries in Austin are hands down Hopdoddy’s truffle fries with extra truffle sauce and chipotle ketchup! Along with a side of Primetime burger and caramel and sea salt milkshake.

Le Politique’s pommes frites were the reason why this blog post received a 2017 refresh. Crispy, salty, and overall addicting when dipped in the garlic aïoli.

Happy Lobster Truck Angry Fries


There’s nothing angry about these fries but they’re called the angry fries at Happy Lobster Truck. Well, I guess I’ll be angry if you stole them from me. French fries, hot giardiniera, cheese sauce, angry sauce, and Maine lobster.

Chilantro BBQ kimchi fries

Chi’lantro BBQ

If you haven’t had Chi’lantro’s famous kimchi fries, you haven’t lived. Choose from ribeye beef, spicy pork, spicy chicken, soy-glazed chicken, or tofu, caramelized kimchi, cheddar + Monterey jack, onions, cilantro, sesame seeds, sriracha, and magic sauce.

Black Sheep Lodge

I met up with a friend for drinks at Black Sheep Lodge and we randomly ordered the French fries from the trailer parked in the back and the crinkle fries were surprisingly the best I’ve had.

If you’re on West 6th after a night of drinking the trash fries at Holy Roller will be your savior. French fries smothered with green chili, sunny side up egg, sour cream, corn, lime, Cotija cheese, jalapeno, and cilantro.

Even though the fries at Josephine House aren’t available à la carte, you sure won’t be complaining about the Josephine house burger with Grafton cheddar and harissa aïoli.

Sala & Betty French Fries

Sala & Betty

The crispiest fries award goes to Sala & Betty on Airport Blvd. The fries are so crispy that they are almost translucent. You can order the fries à la carte, or you can enjoy them in the Mister T sandwich. We’ve been obsessed with Sala & Betty lately, ordering the chicken dinner and French fries via Amazon Prime (free delivery!).
