HELLO FOOD LOVERS 

Chris and I are back at it — on the hunt to find the best fries out there in Chicago. We have asked our good friends (Lauren, Esther and Jack) to join us again for this third and FINAL round! I can’t imagine NOT having their help. Honestly I find it hard to believe that Chris and I didn’t turn into a potato or have major clogged arteries after going on our first round at the beginning of the year by OURSELVES?!  We have mapped out our Part 3 tour around the downtown area and had listened to some recommendations from some close friends.

Luxbar

Location: 18 E Bellevue Pl, Chicago, IL 60611
Beautiful dine in restaurant in the heart of Gold Coast — known for their truffle fries! Our waitress gave us an order of a basket of truffle fries and side of a regular fry. Very crispy fries but the garlic aioli on the side could have been better.

LUXBAR - fry

M Burger

Location: 161 E Huron St, Chicago, IL 60611
Fast food chain — known for their burgers fries and shales! We had ordered a regular fry and their cheese fries. The cheese fries are very light and not too heavy! Easy to pour, best fast food fries around.

Doc B’s

Location: 100 E Walton St, Chicago, IL 60611
Fries come in a smaller serving but the seasoning on the fries makes up for it. Slightly thinner than a steak fry but with the same smush factor, these fries could make a great addition to your entrée.

DOC B'S - fry

Portillo’s

Location: 100 W Ontario St, Chicago, IL 60654
Fast food chain, home of America’s favorite Chicago-style hot dogs! These delicious crinkle cut fries can be paired best with a side of cheese. Fun atmosphere for the family.

Point and Feather

Location: 113 W Hubbard St, Chicago, IL 60654
Impromptu restaurant bar that we had stumbled upon because the Public House was very packed BUT this ended up being one of our top favorites. A fun atmosphere and you can grab a drink and play darts. Crunchy fries came with an assortment of condiments — jalapeño, ranch, and ketchup!

POINT AND FEATHER - fry
