Hot Frites; always a line!!

This is "the place" to get frites in Stokkel Square; there is always a line and it is worth the wait. Cooked to order and served with salt, ketchup or mayonaise.

I would go back time and again with friends to get the frites here, with any sauce you like (cocktail is the tradition I believe). Quick and delicious! A delicious warming snack for when you've finished walking around the Saturday market...

Horrible. To be avoided at all cost. Got a Mitraillette yesterday. No Sauce, no crudite, horrible Fries. And 4.8€ is not quite a bargain for that. Never again.

It is absolutely not a restaurant, but a Belgian street food located in a quiosque. It is serving fries and in addition some inedible stuff shaped to resemble real sausages and meat. Knowing that the fat commonly used in Belgium to fry the "pommes frites" consists of a beef tallow conserved with silicone (pardon: it's exactly "polymethylosiloxane") I wish everybody... More

Not overly fast but after seeing often lines of people waiting, we decided to give it a try. So, it's just fried...well...lots of things are possible but we went with just frites. Quite good. Of course nicely done hot fries are always good. Not too much salt either and good choice of sauces but all the usual ones really. They... More

Coming out of Stockel Cinema walking back to the car, its become quite a routine for us to pick up some 'frites' from this friterie on Place Dumont. Always fresh, crispy, and somehow just right. Our no.1 friterie in Brussels (and having 2 hungry teenagers, we've tried a few!). Only downside is that its so good, there's usually a queue... More

Went here with the spouse just recently based on another blog we'd read. Apparently "they" thought this better that the fry stand by the Bourse. We actually concur. The fries are quite good but they are just fries afterall so how much can one rave about that? The sauces come in quite large containers considering we ordered the small fry... More
