The best french fries in town. This place is famous in Jena for the best fries and especially the variety of sauces it serves with it for a very reasonable price. I am just in love with it. It is so popular that you have to wait for atleast half an hour in the queue for your turn, no matter... More

If you’re craving for some cheap fries and don’t mind waiting on a slow line, this might be the place for you. The fries are pretty good. Unlike the ones you get at Mickey D's, Frits Mittle fries have real potato flavor to it and won’t get limpy even after sitting under mayo toppings for a while. You can have... More

This is a small stand alone place at the begining of Wagnergasse in Jena center. The place is sorrounded by very nice restaurants with outdoor seating, but after 2 days seeing this place and the waiting lines never ended i decided to give a try. I will never regret making the 15 minutes line. The fries are just awesome, I... More

The taste of the fries and the sausages are very good. But the fries are quite greasy. Sometimes the booth emits the smell of old deep fry grease and the surrounding is not always clean which decreases rating to average only. It has the charm of an typical fries booth.

Originally I didn't like Fritz Mitte that much. I think the best time to go is when you're really hungry or drunk..but the fries taste very good. The mayo sauces are good, but honestly taste more like mayo with just a hint of what they say the flavoring is. Try to get their early or really late that way you... More

If we don't consider the intrinsic unhealthy nature of the food they sell, the fries are really good, and the mayonnaise dressing are original and homemade (so they claim). There's always a line...so plan to wait around 15minutes. Ah...it's supercheap.

Yes you will have to stand in line outside since only one person is running this place. Only food choices are currywurst and fries. They offer a variety of mayonnaise to have with your fries. The currywurst is delicious since the sauce is fruity and spicy but not runny like many other places. For 4.50€ you get fries currywurst and... More

Fritz Mitte deserves a place on any Jena city tour - it's that good! When I first came here, someone mentioned that the best food joint in the city is a fries place. That really lowered my expectation of finding good food in the city. But I was proven wrong the very first time I had the fries here. It... More

This place is well worth the wait (which is not really that long. Have some patience). Amazing fries, amazing currywurst. Not to be missed when visiting Jena.
