Huge serving size and variety of sauces

Be prepared to stand in line - it's a popular spot in the Markt. The fries are unique: thick-cut, served in a paper cone and available with a large variety of thick sauces. I tried the Americano and it was nice and spicy for my taste. Admittedly, it was too much and I couldn't finish even a small... read more

These frites are promised to be the authentic Frites with Sweet Mayo by our Belgian hosts. They pointed out to us the lack of line in the other fry places, while Restaurant Reitz had a steady line all afternoon. The fries were really good, one daughter loved them while the other was ok with them, preferring the stand-by ketchup.

A highly recommended place for some Frits. Very generous portions with lots of choices for toppings. I had zuurvlees (a Maastricht stew).

the chips are home cut and the mayo is something special...you can't sit inside with just a bag of fries so if you don't mind waiting in the long line (especially on marketdays wed+fri) go inside and enjoy yr fries with extra's in a booth

Unusual type of 'friet shop'. People prepared to stand in a row for such good zakje friet. No other shop around there can offer the same.

Heard about them, had to try them and they were OK - nothing really outstanding about them but nothing really bad either. so I guess they were worth saying your tried them. North American guests a heads up - you pay for ketchup here

You'll see references to how great Reitz's "frietjes" are in many travel guides. There are claims of long queues clamoring to get a taste of their delicious fries, however there was no one waiting when we went. Perhaps people have wised up. The fries are kind of shrivelled, luke warm and greasy. You could probably get better tasting ones at... More

I live in this city but never had fries from this famous place, while people que up to get fries here (que of 30 people is no exception here) Once I finally had my fries I thought they were dry (like old patatoes) greasy and not worth the wait. They are recommended by lots of places, but being from the... More
