I don't live far from OOB, so I've been coming here since I was a little kid. Never had a bad experience! Crisp and crunchy on the outside while the inside melts in your mouth.

Pier Fries has been around for what seems like forever. Back in the day, the fries were so good and so much in demand that ketchup wasn't even offered, just salt and vinegar. Over the years, as the original owners passed on, the quality has suffered slightly. The oil could be changed more often and the young men working the... More

They've been here forever and not by accident. The fries made fresh from fresh potatoes, crisp on the outside, creamy on the inside, perfect in every way. You can ask for them extra brown, but I recommend that you don't try to out-expert the experts!

There's always a line because no other place compares to how good the fries are. Piping hot, medium length, just right crisp. Have to have them with vinegar and salt. Stick around the stand to add more condiments.

Seriously, how could you mess up fries?? These were cooked to order, hot and tasty. Perfect snack for the beach. Worth getting for sure. They don't salt them, and I appreciated being able to measure that out myself.

Yum yum YUM! My family that lives in the area told me how good these fries were and they did not disappoint! Hot, just the right amount of salt and vinegar and just perfect. If you're there at night for the fireworks in the summer it's great to have some fries while waiting for the show!
