No other location in Arnprior is as well known as wes'! They've been serving up delicious fries since the 1960s.. And are just as popular now add they were then! Worth the stop!

Seriously, these are the best french fries you will ever eat. I can't even tell you what, why or how: it needs to be experienced first hand. You will return. Even if I didn't live in town: I WOULD DRIVE to get these fries!! :)

This location has long been overrated due to its previous glowing reviews in years past. The new owners have let it slide horribly but it became an institution in its heyday. It still retains that aura, but that is what it is - an aura. The chips are half ends and hard as a rock with no flavour. They are... More

I will be traveling from Saskatchewan to Ottawa this week, and I sure hope that Wes' will be open. The fries are great. Golden on the outside and soft in the center. Needs nothing but vinegar and salt.
