Awesome Chips

Wes' chips are piping hot, perfectly done fries. Clean and well run! It's owned now by a lady whose sister owns the Dairy Queen a few steps away, perfect decadence!

The fries are good, but that's the only good thing about the place... the service really does suck and the shack that they cook the fries in makes you feel like you're getting gross food.. luckily they're above average fries have kept them afloat this long

I was born in Arnprior, and I make a point of visiting Wes' chips whenever I visit. Don't forget you get to "dress" them half way. Yummy.

I went for the last open day of the year. There was a long line (30 min) to get served. The fries were very good. They give the fries when the bag is half full, so you can add vinegar and salt, and then they top it up. No mayo, just vinegar, ketchup and salt. Nice gesture. As it is... More

It's hard to add anything more to what other people have already said. We were here about 8 years ago and the fries were just as good then. The place is always busy, including when we stopped at 4:30pm, and there are plenty of picnic tables. I appreciate them allowing me to add condiments halfway before filling up the box.... More

The very best of the very best French Fries. Don't come for Poutine, Hot Dogs, Chuckwagons, etc. It is a French Fry Truck and they are very, very good. Probably been stopping by Wes' now for well over 30 years and they never disappoint!

If you like fresh French fries that are cooked to perfection, GO HERE. So good. They also always offer you to put stuff halfway (a must) so that your French fries are topped up from top to bottom. I drown mine in salt and vinegar because, why not, which only makes them that much tastier. And, although I am a... More

My boyfriend and I went exploring in the Ottawa Valley and tried these on recommendation! Fresh, tasty, hot and crispy! So delicious!

Theses are the best fries in the Ottawa Valley. You can't beat the freshness; while I was waiting for my order, the staff were taking whole peeled potatoes and slicing them. They were hot, and golden. It's the only thing they do... no burgers or hot dogs, no poutine, not even gravy. Only one downfall, is that they close after... More

When we moved to Arnprior in October of last year, we were told to try Wes' chips. The only problem is we moved into our home on Thanksgiving weekend, and he closed up for the season that weekend. We had to wait until the Spring to try the fries. They were worth the wait! Hot, perfectly cooked, scrumptious fries. The... More
