Can't wait

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.

It's a run of the mill fries stand that offers nothing but fries. The parking is poor and the quality is certainly not worth the praise it receives.

People rave about these French fries, but I don't think they are as good as people make them seem. I think people hold a lot of nostalgia to this place, either people who grew up and stopped by Wes' to get some fries before heading off to their cottages as kids, or people who grew up in the town.

This long established business west of Ottawa has been reknown for their fabulous French fries. No nonsense fries with only basic condiments (salt, vinegar and ketchup). Sizes small to XL. You won't be disappointed!! Will definitely be going again!!

Wes' is an Ottawa Valley landmark...and rightfully so. They are leg-en-dary! Warning to newbies...don't be lookin' for anything other than fries. No poutine, no hotdogs, no hamburgers. Just fries, fries and nothing but fries. (Although you can purchase pop and bottled water.) But they are delish. Be sure to put some salt and a shake of vinegar when they offer... More

It had been too long since the last vist ! Wes' is a Valley treasure that cannot be matched. Just had to stop on the way back from a meander to Bonnechere Caves, Eganville, Renfrew, Burnstown and White Lake. As usual during a pleasant mid-Sunday afternoon stop - always busy, always fast, served with half dressed before topping up, fast... More

We ride from Vars specifically for the very best tasting Wes' French Fries. The secret is out...but I've been sworn to secrecy so what I can tell you is that they take every steps to serve you the best fries period in North Arerica... and this is overwelming. Do yourself a favor, make your way over to Wes and enjoy... More

This has been the place to get French Fries in Eastern Ontario for years. Top quality spuds cooked to a golden perfection, will spoil your taste buds.
