Wes' Chips has been a MUST for our family every spring, and anytime we're up in the "Prior" area. As usual, we weren't disappointed! Great chips! Prices are reasonable too. Love Wes'!

The real name for this food truck is Wes' Chips. I don't know what their secret is, but I have never eaten more delicious French fries. And that is ALL they sell. No gravy. No.poutine. No shredded pork. Just golden, crispy, HOT chips. (And a very small selection of bottled water or canned soft drinks) Be warned: one serving will... More

Plain fries. Plain Fries. No gravey. No poutine. Just plain fries. Why mess with 40 years of making the best fries in the Ottawa Valley. Great anytime of day/night. Just plain fries.

My husband's family visits this rustic snack shack like it's some sort of fried food mecca. They won't let me give it anything but 5 stars. The fries are very very good. All they need is a little vinegar.

As they say, if you only do one thing, make sure you do it really really well. One of winter's hardships is having Wes' closed.

Wes' is an Arnprior fixture. Walk up window and picnic tables under the trees. Very good fries, nice young staff. Ask them for the malt vinegar, because they don't put it out. Closed all winter.

The opening of Wes's Fries is always a sign of Spring, however, one couldn't really call it a Restaurant, people line-up outside a small shack, buy their fries and either eat them at the few picnic tables, in their car or take them and leave. and I think that they also sell hotdogs, it is similar to the chip wagons...

This is a classic fry place. What makes it different is when you order your fries, they fill it up halfway at first, let you put in ketchup or whatever you like, and then put the rest of the fries in. This way you don't just have the condiments on top! Also good location, close to water and central arnprior.

I don't get it. This place keeps coming up number 1 but each I give it another shot I get the same refried fries that seem to have sat around after there 12th refry. My wife got nothing but little pices and I got a mix of crumbs and a few large ones. Seriously this is what we get when... More

Small chip stand serving constantly amazing fries. Don't come here expecting a large road side menu, Wes' sells fries and pop/water and that's it, adding to its popularity amongst Ottawa valley tourists and residents. Open only half the year and always busy this is a definite must for anyone passing through arnprior, or a nice day trio for those looking... More
