Best Fries Guys!!

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!! :)

Wes' French Fries have been here for years, and for a good reason...come and try them...It's worth taking a detour off Hwy 17.

Don't let the little truck turn you off. Best fries ever! Two things to remember before you visit, cash only and they serve Fries only! the do have a Large selection of pop.

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.

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!!
