The fries are great and the sauces are plentiful. I opt for the traditional mayo but there are many different ones to try.

This Belgium fry place is really good. They have so many different dips to put your hot, fresh fries into. It is a great late night snack as well but the line can get pretty long!

If you like real Belgium Pomme Frites, this is probably the closest you’ll find in the USA. Though I always get the regular frite sauce (it’s pretty close to the European style I love), they also have a variety of dipping sauces from which to choose. And since they’re near NYU, they are open late - so you can satisfy... More

Jennifer, we love the authentic, classic Belgian-style frites too! That's why we opened our shop, to bring that unique and delicious treat to our friends here in NYC. Thanks for vouching for their quality--it's great to hear they reminded you of the ones across the pond. We hope you loved your visit to NYC, Suzanne and Omer More

You have to stop here and get a snack if you are in the City area!! Try the Peanut Satay!! The Hot Chili paste and the Mexican ketchup is amazing. Great staff and great atmosphere!!

I love Pommes Frites and make it a point to stop by there anytime I am visiting NYC! Choosing from all the delicious sauces is my favorite part. I would absolutely LOVE if you opened up a location in Philadelphia!!!

Thanks for spreading the word about us on TripAdvisor, April! Do you make it out to NYC often? We'd love to be in Philly too, but we don't have any immediate plans to expand. Who knows what the future holds? In the meantime, we'll look forward to seeing you whenever you're in town. Best wishes, Suzanne and Omer More

This place has AMAZING fries with tones of sauce. It was so good that we ordered another large after me and my GF finished our first large fries. I would also recommended spending a little more to get various sauces.

itsxjackie, thanks for making our day with this short and sweet little review! We try to be amazing everyday, so it's great to hear we're hitting the mark.

With their special prep for French fries accompanied with gourmet sauces one can make a meal of these spuds entirely. They say eat where the locals do so do not be shocked by the line when you arrive as they will get your served in a snap. Give it a go!

Out late in the EV? Hungry for something but tired of getting the usual slice? This joint is the best - get three dipping sauces (huge menu to choose from, but the truffle is one of my favorites) and split with a couple of friends and you'll be golden. Perfect if you had a long Friday or Saturday night and... More

Suncoastbiker, thanks for making time to come check us out during your visit! It's a shame you didn't get to try out our poutine, but you probably get plenty of that back home. Anytime you're in town be sure to come back--there are many more sauces you have to try. Safe travels, Suzanne and Omer More
