This was my second time to visit Pommes Frites in NYC and it was just as good as the first time. It is a hole-in-the-wall kind of place that usually has a line out in front. This was our dinner - just French Fries- and it was so very, very good.

Everyone loves fries...most people have loved them since they were children. Pommes Frites is like the grown up version. With their thick cut Belgian Fries, it is sure to please even the most voracious patron. But the size of the fries aren't what makes it grown up...it's the variety of sauces that is sure to please...You would be ashamed to... More

TravelChica4, there's nothing childish about great food! Beyond the obvious deliciousness, we'd like to think our frites bring people together -- folks of all shapes and sizes, races and creeds -- waiting in line for a cone of freshly fried potato goodness. Thanks for taking a moment to share what you love about frites and sauces! Join us again soon,... More

I create my own person foodie tour each time I visit the city. We were spending our time in the Lower East and I saw this on the map and had to try it. Loved it!! The smallest size was still large (especially when you are eating your way through the city) but I guarantee you we ate every bit... More

We made a stop at Pommes Frites as part of our East Village Food and Culture Tour this spring (2014). It was fun: At first sight, this narrow hole-in-the wall comes across as a little stuffy and uninviting, especially with the huge potato sacks stacked around. But once you receive your order, it'll be all worth it. Jut to give... More

It may look like a hole-in-the wall but it will be THE BEST French Fries you will ever have in your life! Fresh cut and cooked right in front of you and served with any kind of dipping sauce. Fries are all they do and they are the best!

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

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
