“Chips nothing more nothing less”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

Good chips good sauce nuff said!
Not the best ever but pretty good.... If you're strolling in the area, pick up a cone. But don't make a major detour believing that these are the best chips in the world or you may be slightly underwhelmed

“Disappointed...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013 via mobile

What is all the hype about this place?! Dragged my partner in the cold rain, to wait in a long queue for old re-fried chips. Bitterly disappointed the chips are not crunchy, but hard. The sauce however was the only nice thing about the chips. Do not come here for crunchy fresh chips.

Dear guest,

We see that it's you first review on Tripadvisor. You are the first writer who give Vleminckx Fries a two star review, the other 130 reviews are more satisfied about the chips and the service . Our Fries are freshly made and baked. Thank you for the compliment about the sauce.
I hope you enjoyed your visit to Amsterdam.

Best regards, Vleminckx Fries

“Amazing Dutch Fries!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

These are just perfect...what else is to be aid. They have a selection of toppings including traditional mayo, ketchup, and a curry sauce. All that I tried were amazing. The fries were PERFECTLY cooked. The only way this could be better would be a place to eat them. It's just a hole in the wall and there's no place to sit. Must eat and run! Great price, great value, great stop!

“A classic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

I try not to eat deep fried food, so when I do, it has to be excellent. This is the place that has the best fries in Amsterdam. I think so, and many of my friends. So if you want to have a piece of local life, get a paper cone filled with awesome fries here. We Dutch eat it with mayonaise, or my own fav: mayonaise and peanut sauce...great stuff , the best food guilty pleasure in town.
