“25 minute wait!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

The chips are very good,but no better than many other fritehuis in Amsterdam. I can't actually believe I queued for 25 minutes and paid over 5 euros for chips and mayonnaise,but I did,and I'm still a little in shock. Never mind.

Dear guest,

thank you for your reaction. Our fries are freshly made and baked. You are the first writer who says he long had to wait. The other 194 reviews are more satisfied about the chips and the service. Our service is very fast and the customer have to wait for a few minutes. (25 minutes is not possible).

We hope you enjoyed your visit to Amsterdam.

Best regards, Vleminckx Fries

“Good Belgium Fries”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013

Its the sauces that make a difference here. The fries are good and fresh, but whats really nice are all the different sauces they offer to put on the fries. Its messy, there's no where to sit, so you walk and eat them. Make sure you take lots of napkins. Too bad we couldn't get a beer to go with, would have been a nice complement to the fries

“Chips nothing more nothing less”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 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

“Follow the crowd”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

As far removed from a UK chippy as you can get and all the better for it. We were attracted by the huge queue and can see why they were there - the chips/frites.fries/whatever are amazing, and complimented by so many sauces the locals must never get bored. Certainly beats chippy sauce in the UK.
