“Perfectly crispy fries”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014 via mobile

They only have one dish here: Belgian Fries with 20+ sauces.
The fries were made to perfection. The sauces were so-so (Belgium mayo and curry sauce).
Too bad they have any space to sit down and indulge.

“One of the best fries in Amsterdam!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

As always , very crowdy and very tasty ,the only problem is that there is no place to eat them. You have to stand on the street or find some stairs to sit on. Go for the chips and take them somewhere else!

“Best fries in Amsterdam”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

I must say, although the queue seems huge in front of this place, one must give it a shot. The fries at Vlaams Friteshuis Vleminckx are delicious and very crispy. The place is also very hygienic. They serve Belgium fries with 25 different varieties of sauces. The staffs are very friendly and active and you don’t to wait too long in the queue. I would go there again to try their fries with different sauces. All in all, it is a must for everyone.

“Best french fries in the world, but nowhere to eat them”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

Anyone going to Amsterdam should try these Vlaams Friteshuis Vleminckx French fries, which in reality are Belgian fries. The shop is in a little street right next to a major city centre shopping street. No doubt, these fries are the best I've ever eaten. I've heard that besides the two step cooking process, the secret of the taste is the fact that they always use new oil. The only problem is that there's no place to eat them other than in the middle of the street, so when it's raining, which isn't unusual in Holland, it can be a bit of a challenge.

“Top 3 fries in Amsterdam!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2014

This place always has a huge queue outside and that's because the fries are really good! If you're out shopping then you really should stop here for a snack!
(Others considered in the top 3 are Burger Bar and Manneken Pis)
