“Best fries in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

Best fries in Amsterdam. This is not a restaurant, just a place where you pick your fries and eat them. They taste wonderful.

“Yummy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014

These fries are fresh, hot, delicious and not at all greasy. You can choose from about 20 different sauces.

There is nowhere to sit and always a line outside but that just demonstrates their popularity.

We'll definitely be back before the end of our visit to Amsterdam.

“Go there for the Belgian mayo!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2014

I found this place encouraged by a local bartender in the Red Light District many years ago. I go back every time I'm in town. There's a line usually filled with locals and that's a good sign. My husband and I shared a medium and it was a great little meal. It comes with one sauce but we added another one side by side for a little more. I say get the Belgian mayo and the joppie sauce which is THE local favorite. Visit the Dampkring famous from Oceans 12 right around the corner first because they won't allow the fries.
