Best French fries ever and served with love! Don't expect anything fancy, but amazing food and the best customer service.

The Queen of Fries really is the Queen of Fries! My husband and I went on a cruise early Sept 2013 and one of the stops was in Charlottetown, PEI. After walking around the town for awhile we were headed back to the ship. The Chip Shack was positioned near the docks and we saw a line of people waiting to order food. The sign in near the window said "Queen of Fries", the menu looked promising and the prices weren't bad so we got in line too. We ordered our food and while waiting for our order, chatted with the Queen herself, who was really friendly. After getting our food, fries and a lobster roll, we walked to the park and ate. The food was fabulous. The fries, thick cut, were perfectly crisp, definitely not McDonalds, and the lobster roll was good too. She is definitely worth the stop if you are there!

We visited Charlottetown for only one night, and parked near the water to go for a walk. Seconds after getting out of our car, the Queen of Fries was waving to us and saying hello. At first I figured it was a good way to attract customers, but after chatting with her for 20 minutes while eating her excellent fries, we realized that she is a totally sincere and loving person who loves people, whether they're customers or not.

We only had a small order of fries, and since this is her specialty, it is the only criteria necessary to earn her a 5 out of 5 from me, plus bonus points for personality. The fries were crisp on the outside and soft on the inside. Perfectly done and of course, fresh cut. She also gave us some of her homemade dips to try, which were fantastic. She helped us find a brewery after we mentioned our interest in beer, and just kind of "hung out" with us. I feel like I met a new friend. If you're in Charlottetown, definitely visit this awesome lady and try her fries!

We visited the Chip Shack whilst in Charlottetown recently and it was a wonderful supper. We are from the UK and so have had one or two fish and chip suppers in our time, but this was the best ever! Superb tasting batter which Caron explained was gluten free and it was delicious. We were only in Charlottetown for the one night; had we stayed for longer we would have eaten here again! Excellent value too and with free hugs!:))
