“The best fries in Amsterdam!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

I heard about Vleminckx Fries before I left for Amsterdam and knew it was somewhere I just had to try.

The fries are out of this world! Awesome! I went back three times while I was there. Having fries with mayonnaise is a Dutch treat. They come hot from the fryer and include a cute wooden pick to eat them with. Don’t miss this great snack while you’re in Amsterdam.

“The Best Fries In The World.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Every time I visit Amsterdam, I have to get me some fries from Vleminckx.

Crispy and Delicious. The best in the World. Can't recommend them enough!

Usually take my fries with plain mayo, but the green pepper mayo is delicious as well.

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013 via mobile

The fries, incredible. The sauces, even better. My wife and I shared a large order. I asked the young man for a recommendation since there were many topping choices. He asked if we like spicy....we do. He added a spicy curry sauce. Unbelievable ! Highly recommended. Make the trip. We walked over a mile to get them.

“Fries and sauce were good, but did not warrant the long walk.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

I walked from my hotel near the train station to try the fries at Vleminckx. They were definitely good fries, and the peanut satay sauce was good, but it was not worth a trip to get them. If you are near the museums and want fries, this place is probably as good or better than any other.
