“Best chips EVER”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

Ok, so they only sell chips. You'll be disappointed if you want a burger, hotdog, steak or anything else.

I guess that because they only sell chips, this is the reason their chips are the best you'll find anywhere.

Get a large portion (in the traditional Dutch paper cone), plaster on the mayonesse, take it with your little plastic fork to the National Monument at Dam Square, and enjoy!

“Very satisfying”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

We were feeling the pangs of hunger, and these frites totally hit the spot. They're everything you could want in a fry. There are lots of different sauce options, so I guess that leaves me no choice but to try them all.

“Really really good fries”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013 via mobile

I like my fries. And I really liked these fries a lot. Regarding the hype and so on, well, where do fries go on from very good or excellent?
You will enjoy the fries, certainly so.
Except for that, it is nothing more to it.
Will certainly pop by again when in Amsterdam

“Always a party! Best fries ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013 via mobile

When in Amsterdam, do as the Amsterdammers do: at least I never manage to be in town without visiting this place. Simple and straightforward, no hassle, just taste fries as they should be.
