“Just go!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

There is always a line! But it's quick (they usually have 3-4 people working) and well worth the 8 min wait! The frites are cooked to perfection and the mayo and samurai sauces are delish! A must visit, especially if it's your first time having frites in Amsterdam! Their mayo is different than US mayo, so eat like a local and give it a try, your tummy will thank you for it! Check their times though! They close earlier than any of the other frites shops!

“Best patat friet in years”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014 via mobile

I stumbled upon this place as I noticed the long waiting line. Born and raised in the Netherlands but living in the Us for the last 15 years, this was worth the 10 minutes wait. Best fries I have ever had.

“Damn good fries”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

This place is damn good. The fries are cooked perfectly so that the outside has a great crisp to it while the inside tasted like a fluffy baked potato. I'm glad I was able to find this spot tucked away in an alley.

“Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

Crispy, hot and fresh fries. My favourite sauce is Oorlog (mayonnaise and peanut sauce with onions). A must try.
