“Not so good”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

A small chipstand across the bridge with ample parking. Everyone in this town loves their Wes' chips, but while the quantity of fries received is abundant the quality is not. Unfortunately the fries leave a terrible aftertaste in your mouth. I'm assuming it's from the oil that they cook them in. It seems to coat your mouth and dull your taste buds. The service was great though.

“SIMPLY THE BEST!”
Reviewed June 18, 2012

Enjoy fry 'stands', tried many. Wes' is the one!!! NO grease stain on paper bags, don't know they're secret but can't be beat! Only 1 drawback, wish they had gravy.

“Over blown”
Reviewed June 16, 2012

The french fries here are nothing special, very ordinary as a matter of fact. There are other chip trucks in the 'prior that are as good or better. Menu is very limited, fries or more fries.

“No Question - Best Fries Ever!”
Reviewed October 31, 2011

We read reviews and decided to stop at Wes' Fries in Arnprior after a leisure drive through the countryside. Wow. There were so many smiling faces ... and we soon found out why. Although this is a small fry stand by the side of a major route, it has a big reputation. No frills, the menu offers only fries and soft drinks. Other customers brought their own sandwiches and drove here to enjoy them with Wes' fries. Yes, you heard right. Speaks volumes. They fill the bag half full so you can dress them up with salt and/or vinegar, then they top the bag up and you dress them up again. We really enjoyed them and would have gladly enjoyed another order, but we decided to save it for another reason to come back! A number of picnic tables are scattered around the property. A highly recommended stop.
