10 Best Spots for Fries in Metro Phoenix

Page 4 of 4

Baked Potato Fries from Joe's Farm Grill As if Joe's Farm Grill's perfectly crispy and evenly salted fries weren't the ideal fry on their own, they have to go and leave the skin on, adding another level of earthy flavor. But that's not all -- the Gilbert farm fresh restaurant crew then piles on sharp cheddar, applewood-smoked bacon, organic sour cream, and chives ($4.99). If your mouth isn't watering by now, you're simply not human.

Trio of Duck Fat Fries from Bourbon Steak We thought we were in love with Joe's fries. Then we went to Bourbon Steak. The über-classy bar and restaurant inside the Fairmont resort in Scottsdale can be intimidating if you haven't properly attired yourself. However, throw on some nice clothes and eat quite possibly the best fries Phoenix has to offer ($5). The duck fat frying adds a level of decadence that you just have to try to believe. Plus, Bourbon has elevated fry-making to a science, with three different seasoning options each accompanied by their own customized dipping sauces.

Truffled Frites from Christopher's Restaurant After a long day of Biltmore shopping and self-loathing at the small sizes with high price tags, it's nice to get away from it all and stuff your face with a bowl full of fries tossed in truffle oil and topped with shredded Parmesan. Thanks to Christopher's, you can do just that. Fork over $9 more after your shopping spree and apologize to your credit card and waistline later.
