Top French Fries in Houston

Ruggles Green

2311 West Alabama Suite C, Houston, TX 77098

If it'll assuage any of your guilt, try the Ruggles Green sweet potato fries. They're thin, crisp and light (if you can say that about a French fry).

The Broken Spoke Cafe

1809 Washington Ave., Houston, TX 77007

Did you know that French fries were actually invented in Belgium? Get your fix at this cozy Heights cafe when you order a bucket of slurpy mussels.

Jeannine's Bistro

106 Westheimer Rd, Houston, TX 77006

The super crispy, perfectly executed frites at Jeannine's may take the title of best French fries in Houston. We're not sure whether they taste best dipped in mussel broth or on their own, they're so tasty.

Demeris Bar-B-Q

2911 S Shepherd Dr, Houston, TX 77098

Ask for these hand-cut fries to come out extra crispy and the staff will let them brown a little longer for that extra crunch. Take advantage of the BBQ sauce for some extra special dipping.


5520 Buffalo Speedway, Houston, TX 77005

The trademark smash fries at this Houston restaurant are extra greasy, extra thin and extra delicious with rosemary, olive oil, garlic and other savory herbs.

RDG Bar Annie

1800 Post Oak Blvd, Houston, TX 77056

Like peanut butter and jelly, steak and fries were made to be matched. The special RDG steak sauce enhances the combination.

VOICE Restaurant & Lounge

220 Main Street, Houston, TX 77002

Adding parmesan and truffle oil will make a lot of things better. Add them to French fries and the combo is divine.

Barnaby's Cafe

1701 S Shepherd Dr, Houston, TX 77019

The enormous bowl of French fries covered in spicy seasoning are a cult favorite and for good reason. But the selection is hardly limited to that. Feed your craving with waffle fries with blue cheese fondue or sweet potato fries with chipotle BBQ, which may take all three top spots in the best French fries in Houston competition.
