Burger Week was a lot of fun, but we didn't get the chance to sing the praises of the burger's best friend: the french fry. Philly has more than a few places that do french fries really well, some of which are better than the headlining burger. Sweet potato fries from the Good Dog, Varga Bar's crinkle cuts covered in crabmeat, and the classic Spanish Fries from the Copabanana are among the best in town.

So, if you find yourself in need of a bite, but don't want to commit to a whole meal, take these tasty spuds out for a spin.

Note: Restaurants on this map are listed geographically.

Varga Bar

Copy Link
Varga Bar has some of the best bar snacks in town, but the headliner is most-definitely the crinkle-cut fries topped with jumbo lump crab meat and lots of cheese.

O'Neals Irish Pub

Copy Link
The Chip Butty at O'Neal's is a pile of fries, smothered in cheese on a hoagie roll. It's a heart attack in a sandwich and so delicious.

Cosmi's Deli

Copy Link
Sure, theyre a take-out joint, but the plate of Cheesesteak Fries is delicious and greasy enough to stain the bag. Get 'em well done.

Good Dog

Copy Link
Even though people are divided on the merits of the sweet potato, there's no denying how fantastic the Good Dog's sweet potato fries are, especially with that dipping sauce.

Copabanana

Copy Link
The Spanish Fries at Copa are nothing to mess with, and are hot as hell. Topped with jalapenos and onions, these greasy goodies come with Belgian mayo dip to help them slide down your gullet.

Nick's Old Original Roast Beef

Copy Link
The Gravy Fries at Nick's in South Philly are worth the trip with or without a sloppy and delicious roast beef sandwich. And, the little bits luscious beef swimming in the gravy add another layer of deliciousness.

Sketch Burger

Copy Link
While they always get love for their burgers, Phyllis Farquhar's Sketch Burger is no slouch in the fry department either. We suggest the green chili cheese fries for an extra special treat.

Hot Diggity

Copy Link
The hot dogs are the main attra, but the Belgian-style fries are just as good. Served in the traditional paper cone with one of many dipping sauces, they're some of the best in town.

Chickie and Pete's

Copy Link
Whether you like them or not, Chickie's & Pete's Crab Fries are a staple of the Philly experience. And, the real star of the show is the white cheese sauce, of course.

Shake Shack

Copy Link
Sure, they're frozen, but they're also some of the crispiest golden beauties in the city. Crinkle cut and piping hot, don't get a Shack
