Note: Restaurants on this map are listed geographically.

1. ba chi canteen

Copy Link
7900 Maple Street
New Orleans, LA 70118
(504) 373-5628
This casual Vietnamese eatery on Maple, opened by Phat Vu and Quinn Nguyen of pho favorite Tan Dinh, is a bit different— perhaps more hip— than the Westbank restaurant in a few ways, one being the bowl of insanely good street food style French fries topped with kim chi, thinly sliced short rib and their signature spicy cream sauce.

2. The Delachaise

3442 Saint Charles Ave.
New Orleans, LA 70115

An overwhelming majority of Eater readers agree that The Delachaise, the eccentric wine bar on St. Charles Ave where Uptown meets the Garden District, has the best fries in New Orleans. Fried in goose fat and served with a trio of sauces, they stem from Chris DeBarr's days in the kitchen, but are still served today with a peanut satay and malt vinegar aioli, which makes the fries as interesting as the bar.

3. Fat Falafel

Copy Link
The Fat Falafel food truck arrived on the scene this year, and is fast gaining a reputation for their handcut fries, served with garlic mayo, and often topping a huge serving of falafel. It all goes great with a beer or two, which is great, because on Thursday nights, they're usually parked in front of Pal's Lounge in Bayou St. John.

4. Capdeville

Copy Link
520 Capdeville St
New Orleans, LA 70130

"Truffle parmesan fries" accompany the many burgers and sandwiches at this CBD bar/gastropub. But Capdeville is also one of the only places in New Orleans that serves Poutine, the Canadian dish featuring cheese curd/au poivre (aka GRAVY, ya heard?) over fries. They also offer a crazy "Build Your Own" fries option.

5. La Boca

Copy Link
857 Fulton Street
New Orleans, LA 70130
(504) 525-8204
Visit Website
The folks at La Boca in the Warehouse District really understand the importance of a near-perfect fry being served alongside a near-perfect steak. It actually takes three days for chef Jared Ralls to make these fries— between their water bath, refrigeration and frying— They have a hint of garlic, and the dipping sauces include a chimichurri, which only ups the ante.

6. The Fry Bar

Copy Link
If you see hoards of people eating fries from what looks like a chinese take out container at a New Orleans street fest or art market, chances are The Fry Bar is near. The on-site french fry caterers serve amazing spuds topped with the likes of pimento or rosemary, roasted garlic, and parmesan cheese. They are must eat fest foods.

7. Lüke

Copy Link
333 St. Charles Avenue
New Orleans, LA 70130
(504) 524-8890
What better accompanies oyster and cocktail happy hour at Luke than a serving of crispy housemade fries? Supposedly, the restaurant sells more fries than anything else on the menu, and it's no surprise. The fries are cooked in duck fat and canola oil, and kind of resemble the McDonald's style skinny fry, but without the whole soulless/evil factor.

8. Bayou Beer Garden

Copy Link
326 N. Jefferson Davis Pkwy
New Orleans, LA 70119
(504) 302-9357
Bayou Beer Garden offers several options for fries, including those just covered in cheese, or in gravy, or the Disco Fries (OMG!), which are slathered in both cheese and 'debris gravy' kind of like the Deep South version of poutine.

9. Sugar Park

Copy Link
3054 St Claude Ave
New Orleans, LA
The Bywater's Sugar Park is mostly known for their pizza, but the restaurant also has pretty decent burgers, and is one of the only places in town that does a tasty wedge fry. They're handcut thick, yet remain crispy after frying, which pretty much defies the norm when it comes to wedge fries. That, and they have a curry ketchup for dipping that is straight up divine.

10. Boucherie

Copy Link
8115 Jeannette St
New Orleans, LA 70118
(504) 862-5514
Visit Website
Chef Nathanial Zimet takes his fresh cut French Fries one step further into the totally gluttonous category— not surprising from a chef who makes Krispy Kreme bread pudding— by covering them with Garlic Butter and basically a nest of shredded Parmesan Reggiano. Dang.
