Top Spots For French Fries In Denver

April 11, 2012 6:00 AM

An American classic, the perfect french fry can become as individual as prints of the fingers that are used to pick up, dip, eat and repeat. Some like their fries served thickly cut while others like shoestring; some prefer the classic potato while others venture into the world of the sweet potato; still others like them lightly salted while others like to cover the fries in a variety of saucy goodness. No matter what the french fry enthusiast prefers, Denver’s restaurant scene is full of venues that inspire cult-like followings. Try any of these five top places in Denver and enjoy a basket of golden brown potato crispiness.

No matter the choice, Euclid Hall takes fry expectations to a whole new level.
