      I loved the sweet potato fries at Shanghai Cowgirl, but they might not be for 'purists' ....

        Cheap-> Macdonald's or Dairy Freeze

        Not Cheap-> Le Select or Baton Rouge

          The herbed fries that come with the lamb burger at C'est What? are terrific ... and you can wash them down with an incredible pint ...

   their take out/cafeteria section at the front of the store. crazy but true. i think they're coated before they're fried. yummmmm...

              Winners at Lawrence and Birchmount easily has the city's best value every Friday night. Two gigantic platters for only 12.95 (for two adults) (out of choice of 9, 3-4 pound meals), with the biggest, crispiest and tastiest fries in the city. I've also eaten from the chip trucks in front of the new TO City Hall and consider the chip-truck fries nearly close to the quality of Winners.

              Enjoy !

            Absolutely hands down - I agree.
            Love anywhere that has sweet potato fries as well.

          2. I actually like Swiss Chalet's.

              Ooh - good call. Swiss Chalet is definitely one of my favourite guilty pleasures. On the other end of the spectrum, JK on Church has great frites. Also, The Drake makes a mighty fine burger and fries.

              1. re: peppermint pate

                I third Swiss Chalet, although i haven't tried their new non-transfat fries yet. They're offering free samples with delivery orders.

              2. re: Goober

                So do I. There's a Swiss Chalet takeout place across from my house, and we do quick poutine with their fries when we can't think of anything else or we're craving grease. They're not fantastic, but they're consistently pretty good. I must confess to being a chalet sauce addict, as well.

                1. re: lissar

                  What is chalet sauce exactly?

                  Made from the rotisserie drippings maybe?

                  1. re: Goober

                    It's a packaged sauce that they make from a powder and serve hot. It's viscous and tangy, with nutmeg, celery, paprika, and I don't know what else. It makes good fake poutine. *braces for attack by poutine purists*

                    It's a family guilty pleasure, chalet sauce and fries.

                    1. re: lissar

                      you can actually buy the little packages at dominion for the powder to make it at home for yourself. i too, am obsessed with the sauce.
