Restaurant w/ just Fries?

Strange question: Is there a restaurant in LA that just serves fries?

I remember a place like this in NYC--- wondering if LA has an equivalent.

  1. there was a place open a few years back called hollywood fries in westwood.....i never had the chance to go before it closed.

    i think it was owned by danny glover.

    1. Used to be a place in Westwood called "Hollywood Fries" but it closed down a while ago.

      I recall seeing French Fries only places in some of the food courts at malls, but can't recall their names.

      1. I don't think there currently is such a place in Los Angeles.

        For several years, we had Benita's Frites, but that has since closed. Hollywood Fries was the most recent incarnation, but it didn't make it either.

        Your best bet is to find a place that has good fries and dipping sauces. Here's a long thread from May on who has the best fries in Los Angeles.

          I am STILL mourning the loss of Benita's Frites. It is unbelievable to me that there is nowhere similar in all of LA....

            JUST fries? No... not really... but there is a place that specialises in fries with the various dipping sauces (mayos, aiolis, sauce espagnole, Fritessaus, etc.) at the Block at Orange called EuroStation. They also do two kinds of Belgian waffles, and crepes.

            I reviewed it a couple of weeks ago. Service was terrible, but it WAS the second day they were open, so I'm sure they've shaken some of the first-week jitters out.

                  that's too bad. i've actually never even been there, i had just heard about it. thanks for the update!

        2. There used to be a place in old town, Pasadena that served just fries. It had a witty name, but I just can't remember it now. Got to go there once before they closed, it was pretty good. Potato, sweet potato fries, all sorts of dipping sauces.

          1. I am not a great fan of The Brentwood, but they do serve great fries. Go to the bar (or even a table) and order a cocktail and an order of fries. The fries are amazing!

              I know it's not what you're looking for, but the fries at 'the little cafe' in tarzana are fantastic
