Best French Fries in Queens

I had excellent fries at Tournesol last night.
I've had them there before, amd they range from very good to perfect.
But are they the best in Queens? I dunno.
Any candidates for best french fries in Queens, besides Tournesol?

  1. I haven't had the fries at Tournesol so I can't compare directly to them but my vote for best fries in Queens is at Mood in Kew Gardens. It's a modern American restaurant that gets little mention on the board (except when I try to drum up excitement for it!). The fries are outstanding. Crispy and thin but not too thin.

      I had fries at both Tournesol and Mood. I would say Tournesol is slightly better. But can they beat McDonalds, that's a tough battle... :)

    2. I don't know if they're the best but I like the french fries at Rouge French Bistro in Forest Hills. Whenever I'm in the mood for a good hamburger (for lunch) with fries, I head to Rouge. I've never been disappointed.

      1. Try fries at any of Bukharan restaurants in Regostan. They sell them as a separate plate. I also used to like french fries proven├žale at La Portena (haven't been there in a while, so can't be certain now).

          pretty good hand-cut fresh french fries at the various korean chicken places, such as UFC. it's a side dish you have to order yourself, as it doesn't come with the meal.

            I have lived in Queens for all of my 36 years, and I've gotta ask... Regostan?

              regostan probably refers to the large population of bukharian jews from uzbekistan in rego park.

          2. I love the yucca fries at Malagueta, probably my favorite in Queens.

              Oh that reminds me - I really like the sweet potato fries at NY Style Eats. The rest of the menu leaves plenty to be desired.

            2. I do like the fries at Tournesol.
              But, if you want 'em FAST, try Joe's Bestburger in Flushing!
