DC/MD French fries?

I'm on a quest to find the best fresh-cut fries in the dc/suburban md/Baltimore area. Any recommendations?

  1. There's a Pit Beef place just past Security Square Mall in Baltimore County. It's on Johnnycake Road I believe and it's right next to the overpass for 695. The sandwiches are incredible too but the fries are awesome. You can also pop into Security Square Mall for some Ocean City fries which can't be beat!!!

    1. My favorite french fries in DC are at Brasserie Beck. Along with their mussells and the various dipping sauces---I'm in french fry heaven!!

          Sweet potato fries at Annabel Lee in Canton, Baltimore

            My favorites are PJ's Pub near Hopkins University at 33rd and Charles. Crisp and dry, fresh cut potatoes, probably fried twice. Kisling's on Fleet St

              Strangly enough: Le Chat Noir on wisconsin ave. AMAZING fries.

                Make that duck fat fries at Annabel Lee Tavern in Baltimore. Just stay away from the rest of the menu, aside from the sweet potato fries.

            2. For big, thick-cut french fries, try Duffy's over by the 9:30 club. If you go on a Monday you can get their fish n' chips for $6.95. In my opinion they're the best in DC.

              I also really like the fries at Sequoia, Elephant and Castle, the Breadline, Belga and Brasserie Beck (w/mussels at both). 5 Guys can be good for a fast-food type fry, but I've found it's very hit or miss with them.

                The fries at Brewers Art on Charles street.........

                  I agree 100%, these fries, especially when paired with their amazing burgers, are heaven. In DC Gordon Bierche garlic fries are great, and I hear Poste makes good fries

                  The trick with 5 Guys fries is GET THEM OUT OF THE BAG ASAP. As the steam builds up, those fries soggify at an alarming rate. Within minutes, they're limp as noodles.
