  1. I enjoy the fries at Burger, Shakes and Fries with there special sauce. They are just over the CT line from Port Chester.

    1. Try "So Dam Hot" in Valhalla - their "Reservoir Dog" fries is one of the most unique combinations (and tasty ones!) that I've ever seen!
      Also - the seasoned waffle fries at Finnegan's in Thornwood are pretty good.

          So Dam Hot? Sr. Swanky told me it's still going strong.

      1. In Port Chester, I like the fries at Cafe Mirage.

        1. I will be testing these fries for review, so I really need feedback that is 100% your favorite.

            100% favorite? Then the pomme frites at Le Provencal in Mamaroneck.

            The food (which is very good) is just a means to get at the pomme frites.

          2. Sadly, nearly everyone uses prepackaged, frozen fries these days, and I think all waffle fries are industrial products. Pressures to be competitive necessitate the economy, and the same is pretty true of mashers, my personal favorite. I'm told they even market mashed potato flakes in a box with "lumps" for the trade!

            If anyone can come up with a true "homemade" french fry venue, ditto mashers, I'm there.

            1. The pommes frites at rubys in rye are by far the best. The are made fresh and served with a malt vinegar mayo in addition to the ketchup. They are served I'm a classic bistro cone with parchment paper. They are thing, crispy, and completely addictive. Fries are my obsession, so this post is right up my alley. My kids prefer rubys fries to Mc Donalds.

                  right on purchase street in rye. Same block as Starbucks.

                  1. re: momof3

                    Ah, and my mother grew up on Milton Point.

                    I'll have to amke the trip, for the fries and the memories.

              2. I had dinner last night at Horsefeathers in Tarrytown. The fries were definitely homemade and good. They called them steak fries. They were smallish wedges/chunks of potatoes deep fried. Nice and crispy on the outside, soft and creamy on the inside. I don't knonw if I can say they are my absolute favorite as I love all french fries, but they were unique and up there on the list of the best if you like that style of fries.

                  1. re: intrepid

                    I went to Horsefeathers today. I was going in search of the best french fry, and for the DAY I think I found it. There are more french fries to come, but thank you for introducing me to a great fry and a wonderful burger!!!

                    Anymore suggestions???

                    1. re: HaileeM

                      at horsefeathers, I like the big arugula salad with gorgonzola, side of fries.. good pub food at horsefeathers all the time

                      1. re: HaileeM

                        Glad you liked Horsefeathers. This weekend was actually the first time we went there, and we will definitely be returning. My husband, in particular, loves that kind of place. He had some wings and a burger and fries (nice lo-cal meal!). I had a small salad and a turkey/avocado sandwich and baked potato. So many things on the menu sounded good, but they just didn't fit into my Weight Watchers plan. But I did manage to steal some of my husband's fries though.
