    Langer's Deli has crinkle cut fries. The best I can recall having in LA. That may just be because they're the only crinkle cut fries I can recall having in LA. Anyway they are crinkle cut, fresh fried and decent. If you haven't been to Langer's ,there's your reason to go. If You need another reason- Definitely the Best pastrami sandwich in LA.

      Hey ilikefood- Thanks! I can't wait to try them.

      My #1 favorite 'Crinkle cut Fries' (so far) are at 'Johnnie's Pastrami
      in Culver City. If I'm in a rush, Del Tacos c/c fries will hit the spot! LOL

        If you are near Culver City get your self to George's Coffee shop on Sepulveda where Jefferson merges with it. They are fluffy in the middle and not too overdone on the outside and really cheap. Just $1 on the side with a sandwich. Plus most of the stuff there is decent and won't break the bank. You will get out o there for under $10 without a sweat which I cannot say for Johnnie's.

          OOhh.. Johnnie's is good at fried stuff apparently. They have the BEST onion rings--I will try their crinkle cut fries next time.

              Sam's Philly Steak Depot not only has an amazing cheesesteak, but they also do a great crinkle fry. Crispy on the outside, soft on the inside.

              18966 Ventura Blvd (at topeka, just west of Wilbur)

                  Yes they do. I've not had it, though.

                B-man's in San Marino (corner of Huntinton Dr & San Gabriel Bl) has pretty good fries. Add a side of teriyaki sauce and its delish!!!

                  dietgrace, I thought I was the only one that likes that place. Well, at least the fries.
