good steak fries in oakland or berkeley?
Does anyone have suggestions for places to get good steak fries in Oakland or Berkeley? I used to go to the smokehouse for a quick fix, but they have changed their fries to crinkle fries. Boo! Something that is quick is more preferable, as I have a screaming infant permanently attached to my hip nowadays.
For shoestring-cut fries, Cafe Rouge in Berkeley. For thicker fries, Nizza La Bella in Albany. Both of them use bavette steak, and both have outdoor tables for that hip-attachment. Both also tend to undercook, so if you ask for medium rare you'll get something closer to rare. And both will serve a ramekin of excellent aioli on request.

I like Luka's Taproom's offering in this regard, with good sauces for le dip...axe for them well-done, might help some if you are me
Bear's Lair on campus has some decent ones
I sometimes get them from hot deli section of ________ and heat up a pizza stone at home and then add my own stuff and crisp them up...
Try the occasional appetizer at Noodle Theory?

If you want good Steak Fries as good or better than Smokehouse.
I recommend Simply Greek on Piedmont Ave in Oakland.
Each order is "Cooked to order" so you will always receive fresh and hot fries.
I only wished they had some Malt vinegar to go with them.
These are not the best fries around (Wood Tavern), but I think they are what the OP is looking for?
I have never been impressed with any of the actual Greek food at Simply Greek.
In fact their Mediterranean plate is quite bad.
