      I did not know they had a 2nd location in Boynton Beach. They are also planning a 3rd up in Gainesville.

      412 E Ocean Ave.
      Boynton Beach, Florida 33435

    2. The trio at Bourbon Steak.

        I don't see anything called a "trio" on their menu.

        1. re: aynrandgirl

          They bring them out before your meal as a complimentary appetizer.

            I second the trio of duck fat at Bourbon Steak. Probably the best fries ever.

                Seriously? It is a french fry thread and the post above yours says probably the best fries ever in it.

                  lol im glad someone said something.

                  1. re: mikek

                    Yes, seriously. "Trio" implies three kinds of fries. What are those kinds? Neither this thread nor the restaurant's website says.

                    1. re: aynrandgirl

                      Seriously! Waffle cut, curley fries, straight, shoestring, tots? Inquiring minds want to know! Truffle oil, poutine, crinkle cut, blanched/fried, steak fries, sweet potato, home fries, cottage fries.

                      1. re: aynrandgirl

                        Well a trio of what vs. what kind of fries are two very different questions... amazing what google can uncover...

                        "Three silver cups filled with crispy spuds – one speckled with garlic and herbs, another glazed with truffle oil and a third dusted with spicy smoked paprika. The accompanying sauces – oniony ketchup, creamy truffle aioli, and smoky barbecue sauce – are just icing on the cake."

                        They are also fried in duck fat. And awesome.

                        1. re: mikek

                          Thanks mikek. Those fries are f'n awesome. The truffle fries w/ truffle aioli are my fav of the bunch.

                          1. re: Blind Mind

                            Yea, they are worth the price of admission alone. I am also a big fan of the paprika/bbq combo.

                    2. re: aynrandgirl

                      Seriously, I am on my way to try these....

              2. Rok Burger's Poutine Canadian fries, although I have never had them. You did say unique, right?

                  all of RokBrgr's fries are actually really good. the poutine was actually my least favorite out of the regular, truffle, and sweet potato, but even the poutine is delicious

                2. Sustain's wet fries with bone marrow gravy. They are a love-it-or-hate-it item. I really liked them, although the gravy was a bit oversalted.

                  1. Primanti Brothers' (Sunrise and A1A, and Oakland Park and Andrews - both in Fort Lauderdale) fries are worth a mention - hand cut with lots of long ones. You just have to make sure that they don't take them out too soon. They're the best when they're fried nice and crispy.

                      the times that Ive been to primantis on A1A the fries have NOT been good. i ended up having to take them off my sandwich both times because they were super flimsy and soggy. and this was immediately after being put on the sandwich, not after they had time to soak in dressing or anything. pretty disappointing.

                      1. re: mattstolz

                        Yes, the Wilton Manors store is better usually. I've had that also on A1A that they were limp and soggy, that's why you have to extra make it clear that you want them cooked until they are crispy.
