No one has the discipline to resist french fries. They add a salty, slightly crunchy pop to any dish — from burgers to breakfast burritos — and can even stand on their own as a main course. Given that today is National French Fry Day, we made a list of our favorite spots in Philly to indulge in this great American culinary staple for a bargain.
1900 Ritner St.
From 11 a.m. to midnight, french fries will be half price and special off-menu items will be offered.
“What pairs better with beer than french fries?” says Taproom co-owner, Mike Strauss.

243 Chestnut St.
This relatively new Old City hotspot has amazing handcut fries that accompany many of their dishes. But if you want to try something really special, go for their Southern Poutine which is $5.00 all day and includes fries tossed in dry rub, with house pork belly, housemade farmers cheese sauce, fried egg and scallion. Talk about decadent!
