You have until 5 p.m. Tuesday to let us know your favorite go-to place for fries.

rics are by far the best in the northwest suburbs. They are golden and if you want they will make them crispy! Also they have great melted cheddar cheese to pour on top!!! All those other guys are just wannabees to Rics Fries.

Rics may have decent food, but the owners are absolutely obnoxious! I'm not the only one that wont go there anymore due to the owners either. If you can deal with them, knock yourself out; bon appetite.

The Smash fries at Smash Burger are unlike any others. They are seasoned with garlic and herbs and are crispy and delicious. And their burgers are the best around.
