The schnitzel-style chicken options are global all over, but the fries are classic. Yukon gold, cooked to order, crisp and salty, and winners of some high praise from review guru Christiane Lauterbach.

9. The Varsity

Since 1928. There’s a fierce onion ring vs. fry debate that we won’t get into. Let’s just say the fries are steaming hot, russet flecked, and slung at you fast.
