Despite its origins in Belgium and the fact that France is part of its most common moniker, few side dishes are more American than the deep-fried potato sticks we know as French fries. As a result, OTP has its share of top-shelf pommes frites. For the most part, this list is gathered through the sensibilities of a purist— it's about the spud first and foremost. But since no food snob worth his weight in vegetable oil would disregard the accompanying dips and toppings, those, too, are taken into account. Have another favorite? Leave it in the comments.

Oak Street Cafe

Chef/owner Joe McCaffrey trained under some of Atlanta’s most creative chefs, though his restaurant is more substance than style. The exceptional fries, fresh-cut and double-fried, are high on the list of standouts. Purists rejoice because these taters are best eaten naked. Err, the spuds that is. Clothing is recommended for patrons. [Photo]

Chicken And The Egg

Copy Link

Sustainability and “modern farmstead fare” rules the roost, if not the rooster, at Chicken and the Egg near Marietta Square. The fries here are the perfect accompaniment for many dishes, including possibly the best chicken fingers within miles. If only “Chicken and the Egg and the Potato” had a better ring to it.

Kozmo Gastro Pub

Long-time restaurant veteran Oswald Morgan’s kitchen creates duck confit poutine that is to die for. Bearing in mind that the ingredients are gravy, cheese, and duck confit smothering a pile of fries, we mean literally and figuratively to die for.

Muss & Turner's

The map reveals they barely qualify as "OTP." Taste buds confirm they exceed the grade for making any “best of” fries list, geography be damned.

Wingstop

Don’t judge until you tried them. Yes, a large chain sneaks into this esteemed list, but the Sandy Springs location chops the potatoes in-house. Their special mix of spices catapults it over the top and among the exclusive.

Grecian Gyro

Sure, the original spot is firmly ITP near the airport. However, founder Nick Koulouris’s sons George and Pano have duplicated the concept in Johns Creek. Topping the Greek fries with Nick’s secret tzatziki sauce is the gateway to side dish ecstasy.

Graft Restaurant

Copy Link

This Grayson gem is one of the best-kept secrets in the metro area, but those in the know agree the country fries are high on the list of standouts.

Three Blind Mice

TBM is no longer surreptitious, since some of Atlanta’s most reputable critics deemed it one of Lawrenceville’s preeminent restaurants. The pommes frites are as enjoyable a side dish as you'll encounter on the east side.

Barkers Red Hots

Sweet potato fries have become all the rage in recent years. Commencing as a food cart in Underground Atlanta, Barker’s produces perhaps the paramount aforementioned menu item in the state. It's the perfect accompaniment for their beef on weck. [Photo]
