Whether you love them handcut, in jojo format, curly, or as steak cuts, French fries are a classic American comfort food—and Anaheim has plenty of options to satisfy your cravings. Head to Angelo’s Hamburgers at 511 S State College Blvd., where waitstaff on roller skates race to your window to offer the classic burger basket with thin, perfectly salted and crunchy fries (or add on “the best onion rings ever” for an extra kick).
At The Kroft, located at 440 S Anaheim Blvd. #109, the fries are twice fried and come with house-made dipping sauce. You might want to indulge in the garlic truffle fries, topped with parmesan. The poutine menu lets you dress up your fries in brown gravy and cheese curds, chicken pot gravy, top them with chicken nuggets and bacon, or choose from a variety of other treats.
When the Side Dish Becomes the Star
Try Varsity Burgers, open for breakfast at 600 W Lincoln Ave. Get your French fries classically thin, or shake things up with chili cheese fries. Varsity is known for American-Mexican fusion, and for many the carne asada cheese fries are the main dish. Chicken cheese fries are another popular option.
You’ll find Umami Burger at 338 S Anaheim Blvd., famous for both their cocktails and side dishes. Try the manly fries, which are thin fries with bacon, onion strings, chives, and beer cheddar. The Smothered Fries come with thin fries topped with braised short rib, chives, and house gravy.
