3 Best Places for French Fries in the Tri-State

We asked our MY105.3 listeners to tell us where to find the best french fries in all the land. The comments started pouring in immediately…and we have the results. Who do you think took the top spot?

The truth is, these are actually the top 6 places, according to your votes. We had a couple ties though, so it technically is the top 3.

I understand that it’s hard to deny how yummy the fries are at a number of different chain restaurants. Having said that, I was so glad to see two local restaurants make the top 5!

So without any further ado…


#1 (tie) – G.D. Ritzy’s

#1 (tie) – Rally’s

Rally's_logoWe apparently have a lot of Rally’s fan that listen to MY105.3. A bunch of votes for Rally’s came in right off the bat. I actually where I was the first time I ever tried the fries from Rally’s. It was so different from everyone else at the time.

#2 – 5 Guys

Five_Guys_LogoI’ll be honest, I’ve only eaten at 5 Guys one time, and that was when the first opened here in Evansville. I do remember it being really yummy, but also being a bit expensive for a burger and fry joint. I can definitely understand why their fries are so popular with our audience.

#3 (tie) – Big Top Drive-In

#3 (tie) – Penn Station East Coast Subs

#3 (tie) – McDonald’s
