The burger at downtown's popular The Macintosh was a hit from the start and chef Jeremiah Bacon is impressing the crowds with his parmesan and truffle frites, too.

Tattooed Moose

Duck fat, duck fat, duck fat. That's the theme of the uptown hangout's fries and people love them. One Eater reader puts it this way: "Duh."

The Original Ms. Rose's Fine Food & Cocktails

Copy Link
The new-ish West Ashley restaurant is becoming known for their comfort foods. One Eater type noted their fries were "pretty ridiculous."

La Fourchette

La Fourchette might be slightly more under the radar than another restaurants on King Street, but their fries have caught the attention of plenty and the accompanying aioli has been described as "addictive."

Moe's Crosstown Tavern

Copy Link
Moe's Crosstown Tavern is consistently voted "best pub food" in City Paper and has one of the city's most popular burger nights. One Yelper puts it bluntly: "...you're an idiot if you don't try the burgers, fries and wings."

Coleman Public House

Copy Link
Mount Pleasant's Coleman Public House kept coming up as a popular stop for fries among Eater readers. One noted they'll make spicy fries, if you ask.
The team at HoM doesn't mess around when it comes to fries. They even put them in salad. The dragon fries, however, are standouts at this burger boutique. They're topped with duck confit, curry, garlic sour cream and more.

Butcher & Bee

Copy Link
People can't stop talking about the pulled squash and sides like grouper collars at downtown's Butcher and Bee, but plenty of Eater readers love the fried sides as well. To Yelp: "Get the fries w/hollandaise!! Not to be missed. Crispy, salty, and creamy with sauce."

Five Guys

Five Guys might be a chain, but Charleston types still swear by their Idahoes, available on King Street.
