BBQ Fries
Smoke, 901 Fort Worth Ave. and 2408 Preston Road, Plano
Saddled with enough meat at Smoke, a spicy, smoky potato is just what the bad doctor ordered. With their burger, which is topped with a bacon slab and an egg fritter, fries are like exclamation points. It’s fun to eat fries at Smoke. They’re curtained in a barbecue pork spice that includes curry powder, dark chili pepper, smoked paprika, brown sugar, cumin and cayenne. Slap the condiments out of your hand. That said, dipping their barbecue fries in Smoke’s myriad delicious sauces is Christmas in July.

Some of the best things about a good pile of fries are those crispy slivers that come with it. In this particular fry pile, the crispy shards were a brilliant compliment to these mini skyscraper-shaped Idaho spuds. These are fries that salute their source — a crust on the outside and soft, almost mashed potato texture inside. Just the right amount of salt. A swipe in some ketchup and you’ll want to Instagram the hell out of these fries.

Hand-Cut Fries
Uncle Uber’s, 2713 Commerce St. 
Any list of guilty pleasures in Dallas needs to include the fries and heavily salted ranch at Uncle Uber’s. Uber’s is generous, too: They come in a double fist-sized pile, and they’re consistently crunchy all the way through. Don’t extra salt these or your feet will go numb. Oh, and get extra ranch.

It’s hard to believe, even with a basket in front of you, that the fries at 20 Feet aren’t fresh-cut. As we previously noted, chef Marc Cassel flashes them with herbs, which become crunchy and aromatic, and serves them with soft, roasted garlic and a splash of extra virgin olive oil. Use the fries as mini buns around that creamy roasted garlic and you’ll refuse to believe anything’s touched a freezer.

Cheddar Fries
Snuffer’s, 3526 Greenville Ave. 
How dare a best fries list not contain the cheddar fries at Snuffer’s? They've grown into the fabric of Dallas itself. Cheddar, somehow molten and stretchy and blistered-crisp all at the same time, blankets a dish of tender french fries. It's like a carb pie. Nodes of green onion, bright and crisp, are loaded up with enough bacon and addictive ranch sauce to cause doctors around the world to simultaneously drop their coffee cups whenever you take a bite, as if there was a disturbance in the force. There is — you’re eating cheddar fries at Snuffer’s.

French Fries
Maple & Motor, 4810 Maple Ave. 
One of the best trays of hot, straight-forward French fries in Dallas is at Maple & Motor. Some may say Off-Site Kitchen, but give me these smoking-hot, crunchy fries with sprinkles of black pepper at M&M any day, anytime. Maybe it's that magic oil. Make sure to dine in at M&M to ensure you get them as hot as they should be. Pair these fries with the griddled crust of Maple & Motor’s burger or the superb BLT and you've got yourself a deeply satisfying food experience that’s better than any fast food joint could imagine.
