Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries – buy
Sure these might be a little pricier the most, but we think the premium is worth it. Is it the Yukon potatoes? The organic tag? Who cares – these are our favorite regular style fries available in the freezer aisle. Full review.
Ore-Ida Golden Crinkles French Fried Potatoes – buy
While crinkle cut fries can be something of a love em or hate em affair – we’re firmly in the former camp. And we LOVE these crinkle cut fries from Ore-Ida. They cook up perfectly in the air fryer offering a crisp exterior and pillowy fluffy interior. Full review.
Simple Truth Crinkle Cut Fry – maybe buy
This product from Kroger’s Simple Truth line is a strong one. The fries finish up to a deep golden brown, and in line with the no weird ingredient narrative of the brand – they’re the cleanest tasting fry on this list. Full review.
Alexia House Cut Fries with Sea Salt – maybe buy
This is a solid skinny style fry that’s more about the exterior surface crisp then masses of internal fluffy potato. They have a very clean taste like all of the Alexia range and are certainly worth a look at, if you’re after a thin style French fry.
Lamb Weston Super Crispy Crinkle Cut Fries – maybe buy
Slightly pricier and slightly smaller in package size than the Ore-Ida brand. These crinkle cut fries certainly crisp up nicely, but do possess a certain yellow-technicolor quality that might be off-putting. Full review.
Great Value Regular Cut French Fried Potatoes – maybe
These fries occupy that odd space between thin crispy French fries and thick fluffy steak fries. If that’s your preferred style, these might be for you. They’re certainly a deal at under $2 for two pounds. Full review.
365 Organic Crinkle Cut Fries review – skip
O.k. even a less than stellar French fry is one we will probably eat. That said, these aren’t as good as the products mentioned above. Unless you have no other choice, we’d recommend skipping these. Full review.
Red Robin Seasoned Steak Fries – skip
Fans of the burger chain mind want to check these out. For me, these are a pass. Not particularly poor in any way, but not are they remarkable either. A rather average product that’s bested by items higher up this page. Full review.
What can I cook with French fries?

This classic combo can be riffed on in any number of ways, maybe think about bringing different flavor profiles and cuisines to the plate.

Try mixing and matching with any number of dishes that just need that little extra something on the side. Here’s a tamale smothered in red and green chili sauces and yep – French fries!
Breakfast for dinner
Don’t discount French fries as a stand in starch when enjoying breakfast for dinner. We love to load up thick and chunky steak style fries with Hatch green chili sauce then plate with sunny side up eggs.
