3 Popular Cuts of French Fries, Queens, New York

Everyone appreciates a side of French fries with their burger or while watching the game at a sports bar. It’s classic American food—but just because it’s a popular favorite doesn’t mean you have to settle for the same variety every time. Many restaurants offer different cuts to tempt your palate and give you something fresh to enjoy. Here are a few options to consider.

Common Cuts of French Fries

1. Classic Fries

If you’re essentially a purist, don’t turn your nose at a heaping plate of piping hot French fries! You’ll find it on nearly any menu at restaurants specializing in American food. To prepare this standard, chefs simply slice potatoes into thin strips and deep fry them until they reach that tempting state of crispiness. Because they’re so convenient, they’re easy to eat on their own, or alongside a hearty sandwich or hot dog.

2. Potato Wedges

Stamford, CT restaurantThe potato wedge is for the diner who expects a bit more of their French fries. It’s essentially a thicker fry that is prepared in much the same way. The potatoes are cut into large pieces—often quarters—then battered and deep fried to perfection. Many love eating them with a few pieces of fried chicken for a filling meal at their favorite sports bar or restaurant.

3. Waffle Fries

It’s easy to recognize the waffle fry simply by virtue of its name. The potato undergoes quite a transformation to take on the heavily textured side dish that people love when they want something just a little bit different. They’re prepared using a crinkle cutter, which creates the distinctive waffle-like design that’s so appealing to the eye. But there’s more to them than great looks! They’re often paired with chicken sandwiches or veggie burgers.

 

If you’re craving nothing but good, old-fashioned comfort food, you’ll find plenty to love at Buffalo Wild Wings®. The beloved restaurant has 19 locations throughout Connecticut and New York, and a menu packed with favorites. For people who crave French fries, there are a whopping three options: classic cuts, potato wedges, and thickly sliced buffalo chips.
