It’s safe to say that no matter where you decide to go for dinner, if fries are on the menu, you’ve won the dinner game. Whether at a dive bar or fancy restaurant, it’s hard to deny the irresistible taste of a fried, crispy potato paired with a smooth dipping sauce. We’ve done all of the heavy lifting and tried some clutch spots in downtown Jersey City for French fries (it was a hard task, but someone had to do it). Read on to see where we went on our French fries tour of downtown Jersey City.

Yes, when you think Diesel and Duke you think burgers. But when it comes to the french fries at the gem, patrons can opt for regular, cheese, poutine, or cajun – and they’re all delish. Oh, and when you’re done, treat yourself to the fried Oreos! Everything here is fresh and on point.

Left Bank Burger | 194 Newark Avenue

When the restaurant has an entire section devoted to different types of fries on its menu, you know it must be good. With a sports bar/pub feel, this restaurant is great for catching up with a group of friends, watching the game, or just grabbing a quick, filling plate to eat. We opted for the Jersey Devil Fries which are piled high with buffalo sauce, blue cheese dressing, and blue cheese crumbles. The perfect combination of our two favorite bar bites, this dish was just like us Jersey Girls — spicy and satisfying.

The Archer | 176 Newark Avenue

This is one of our favorite spots in JC for a cocktail, so naturally, we had to stop here during our tour. A swanky feel with some fun decor that will make you feel like you’re in NYC, their fries are equally as noteworthy. Our waitress did recommend the Duck Poutine fries (which looked incredible), but given this was the third stop of the trip, the classic fries were what hit the spot. In true The Archer fashion, they know how to kick up even the most traditional dish a notch. The fries are served with a creamy tomato aioli instead of basic ketchup — and we sure didn’t mind.

WÜRSTBAR | 516 Jersey Avenue

Come hungry, because french fries here are less of a side and more of an entree thanks to Wurstbar’s generous sizing. Our advice is to visit for an early dinner before the popular Old Bay fries with citrus and herb lobster salad sells outs! There are also regular fries and awesome poutine fries available.

The fry possibilities are endless. We made it to five restaurants in our one-night fries tour, but Jersey City is packed with tons of great spots for some delicious eats.
