8 places with the best French fries in Birmingham

French Fries

Waffle fries? Curly French fries? Sweet potato fries? No matter how you prefer to eat a fried potato, we know the different varieties are favorites among children and adults.

In the U.S., we love potatoes. In fact, we consume over 113 pounds of potatoes annually, according to the National Potato Council. Our love for potatoes runs so deep that they decided to make a national celebration in honor of French fries. That’s why every year on July 13, many Americans participate in National French Fry Day by enjoying one of the many varieties of the classic food.

There are great options in the Magic City to get your fry fix. Check out these 8 places and enjoy!
