Seriously, we all know that french fries aren’t the best for you, right? But I say,
“tell somebody who care” – some things are just worth the indulgence and french
fries are in that category. Our friends over at Palm Springs Life had a recent blog
post on the best fries in Palm Springs and we thought that it needed to be shared.
Not because the list is groundbreaking but because, well, we thought they needed
Now, we did just say that fries are an ‘indulgence’ up above – but the folks over
at Woody’s Burgers have some delectable sweet-potato fries that by themselves
are a little bit better for you than white potato fries. The fact that they put some
maple syrup on these guys definitely does give them an interesting flavor.
I don’t know how I feel about a chain restaurant bringing up the list in the second
position, but I have to admit In-N-Out Burger’s fries are legendary. Made fresh
every day and complimented by one of the best burgers this side of the continent
– order these fries ‘animal style’ for a true indulgence. Drive down I-10 until you
see a giant golden arrow @ Bob Hope, and please, for the sake of your spud-
starved taste-buds, stop inside.
The three other victors include Morgan’s in the Desert, La Brasserie Bistro & Bar,
and Pappy & Harriet’s Pioneertown Palace (tied with Johnny Rockets). I have to
say the “heart attack style” of the cheese fries at Pappy & Harriet’s is worth the
drive if you’re into ranch dressing, green onions and cheese all over steak fries.
Not on the list, but on my list of personal favorites are the hand made, extra
crispy fries at Tyler’s in the parking lot of the very first shopping mall in southern
California, between Indian and Palm Canyon in downtown Palm Springs. I also
crave the sweet potato fries with parmesan that Roy’s in Rancho Mirage serves
with Kobe sliders during happy hour (the best value in the desert!)
Eat more french fries!
