Mile Fry Club

Oh French Fries, how do I love thee, let me count the ways. From shoestring, curly, garlic, waffle, sweet, crinkle-cut and tots, there is a fry for everyone. Considered by some to be a side dish – these salty morsels can often be found stealing an entrée’s thunder. And let’s not forget the many dips — from ketchup to garlic mayo — that really deliver a flavor-packed one-two punch to your tastebuds. Lets face it, your diet never had a chance.

Working for an airline, I’ve had the privilege of traveling all over the country, sampling fries in all their glory. As a fry aficionado, I’ve documented my many conquests on my Instagram account @iSpyFries. And while I don’t like playing favorites, here’s the skinny on some of the best in the biz…

21st Amendment – San Francisco, CA

Replace tortilla chips with tater tots in nachos, and you get “Totchos.” This tasty twist on the traditional Mexican staple will have your stomach saying, “¡Ole!”

Pro Tip for the 21-and-older crowd: grab a frosty mug of El Sully to quench your thirst. This Mexican-Style lager pairs great with the Totchos and can even be found on your next Virgin America flight!

Roam Artisan Burgers – San Francisco, CA

A second restaurant in SF? Absolutely! As San Francisco’s hometown airline, we’re proud of our local eateries and the Roam Artisan Burgers “Fry-Fecta” of russet fries, sweet potato fries, and zucchini onion haystacks is a must-try in the City by the Bay.

The Kitchen Bistro – Denver, CO

This LODO eatery serves some glorious garlic fries in one of our newest destinations – the Mile High city.

Beatrix – Chicago, IL

Not for the beginning fry connoisseur, these fries come served with crispy lemons and chilis for a little something extra. I’m a sucker for different.

Hudson Common – New York City, NY

When twice just isn’t enough, order up a plate of “Thrice cooked fries” at the Hudson Hotel’s swanky restaurant just off Columbus Circle.
