Waffle, shoe string, curly or steak, french fries have been a culinary staple of American cuisine since the 1930s. Whether served on the side or as a quick snack all by themselves, these tasty fried spuds have sliced and diced their way from fast food to fine dining and back again with no waning in demand. In fact, over six million pounds of potatoes are destined to become french fries every year. So go out and order yourself a heaping side of those golden brown tubers, there's plenty to go around. These five L.A. eateries will satisfy your craving the best.
