If you love french fries, Boise Fry Company was created with you in mind.  But before placing your order at one of the five locations around the city, there are important decisions to be made.  You not only get to choose among a half dozen types of potato; there are also different available cuts, including shoestring, regular, homestyle (extra-thick), curly, and po’ balls.

We chose the Laura potato from Germany, cut in a curly style.  This tangle of thin fries has a dark golden hue, exceedingly crispy with plenty of skin and a buttery, nutty flavor.  There is a table in the dining area where you can help yourself to dipping sauces.  These range from the ordinary, such as ketchup and typical Utah fry sauce, to blueberry ketchup and sour Thai.  My favorite is the sweet mustard, that is not only gluten free and vegan, but adds a spicy kick to the sweetness.

If you want a burger, options include beef, bison, turkey and vegan.  Our Classic Burger with beef came with lettuce, tomato, red onion and mildly sour house made pickles, plus we added cheese for an extra 50 cents.  In the true spirit of Idaho, burgers are bedded in soft, whole wheat potato buns.  We like the burger just fine, but on our next visit, we are going to concentrate more on fries.
