BEST FRENCH FRIES
Multiple locations from Pinecrest to Fort Lauderdale; PinchoFactory.com
Innumerable diets have been abandoned and countless New Year’s resolutions have perished inside Pincho Factory restaurants, a Latin-flavored, sandwich-and-burger chain that serves french fries that are not for the faint of artery. Along with traditional fries, the restaurant offers sweet-potato tater tots, tostones (fried plantains), bacon-cheddar-ranch fries and Cajun fries. Start with that last one, which features Cajun seasoning, grilled onions and a pink sauce that will turn you from a sharer to a hoarder with the first fry.
