Load up with Brisbane’s best loaded fries

Loaded fries, dirty fries, chilli fries, poutine… call them what you want, everyone will agree that dirty fries are the best thing since sliced potato.

If you’re not on the gravy boat, you’ve got a lot to ketchup on. Smothered over deep-fried potato in every shape, length and form, the options of toppings are as limitless as they are delicious. But with all of this diversity, how are you to choose which bowl you’ll shove your face into first? Don’t worry small fries, we’ve got you covered.

Big Roddy’s Rippin’ Rib Shack | South Brisbane

Big Roddy’s fries are not for the faint of appetite! Served Canadian-style with secret sauce and genuine Aussie cheese curd, Big Roddy’s poutine fries are the perfect accompaniment to any burg’, and definitely a meal you have to fry.

Seoul Bistro | Sunnybank

Professional fry fans, look no further than Seoul Bistro for the ultimate Korea highlight–kimchi fries! Perfect by themselves, or with a healthy dosage of buttermilk chicken, these thin-cut bad boys are topped with spicy cabbage and mayo sauce.

Getta Burger | Carina

Getta Burger’s filthy fries are so saucily good they’re known by reputation only. You can catch these fries tossed with house BBQ sauce, pulled pork, pulled beef and topped with melted cheese. Totally worth your subsequent trip to the Emergency Room.

Yard Doggs | Fortitude Valley

With thin, shoestring fries to maximise your chip to topping ratio, you can scoop up chilli con carne, Mexican cheese and jalapeños to your heart’s content. You’d better grab some extra napkins, though, because these chilli cheese fries are also drenched in southwest sauce. 

Red Hook | CBD

Bored with regular chilli? Try slow-cooked beef brisket atop your chilli fries at Red Hook instead! If you’re not quite that hungry (or just saving room for mac ‘n’ cheese), just get them loaded with gooey melted cheese and bacon instead. 

Ben’s Burgers | Fortitude Valley

To put cheese, or not put cheese on your fries? Now, that’s a loaded question. Luckily at Ben’s Burgers, you can have the best of best worlds! Their dedicated fry menu (that’s what we like to hear!) offers both cheesy loaded fries and veg chilli fries.


Potatoes gonna potate.
