I didn't think it was even possible for me to have favorite sweet potato fries, but I've found 'em at Buff's Pub in Newton, MA (in the Boston area).
|Normally the range of quality is between that frozen bag that almost everywhere uses and the kind made on site, which often come out someone limp. The sweet potato fries at Buff's Pub are actually worth a special trip by themselves.|
For starters, the size of the pieces range from nugget to dildo. I don't know what kind of magic they perform in the kitchen, but these things are fried so perfectly so as to get an exterior texture I assumed was impossible for sweet potato fries: just the most perfect coat of crunch around the soft sweet goodness inside.
I dipped them in blue cheese dressing, house dressing (a really nice spiced up sour cream dressing), my wing sauces, and every combination of those, but they were arguably best on their own! If you know me at all, you understand the enormity of what I, sauce whore extraordinaire, have just posited.
|And all this being said, stick to the good stuff at Buff's. If you have real burger standards, for instance, tempting as this may look it won't live up to them. Also I apparently needed to specify the egg should've been over easy.|
|The regular fries are great, but not amazing, so stick to the other two.|
Order a Buff's Pale Ale, tuck a napkin into your shirt, and dig in.
