THORNWOOD, N.Y. ---- No burger or sandwich is complete without an order of fries. Whether you like them shoestring skinny, crispy and crinkled or golden brown and fried to perfection, they remain one of America's favorite sides.

DVlicious Ask: Who Has Westchester's Best Fries?

  • The Barley House, Thornwood
  • Blazer Pub, Purdys
  • Le Jardin Du Roi, Chappaqua
  • Melts, Armonk
  • Walter's, Mamaroneck

You've chosen five finalists as the DVlicious best in Westchester; now it's time to vote. First, though, grab some ketchup and pour over the following. Just don't blame us if you get hungry!

The Barley House, 665 Commerce St., Thornwood; (914) 495-3333

Fry Type: The Barley House takes its fries seriously. They come in two styles: thin (the width of a No. 2 pencil. This is not, the owners emphasize, shoestring style, which is narrower) and waffle-cut. The potatoes used are Idaho, sweet, and Yukon gold, whose hardy yellow flesh stands up well to boiling, mashing and frying.

What Makes Them So Addictive: It’s all in the oil and the temperature used to do up the spuds. Barley’s uses a blend of olive and canola. The fancy cut waffle fries are harder to do, but hold onto seasonings (and ketchup) better.

A reminder: Voting ends Tuesday, May 31 at 5 p.m. You can vote multiple times, albeit once per day.
