These “boardwalk” style fries are served piping hot and crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. These fries and can be dressed up with Cajun spices if you want a little kick.

THIRD PLACE: DUBLIN PUB

These fries are truly a guilty pleasure every Daytonian must experience.

Dub Pub starts with fried potato wedges covered in a blend of cheeses with chunks of Applewood bacon thrown in. But what sends this dish over the top is the borderline-addictive white wine sauce soaking into those delicious wedges. There is also a poutine version on the menu.
