With a menu that’s nearly all hits, from the jalapeño hash and bacon pancakes at breakfast to the grass-fed burgers and massive scratch desserts at lunch and dinner, one could almost overlook the Lowbrow’s fries. Almost. But these hand-cut beauties are so damn good that even those inveterate side salad diehards—you know, the types that rationalize the cheeseburger by skipping the fries and going for greens—can’t help but cave. They’re fresh and hand-cut, thin but not too skinny, not just salty but savory, and boast the ideal ratio of tenderness to crunch. We’ve seen shameless parents steal them straight off their kids’ plates. Who can blame them?
