Sweet mother… we were sure we had gone to spud heaven as soon as we opened the door to look around. Behind the pearly gates (the counter) a plethora of fries were beckoning us to try them. With how fast we horked down the fries, you’d have thought fries had wings themselves. It was official: French Fry Heaven was a place on Earth.


Based in Jacksonville, Florida, the original idea behind this beautiful creation was to simply create fries with a twist by adding seasoning salts to the mix, but today they offer nothing short of gourmet works of art with every style. Whether you’re looking for a delicious classic like Poutine or to go bold with something like their Chipotle Chicken Taco Spuds, you’re sure to find something you’ll love.


The best part? They’re open daily from 11 A.M. to 3:00 A.M.. This means that you can both cure a hangover or prevent one by stopping in at almost any hour of the day. They even have a perfect concoction made purely to keep you from having a rough morning: The Sunset. Packed with fried eggs, bacon, pancakes, and maple syrup atop a mound of fresh cut fries, you’ll be feeling some kind of way after this feast.


But why stop at the fries alone?! There’s room for dessert! The strawberry shake we tried after our feast was nothing short of pure bliss. Topped with candy and avoiding the unnatural strawberry taste that we associate with usual shakes, this one left us feeling cool and refreshed. Part of that comes from the fact that it’s made with all natural ingredients. Not only that, but we were amazed to find out that the fries were cut fresh in house every day, and we dig that.


At the end of the day, what makes this place so amazing is the fact that it has a lot to offer at any time. With a ton of unique, memorable options, this is one you’ll keep coming back to because there are simply too many things to try. Whether you’re looking for a fun date spot complete with a shake or simply trying to nurse a hangover after a night of questionable decisions, French Fry Heaven is the place for you.

Pro Tip: Don’t miss out on adding seasoning to your fries, as they have a ton of options and the Funnel Fries are perfect with maple syrup. You’re welcome.
