Mundelein’s Lucky Burger and Grill Ranks Among Chicago’s Best for French Fries

The Chicago Tribune visited an abundance of restaurants in the Chicagoland area to find the best french fries under $5. The two food & dining reporters who authored the article (as well as staff members of the Windy City newspaper) went to over 100 restaurants throughout Chicagoland tasting a serving of their freshly-cut potatoes. After it was said and done, Lucky's freedom fries was ranked no. 11 overall.

“To discover the best french fries in Chicagoland, we divvied up the 106 restaurants among Food & Dining reporters and editors (with help from other Tribune staffers) and got to eating. After the first round, in which participants decided thumbs up or down on each spot, we had narrowed the list to 28. For the second round, Louisa Chu and Nick Kindelsperger revisited those semi-finalists, selecting 20 we thought were worth celebrating. To declare a winner, we embarked on round three, revisiting our top eight picks in one potato-packed day,” the Chicago Tribune explained on the trib’s website.

Chicago deserves acknowledgment as an epicenter of the french fry arts. To prove our point, we set out to find the best, eating at 106 places along the way.
