What do you think of the win?

“Thanks for the award! It’s always nice to see people enjoying our food. It feels very rewarding knowing that all of the hard work we put into it is appreciated by so many,” North Fargo Store Owner John Lester said.

What sets your fries apart?

“First, we cut our potatoes in house so they are never frozen. The fries you eat when you come in were most likely a potato less than eight hours before,” Lester said. “Most fries nowadays ... are cut super thin to hide that they lack a specific flavor and are just a scoop for condiments. Our fries being cut thick allow you to taste the substance of the potato.”

Anything else we should know?

“A big thing to point out is that all of the Grand Junctions are locally owned and operated. So, if you ever want to help out a local business, come on in and get yourself a bite to eat,” he said.
