National French Fry Day may be in July, but we think everyday should be a spuds-sational holiday. We’re looking for the readers’ choice for top french fry purveyor and we want you to nominate your favorite for That’s So Tampa’s Top French Fries.
Submit your favorite in the form below and That’s So Tampa will tally the count and put the top five finalists up for a final vote in the weeks ahead.
The average American eats roughly 30 lbs. of French fries a year, which makes everyone an expert. The winner will receive an award presented at their place of business by That’s So Tampa and our title sponsor, Pilot Bank.
How did French fries get their name? American soldiers stationed in Belgium were first introduced to French fries during World War I. As the official language of the Belgian army was French, soldiers nicknamed the delicious fried potatoes “French fries.” The name stuck, and decades later we’re still giving credit to the wrong country.
Vote for your favorite Tampa establishment, here:
Voting will take place across two rounds:

2nd round voting on the top 5 nominations will run another two weeks from February 8th–February 22nd.
Winner will be presented with an award to display.
