It's Arnprior's famous chip wagon. I've only ever had chips, not sure if they serve anything elseThe chips are good, chunky, a little on the greasy side. I'd definitely say they are overpriced.

Hands down these fries are top notch. This small town fry stand in the heart of the valley is a must visit. The locals know oh too well that Wes Chips is great. Even when I have travelled great distances people have heard of this hidden gem.

There ok, nothing really special. Greasy, small little bits of chips. Bring your own pop 1.75$ bit pricey for a can of pop. Nothing special. Just average chips.

Wes' chips are just french fries it's a destination. People through Ottawa and up and down the valley travel to Arnprior just for Wes' chips. No poutine, no other types of food just french fries and a drink to wash it down it's worth the drive

Fresh cut, you can see them do it as you wait, no half cooked waiting in a bin, perfectly cooked. And did I say FRESH? Perfect crunch with soft potato center LoVE it!! Don't ask for Poutine but be sure to ask for salt and vinegar half way! Enjoy!

Wes's Chips is one of the best in the area. They sell fries and only fries. No poutine, no burgers and no hot dogs. Still there is always a line up. Worth the drive from Ottawa.

Thank Ron B
