Nothing complements a day at the beach quite like a calorie-packed treat, and the snack shacks that line the Venice Beach boardwalk don't let anyone's greasy craving go un-fried. With the customizing choice of 11 seasonings — like the applewood smoked or sweet toasted onion — the Wee Chippy is indisputably the premier spot on the boardwalk for french fries. There are dipping sauces aplenty (organic or chipotle ketchup, malt or honey vinegar, classic or black truffle mayo) and various other mouthwatering condiments. The whole shebang is done in-house, from the frying to the sauce making — an impressive feat for such a wee storefront. While still greasy boardwalk food, these fries are surprisingly terrific — especially with that ocean view. With the going price of $4 for a sizable regular and $5 for a monster large, they're also priced competitively, not to mention that they are a million times more delicious than the overpriced crap you'll get from many of their neighbors. 1301 Ocean Front Walk, Suite 9, Venice.
