These days she’s behind the counter, but 60 years ago Pat Bell was a young farm girl eagerly lining up for fries on the same corner where she now works. “My mom and dad used to bring us into town on Saturday. It was exciting.” Bell, like many who work at chip stands, loves a good chin wag. She also serves up fine fries that have a bold taste but just about melt in your mouth. They’re the kind of singular fries that, were they human, would make good company in a cool, dim bar on a hot July afternoon. “Fresh cut every day – that’s the secret,” says Bell. “Some stands are starting to use frozen fries ’cause it’s easier, but we don’t do that.”

Cost: $2 to $9. Also available: Chicken caesar wraps, $4.50; daily specials including pogo platter with drink, $6.50. Drinks: $1.25.
