1251 Williston Rd., Burlington, VT 05403, United States

Though located outside of Burlington’s historic center, Al’s French Frys remains an institution and veritable rite of passage for locals. Established just after World War II, Al Rusterholz’s open-front snack bar quickly caught on and attracted enough customers to expand the business several times while staying true to its original design elements: shiny metal, black-and-white checkerboard, and diner kitsch. A good bit of the place's charm exudes from the staff, which effortlessly manages a seemingly chaotic mass of orders of cheeseburgers, chilidogs, pepper steaks, and of course, fries (available by the cup, pint, or quart). In summer, the ice cream stand out back becomes hotspot for revelers.
