Divine followers of fast food, gather ye round for the angelic choir of Melbourne-based burger, hot dog and hot-chip chain, Lord of the Fries, which has opened the doors of their brand new Sydney venture unto the flocks of George Street. Doth divinity still reign supreme in each deep-fried and juicy bite? It sure doth. That is if you can handle the queues, of course.

That’s right, it has come as no surprise that the love-child of Melbourne founders Mandy and Mark, two fry fanatics on a quest for the perfect potato snack, is already attracting crowds far and wide to see if their first interstate store is up to scratch with the original. If you still don’t know what I’m talking about, Lord of the Fries is and has been big in Melbs for some time. Now, it’s big in Sydney too.

As the name would suggest, you go there for the fries and the array of heavenly sauces that are layered on top. Too much? Well, you won’t think so when you nab yourself a box ($6.95) and get the East L.A. sauce ($1.50) — a thick, melted cheese and jalapeno concoction — smothered on top. But if you’re simply somewhat of a chip connoisseur, on their own is fine, but you’re missing out on something special here.

For a more substantial feed, nab yourself a burger meal ($14.95), consisting of the aforementioned box of fries and choice of any burger. The Original/Melbourne burger was like a thicker, bigger and better Maccas burger while the Parma/Bombay packed a deliciously exotic punch. The hot dogs looked good, although what with the undulating masses waiting behind, there was minimal time to have a proper gander.

So overall, yes, Lord of the Fries has succeeded to transfer its Melbourne goodness over to Sydney and we may all rejoice. Hallelujah. Just be prepared for a cramped service area and a long wait.
