How good are cheesy fries? Topped with beef chilli, melty cheese and whatever toppings you prefer (jalapenos and coriander—do it), they’re the ultimate Brisbane bar snack washed down with a beer or two, or a South American cocktail.

We’re checking off the best cheesy fries in Brisbane for your noshing pleasure.

Yardbird Ale House

Fortitude Valley & Paddington

Home to come of the most infamous cheesy chilli fries in Brisbane, Yardbird now has double the locations to enjoy them at. Their new digs in Paddington are serving up their notorious chilli cheese fries—a shoestring pile of deliciousness topped with Mexican cheese, jalapenos, chilli con carne or bean dip, and Yardbird’s southwest sauce.

Beach Burrito Co.

Fortitude Valley & West End

Not only do Beach Burrito Co do a fresh Mexican take on this perfect bar snack, with chilli con carne, cheese, guac, sour cream, and chilli salt, but they also do veggie cheese fries for the less meat-inclined. Delicious and thoughtful, no?

Ben’s Burgers

Fortitude Valley

Ben, you’ve done it again. If you can fit in Ben’s moreish chilli cheese fries as well as a burger, we salute you.

Newstead Brewing Co


Trust these hops-and-meat loving brewers to come up with one of the most decadent cheesy fries in Brisbane: Their fries are covered in pulled pork and are a meal in themselves. Kudos Newstead Brewing.

Tippler’s Tap


A mountainous cheesy fries pile awaits you at Tippler’s, where the fries are beer-battered and come topped with beef and bean chilli, sour cream and cheese. They also have a version with vegetarian chilli, in case you’re on a ‘diet’.

Shady Palms

Stones Corner

The very naughty sounding Dirty Fries at Stone’s Corner’s Shady Palms come with brisket, bacon bits, mustard, bbq sauce, and ranch dressing. Plus cheese, natch. 

Carolina Kitchen


The New York Fries—topped with cheese, sour cream, and their very own chilli sauce—at Carolina Kitchen have got their own fan club. Ok, no, not literally but people love them, and you will too.
