Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

When in Rome...you know. And when in Belgium, you've got to try some fries. So why not go for the one with the longest queue in central Brussels? If people in Belgium line up for these fries, surely they must be good. Yeah, no. I...have no idea what fries other reviewers here have been eating, but it wasn't these. Thin, mealy, half-baked, slumpy and soft. Everything you hope a good Belgium fry is not. They also lose some rating for still serving fries in that old-timey pointy bag. You know, one that will soak the top layer of fries in mayo and will cover your arm in the sauce while you try to dig out those last fries from the bottom. The technology exists to prevent this from happening, and many places serving Belgium fries have figured it out by now. Anyway, save yourself a bunch of time and a mediocre snack by skipping the long queue and opt for another place.More

We felt compelled to try what was on offer here as the queues were constant. We queued for about 10 minutes and opted for the Frite baguette to share at 7 Euro. Staff were friendly, we also ordered a drink and extra sauce which came...to just over 10 Euro. The portion was huge and definitely enough to share, the baguette came with 2 burgers, salad, onions, frites and sauce. The frites were good but tasted just as good as fish and chip shop chips just without the salt and vinegar. We enjoyed the food but I wouldn't rush back for another one.More

It’s our 1st time in Brussels and we tried many frites since it’s a popular ‘light’ or snack food whilst you’re on the go or busy sightseeing. This was a better one for us. Crispy on the outside & fluffy on the inside; the mayo...was good too! We thoroughly enjoyed it with some other sides available ie sausages. it gets busy but the line moves fast and there are many servers. Most of them understand English. If you have to choose one, try Fritland. It is worth standing in line!More

This is probably going to be a go-to for a lot of folk coming to Brussels who just want something quick, easy and fast to eat while touring around the city. Fritland usually gets very very busy at all hours of the day and night....We opted for a couple of takeaway portions of fries with sauces, and you get a pretty decent sized portion for your Euros. The ketchup was very vinegary, mayo was nicer though (but there are other sauce options to choose from). Seating is provided inside (limited) and outside (more extensive). Menu wasn't in English so some folk might find it confusing, but the staff are awesome and will help you with any queries. TBH though they weren't really any worse / better than any other fries we had in Brussels but as a handy stop while on the go, it's worth dropping in and it's at least a bit less scabby and disreputable-looking than a few of the cheaper shops selling Frites as a 'side' hustle.More

Frites and Frites Sauce was AMAZING! Cheap, Cheerful, and Quick; making it probably one of the best meals we had in Brussels! Toilets and Inside Seating didn’t have the best upkeep, but couldn’t recommend the food more!

Very good frites, golden crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, with fantastic sauces and additions, great example on belgian frites. Fast and friendly service. Prices are very good in comparission to similar prices.

The most famous chippy in Brussels and located by the very impressive Bourse is Fritland ,a chippy I go to on every trip to Brussels I take ,I personally hold this great chippy for putting two inches onto my waistline over the years . My...twin brother Stephen and I were in Brussels for six nights ,went here every day ,we enjoyed the delicious fries with spicy sauce or their fries sandwich ,these meals are perfect for when you're pub hopping around this area ,service is quick,it has to be as it's very,very popular ,you can sit inside or outside,I personally love sitting outside soaking up the great vibe of this Bourse area and tucking into my fries,if you're planning on visiting Brussels you really need to check out this Brussels institution ,easy to locate along Rue Henri Maus by the impressive Bourse building,just look for the queues .More

Fritland on Rue Henri Maus is in my opinion the best fast food restaurant to have chips in Brussels.Established in 1978'this is one of my favourite fast food restaurants and one we visit everytime we are in Brussels. Always busy'Fritland has excellent outside seating and...inside seating also.They offer a fantastic range of fast food options and superb chips.We have visited here dozens of times over the years and have sampled most of there meals on offer especially it's significant option it's fries. If you are ever in this area of Brussels and looking for fries and other tasty meals this is the place to visit.Very easy to get to from Bourse tram stop it's a minutes walk.(This is my first review of Fritland). Opening Hours. Monday-Thursday-11.00-01.00. Friday-Saturday-11.00-07.00. Sunday-11.00-01.00. Public Transport. Tram Stop. Bourse tram stop.More

The employees were super helpful and really nice. Yassin and Nuri are the best and they treated us with kindness! They were really patient and recommended a ton of sauces to try and all was deliciousness! The fries were a tasty blend of crispness, the...right amount of salt, and beautiful flavor. This was a great introduction into Belgian fries as I was visiting from New York. Highly recommend and I say this as a person who tends to only eat fries as long as I have a burger. That being said burger not needed, more fries please lolMore
