Gene’s and Jude’s is a Chicagoland shrine.
It’s located in River Grove in the Chicago western suburbs. 2720 N. River Road, in River Grove, IL. Don’t say that I didn’t tell you where. Lol.
The place has no chairs, just counters.
I’ve never been there without a line. The place is always packed.
When you walk in, you see someone cutting whole potatoes in this potato cutting press. The machine is mounted to the wall and these freshly cut fries fall into this bucket.
From there they cook the fries to the perfect crispness, with the perfect amount of salt.
I’ve always tried to replicate this amazing french fry but have never quite got it.
This last weekend my brother in law claimed to have found the secret recipe to Gene and Judes amazing fries. When I tried it they were exactly like Gene and Judes fries.
He found the exact potato cutter that is used at the restaurant. Then he heats the oil to 350 degrees. He drops the fries until he sees that they become brown. Once he sees it brown he removes them from the oil and lets them sit allowing the grease drain. Once the all the grease is drained he drops them into the oil once again. He pulls them out once they get crispy brown and places them onto a pan with paper towels on the bottom.
He then generously sprinkles salt all over the fries and boom that’s how you get Gene and Judes amazing fries.Great things are usually pretty simple.
