They sell only one food item but their french fries are the best available. The potatoes are fresh cut in front of the customer and the fries are cooked to perfection. I have eaten Ken's french fries since I was a boy growing up in the 60's in Stratford. My only complaint is that the portion sizes have shrunk considerably.... More

Ever since I was a young child I can remember going to Ken's Chuckwagon. When my parents would suggest the idea, my brother, my sister, and my eyes would light up with excitement. This is BY FAR the BEST French fry wagon around. I have had many others which are similar but none compare to this one. It's just simply... More

In the many years we have travelled to Stratford Ontario to see plays at the theatre festival we have always planned to get fries from Ken's French Fries truck. Usually it can be found in the parking lot across from the Avon Theater (one of the four in the Shakespeare Festival, held annually from May through October). It must be... More

When a business provides just one thing, they better do it well. Ken's French Fries makes great fries. And when the craving next hits, I'll be heading back for more.

This place is a Stratford classic. Stop by the downtown truck or the truck parked at Canadian Tire. Absolutely the best fries. The clasdic is fries with salt and vinegar. You can't get any ketchup from tjis fry wagon.

I don't know what has changed in the last few years, maybe the cost of potatoes has skyrocketed, but, holy cheaping out!!! There were hardly enough fries to fill my meager little Styrofoam cup. Come on, give your customers a decent amount. The employee that served us had filthy hands.... disappointed to say the least. I guess the days of... More

There's a reason Ken's is busy and have been around for so long. Awesome fries! They are a medium size fry and tasty. I don't like vinegar on my fries and these don't need anything - they are plenty good on their own.

Going to Ken's was a treat growing up. While I wouldn't eat french fries every day, having these every once in a while is awesome.

I have been getting fries from Ken's since oh about 1976, and they are still the best fries around. Every time I get to Stratford I have to get some of their fries, with malt vinegar
