You cannot find better frites anywhere in the world. The have the traditional belgian cooking style to make them soft but crispy, with an amazing taste and the most popular place between the students in Mons. If you visit Mons, this place is a must! Only problem are the opening hours... a bit weird but quite in concordance with the... More

Reasonable prices but a great atmosphere that really linked with the Christmas spirit. Worth a visit if you like high energy and not too romantic an evening!

Get your "frites" at Billy's is part of the local folklore. The later in the evening the better, as the clients tend to be an attraction themselves. Order a "mitraillette sauce andalouse", a local favourite

This place is by far the best fries place ever, if you find it, than it is worth it. It is a little bit ghetto in the interior but other wise exquisite!

The price was fair (around 2.50 each) and the fries came in a paper cone. They were crispy and fresh. We will definitely come... More

The fries are 5***** but that is it. Don't expect much. The burgers and other meats are deep fried. No chairs to sit down and no real atmosphere. But I must say the fries were amazing.

A great local place for some Belgian Frittes. Open late night for those munchies after a couple Belgian beers. Located at the end of the bar street in Mons.

Les meilleures de toute la Belgique :-)) Le genre de petit snack ou 5 ans apres ma derniere visite, on me dit : avec de l'andalouse, comme d'habitude :-)) Bref, je recommande, meme s'il faut faire attention aux heures d'ouverture (le soir c'est a partir de 22h)
