The Chippy Doon the Lane

McCormick Lane, 84 Buchanan Street, Glasgow

"Crisp battered fish, chips, homemade tartar sauce, bread & butter and a pot of tea or coffee for just £6.45 - what's not to love?" asks Jules M.

Philadelphia Fish & Chicken Bar

445 Great Western Road, Glasgow West End

Leanne R raves, "the fish suppers are superb. The chips were deliciously fluffy inside. Utter perfection! Good sized portions too, I was struggling to finish my supper."

Old Salty's

1126 Argyle Street, Glasgow West End

The chips are cut slightly smaller than your typical chippy, but, it must be said, were really well cooked and not greasy at all," says Rocco G.

Burger Meats Bun

48A West Regent Street, Glasgow City Centre

"We all shared a portion of the hand cut chips with sea salt which were as good as my auld Da' used to make," says John B. "They tasted like they'd been par fried and left to cool before being put back in the fryer to crisp up to perfection. The chips almost, but not quite, stole the show from the fantastic burgers."


239 North Street, Glasgow Charing Cross

"Polenta chips! It's the future! I've tasted them. Well, it is for me, after trying them for the first time here," says Emma D. "They were delicious with a tomato chili dip."

The Oxford

4 Hill Street, Glasgow City Centre

"It looks quite upmarket from the outside, and it sells a number of cafe culture food and beverages such as coffee and sandwiches. But I must be honest", says Marj C, "I go here for the chips! They are soft and lightly salted, yum yum."

Pommes Frites

476 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow City Centre

Pammi G says "the fries are big and twice fried to perfection, soft on the inside and crispy, crunchy perfection on the outside. The seasoning was perfect and the mayo was creamy and luxurious."

Jack McPhee

261 Hope Street, Glasgow City Centre

Donald M has "dined at Jack McPhee's on several occasions and found the food to be first class … and there is something for everyone on the menu not just fish."

Café Zecchino

331 Cumbernauld Road, Glasgow East End

"This place makes the best chippy chips ever," raves Adele R. "Don't be fooled into thinking this is a cheap and cheerful chippy or a greasy spoon cafe, it's a really decent chip shop and Italian cafe, masquerading as an unassuming eatery on the outskirts of Dennistoun."

The 78

10 Kelvinhaugh Street, Glasgow West End

"The chips that come with the burger couldn't be any better - proper chips with skins on, not greasy at all, and nice and fluffy inside," says Lucy B.
