  • Barnum Publick House, Bridgeport
  • Burgers, Shakes & Fries, Greenwich. Darien
  • JK's Restaurant, Danbury
  • Sycamore Drive-In, Bethel
  • Super Duper Weenie, Fairfield

You've chosen five finalists as the DVlicious best in Fairfield County; now it's time to vote. First, though, grab some ketchup and pour over the following. Just don't blame us if you get hungry!

JK’s Restaurant, 126 South St., Danbury, (203) 743-4004

Fry Type: Thin. Curly.

What Makes Them So Addictive: Family run since its founding in 1924, the hometown hangout is known for its “original Texas hot weiners,” which are split, grilled and slathered with a secret “sauce.” (And don’t you dare call them hot dogs.) But its regulars also love their fries and onion rings. The curly fry "special" comes in a skillet with Monterey Jack cheese and bacon bits.

A reminder: Voting ends Tuesday, May 31 at 5 p.m. You can vote multiple times, albeit once per day.
