According to research, Friture-Restaurant Reitz is the first and oldest establishment in the Netherlands were fries were sold. The art of frying of potatoes came from France and Belgium, were you could find it on the travelling fairs.
In the year 1909 the family “Reitz” started to sell fries in Maastricht on the Market Square in the house on number 75. The name of the family is still the name of the company and is still located on number 75 on the Market Square, for more than 100 years. Since ages “Reitz” is well known, even across the borders with Belgium and Germany.
According to tradition our fresh fries are fried in beef fat. Most of the sauces are homemade, like the “zuurvlees” (our famous kind of stew), the goulash, peanutbuttersauce and the mayonnaise.
