There are many fun things to do at the lake, and visiting the chip truck is one of them. Rolly’s Homemade Fries is located in Ontario on Highway #1 between Granite Lake (Pinewood) and Clearwater Bay (Clearwater Market/ Shell).
The owners Georgette and Roland Fiola have been in business for 5 years. A true family business as they employ their grandchildren for extra help. Georgette and Roland are a hard-working couple working six days a week and only taking one day off, Tuesday. They spend their day off at their home in Portage La Prairie, Manitoba. The Fiola’s travel back again to Ontario to open up the chip truck for 11am on Wednesday.
The kids and I visited the truck on a Wednesday at around 2pm and it was a steady flow of families and couples. On this visit I noticed fries and poutine being sold, but this isn’t all Rolly’s has to offer. On the menu is also, smokies, hot dogs, burgers, bison burger and my kid’s favorite drink…..Slush Puppies!
Rolly’s is a great spot to bring your family as there are lots of picnic tables scattered all around to sit at. Each table has an umbrella for shade as well. If you have lots of kids, a fun spot for them to sit is a small yellow picnic table labelled “Kids Only”. There is even a designated dog area for your pooch! The wildlife is always fun for the kids. Squirrels are regular visitors. On our visit, Roland was sweeping up some dropped fries only to leave them on a pile on the ground for “Charlie” the squirrel.
I asked Georgette what her best selling menu item was, and she told me the large fries as it’s the best value ( small fries $4.50, medium $5.50, large $6.50 and a family tray for $28.00). She sells a lot of poutine as well, her biggest selling day is Sunday. I have to admit, the poutine is my favorite. Georgette makes her own homemade beef gravy and it’s so amazing!! (medium poutine $6.00 and large $8.00).
If you are travelling through Ontario to the lake, or travelling back to Manitoba, make sure you stop by! Georgette and Roland always have a smile on their face and they are so happy to see you and to serve you up some AWESOME food. Thank you Georgette and Roland for doing what you do…..it truly would not be the same lake experience without you! xo
