One of the many acts appearing at Coachella this upcoming weekend, Vampire Weekend is an Indie Rock band from New York City, founded in 2006.

Though not suitable for those with a peanut allergy, the fries were perfectly seasoned, hot, crisp and browned on the outside without drying out on the inside. Rueben’s fries put up a helluva fight to the finish but just couldn’t edge out the Five Guys flavor.
