A place of business dedicated to the vending of deep fried potato segments, aka chips. Most chippers will also carry a diverse range of ancillary food products, ranging from deep fried fish to deep fried sausages to deep fried mars bars. You can also expect to find burgers (beef, chicken or veggie), kebabs and sometimes even Pizza. The world acknowledges "The Fountain" on James's Street, Dublin, Ireland as the finest chipper ever to exist.

Note: The word chip is here used in the European sense.
