Any restaurant that doesn't cook their fries in canola or any non omega 6 dominant oil???
This isn't a direct answer, but Gibble's potato chips are cooked in lard. They're based in PA, but are sold in stores here in VA. They even have an explanation on the back of the bag explaining how vegetable oil is made and why they don't use it.
I was pleasantly surprised to find excellent chips fried in Lard in the food/pantry car on the North east service on Amtrak trains. The train I was specifically on was the New York - Toronto service that goes through Albany. Next time anyone takes Amtrak to anywhere - check these out.

I don't know where you live, but there is a place in San Diego called Sessions Public that has duck fat fries. I think that is going to be easier to find than beef tallow. If you do a search for "duck fat fries" on Yelp, maybe something will come up. I found several places that serve them based on reviews.
I make ours at home (my mate has an addition to fries and potato chips -- so if she has to have them, I make them at home, and limit it to the weekends when I have the time to make them the best way I can -- usually in lard or tallow or some combination thereof, sometimes with a little coconut oil thrown in just for the flavor).
If you're in the States, I don't think most places are -allowed- to cook in saturated fats any more. Most of them use liquid canola oil (now that a lot of places have banned partially hydrogenated plastic-fats) -- cheap and nasty.
There's a chain called Elevation Burger- they fry in olive oil, they use grassfed beef, and they do lettuce wraps! I'm not sure if they are nationwide; there are a couple locations in the Northern VA area. Olive oil ain't ideal for cooking, but it's probably an improvement over what's in most fryers.
