Best Fast Food Breakfast Hash Browns

If there is one item guaranteed to be on every fast food breakfast menu it would be hashbrowns, and I'm sure everyone has a preference, So I'm curious, what's yours?

Mines leans towards to often ordered McD's, albeit at times I find it way too greasy. I prefer when it comes out crisper and not limp like it has on occasion. Burger King I have never been a fan of. I don't know if it's the oil the use, but for some reason theirs has always left me feeling kinda ill.

  1. Do the ones at Waffle House count? If so, they are the best.

    My favorites are the ones at Del Taco. They can be too greasy at times, but I let them rest between 2 napkins while I eat my other food to help soak up some of that. They are almost always crispy warm and salted just right. I like them best with a mixture of ketchup and del scorcho sauce.

      YES, Waffle House are the best! Chick-fil-a's are pretty good too, at least considerably better than McD's or BK.

    2. Burger King sucks for everything especially fries and hash browns!!!

        I wouldn't say "everything." But I would agree that I find most of there stuff just tolerable. Although I do like their chicken items for the most part.

      2. Does Steak & Shake count? I like their hash browns.

        1. I mean if your talking fast food places such as McD's and the like, youv'e got to be kidding right? What's to like about a shaped/formed frozen hash brown pattie that is deep fried in a vat of used over and over again grease that comes out soaked with that grease??? Surely you jest. My preference is either home made hash browns or a coffee shop/diner that shredds up their potatoes fresh daily and frys the up on the grill to a crispy golden brown. Now those are hash browns.

          1. I have had very good hash browns at Denny's and at IHOP.
