Best French Fries?

Somebody posted this in the Mcdonalds vs Burger King vs Wendy's post...just curious who has the best fries?

I really like McDonald's (I eat them with sweet and sour sauce) and I drooled when I saw the animal style fries at In n' Out, although I've never had them...

  1. Popeyes then McDonald's. but ever since MD has stopped spraying their fries with beef tallow, the traditional taste is gone.

      Popeye's is one place I don't like the french fries. I always get their red beans & rice instead.

      For french fries, Checkers and Houstons (if we're talking all chains and not just fast food).

    2. Fries alone; McDonald's. And its not close in my mind.

      1. i like rally's/checker's

        1. Of course McDonalds. BK used to be second, but then they screwed with their fries and put a weird coating on them. And now Wendy's fries their fries in the same oil as their fish, so they have a fishy taste. Arby's curly fries are OK, but Olga's curly fries are better. A&W's fries are ok too.

            Agree on the McDonalds..... it they are hot... and I have an extra packet of salt in case they forgot to salt them.

            Hate BK's.... but I will eat their onion rings with the spicy onion ring dipping sauce. (Now I know they aren't REAL onion rings... but I am texture challenged when it comes to onions, all I can guess is they puree them and then form them into little rings on a tray or something. )

              I love McDonald's fries the most. White Castle follows second. I agree about BK's fries. I actually stopped going there years ago when they created those gross things.

                ooo yeah, I forgot about White Castle...although some purists might argue crinkle cut aren't the same as straight cut fries, the Castle does generally serve up some fresh, hot fries. good call.

            2. Chick-fil-a's waffle cut fries has all of them beat!
