Subject: the best fries?

Written By: SpaceHog on 01/02/08 at 10:53 am

I personally prefer Friendly's fries.

I picked 'Dairy Queen'

Had there of been an 'other' option, I would have chosen Swiss Chalet. Their fries are not crispy like McDonalds, which I sort of like better

Local fish and chip shops will kick all the above's asses any day of the week!

Home cooked fries come in second.

Has anyone ever been to Checkers? Now those are fries to live by. Seasoned and yummy. I love them! There's a bag of frozen ones in my deep freezer right now.  ;D (Yeah, they have a frozen variety too!)

Arby's Curly Fries..Oh wait maybe that's because I worked there for over 10 yrs.

I chose Wendy's... McDonald's fries probably are the best overall, but I find that every time I go there, they're different.  They're either overcooked, undercooked, soggy, dry... It's always different, there's no consistency.  At Wendy's, they're almost always the same, and they're delicious :)  If McDonald's fries were always crispy and crunchy, I'd have chosen them  :)

In America Chick-Fil-a waffle fries *drool*  Here in the U.K my home cooked or the local chip shop.

Subject: Re: the best fries?

My choices:

Boardwalk fries, a local Baltimore/DC chain. All they sell is fries, fresh cut, fresh fried and served in a big cardboard cup (like at the beach boardwalk or at a carnival).
Served with malt vinegar, rock salt and a bit of Old Bay Seasoning, yummy.
With a cold, cold beer, even yummier (sp?).

Rally's (Snapp's/Checker's) batter fried are great too, wasn't sure they could make french fries more artery clogging for you than to dip then in a heavy seasoned batter!

McDonalds, strange as I simply cannot digest the rest of their menu. The fries are still the best "overall" if you can get them when they are just right, just a few minutes after they come out of the fryer and are still hot & crispy but every so slightly soft in the center.

I totally forgot about New York Fries.  They are indeed awesome!  They are the thick and fresh cut kind that blow regular thin fries out of the deep fryer 8)

Those sorta look like In n Out Burger's fries. They cut them right in front of you and fry them up fresh, with the skin still on.

McDonalds is the best.

Burger King is the worst. Their fries never seem like they're cooked enough  8-P.

McDonald's fries are the best... if eaten within 10 minutes of them being made.

A local place, Queen Anne, has much thicker, straight-cut fries that are really good. A large order of them is almost a meal in itself, and only like $1.50.

I love waffle cut fries, but there are no places around here that serve them.

Personally, I like In-N-Out's fries the best.

Looks like I won't be voting in the poll, since In-N-Out was not included in the poll; neither was an "other" option.

We are driving. (We only fly when it can't be avoided like going to Puerto Rico.) We will probably be in CA about mid Aug. or so.

I don't eat fast food often, but I love Chic-Fil-A's french fries.

From the list I picked Burger King because I think their fries are tastier than McDonald's IMO; overall my faves are Arby's curly fries as well.

(BTW I think french fries in England are referred to as chips, ie fish and chips and they are really big and long like the picture of the New York fries earlier in the thread)
