Doh, I eat those (well, spicy versions of those) all the time as well. Wish I could modify the poll!

McDonalds

For fast food I would definitely agree. When I was in high school my friends preferred Burger King fries. Crazy.

I don't recognize the apostolic succession of waffle fries! Probably something Wendys came up because they couldn't compete with McDonalds and Burger King.

Have you tried BK's new fries? THEY ARE THE WORST ON THE PLANET.

BK has taken such a huge nosedove in recent memory, including removing the beloved BK Fries, that I want nothing to do with them.

New BK fries are definitely better than the old ones. Still miles behind McDonalds though. I can't eat BK fries without smothering them in Heinz™ ketchup.

Yes they changed it last year. I have no idea what's wrong with them now. Maybe they got a new CEO, but BK is straight up garbage now, and this is coming from a guy who would choose BK over McD any day of the week.

A certain person bought up a huge amount of BK stock and "turned the company around" by killing it.

Best cheap fries in Cincinnati are from a greasy gyro place.

I love me some Wendy's, but for some reason I think their fries are worse now.  It could just be the incompetence at my local one, but all I taste is oil when I eat them now.  Blech.

McD's fries hands down ftw.

Let's be clear. Their fries are pretty much garbage. I just think they are slightly better than before. I sometimes eat them.

I just go for the Baconator or two. And to see Wendy in her military garb reminding me we are at war and we can sacrifice for the effort by donating a dollar and getting a ridiculous key fob to receive a free small Frosty upon each subsequent visit.

It's like reverse rationing.

If Wendy's weren't the only alternative to Cincinnati Chili (you can only eat it 240 days of the year or so) within a walk from work, I probably wouldn't have clue about their fries.

In-N-Out French fries are  better  than  the others, since their fries are cooked from fresh cut Kennebec potatoes.

Here's the line to buy In-n-Out burgers and fries. It looks like the line is about 3 miles long, and about a 3 hour wait.
