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

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.

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.

There is a place down the street that does fantastic fries in duck fat.

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

This same person has moved on to larger corporations. Check the financial page of last Saturday's NYT.

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

The Grurks seem to make some be the best fries. High oil temp. Crispy on the outside, light on the inside.

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.

Steak fries have their place as a proper flavorless texture addition to a meal.

But for stand alone fries, mystery oil-fried carnival curly fries take the cake for me.

Maybe it is just where I am from, but Burger King fries are HORRIBLE! Same goes for In-N-Out Burger fries. I would say that McDonalds and Wendies have the best fries, with Weinerschnitzel fries at a close second.

The big 3 have all changed theirs recently, not for the better, but McDonald's is best of them.  I really like Bojangles and Zaxbys best.

Fries were about $6, onion rings about $2.67 or something like that, and hash browns I don't remember, a buck or two I think. That should make for supper for about four nights though. Probably not in a row. ;D

Okay, I cant eat Fries anymore ( Low Carb thing) but the more important issue is what you put on them. In Baltimore they use beef gravy.

Waffle fries are the best.

McDonalds

Get out of here! Everyone knows Burger King's fries are superior to McDonald's in every way.

ARE YOU FRIGGIN KIDDING ME

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.
Wendys fries are superior to both BK and McDonalds.

This is what I did two years ago. I took two full Krispy Kreme glazed donuts, but a hamburger patty in the middle and then I ate it. I could barely get through half of it without thinking it was pure overload.

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.

Other fries are shipped frozen, then cooked.  Not good:
