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.

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.

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.
