Mcdonalds, Wendy's And Burger King - It Doesn't Matter Because I Love All Of Their Fries!

I love tasty, salty french fries. I can't really say that I have ever met a french fry that I did not like. In fact, sometimes I can't make up my mind amongst the different french fries that are out there. One of my favorite things to do when I want to treat myself is going to McDonalds, Wendy's and Burger King and purchasing a large order of french fries from each and then placing them all in one big bag, mixing them together and then eating them one by one, all the while savoring their salty, greasy, potato tasting goodness. Yum!!!!

PS. But for the record, if I had to choose one brand of french fries, I'd probably go with Burger Kings ;)   But that's just me.

Me to I like Burger King fries but I don't like all fries because some places put to much salt and I hate salt but a little salt is okay

I had some fries by Alexia the other day and LOVED them. Half-wish I had cooked them in lard, but maybe one day. No, lard is not the healthiest thing, but your arteries can take some fries cooked in them at least once every few years :)

Alexia are frozen fries that you cook at home. I not really sure you can compare those fries to the type that come from fast food franchises. But maybe I will try them someday. However, I do have to admit that I prefer fast food fries. Yes, I agree that some lard every few years won't harm you...too much.

I'm voting for BK-fries as I've almost never been disappointed with them. And this comes from a health-food nut!

Yeah, BK fries are my favorite too.

fast food french fries are terrible for you. just the thought of it makes me sick. i used to eat them, before i became informed on just how terrible they are for you. BK was totally my favorite, as far as fries. but sadly, the thought of any fast food completely disgusts me nowadays.

Ah, the freedom of opinion. America really is a wonderful country, isn't it?

bk got good burgers mc ds got the ultimate frys

I only agree with you on half of your statement. I think BK has the best burgers AND the best fries.

IS YOU CRAZY! BK fries.. omg.. (see what i did there.. i was sooo appalled that i had to use improper grammar ) so, ya. No sir, McDonalds has the best fast food french fries-HANDS DOWN! hot, sweet, salty, starchy, crispy goodness. Aahhh... Even though I've seen the film Supersize Me.. and saw how the Mc'd's fries refused to decompose(umm that's not natural and there's something wrong there!) I still think they are tasty tasty tasty. I don't eat them very often as I'm eating a healthier more balanced diet these days and I must say my *** looks awesome :) I've decided that McDonalds is the Antichrist and I want to avoid them the best I can... It's a love/hate kinda thing.

Wendy's and Burgerking have need new fries, Wendy's has chili cheese, and BurgerKinh hS large delicious thick real potato taste fries.

Yeah, I like Wendy's fries too but I think Burger King's fries are by far the very best.

I love French Fries #1 Homemade #2 BK #3 Wendys I like them with Mayro or Gravy on they. Yumm

Really? Homemade fries beat out fast food fries in your book? Hm, that's pretty interesting. Is there a certain brand or way that you make homemade fries that makes them taste so much better than that of the fast food variety? I have not tried fries with mayo yet though I do not know why I have not since I like to put mayo on burgers and so many other things. Fries with gravy is something entirely new for me. It sounds awesome and is definitely something that I must try at least once in this life. ;)

im in love with french fries too and i dont believe i ever came across any i havent liked either. <br />
<br />
BURGER KING has the best ones out of mcdonalds and wendys if i had to chose.<br />
<br />
<br />
btw, i had some delicious steak fries for dinner tonight. I have left overrs :)

YES!!!! YOU ROCK!!!! Burger King fries are my favorite too. There are so many people here that are talking about Micky D's fries being the best but I think those people must either be crazy or have poor taste. Steak fries? I never had those before but they sound good. And you have left overs. Save me some of your steak fries because I'm coming over to your place real soon. LOL ;)

yum i love the thickness of burger kings fries. i am a salt-a-holic so load them with that salt :D

Yes, I love Burger King's fries too but I only like them lightly salted. When they have too much salt on them you can't taste the natural goodness of the fry itself.

Oh yes... fries.. the best things in the world, the one thing that I DO NOT like to share with others. XD I love me some fries... from anywhere I really don't care as long as they were not cooked in pork fat, even though that makes them taste divine, I'm allergic to it.

LOL, I don't blame you for not wanting to share your fries. I don't like sharing mine either. Sorry to hear that you are allergic to pork fat on your fries even though you like it very much. I love all fries too but I have to admit that some are much better than others.

I dont like fries unless i make them from potatoes i cooked, buy some fries from mc.d's and leave them somewhere, they will never rot, never even change and will be edible months after you find them under your couch. NOTHING that can last that long under a couch should be consumed.

Oh, don't be so picky about what you eat, lol. As long as it tastes good I say go with it. Besides, you shouldn't knock McDonalds fries that are several months old until you have tried them. :)

I know! I don't even care that there bad for you! I could eat them all day! I never seem to get sick of McDonald's French fries.

I absolutely feel the same way.

love it. :)

My sentiments exactly.

Hmmm, when I do eat that I guess burger king would be my favorite. Mcdonald's here has gone down in quality in recent years. I would hope that isn't a national thing.

I LOVE BK fries too! And yes, McDonalds going down in quality is a national thing. I think it's only number one because of it's name and the fact that it can be found virtually everywhere.


YES!!!! Burger King is my fav too! YOU ROCK GIRL!!!! The next time I have fries at BK I'm going to dedicate them to you.

I've worked at McDonald's. If you only knew what was in those fries....

It's okay. As long as they taste good I don't mind. :)

If you knew... you would mind. You would mind a lot. You would mind so much that it hurts.

Uh, you scare me.

Actually, I once worked at a Burger King while I was in high school and I saw some really crazy and nasty things. I did not eat at BK for 7 years because of the things that I saw but I eventually came back to it and I in fact eat there on a frequent basis now.

Burger King is not McDonalds. And good, I should frighten you.

Wow, I have a lot to respond to hear.

just had some todayyyyy :D i <3 mcdonalds

It depends who is cooking them. McD's always has great fries. Carl's Jr are starting to get better. There is a Tastee Freeze that has awesome fries also. I has one from some joint the other day and they were cold and soggy.

What about In & Out Burger? One of the best hamburgers out there and fries that would enjoy tickling your pallet.

You're entitled to your opinion. No one ever said that everyone has to like the same things. Different tastes for different people.

Lmao. I laughed my *** off when I read this! I love people with a sense of humor! :) Btw Burger Kings new fries are amazing! McDonalds fries still look the same after 20 years as when you first bought them... that means they dont break down in your stomach... yuck!

I LOVE French Fries(and French Toast). How can you not? That being said, Burger King fries are definitely NOT my favorite. Especially the ones that had before the newer ones that were sprayed with, something, to make them crispy. They really tasted like crap once they weren't hot out the grease. <br />
<br />
My favorite fries would have to be homemade. As far as fast food, I'd have to go with McDonalds(I don't eat a lot of fast food). <br />
<br />
LOTS of ketchup.

Meetoo! BK all.the way.B-sides The clown, I aint down with. Kinda glad The Hamburgler made his greatest escape to the kingdoms of royalty...

I'm a sucker for fries; I basically like anyone's. For me it's one of those foods that's hard to screw up.

you made me laugh...fries are good..hots the best..enjoy!!!!!!!

So you have a fry *********? Our BK doesn't change their oil that often, so i have to go with mcds.


Of the three, I'd go with Wendy's. Theirs are always a little soggier to me. I don't like them too crispy. Chick fil a is probably the best overall. Nothing beats dunking one of those waffles fries into some Chick fil a sauce...

Mcdonalds fries are the bestt!! but Wendys fries are more healthier i feel then all of the other types of fries(: just my opinion(:

Don't know if you have Swiss Chalet in America but they make my favourite home cut style fries!!!!!!!!

Have you ever tried Checkers' seasoned fries? They are fantastic. Good thing there are no Checkers restaurants in my area.

I thought rally's and checkers were the same? HMM let me google this. Kinda like Hardees and Carl's Jr are the same. I shall check.......YUP same thing. I also see that you can now purchase Rally's/Checkers fries in the frozen potato section of your local grocery store! Wee!

McDonalds? Burger King?? OMG you guys are insane! lol everybody knows Rallys has the best fries of all time!!

I keep hearing about Rally's but I'm not sure if there is one where I live in NYC. Oh well, maybe one day I will happen upon one. Until then, I fortunately have other options ;)

Mmmm....Fries **Drool** Luckily theres a Mcdonalds just down the road! :) ....But I'm fasting.

LOLOL!<br />
This is the funniest THREAD i have ever read in my life!<br />
<br />
Thank you for the SMILE! :)

REALLY! Well, thank you for the comment, it really made me smile too. I was just basically ranting about my love of french fries in this thread. Who knew it would become so popular. I guess there are a lot of people out there who agree with me and like french fries :)

WOW, this story was fetured on the front home page of the EP site for an entire day yesterday. I feel so special .-blushing-

I like the new style of Wendy's fries - they are tasty.<br />
Otherwise, McDonald's is awesome too ! lol

Sounds like you like them both. You should get both fries and put them in a bag together and then eat them.

French fries... I was so pissed when they started with the freedom fries bull ****. France is smart, they knew we would NEVER win this war. We will pull out and declare victory but the chick will still get pregnantified.

Um, ok

I vote for McDonalds fries!!!!!!!

out here in California they changed the laws on what kind of oils they use in restaurants ....... they have changed to supposedly a healthier type of oil ......but the fry's don't taste the same now uggg ... they taste nasty

but my fav was for the longest time, wendys ........... if they would just stop changing their salads menus now!

As far as texture, I love burger king's crispy battered fries. Checkers fries are also AMAZING! a lot of people on here are all over chik filla's fries, but sorry, they're not that great. Only their sandwiches are worth bragging about. But as far as flavor goes, McD's wins hands down. I heard they were fried in pork fat. I don't know if that's true, but if it is, that's the best damn pork fat I've ever tasted!! :D


McDonalds fries are classic, and consistent. Probably the best, but they lost something when they stopped frying them in beef fat. Wendy's new fries are super good, and In-N-Out fries are hard to beat. The best french fry of all time is no longer made. Years ago, Arby's (yes, Arby's!) had the best fries by far. I worked at an Arby's and remember what a big deal it was that the fries had to be perfect. "A french fry should break, never bend. If you can bend the fries, throw them out." That was the rule. But some time in the early 80's, something changed at Arbys and the fries became among the worst. Greasy, and very bendy!

mcdonalds fires taste like old & sadness to me :P i think those are the grossest fries of the fast food industry. i think popeye's fries are the best! i like the seasoning of them! burger king would be my second :)

Did you ever do that, but not look into the bag, and try to guess from where each french fry you ate came?

I'm a huge French fries fan too, but sadly though, my part of the world has only Mac Donalds!<br />
<br />
But when i was traveling i got the chance to go to Wendys and BK and yum i couldn't resist BK fries for as long as i was there!! Your post brings back so many yummy memories and i want to have fries ,like right now!

I quite like the fries from a restaurant near where I live, a seafood restaurant called Captain D's seafood. Their fries are battered and delicious! My favorite! A second runner up to those would be from a restaurant in NC called Central Park that sells burgers and fries.<br />
<br />
But for all general purposes, after those two restaurants, I'd say McD's currently has the best fries out of the fast food restaurants.

Chick Fil A Fries FTW! :D

Fries are my weakness they taste so good, I like all types of fries skinny straight salty fries, steak fries, curly seasoned fries, homemade fries, soggy fries...I'm a french fry freak. I can eat fries alone without a burger or hotdog or chicken...with or without ketchup,I prefer without ketchup or any sauce.

Dude, home-made french fries. After you've had some of mine, you would never go to those crap restaraunts. It would ruin you for other fries.... lolz.

If you live in California you would not be saying such good things about french fries...especially McDonalds. The Trans Fat Ban has RUINED ALL french fries in CA. I'm very thin and starving for trans fats. When I go to the river in Arizona I order McDonalds fries because they are not a nanny state. Ahh I almost forgot what freedom tasted like. Just wait until the food police come to your state next. Your entire french fry world will come crashing down and then you will understand that this trans fat ban will put America's taste buds on strike. The health nuts are very few but very loud. The rest of us have our mouths full of fries.

yea i hate that the law changed in calif uggg

mcdonalds are best i think so..

Haaa I ..< yummies! :D

Ryans53719, I love the potato wedges at KFC too. They can really give traditional fries a run for their money.

mr hero waffle fries with cheese!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Personally I can't stand American style fries. They are all fry and no potato :( Give me a good thick chip with fluffy potato inside and a drizzling of malt vinegar any day: heaven!


I like the potato wedges at KFC. Big wedges with the skin on.<br />
<br />
Salty treats? That would be crispy tortilla chips with jalapeno cheesy dip!

Hm, interesting. I take it that Nick Angus' place is closed. I probably couldn't eat his fries anyway. I only like my fries lightly salted. Thanx for sharing.

yea that is what i don tlike about most fast foods, how they shake that dame salt shaker for ever over the fries ....

You can't get the french fries today like the ones from yesterday. We used to go to this greasy spoon after school in Upstate N.Y.. Nick Angus's place. It was really just a small little shack, with a few tables. Everyone went there, though. To look at this place, you'd never go in . They had grease two inch's thick on the windows. But, they had the best fries in the world. They were all cooked fresh. He would peel the potato's right there. Then he would use some kind of animal fat grease, (probably Crisco.) Then he'd throw them down in the deep frier, then when they were done, on a medal longated plate. Then he would shower them with too much salt, which when you were younger, you could handle it. He placed them in a cardboard container, and you were out the door. All this for 25 cents. Walking down the street, the steam would be flowing off these fries. You could hardly eat them they were so hot. But, you could never duplicate that taste today. I've tried them all, but, can't find any to comare.....

I do calisthenics for two to four hours a day, I'm training to be a HAZMAT technician which requires a rather high level of physical fitness to be able to carry heavy equipment up and down stairs. I'm also considering becoming an EMT (need a second job). Even more, I'm training for the Fall 2011 NYC marathon - all 26.2 miles of it. I walk virtually everywhere I go (because I don't have a car and can't always afford public transit which believe it or not isn't a bad thing) which can be as much as 3 to 7 miles a day. I live a very active lifestyle and I'm young. <br />
<br />
I readily admit that I happen to have a weakness for fast food but I also like to be in shape and I like the good feeling that I get after an intense workout. I take responsibility for my physical health by working out as much as I eat, sometimes much more. Maybe your friend ended up on the operating table because he was a middle-aged guy whom only ate unhealthy foods and had not exercised in 20 years. I'm betting that your friend was overweight as well, wasn't he? Be honest.<br />
<br />
The bottom line is that you have to be responsible for your health and you have to be honest with yourself. If you like to eat fatty foods then that's okay, but you should be prepared to work it off. If you don't want to work it off then stay away from such foods (though I'll also admit that it's sometimes easier said than done unless you have an occupation in a field that stresses physical fitness: firefighter, military, athlete, etc.).<br />
<br />
And, uh, don't take this the wrong way or anything but you're really a buzzkill.

Who doesnt love the taste of french fries. But thats where it ends. Ive know several people who died of massive heart attacks and four who had bypass surgery. Last month my friend had triple bypass. It was down right ugly! Afterwards there was a tube coming out of his nose going all the way down into his stomach. He had a nasty incision all the way down his chest that was leaking blood and puss. He also had four puncture holes on his stomach with tubes in each one draining blood and fluids draining out. The doc says french fries will clog and harden your arteries and KILL you. Case closed! NO more french fries for me. Keep eating them and one day YOU will be laying on that surgery table.

thanks for the wake up call

I think the true test of a french fry is if it tastes good when cold. BK fries RULE!!'s probably the weirdest comment...when i lived in the states, i'd go to wendy's, and from their supersaver (.99 menu), i'd get a chocolate frosty and chips. now, here's the best part. hot, salty, chips and cold, chocolate frosty! dip the chips right into the frosty. that's about as fabulous a taste sensation as one can have!'s pepsi and peanuts - a treat that i haven't had since i was a child. the reason is that pepsi doesn't come in bottles anymore. and no one would be silly enough to put peanuts into a can of pepsi. it just wouldn't be right. since there are not really any fast food places here, i go for pickled onions and sharp cheddar cheese. on a toothpick. yumm yum! what's your favourite guilty pleasure?

omg!!! I'm a sucker for fries too.... it'll be ok for me if i'll have fries for breakfast, dinner and supper.. but just for a week. I know it's not healthy if I eat that way

Actually, I just checked the Chick-Fil-A official website and they actually do have an eatery in Manhattan at University Place near NYU. I'm going to check their waffle fries out and then I'll get back to you. Thanks for the comment.

i agree totaly chick-fil-a fries are great and i can actualy eat them by there self. wow im craving them now.. brb going to get some lol

Hm, never tried Chick-Fil-A's waffle fries but it sure sounds good (especially since I like both fries and waffles). But I'm guessing Chick-Fil-A doesn't have any operations where I live in NYC or perhaps even in NY state because I've never heard of them.

I hate their fries also.

Chick-Fil-A's waffle fries are the best fries!

People you need to get out more. The best fries I ever had were at am hot dog stand on Ashland Ave near Belmont in Chicago at a fruit stand. They took their fresh potatoes and soaked them overnight in big barrels before frying them in coern oil commercial fryers. Chain fries? Please.

Mollydearest, do you really make home fries with potato wedges that are fried with bacon. That soinds so yummy!!!! :) I never had anything like that before. There I go, starting to get hungry again, lol. <br />
<br />
Yeah, I don't like ketchup on my fries either. I think that it just ruins the true and original taste of the fry. If I ever have fries with ketchup it's likely because the fries that I am eating are of poor quality. <br />
<br />
As usual, we are the same wavelength. You and I have virtually the same pro-stance on trans-fats. Maybe you should run for mayor of NYC. I would vote for you, and even help with your campaign. :)<br />
<br />
Can you really run five miles? That's so very cool! It's good that you value physical fitness. It sounds like you place a very high premium on it. It would be nice for us to take a run together one day. I'm actually giving serious thought to run the NYC marathon next year - all 26.2 miles of it. It would be really cool to have someone to train with. :)<br />
<br />
When someone is as responsible for their physical health as the two of us are by exercising on a near-daily basis, we should be left alone to eat whatever we want without authority telling us what's healthy and what's not!!!!! ;)

McDonalds fries are the best. 2nd to that is Wendy's. man they changed the wendy's fries they are better and super good, i used to hate their fires. im not like the original poster i don't just give any fries my adoration, no they have to earn it, some fries i dislike, i don't just like everything, what kind of person would i be if i did that XD

Different strokes for different folks, then. I should make you my home fries! They're those potato wedges fried with bacon..? They're delicious, especially with sour cream. I don't like ketchup, but that's a different discussion.<br />
<br />
The thing about eating more healthily're eating more healthily. People who are concerned with that stuff shouldn't be at BK in the first place, in my sweet little opinion. <br />
<br />
I read about the trans-fat ban, and I think it's ridiculous. I mean, I'm all for health. If I don't run 5 miles in the morning, I just don't feel right (and it is indeed fun.) The trans-fat ban is a thing of logic for me. Will banning trans-fat in restaurants stop people from consuming it? No, they'll just stop eating it at fast food joints.Will banning trans-fat make overly-processed fast food healthier? No, it just makes it 0 trans. If you really want to cut down on obesity or whatever, you'll attempt to sin-tax things with grease. But then he'd lose funding from the NCA. Can't win them all, can we? I'm torn with public smoking bans, but I won't go into that yet.. And that makes a rant for a rant, Shawn. :D<br />
<br />
You don't like French-fried people? One more thing we disagree on, I suppose..

Blah, you don't know what's good. I love my BK fries, thank you very much. Though to each his or her own. However, as I mentioned in the story, I am a general lover of all things french and fried. Wait, that sounded a lot better in my head then it did when I typed it out. But I'm quite sure you knew what I meant to say (or at least I hope so, don't want you thinking that I deep fry and then cannibalize French people). <br />
<br />
I can eat any type of fries you send my way. Micky D's, BK, Wendy's , diner fries, cafe fries, even home cooked fries. I am a lover of all fries and I treat all fries the same which is why I like to sometimes buy them from Micky D's, BK and Wendys and then throw them all into the same bag and eat them (though I can tell which fry comes from which establishment by it's unique taste).<br />
<br />
Yeah, I don't know what's up with Wendy's. Those guys went all healthy and stuff, removing trans fats. Like I really care if my fries have trans fats or not, I only care that they taste good. Lucky for Wendy's their fries still do taste good. <br />
<br />
Unfortunately the mayor of the city where I live, Michael Bloomberg has been looking to leave behind a legacy and since he failed to secure the 2012 Summer Olympic games for New York City, he has focused his attention on things that are dietary in nature. His new legacy is now to make NYC more healthy and fit. It's believed that a large inspiration for this was ba<x>sed on what Wendy's did with their fries by removing trans fats. His reasoning was if Wendy's can remove trans fats then why can't Mc Donalds and BK and all other food establishments for that matter. He's kinda on the war path with it now. Though I do support his efforts to curb smoking. I don't smoke and can't stand the smell. Otherwise than that I don't see why I should be eating food that's less healthy for me. I'm physically fit and I work out several times a week (it's fun). Wow, I guess I went on somewhat of a rant here, lol. <br />
<br />
You kinda have to appreciate the irony that a billionaire is the mayor of the wealthiest city in the U.S. and one of the most wealthiest in the world. Only in NYC could a billionaire rule over the city as mayor. LOL!!!

Burger king? Whaa?? McDonald's fries are the best! They're all soggy with grease! I mean, if I'm going to pump myself with hydrogenated oils and corn by-product, I'm gonna go all out and get McDonalds. BK fries are too homestyle-esk. Now Wendy's. There's something interesting. They changed their fries. What about that?

McD!!! XD

Just the tought of mcdonalds fries makes my mouth water they are amazing! xx

"Even McDonald's fries vary from location to location. Their fries used to be the reason I went there but the is Mc donald's resaurant close to my house but their fries always are soggy and old tasting. There's another location 10 miles away that I prefer and that's woth the drive solely for their fries. I'm sorry to say but not all McDonald's fries are the best.
