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.

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.
