I don't go to fast food places as often as I used to, but unless things have completely changed, this ranking of franchise french fries is absurd.
Here's the list, bottom to top:
9. Burger King
8. Steak n' Shake
7. Del Taco
6. Shake Shack
3. Carl's Jr.
Wow, wrong just about everywhere.
I've never had fries at KFC--don't people get the mashed potatoes? Based on the photo at the website, not only wouldn't I eat them, I wouldn't want them touching my other food. Burger King fries used to be okay many years back, but a while ago they got much worse--if anything, their rating is too high. (In general, you want fries to be simple--a lot of coating or seasoning ruins them.)
I've never been to Steak n' Shake. If I was at Del Taco, it would have been years ago, and anyway, I don't get fries at taco places. Shake Shack I've never been to, though the photo at the website makes their crinkle-cut fries look pretty good. I don't think I've had the Popeyes fries either.
Wendy's used to have pretty good fries, but they changed a number of years ago and are now quite poor--it's insane to have them ranked so high. Top-ranked Arby's used to have great curly fries, but now they're all but uneatable. That, I guess, is the problem with this list--the author promotes that they're heavily seasoned with a spiced batter coating, which is what makes me want to avoid them.
There were a few places not mentioned. For instance, where's White Castle (even if there's no White Castle west of the Mississippi)? Locally, we've got Astroburger, which has pretty good fries, but not enough locations to make the cut, I suppose. On the other hand, what about Fatburger, which has well over 100 locations? They should be on the list, and somewhere in he top half. Their fries are pretty good, and you've got two choices, fat fries (my preference) or skinny fries.
