3. In N Out - Fry Light. See, I like my fries a little on the less cooked side, and they deliver.
4. Wendy's - Always solid with the right amount of salt.
5. Now this is tough because I'd have had at least two local places up here, but I guess I'll give the nod to CFA's Waffle Fries. I like the texture.

Other than that

1. McDonald’s
2. Chick-fil-A
3. Whataburger
4. Five Guys
5. Culver’s
Arby’s with the once in a blue moon honorable mention.

My employer did not make the list. The sister company got the honorable mention tho.

1. McDonald's
These are a classic. A staple on which all other fries are measured.

2. Arby's
One of the few places with curly fries.

3. Burger Federation
Drizzled olive oil and seasoned well, I'd put it near the top if I didn't have to go to Pearson Airport to get it.

4. A&W
Crisp and a very classic taste to them.

5. Chip Trucks
Classic chunk or wedges, and most chip trucks are at least good to very good.

We used to have A&W around and those were really good fries. I miss that place.

I haven't tried A&W yet. Maybe I need to.

I find it funny only BD didn't have Mickie D's #1.

I discovered this is true. When I lived in the city we didn't have Wendy's. You had to go to Skokie for that, and we didn't have Wendy's in the south where I was born.

So when I moved to Central Illinois I got my first taste. Not good.

Well, I was on the road today and tried a different new out of town Wendy's.

I owe Mach an apology. The fries were crisp and thr skin was still on and perfectly salted. The spicy chicken sandwich was amaz-balls.

Long story short. My Wendy's sucks!

Dipping fries in anything other than ketchup is worth doing!

Also Popeyes Chicken fries are up there, they are what KFC fries use to be, before they merged with Taco Bell.
