Definitive Ranking Of Fast Food French Fries

Definitive Ranking Of Fast Food French Fries

BRB, gonna go get fries


There are very few things more important in this world than good french fries. Equally as important is the knowledge of where to go when the cravings hit. So, in order from worst to best, here's a definitive ranking of ten different fast food french fries. If you're not one of those people who pretends to be too good for fast food, I encourage you to go on a tasting tour of sorts and try them all -- and let me know if you agree!

10. Shake Shack.

Crinkle-cut fries lie on a spectrum. On one end is the perfect fry. Crispy, hot, and great inside/outside ratio. On the other end is a crinkle-cut deep fried stick of mashed potato. Sadly, these fries lean too far to the mashed potato end of the spectrum to earn a higher ranking. But they do photograph well. #doitforthegram

9. KFC Potato Wedges.

Please see mashed potato argument, above.

8. Wendy's.

They're kind of limp and greasy, and not in a good way. The only way they got this high up on the list was because they can be redeemed a little bit if you dunk them in a Frosty.

7. Burger King (Classic, not the crinkle cut BS).

Better than Wendy's, but not by much.

6. Five Guys.

Served in a seemingly bottomless cup that overflows into a salt-littered, grease-stained brown bag. Yum, yum, yum.

5. Jack in the Box.

Perfectly curly and seasoned to perfection. Also, heavily campaigned for by my Texan roommate.

4. Chick-fil-A.

The indescribable sensation of dunking one of these waffle-cut beauties into Polynesian sauce is exactly what earned them the number four spot.

3. Arby's.

Thank you, Arby's, for like, the most perfect curly fries ever.

2. Popeye's.

Two words: cajun seasoning.

1. McDonald's.

Sorry, but nothing beats the classics -- a.k.a. hot, fresh McDonald's fries. Whether you dunk them in ketchup, sweet and sour, a McFlurry, or nothing at all, there's nothing better. And yes, I will fight anyone about this.

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

We are all sending prayers to Naya Rivera hoping she finds them so we can find her.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
