Definitive Ranking Of Fast Food French 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.[rebelmouse-proxy-image crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//" expand=1 original_size="1x1"]

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.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
