I'm a big fan of fast food, please ignore this thread if you have a problem with this.
The greatest thing about fast food is the the peas and carrots situation that a occurs between Fried potato wedges and beef. Being a fastfood addict,
and having lived in several states, I have the pleasure of introducing my top list of fast food fries.
Checker's/Rally's Hot Fries- I'm not sure If all of the Rally's drive threw restraunts have been converted to Checkers or not, but growing up, and
this day I hold their fries as the best I've ever had. They have a crispy outside with a baked potato inside. The seasonings are some what spicy, but
with plenty of salt. These are great fries.
Arby's curly fries- The style these fries are cut are best described as fun. The curles are fun, but so is the texture, in an order you will find
some more soggy and some crunchy, but all are great. The seasoning perfect, though i tend to get digestive problems (ingesting to me they use msg, I
don't handle msg well). Overall the taste is great and the texture is a mixture of perfection.
Burger King Fries - Way back in 1997 they switched from their wedge sytle fies to compete with McDonald's fries
At the time I was still very young, and didn't quite grasp how disgusting
McDonald's is, because of the happy meal brain washing seattletimes.nwsource.com...
I was against
the King's new fries. Now as a grown adult I have to say I love the king's fries. The perfect golden brown batter coating makes for a near perfect
fry. They not only have a perfect texture but they are flat out yummy. They accompany the flame broiled burger perfectly.
KFC Potato Wedges- These are not actual fries, but I love them. They seam to have a similar seasoning to Arby's curly fries (msg warning). I love
how crunchy the out side is, and how fat the baked potato inside is. The best thing is if you have a Taco Bell/ KFC combo near you, you can ask them
to use the wedges in the Taco Bell potato burrito. The potato burrito with the weges is 20x better then the traditional potato burrito
White castles according style fries- This is a regional burger chain many people have not had. The fries are fairly generic according fries, which I
LOVE. The outside is a crispy gold color covered with salt, the inside is packed with soft potato. There isn't a whole lot to be said about them,
other then then simple and damn good.
Whataburger fries and Wendys Fries- Whataburger is a regional chain, Wendy's is national. Their fires are basically the same. they are fairly think
and have a sogginess to them. When properly salted they are amazing. As soon as you take a bite the potato seam to melt in your mouth. Ketchup is
ideal for these fries, I think they make for the perfect In ketchup catalyst. Whataburger's fancy ketchup come in these perfect dipping trays,
similar what honey mustard for chicken strips comes in.
I did not add McDonald's fries to this list because I don't like them that much. Their fries tend to be inconsistent. Out of 10 times the fries at
McDonalds might be good 2 times. Usually they are to hard or to salty. They are also a bit to thin for me overall.
