    To me the fry has to be crispy but not burnt. I don't care for the slightly soggy limp fries from five guys they are good but I prefer a crispy out side and a soft inside. In and Out has had the best fries out there so far and i have eaten every single fry on the list.

    They cook them just right. Burger King fries have a weird taste. KFC and Popeyes are a very close second to I&O fries.

    No Jack in the Box or Whataburger?

    I think the closest thing we have to English chips here at a fast food place would be steak fries from KFC.

    I only have experience with McDonalds fries. Once or twice a year I break down and pull in and get an order. However, the last time I did I ate them on the way to a call and when I came back out to my truck the smell was really foul. No, Tango not because I sharted on the way to the call. Anyways, I haven't had the urge since.
    p.s Does Popeyes make fries? They've all folded up here but I just remember their red beans and rice. Drool.

    Tough decision between 5 Guys and In and Out, both are good!
    Voted In and Out because it's a little cheaper.

    Can't remember the name and I'm pretty sure it was in a little town called Dunoon down the Firth of Clyde from Holy Lock.

    I seem to have had my beer goggles on most of the shore leave time back then, anyways, it was fresh cod, beer-batter fried in animal fat along with the chips!

    OMG, it came in a news-print funnel and on went the sea salt and malt vinegar. I have NEVER had fish and chips that good since!!!!

    I swear if there wasn't an outstanding warrant for me back in Glasgow I'd go back just for the chips!

    I'd love to hear that story over a few cold ones sometime, Cane. :)

    Anyhow, I voted McD's if you can get them fresh and hot. The only way I can eat Wendy's fries is by dipping them in the Frosty.

    Of course, my experience is very limited. No 5 Guys, no I&O, no nothing but the big 3 around here. We do have a Hardees and I prefer them burger wise to most, but not the fries.

    I gotta hit the 5 Guys in Winchester the next time I am out that way. :p

    On your list, McD's. Checkers has pretty good seasoned fries.

    What does that mean? We don't have an In-and-Out Burger in my neck of the woods but my son just came back from a trip to Cali and Nevada and said he had a burger there made "animal style" and it was very good. I think in the burger that just meant with grilled onions.


    I think Burger King has pretty good fries.
