Although I never had Anthony Bourdain's, who claims his deep fried potatoes at Les Halles--his restaurant--, I still firmly believe McDonalds has the best recipe despite its synthetic nature. So lets make a tally and decide a winner.

I'm not sure about that. I think boardwalk fries are pretty good, but so are the basic fries at McDonlads and Burger King. I think they are all pretty good and worth trying. I haven't had too many french fries that I dont like. I think they are all tasty and delicious in their own way.

I agree. As far as fast food goes mcdonalds has the best fries. I like wendy's too, but they are only good when they are hott and a lot of times they are soggy as soon as they cool down. Mcdonalds definately wins my vote.

This is a really good discussion and I am sure that there are a lot of people out there who like fast food places,and they like eating there a lot,and I am sure that there are people who will eat at one fast food place more than others because of the different food they have,and I know that different restaurants have different menu items and some things are better than others,and I am sure that a lot of people like french fries,and different people probably like french fries from different places like some people probably like McDonald's french fries while others might like them from other places like Burger King,I am a big fry fan,and I love eating french fries even though me and my fiance are on a diet so we are trying to eat more Subway since it is healthier,but when it comes to french fries I think McDonald's has the best french fries,because of the way they cook them,and whenever me and my fiance go to McDonald's we always get fries,and I could make a meal just out of their french fries,and Burger King has good french fries too,but they are no where as good as McDonald's and I would never eat theirs for a meal,and I think McDonald's will always have the best french fries,have a great day,good luck with your life,and all of your mylotting goals,and Happy Posting.

If I ever go for fries i never go for fast food places. I go to local BBQ joint. all BBQ joints make the best fries. And sometimes the cheapest. it's also good to take a cup of their sauce and dip your fries in them. Even mix it with ketchup. If I don't have the money the I make my own. cut em up, season them, toss em in the fryer.

The best fries for me would be at Wendy's because the taste is well balanced (it's my opinion of course), the french fries from McDonalds is okey but these fries is way too salty for my health sake.

Since McDonalds is, far and away, the most popular fast food place, I think you are going to find that their french fries are going to win this contest, even if they weren't the best. My vote is for McDonalds french fries because they are CONSISTENTLY THE BEST. They are always crunchy and always fresh, and you don't NEED KETCHUP WITH THEM. THEY TRULY STAND ALONE AT THE TOP OF THE HEAP. Thank you for starting this post.
