I use mayonnaise alot...sometimes mixed with ketchup. Ranch dressing, which I don't think is all that uncommon anymore. I used to do something strange with mixing sauces at Arby's, too, but I don't remember what- it has been AGES since I ate there!!

I don't use any odd condiments, I don't believe, but I do know of people who like to get french fries and a frosty from Wendy's and dip their fries in the ice cream, yuck, that just does not sound good to me at all. lol But I guess each to their own. I will stick to ketchup, bbq sauce, or cheese for my fries. Thanks for posting the discussion, have a great day. ~Nelly~

Ah the french fry, so versatile! I prefer chili and cheese. But will resort to ketchup, BBQ Sauce, Honey mustard or whatever other dipping sauce I currently have handy. Also like to dip in my mashed potatoes with gravy. (we get fries and mashed potates when we order from the chicken place because we all like mashed potatoes and my oldest daughter loooves fries)

Well i dip my fries with gravy sauce. It actually tastes good.Especially when i eat out at fastfood restaurants like Mcdonald's and Jollibee. But sometimes they charge a fee for asking gravys. Had anyone here tried using gravy in their fries too?

I'm a picky eater so all I eat is ranch... I hate mayonaise but also I love those "secret" sauces from fast food places. They're so yummy! Haha

Well I love chilli cheese fries but I dont know if that counts as actually dipping my fries in something. I love hot sauce and french fries. Hot sauce and ranch dressing with fries are AWESOME.

I like to put garlic powder on my french fries, and dip potato chips in ketchup. xD

garlic powder...I never thought of that...I put garlic salt on everything so it's probably pretty tasty on fries too

Garlic would be good I bet! I do not like ketchup on chips...tried it once and it is just not for me. Thanks for responding!

I like to dip my fries in tarter sauce. I will also use McDonalds sauces(mix sweet and sour with hot mustard). I love cheese on my fries. I like using ranch when I have cheese. French fries are awesome.. I think anything works on a potato.

I guess I'm boring - I just use ketchup, and not always that. It depends on the kind of fries I'm eating.

I like the french fries in McDonald's. Usual dip would be ketchup and mayonnaise but I also dipped it in sundae ice cream. A friend introduces that to me when I was in college. At first , I thought it would not taste nice but when I tried it , not bad after all.
