List Criteria: Favorite French fries from fast food or fast casual restaurants

The best french fries come in all shapes, sizes and seasonings as they are served up by the best fast food restaurants daily. These greasy, salty potato sticks are the perfect accompaniment to a nice cheeseburger, with chicken strips or in some cases, even with a taco or two. Which fast food restaurant has the best french fries? That's often a matter of opinion but if nothing else, the battle for the best fast food fries is a fierce one.

In the traditional sense, McDonald's french fries are a classic favorite with their crispy outside and warm and steamy inside. But there are plenty of others right on their tail. Wendy's Natural Cut Fries and In-n-Out's shoestring french fries are favorites as well.

For those who like a bit more flavor, there is another competition brewing among the Cajun fry makers. Arby's is known for their spiced curly fries, Rally's and Checker's have their seasoned fries and Five Guys provides ample taste and quantity with their Cajun fries. Even Popeye's Chicken puts out a pretty mean Cajun fries which battles the KFC potato wedges among fried chicken lovers.

Similarly, another trend recently in the french fry world is the introduction of sweet potato fries. Both Carl's Jr. and Burger King have introduced sweet potato fries recently though some only for a limited time, with mixed results.

So whether you enjoy the crispy straight fries, waffle fries, crinkle-cut fries, those curly fries with the perfect amount of cajun seasoning or even sweet potato fries, there's sure to be the perfect french fries out there for you somewhere to enjoy with your favorite fast food burger.
