I love french fries. Last night I had a kick-ass dinner of BBQ'd t-bone with a huge side of delicious crinkle-cut fries. As I was eating I decided I should make a thread about this awesome food known as the french fry.

What are your favorite types? Where are the best? Myself I love crinkle-cut fries. I usually buy a big bag of Ore-Ida and bake them up in the oven. They come out crispy and delicious. Unfortunately no major fast-food chains I know of carry crinkle-cut. They all carry the bottom-tier fry known as 'shoestring.' Except Arby's. The only good thing about that place is the fries. The best places to get fries in town are usually little family-owned burger joints. There's one in town here run by a nice old Korean couple that makes amazing burgers and great crinkle cut fries. I'd eat there every day if I could.

Shoestrings are different from regular fries we get here. Shoestrings are usually really thin. I like the normal old thick, straight fries. A & W has some pretty damn good fries.

Are the A&W's where you live stand-alone restaurants? Because all the A&Ws up here are attached to Shell gas stations and the food isn't very good.

Hooters has the best curly fries. I like regular fries though too, like the ones at McDonald's. Are those shoestrings?

I looove french fries. All sorts. My favourite are probably crispy and straight, but I'll eat em all.

In Canada we have something called poutine, which is a bowl of fries, with melting cheese and gravy. It's amazing when you're drunk. Man I could go for some poutine right now.

Yeah, those are generally considered shoestring. Most fast food burger joints (BK, McD's, Wendy's) have shoestring fries. Carl's Jr. though has these awesome natural cut fries that are kinda like steak fries with skin, though slightly smaller.

I remember a few months ago my boss at Wendy's actually ran out of Wendy's fries and had to buy some boxes of fries from Costco. They were these big, thick almost steak fries that were delicious and more popular than the regular fries.

A less healthy but more delicious option: fry those babies up in a frying pan that is drenched in oil. So god damned delicious.

I do this all the time. Aslide from that, I like curly fries a lot and I'll eat tater tots every once in a while. To be honest, I love the way they taste but I always feel like my arteries are clogging when I eat them.

Old Bay is indeed good. Lawry's Seasoned Salt also does the job pretty well.

Lately, I've been making my own similar to mac's. About the only thing I do differently is I toss the cut fries in a bowl with about half a tablespoon of olive oil instead of drizling it on.

Of the kinds you get at restaurants, there really aren't any I'd say I don't like. Steak fries are probably my favorite, though - I generally eat my fries with a substantial amount of ketchup and you can scoop up more with those. I also remember curly fries being good, but I haven't been anywhere in a while that serves 'em.

I tried to include the pictures in the poll but it didn't work so I said "fuck it, everybody knows what fries look like" but apparently not.

So here:

Crinkle:

Steak:

Shoestring:

Curly:

Tater Tots:

Dr. House: Isn't it interesting... religious behaviour is so close to being crazy that we can't tell them apart.

Dr. House: True. It's a life and you should end it.
Eve: Every life is sacred.
Dr. House: Come on. Talk to me. Don't quote me bumper stickers.
Eve: It's true.
Dr. House: It's meaningless.
Eve: It means that every life matters to God.
Dr. House: Not to me. Not to you. Judging by the number of natural disasters, not to God either.

I don't think i've ever seen curly fries or tater tots, but the crinkled ones always feel a little fancier and nicer than shoestring.
