The Best French Fries in America Are Right Here in Central New York
French fries are serious business. A bad french fry can make you feel sad, while a good batch can put a smile on your face for hours. Just me? Okay...
Apparently, I'm not the only one who feels that way, because a food critic from the Los Angeles Times takes his french fries seriously, too. So much so, he published a comprehensive ranking of french fries in United States. Turns out, 3 of the top 5 fries are available right here in Central New York.
The fries were graded on two criteria: taste and texture.
Here's where it all came down. The BEST fries are (in order):
- Five Guys
- Del Taco
- Steak n Shake
Five Guys snatches the fry crown from McDonald's.
The WORST fries?
- In-N-Out Burger
As a fry connoisseur myself, I have to agree with his assessment - both Five Guys and McDonald's make amazing fries - even though they're different fry experiences.
I'm also partial to Wendy's fries, and, while I enjoy the Whopper - Burger King's fries are the WORST. That weird coating just ruins the whole thing.
Of course, these are all franchise fries. Where are your favorite non-franchise fries in Central New York?
