Going to run a poll, but want to include as many as I can. Can't include things like in and out, etc. as they aren't national. But want to include more than fast food.

*edit, poll added. I'm not adding all of those white trash suburb places like applebees, etc. I added Chilis. If you really think one of those places has the best fries out there, vote for chilis so we can laugh at you. I think this is a pretty good sampling.

I haven't tried most places in the OP but out of the ones I've had Five Guys is the clear winner

Arby's curly fries are also legit. The seasoned ones, I mean.

Even we have both of those! Our Steak 'n' Shake has been here for over 20 years. And we're always the last place to get anything. Our Popeyes just opened last year.

DQ is a great call. Can't believe that hadn't been mentioned yet.
