some depraved soul.

I didn't go with Five Guys because I went there recently for the first time in a long while and the fries were soggy and too oily and generally gross and it made me question if I just got a bad batch or if all my happy memories of Five Guys fries were lies.
So I voted for Red Robin, many happy memories

McDonalds does not sell any product that should legally qualify as french fries
Burger King and Wendys and Arbys have good fries for fast food joints
Shake Shack has great burgers and shakes but I never get the fries because I find them boring. These days, I don't get the burgers or shakes either, but that's another story.

We're not eating out now, but when we would get home from Five Guys we would put the fries in the air fryer for 4 minutes and ::chef's kiss::

I save the leftovers for the next morning and crisp them up in a pan as hash browns to go with eggs

This has been my experience with Five Guys every time I've tried them over the last 4 or 5 years.

That sounds great.

Also, re: those bashing Five Guys Fries--I get it. The fries that are just in the bag usually end up having crispy edges, and the ones inside the cup end up being a gooey mess. This is an inevitable result of how they pack them and I do not begrudge you not liking it, but I did factor that into my decision. The bag fries are just so good that I can overlook the soft ones.

No Five Guys fries have gone down hill in the last five years. They used to be consistently great and now they've struck out too many times in a row for me to go back.

Is the Five Guys at Presidents Place? I never went there when I was working in-office, although people would get it all the time, and the office constantly smelled like their fries. The cooks in Lincoln are consistently good.

Yeah there's one there. I think there's one in Braintree too across from the Plaza near the cinema.
