French Fries War! McDonald’s v. Burger King v. Wendy’s Who Has the Best Fries

Nothing goes better with your favorite burger like a piping hot serving of golden french fries. That pretty much goes with any of the many fast food burger chain restaurants in America. That is especially true when you consider the top 3 burger chains in the United States; Burger King, McDonald’s and Wendy’s

While French fries are typically cut potatoes that are deep fried to a crispy, golden brown goodness, each of the one of the fast food giant makes their special. This uniqueness is what sets each one apart and usually endears their loyal customers to remain loyal.

What is so special about the BK Fries, McDonald’s Fries and Wendy’s Fries?

Burger King French Fries

Burger King offers two distinctly different French Fry options in its restaurants; standard cut french fries and a unique variety that are much healthier and have a satisfying flavor. The fries are referred to as Satisfries and are pressed into a crinkle-cut shape.


McDonald’s French Fries 

McDonald’s French Fries are uniformly cut from fully peeled Russet Burbank Potatoes and Shepody Potatoes. They are deep fried in a zero transfat oil until golden brown. They are lightly sprinkled with salt just before they are served to the customer and are available in small, medium and large sizes.

Wendy’s French Fries

Wendy’s natural cut fries are made from whole russet potatoes that are cut and deep fried with the peel still on. After they are removed from the oil bath, they are liberally sprinkled with sea salt for seasoning. The natural french fries are available in small, medium and large size. Wendy’s did not stop there however, they took their Natural Cut Fries to a new level with the Baconator®Fries. They took a serving of Natural Cut Fries and smothered them with a creamy cheese sauce, shredded Cheddar Cheese, and Applewood Smoked Bacon. They added a second specialty fries called Bacon Ranch Fries which is a serving of Natural Cut Fries with Applewood Smoked Bacon, Italian 3 cheese blend, and Creamy Ranch Sauce.
