Freddy's fries are my favorite, mostly because of the seasoning though.

I don't discriminate against any fries based on shape. Thick, thin, long, short, waffle... I enjoy them all.

As long as they're hot and properly seasoned, I don't think I've ever had a fry I didn't care for.... in moderation of course.

For fries out I'm partial to Five Guy's fries. Still home made fries are my best choice. Top 'em with cheese or ???. It's all good as long at the fries are not frozen.

How they are cooked matters more to me than the shape. They should be well-seasoned and served fresh and hot, so hot that they have to cool for a few seconds before you can eat them.

I agree with the mention of Freddy’s above, for a chain they do have tasty fries

We have a brewery/restaurant in Indianapolis not far from where I work called Hopcat, they serve the best fries I have ever had, anywhere. Everyone calls them Crack Fries because they are addictive.

Even hash browns with the addition of onions in the works is a very tasty form of fried potatoes. Browning in a cast iron skillet also influences the quality of the fries.

On occasions I've had cottage fries or little cube shaped fried potatoes. Sort of like potato salad cuts only fried.

You would think it's a science based on how many people CAN'T cook them right!
