Many times both steak and crinkle fries are never all the way done at restaurants so they're least favorite - for that reason. Never liked crinkle fries. I love thinner fries as they seem to crisp up better. Thin to medium cut is best. I also do like waffle fries, they'd be second favorite. Curly fries are great also.. I'm not picky long as they're not over or under done and served hot! Only seasoning I use is salt and pepper. French fries are my absolute favorite food. I make fresh cut fries(again, many restaurants can't get these right either) at home a lot. Nothing beats that!

I also agree with Freddy's fries being very good!

Well done Nathan's fries; crisp outside and potatoey inside. They're medium thick and crinkled.

I like fries that taste like potato, so thick cut ones are best. I really do not like the skinny fries, may as well eat a bowl of oil.

I like thicker cut fries, but not the super wide steak fries. When you get steak fries, bout half of then tend to be the slightly smaller off-cuts, and those I find to be perfect. Bigger than a normal American large french fry, but smaller that a steak fry.

And since they vary in thickness from the curvature of the potato, the ends are crispy and the middles have a nice starchy center. Those off cuts in the steak fries remind me of the way English chips are cut.

I am not a big fan of the shoestring fry or the other fancy cuts like crinkle or waffle, but any of them, well cooked is still pretty tasty.

Curly Fries, they hold stuff better, like chili cheese.
