I typically eat the fries first. Then about midway through that effort, I'll alternate b/t fries & burger/sandwich. I don't drink soda so I'll drink water throughout my meal whenever I'm thirsty. No ketchup for me either.

Sooooo many times if I place an order at a FF drive-thru, I order my sandwhich, fries, and say, "no drink, no ketchup, and that's all" when finishing my order. The employee gets then says, "Is that in a combo meal?" or "What do you want to drink?" Some of these employees can't think that someone would just order a sandwhich and fries.

And... I make sure that the best tasting thing is my last bite, depending on whether the fries or the burger is the better tasting one that time.
I usually focus on the burger first, since I consider it the better part of meal, but I do like fries as an accompaniment when I've eating it. I'm getting a bit bored of fries, actually. I often just order a burger.

I take one bite of the burger, then a french fry dipped in ketchup, then a sip of the drink, repeat until it's all gone.

I eat the burger first, then the fries while drinking the shake. I don't eat fast food too often, but a McDonald's meal always MUST include a shake - the best part of the meal.

Well like today I was driving after picking up some burgers and fries at Burger King. So as i drove to visit and eat with my mother.. the wife and I and Granddaughter were eating the fries. It's more of a finger food and not a big hazard while driving. But, normally I eat them together and take a sip of drink as needed. No biggie. No rhyme.. no reason.. just eating. I too could do with or without ketchup for my fries. Funny how well shakes/malts go with fries!

Ah yes, when going through drive through I just pick at the fries while I'm driving...they're usually half gone by the time I get home. If I eat in, I often eat the burger and fries and then keep most of the drink for the road.

I'm the same exact way (except that I only eat chicken - no burgers), but I actually am diagnosed with mild OCD... so that's my excuse, hehe.

Generally I will alternate a bite of chicken, a fry or two, followed by a sip of (diet) soda & repeat. Mostly that's just so I don't run out of one item waaaay before the others, but I do like to have a little soda left at the end - although I can always just refill, which I usually do before leaving. Wow, that sounds really OCD, doesn't it? I swear, it's not something I think about consciously at the time. LOL

P.S. I only use salt and/or BBQ sauce with my fries, and either BBQ, ranch or honey mustard for the chicken.

Am I the only one who puts some of the fries IN the burger? It's the best way to enjoy both. After burger has had a number of fries laid on the patty, I then eat all the remaining fries before they get cold (occasionally dipping in just a hint of ketchup). Then the burger, sipping a Coke throughout.
