I like joint compound on my fries, the more the better. It's a challenge to eat everything before it hardens.

    Hate shoestrings too...And yes, Nathan's,when fresh made correctly can't be beat....When in England...great "chips" must have MALT vinegar!...regular fries,just a good ketchup. I'm not one for cheese fries...that gooey cheese on so many things these days...all you taste is gooey cheese...a waste of a great fry!

      There isn't a potato made that isn't my friend, EXCEPT soggy fries. I care less about what shape or how it's cut vs. how it's cooked -should always be crispy on the outside, and fluffy on the inside. I love a good steak fry when it's hot and fresh out of the fryer. (my confession is that I also love those little bits that get stuck in the fryer and cooked an extra time or two and are pretty much nothing but a crispy bite of hot grease)

        I like regular potatoes that get a good overnight soak to remove some of the starch. Then i like 'em cooked twice, once slow and low and a second time in hot oil to get crispy. And I like a lot of ground black pepper along with salt. Gotta have Heinz. Imitation "catsup" doesn't do it for me.

            Anyone ever had animal fries from In & Out Burger? Fries with grilled onions & covered with thousand island! I said yuk until I tried them.

              Nathan's fries are exactly like the ones I grew up eating at Savin Rock in West Haven, Connecticut. Not being able to get them that way, I don't bother ordering fries.

                What's the deal with Penn Station fries? I think they are semi nasty.
