The 10 Greatest Fast Food French Fries

We've hit mid-November, which means the holiest of days is upon us. The reason for the season is here, people: National Fast Food Day. National Fast Food Day will take place on Thursday, November 16th, Year Of Our Lord 2017. Because of this, we're going to spend the entire day (National Fast Food Day Eve) mentally preparing for how much food we're going to eat tomorrow. The nuggets, burgers, and soda will be plentiful, I'm sure. But the real star of National Fast Food Day is obviously the french fry. Ahh, french fries...those golden, salty, crispy, joyful potatoes that give us LIFE. To help us all make the most of National Fast Food Day, we've compiled a list of the top 10 fast food french fries (try to say that 10 times fast...)

5. Five Guys

These fries are so fresh and homemade you'd think they just came out of your Mom's kitchen. They didn't, though. They were piled high on your tray by that angel Five Guys employee named like, Devin or Trey or something.

6. Del Taco

Okay, whoever (whomever? whoever? whatever) thought of combining french fries with tacos is the real MVP.

7. Smashburger

Sweet potato fries at a fast food restaurant are a rare find, but Smashburger has 'em. And sweet potato fries are healthy, right? It's basically like you're eating a salad.
