Which fast food chain has the best French fries? (Photo by Matt Cardy/Getty Images)

Times may change. Diets may change. However, one thing remains the same. People love French fries, even if they were invented in Belgium. I don’t know a single person who can resist popping at least one French fry into their mouth. Carnivores, omnivores, pescetarians, flexitarians, vegetarians, vegans…fries work for everyone. And if you get them from a fast food joint, they don’t cost much! French fries truly are the food of the people.

Most people have opinions about which fast food chain serves the best fries. TastingTable has ranked 25 of them from worst to best. Personally, I feel that local favorite Bojangles was disrespected. Their perfectly-seasoned fries are much better than 18th in the nation. You can see the entire list HERE. Check out the top six choices that are available in the Charlotte area below.
