Fries before guys. Ok, that's not fair to say, it should really be "fries before anyone and anything". You know it's true.

There's nothing better than a good batch of french fries. You know what I'm talking about. Fried to golden perfection with a crunchy outside and soft potato-y inside then sprinkled with just the right amount of salt.

Making the perfect french fry is truly an art form. So, which fast food restaurant has their french fry-ing down to a science? According to the L.A. Times Fast Food French Fry Rankings, Five Guys are the reigning king of fries.

There's a  reason why they call themselves Five Guys Burgers and Fries, because their fries are delicious! And, obviously, the burgers aren't too shabby either.

Now, I'm sure you're wondering who else made the L.A. Times fancy fry list, so here are the top five.

  1. Five Guys
  2. McDonald's
  3. Del Taco
  4. Steak 'n Shake
  5. Arby's

No one's trying to mess with a fry that's not in the top five, so I'm leaving them off this post, but if you do want to see what other fast food joints made the list you can take a peek at the full thing on the L.A.Times website.
