    McDonald's fries are of consistent quality, but they are far from the best.

    Personally I prefer thicker wavy fries or fat steak fries, but when I reach for the skinny processed-shit fries, I reach for Wienerchnitzel's. Especially their chili-cheese fries. Soaked in oil, the fries themselves have a moist and gooey consistency, packed with rich potato flavor. The Chili is the nastiest, saltiest, probably reconstituted-powdered mix with water and bits of circus animal added; and the cheese is pre-shredded and with a powdery preservative that disappears as the cheese shreds melt -- and the cheese itself "sweats" as it melts, just like a good fresh hot dog does. They are the nastiest, unhealthiest, saltiest, and by far the most delicious fries I've always tasted. It is no wonder that Wienerschnitzels are always located nary a block away from public schools.

    Steak fries just have too much unseasoned potato content to be acceptable to me. Now I can get on board with waffle fries, that seems the better way to make a more substantial fry that still has enough surface area to volume.

    Write your congressman. Tell him he sucks.
