It’s a proven fact that the best part of getting fast food from a drive-thru is the french fries. Ok, it’s not a proven fact but I’m pretty sure we can all agree that whenever we get drive-thru food, our french fries never make it home because we’re tempted to snack on those delicious fries while we drive home!

Whether it's a late-night snack or a quick bite on the go, those perfectly seasoned strips of potato are a nationwide obsession. But there’s always been a great debate on which fast food joint serves up the BEST french fries!

What Are Texans Obsessed With?

According to a new study, over 40% of Americans are obsessed with french fries, and when it comes to the top fry spot, Texans have spoken: it's all about McDonald's fries. That's right, Texas is just one of 32 states declaring their love for those iconic golden arches.

However, Texans aren’t the only people who think that McDonald’s has the best french fries.

According to the study, most Americans prefer McDonald’s fries compared to any other fast food restaurant. States like California, Louisiana, Florida, Oklahoma, and more!

As for the best fry topping, aside from ketchup, I am happy to report that Ranch is STILL the best dressing to dip your french fries in!
