Fries are one of the best foods, especially fast food fries. From McDonald's and Burger King to Wendy's and Arby's, there are TONS of options to chow down on our favorite fried potato treat. Today, I want to figure out how to get the MOST out of my order of fries. Which restaurant gives me the most fries for my money and are their order sizes a TRICK to make us spend more on less food? I volunteered to eat my way through to the answer!

    I've worked fast food. The amount of fries you get depends on how much the person filling the package cares. When I worked at Burger KIng, I actually put way more than I probably should have into the pack....my manager once chewed me out for it.

    As an ex fast food employee of Hardee's (Carl's Jr in the south) I can attest that large fries (especially when considering curly fries) is a straight up lie. Medium was indeed the largest size at my store and depending on the employee you have scooping your fries a large can be smaller than a kids size.

    Former McDonalds employee here. I wanna mention something about the under filled larges. It’s not always about saving money (whoever is working the fry station is really low on the totem poll and doesn’t care about cutting costs). It’s often about saving time and getting the food to the customer as soon as possible. If there’s only a few fries ready, and the next batch in the fryer still has two minutes until it’s done, we find ourselves thinking “😕 Can I make a large out of this?” At McDonald’s all of the monitors have timers on them. From the register, to the people on table, to the drive thru, everyone has timers that tell us how fast we should be working. So time is the biggest factor. Not saying that makes anything ok. Just explaining where it may come from some of the time. And yeah those small bags do hold a lot! Once a manager did scold me for overfilling a small. But never for a medium or large.

    I worked at Mcdonalds a few years back, and I remember one of the things that stood out to me about training is when the manager told me I should always hold the cardboard fry container by pressing on the front and back rather than the sides when filling it because holding it by the sides makes it so more fries fit while squeezing from the front/back will make less fries fit in whilst still making it appear full. Here's to hoping that's not the standard.
