Tissigirl I was so disappointed when I heard about McDonald's fries. My sister has been vegetarian for almost 20 years and used to treat herself to their fries all the time because she loved them so much.

I didn't notice any weird filmy feeling on their fries....but now I probably will!

I was surprised that my boyfriend and I were able to find the veggie burger at a BK at a truck stop off the interstate last weekend when we were on a road trip. It was in a weird place on the menu though (just like the pic someone posted on another reply). Their fries are ok, but not the best imo. I like Wendy's and Chick Fil A fries the best (I don't worry about the cross contamination thing much either). My favorite is to get the fries and a frosty and dip the fries in the Frosty, even when i was an omni.

Fromper I used to really like the Wendy's fries, though I haven't been there in a while. Since I eat there so often, I haven't tried the new ones yet, but I'm already disappointed in the fact that they changed the old ones, which were always my favorite fast food fries, even back when I was an omni and ate McD's.

Prepared in the restaurants using a non-hydrogenated vegetable oil. Salt is added after cooking."

So it doesn't mention anything about meat. But i guess it's different in certain countries (i live in England).

Yeah, if you look at the ingredients on the USA site, it will list beef.

Agree on the new Wendy's fries. I have tried them twice, and both times, they left an odd aftertaste in my mouth. They also were overcooked and dry. Maybe I just have a bad Wendy's. BK's fries are just OK. I don't have them very often. Anymore when I get a craving for fries, I hit my local diner. They have takeout and do a great job with fries.

Burger King's fries have always been better than McDonald's, too, and at Burger King you can get a BK Veggie, too.

I agree....they are sweeter and I loooooves me some sweet

no they shouldnt be soggy....but I dont mid fries that have sat round or put in the fridge for a bit.

The BK Veggie Burger should be available everywhere. It's usually under the Other BK Favorites list, not pictured like the meat burgers.

It should be but one of The BKs here doesnt have it and doesnt know why.....LOL.

I'm pretty sure they have a separate fryer, but not 100%. I don't care about that kind of cross contamination.

I do like Wendy's fries, though!

I agree on the weird filmy feeling since the mid 90s fry change. I prefer the onion rings but they don't like me.

danakscully64 Yes, I do. I expect everyone to hide it, that's why I asked.

danakscully64 I've only had Whataburger fries once, when I lived in Texas. They weren't worth $2. Meh.

Fries get eaten first, immediately. That's the rule. You can put the ketchup on a napkin in your lap, dip with one hand, and drive home with the other
11-05-2011 03:21 PM
Spoonerism What do you guys think of Whataburger's fries? They're vegetarian, and I always thought they tasted very similar to Mcdonald's fries. I haven't had any in a long time, but I remember liking them just as much.

New fries? They're different? I haven't had any in a long time. I always liked them all right, but how are they different now?

Burger King's fries have always been pretty mediocre to me. To me they're just generic cheapo tasting fries.

Yea, no kidding. And don't even think about putting them in the fridge cause then they'll taste like crap.
11-05-2011 03:17 PM
danakscully64 They can be, if not cooked properly. For the most part, they're crispy when I get them. The old fries were good, the new fries are even better.


Wendy's Fries + BBQ =
11-05-2011 03:16 PM
vegan724 I haven't had wendy's fries in probably about 5 years, if not more, but I remember always thinking they were too soggy.
