    There are many different styles:
    Normal cut
    Steak cut
    Krinkle cut
    Waffle cut
    Home style
    Raw (nasty?)

    I personally like the waffle fries from Chick-fil-a. They just need to add a little salt to them.

    Had some of the best in San Diego a couple of weeks ago... man.

    Crispy. A little seasoning is ok every now and again.

    Fries hould definately be served hot. And, not undercooked potato-ey mush. They should be almost completely crunchy. I also dislike large wedges of fries. That's just the restaraunt filling up the patron on the cheap.

    The proper (French) way. None of this cookie cutter crap you get at fast food restaurants.

    I also like French Fries made the Pittsburgh way. And for those of you who don't know, you use fries as a topping for anything.

    The Quebec way.

  12. I am a big fan of crinkle cut or shoestring, deep fried until crispy. Salted then dipped in ketchup, or used to make poutine. Curly fries are good too, but I never really have bought them, never think of it.

    I too, don't like my fries with much potato-ness to them, just crispy and crunchy and golden brown.

    I like mine on top of a naked Brad Cook.

    Did I say that or think it?

    Seasoned. Waffle will suffice in most cases, though.

    You don't have to say OR think it. It's a given.

    I like gettign whatever is on sale of the grocer and take them home and add seasonings.

    Toss on red and black pepper and then garlic salt.... then they're good.

    You missed "Salty"
    Usually I like them cut thinner and generally more well done... but salty is probably the most important attribute, IMO.
    Yes, I know that there are those of you who take their french fries seriously, which probably means that you think the quality of the fries is important. Of course I appreciate a good french fry... but let's be realistic. Most fries aren't good, and salt always makes them better.
