2.  French fries are the second-most popular American dish, behind hamburgers.



3.  French fries are the #2 food people can’t live without . . . second only to pizza.



4.  In a ranking of the “ultimate” fast food fries, McDonald’s is #1 by a long shot.  Chick-fil-A is second, followed by Five Guys, Wendy’s, and Arby’s.



5.  When it comes to the style of fries, “regular” is the most popular, with curly fries being a close second.  Steak-cut, crinkle, and waffle fries round out the Top Five.
