There may be no food more universally loved than french fries. Think about it, when was the last time you met someone that didn’t like them? And turning down fries is nearly impossible.

But what isn’t settled is where to get the best french fries. And with National French Fry Day coming on July 13, we decided to check out 19 different fast food and fast casual restaurants around New Jersey, tasting 23 different types of fries in total, to crown the best easy-access french fry in New Jersey.

Did we miss any? Where are your favorite fries in the Garden State? Let us know what you think in the comment section.

Stick to ice cream, DQ. These tepid, limp potato sticks masquerading as french fries are an embarrassment to America’s favorite fast food side dish. They aren’t as soft as Dairy Queen’s signature soft serve, but even being close to that means you’re doing something wrong.  

22. Sonic

Sonic’s commercials are hilarious, their burgers tasty and their drinks refreshing. Their fries are chewy and flavorless. I mean, just look at that fry on the left of the box, trying to escape. Even the fries themselves know how bad they are.

21. Wendy’s

This one hurts. Wendy’s might be my favorite fast food joint overall, with its terrific burgers and chicken nuggets making it an easy choice for family road trips. But these fries? Meh. Not bad by any measure, but just … blah. Not enough crunch, not enough seasoning, not enough overall flavor. These are delicious when dunked in a Frosty (don’t come for me, fry purists) but not on their own. 

20. Roy Rogers (classic fries)

Roy Rogers makes regular fries? Who knew? I wish I didn’t know. These fries pale in comparison to their signature curly fries, lacking the crunch and flavor that make them so amazing. Sorry, Roy.
