The Rest of the Best: Houston's Top 10 French Fries

Guys. Hey, listen. We need to talk.

It's about the annual Best of Houston® issue.

I think you know what you did. But the problem, you see, is that you keep doing the same thing almost every single year. Something has to change.

Y'all keep voting for McDonald's as "Best French Fries." Every. Single. Year.

It's honestly baffling. You have really good taste otherwise. And although I'll be the first to admit that I'm a sucker for McDonald's iced coffee (it's cheap and tasty!), the fries are simply nothing to write home about and haven't been great in a very, very, very long time.

So take a little while and think about it. You've got a whole year or so until the next Best of Houston® issue comes out. Sample some of the terrific selection of french fries we've rounded up for you below. Hey, I hear that even the sweet potato fries at Burger King are pretty damn good.

Just please stop with the freaking McDonald's fries.
