Of the chains, my favorite fries are Five Guys, by a wide margin.

Atlanta-specific, but best fast-food fries anywhere are at The Varsity.

As an Atlanta native who has loved The Varsity for more than 40 years, I regret that I can’t agree. They can be great if they are cooked enough, but too often they are undercooked, greasy, and soggy.

I had a burger and fries at 5 Guys last week. Picked them up from the counter immediately and opened the bag quickly. They were really good. I wouldn’t call them crispy but they were not limp at all. Length is good and quantity excellent. I only have two issues: 1. They need a bun capable of holding up to the toppings they offer, and 2. $17+ for a double bacon cheeseburger, regular fries and a small drink is what?..... TWICE the price of In-n-Out?? WAY better, I think, but twice????

This comes up every time with the fast food comparisons- There really are different price tiers.. with McD's, In n Out, Burger King, etc, on one tier and then Five Guys, Shake Shack, etc, on the higher tier.

In and Out and McDonald’s/BK aren’t in the same tier, in my opinion.

Yes, good point, they do need to be cooked correctly. I moved so I'm probably more nostalgic than I would be if I were in town. When they're on, they're very similar to Five Guys. The Onion Rings are amazing too.

Five Guys is closer to 2.5x the price of a similar order at In N Out.

Depending on the location, In N Out’s combo pricing can actually come in cheaper than comparable combos from the McD’s, BK’s, Jack in the Box, etc of the world. INO definitely is not noticeably more expensive than the mainstream fast food joints.
