National French Fry Day 2019 Freebies and Deals


Burgers had their moment during Fourth of July grill-outs, and now it’s time for French Fries (beloved side dish and fast food stable) to shine. National French Fry Day is on July 13.

To see which fries Americans crave most, we surveyed 1,062 respondents via Google Surveys. McDonald’s serves our favorite fries, according to our July 2019 Google survey of 1,062 respendents. Chick-fil-A is a distant second:

  • McDonalds – 43%
  • Chick-fil-A – 18%
  • Wendy’s – 13%
  • In-N-Out Burger – 9%
  • Arby’s – 8%
  • Shake Shack – 5%
  • Other – 4%

McDonald’s was a clear winner across every age demographic, but Chick-fil-A is embraced a bit more by the 45-to-54 crowd (23% in this age bracket said Chick-fil-A fries are their favorite).
