Which Fast Food Chain Makes the Best French Fries?

Inquiring minds want to know: Which of the fast food chains operating here in Southern California make the best french fries? Actually, it is the Fast Food Maven at the OC Register who is wondering, and you can chip in with your pick in their poll. Wendy's is about to debut a "hotter, crispier" box of fried starchy goodness that are "skin-on fries seasoned with sea salt." Sea salt! How chic! Meanwhile, you might be a loyalist (McDonald's), a purist (In-N-Out), or non-conformist (Jack in the Box's curly fries). However, we can't fathom who would select "tube steak smothered in underware [sic]" from the list. You must really hate fries.
