    this is very tough. it all depends on where and with what. when i go to cheeburger cheeburger, we get the "frings" combo. but in general we all wish it were about 80% rings, and 20% fries, but that's because the fries there aren't the greatest.

    in general though, fries for sure. i think that overall, bad fries are not as bad as bad rings

    Rings. Never been a huge fan of frenchfries. If I am at Wendys I go for the baked potatos (wish they offered baked sweet potato). I will usually ask for celery/carrot sticks, sliced tomatos or bell peppers, etc. depending on where I am eating out.

    Mostly fries. Occasionally though, nothing sounds better than some beer-battered onion rings. Mmmmm...

    I'm guessing that the OP means onion rings but who knows?

    If that's the case, I prefer fried potatoes, especially heavily-seasoned fries.

    If you're talkin' about just potatoes, I like rings and fires the same. I prefer potato fries over onion rings though. But depending on my mood I'll have a craving for onion rings, they are usually really really greasy.

    At Burger King, sometimes you order fries but get a couple rings with them. Simply Amazing. I think they should have half and half options.

    :D I thought I was the only one who got excited when I got a "present!"

    I always order fries, it seems, but mostly because I never think of rings.... I had taken a long time off from fast food till recently, though. Mmmm, rings.

    Depends on where I'm at. Most fast food rings are total crap IMHO, but homemade rings are second to none.

    Usually, fast food places have their fried stuff sitting over the oil vats, when tends to give them that extra greasy feeling. I don't know of any where that is standard procedure but the managers obviously don't care.

    I worked for a place where we made our onion rings from freshly-peeled onions and the same batter that we used for our fried mushrooms and fish. As onion rings go, they were quite good, especially without the overly greasy feel.

    Onion Rings -- rings of onion (typically the big white or yellow onions) batter dipped and deep fried.

    There's actually a very similar Indian food, which also makes onion rings feel slightly homey. :)

    Tough choice. I've dramatically decreased the intake of fries and onion rings for the past 3 years down to once per year. That's right, one serving of fries/onion rings once a year. Trying my best to make it zero per year...it's tough though..the greasy goodness :D

    In general I like rings. I think they're marginally healthier than fries, too.

    Not a big fan of Burger King "onion" rings, though. I think onion rings are to Burger King what potato chips are to Pringles...

    Delicious! It was (not totally) covered with some Hershey's chocolate syrup. Yum!

    This is exactly the reason this question is so important.:eek: ...given that you do not have one or the other that often...
