Here's our question: Why do they bother? With the accessibility and price of McDonald's fries, it doesn't pay to mess up a kitchen with results that probably won't be as satisfying -- especially when you crave the genuine article. Hey, we even know people who'll pick up $8 sandwiches elsewhere, then complete their meals with fries from the drive-thru.
