I picked up a large order at my local BK restaurant for $2.09.
For $2.09, it doesn't seem like I get that much fries. Burger King's fry container taper outward into a squarish wide opening and it seems like it has to be filled pass the brim to really get a good amount of fries. As it stands, a McDonald's large order of fries is taller and seems to give more than Burger King's large for less ($1.89 in my area).
Besides shorting me on fries, the fries I received apparently spent some time sitting in the warmer and were warm rather than hot. Sadness right?
The fries are about the thickness of a No. 2 pencil making them the thickest fries out of the Big Three Burger chains. Texture-wise they remind me of Wendy's old fries but slightly thicker.
Seem my fries were warm going on cold, I found that they retained a slight crispness even after the fry cools.
Overall, Burger King's fries are a definite improvement over the old ones. I particularly liked the thickness which gives them a marked distinction over Wendy's and McDonald's as well as a more potato-y flavor and mouth feel. I still like a good batch of McDonald's fries better but I'd actually pick these up when dining at Burger King unlike the old ones.
