Lucas Kwan Peterson is a food columnist in Los Angeles. At great personal risk to his own reputation, he decided to undertake a gargantuan task: ranking the 19 most popular LA fast food french fries. The internet, of course, had some very strong feelings about his opinions.


As soon as Peterson's ranking hit the LA Times, people were in an uproar:

Among his most unpopular picks was putting In-N-Out's burger's dead last—sacrilege among any good Los Angeles resident. He wrote of In-N-Out's fries:

The top three fries Peterson tried? Five Guys, McDonald's, and Del Taco, in that order.


In a divisive age of big opinions, the superiority of certain french fries is no exception.
