National French Fry Day: Where to get the best deals

Curly, wedge, or crinkle – it’s time to get “fry-d” this Friday.

On July 12, the US will come together to revel in the crisp, delectable goodness of one of the best side dishes served — French fries. According to a 2024 second quarter poll by YouGov, French fries are the second most popular American dish behind hamburgers. The popularity percentage difference is 85 to 84 with hamburgers just barely beating their favored counterpart.

What’s more, a 2019 report by Technomic’s Starters, Small Plates & Sides Consumer Trends found that 64 per cent of lunchtime consumers opt for a side of fries, while 58 per cent of dinnertime consumers will order them.

Every year, on the second Friday of July, National French Fry Day is honored, prompting a slew of restaurants and fast-food chains to slash the price of fries or hand them out for free. Though the celebration wasn’t officially listed on the National Day Calendar until 2022, establishments and fans of the fried food have been recognizing National French Fry Day for years.

From McDonald’s to Wendy’s, see where to stop by on Friday to get the best deals for National French Fry Day.
