    As stated, do you eat your fries before you eat your burger? Or do you eat your fries along with your burger? A friend at work eats ALL his fries before he touches his burger. His logic was simple.....so the fries don't get cold. But for me, I'm more of a eat my fries along with my burger. How about you?

    My bride jokes that ketchup is my main course since I use so much of it.
    She's pretty much correct!
    Fries usually first, then the meat, bun at the end if I need to sop up some more ketchup!

    That vile, red serum you call "ketchup" is the scourge of this earth and should be eradicated at every opportunity.

    That said, I am also in the "fries before they get cold" crowd, but I do generally have a few bites of burger along the way.

    Depends on the burger. Fast food - almost certainly fries first. Better burger (In-N-Out, The Hat) - concurrently.

    The only thing better than ketchup on fries is fry sauce!

    *wife half of ardee wants me to add that I put BBQ sauce on just about everything, so...again...what do I know? :rolleyes2:

    Your friend eats his burger too slow! I eat my fries along with the burger.

    I'm going to put this right here:

    Haha, I didn't even think about that. I think fries were a separate side order and they are off camera and shared between the wife and I.

    I will always eat fries first then eventually eat them with the burger. Whenever I order a burger with fries combo my hand will always reach for the fries first.

    Why? I dunno. It seems everything tastes better that way.

    Oh and a coke. An ice cold Coca Cola.

    When I'm eating a burger and fries lately, it's from a drive through and I'm driving around for work. As such, i just eat all the fries first since they're easier to grab. Then when i get to a long light or stop and go traffic, ill unwrap the burger and scarf that down.

    Fries along with the burger....unless it's Holstein''s insanely delicious burgers. Theit fries are phenomenal...but the burger is the masterpiece. It's one of the things we look forward to most in Vegas! It's also ruined all other burgers for me :(

    Typically I can manage to scarf down both burger and fries, but there have been rare instances of being too full to finish both, so it's the fries that I leave. If I eat the fries first, then I would be possibly wasting the burger. No.

    Interesting question. Ive never thought about it or seen anyone eat all their fries before eating their burger.

    Alternating bites. Now not a perfect 1-1-1-1 cadence, but alternating.

    One of our carnicerias here puts fries in burritos. Oh my!

    Definitely the first thing I taste are the fries... if they're extremely hot , I do chow down on those first... if just warm, I go right to the burger and alternate. I'm a "nut" for my hot food hot, especially with fries. I've never eaten more than half the fries, before alternating with the burger though.

    Alternate. Fries are a side dish. I usually throw half away.
