We all know that French fries aren’t the best thing for you on any restaurant menu.
But how unhealthy are they? Men’s Health magazine recently reported its findings in America’s Worst French Fries report. And, boy, am I devastated by one of the chains that made the list: Five Guys Burgers & Fries.
The fries at Five Guys are oh-so-good. But, alas, the fresh-cut potatoes, fried in peanut oil, were named the Worst Regular Order of Fries.
The nutritional breakdown of a large order: 1,464 calories, 71 g fat (14 g saturated) and 213 mg sodium.
Five Guys is set to open its first Orange County unit in Orange later this year. I asked local franchisee Phil Ratner, who operates two other Five Guys in Cerritos and Carson, what he thought about the ‘worst’ ranking.
