It's no secret that McDonald's fries aren't always made to order, and there's a chance you could be eating fries that have been sitting out for a while before they get to you. A secret you might not know, though, is that there's a way to get fresh fries every. Single. Time.
All you have to do is ask for fries without salt. That's it.
You could also request a fresh batch and you're likely to have good luck there, too. This same trick works for a Filet-O-Fish ordered without the cheese."
