This Chick-fil-A waffle fry hack changes everything

America loves Chick-fil-A so much that they were voted the No. 1 fast food restaurant for the fourth year in a row last year (via USA Today). We get it. Those fried chicken sandwiches with a pickle are just so hard to beat. The only thing that gets mouths watering even more so is the chain's iconic oversized waffle fries

These hot potatoes first made their debut in 1985 and have become revered for both their taste and their dip-ability. The surface area of each fry provides you with the perfect amount of space to scoop up a proportional amount of dipping sauce. The potatoes Chick-fil-A uses to make their famous fries come from a family-owned business in Washington State that has been growing these totally tubular tubers since 1906. In the 30-plus years that Chick-fil-A fries have graced the company's menu, the recipe has never changed (via Chick-fil-A).

It's no secret that Chick-fil-A fries are the best. The company even calls them their most popular menu item. But while everyone knows how great the "Eat Mor Chickin" restaurant's fries are, some people might know there's a hack to make them even greater. We know, sounds sacrilege. How could these fries be any better?

Order your Chick-fil-A fries well done

Chick-fil-A waffle fries are actually pretty simple when it comes to ingredients. There's the criss cross fry, some canola oil, and salt (and a few other ingredients, according to Chick-fil-A). So, what else could they possibly do to make these fries tastier? The hack to make Chick-fil-A fries better: order them twice fried. Wait. What? 

According to a Spoon University post penned by a former Chick-fil-A employee, you can actually order your fries "well done" and they will double fry them. The former employee said, "The waffle shape of the fries is perfect for this because the outside gets extra crispy and the inside stays soft and super potato-y." But this hack doesn't just make these fries extra crispy, it ensures you are getting super fresh fries because they are made to order. She also shared that while she had never done it herself, you can also order your Chick-fil-A fries to be triple fried. Not certain we are daring enough to go there either — but maybe.

That said, according to a Chick-fil-A tweet on February 28, 2020, the company said well-done fries might not be available at every store. If you really want to try this hack, you might want to call your local Chick-fil-A in advance to manage your mouth's expectations.
