    I think the real question is: What do you dip your fries in? I only use ketchup as a last resort and even then only when the fries are cooked a certain way. I almost always prefer honey mustard or no dipping sauce at all. My sister dips her fries in mayo. *shudder*

    Malt vinegar if available. Ranch dressing if at a local burger joint that gives it out. Otherwise, plain.

    There isn't a no ketchup option?

    I'm not a huge fan of fries, but I always have them plain when I do. Ketchup has very little place in my world.

    I'm a big ketchup fan. Ketchup here is a little sweeter than US ketchup and it's just delicious. I put it on fries, chips, tuna rice, sandwiches, etc. Yum yum!! I guess only my freak of an esposo puts ketchup on top of fries!

    My favorite condiment by far is Sriracha mixed with natilla. Natilla is similar to sour cream, but thinner and it is sooooo good. I could eat Sriracha-natilla with a spoon! :woot:

    I don't really like ketchup on my fries. I will eat it. I really like tarter sauce on my fries. Oh and I also eat Wendy's frosty on my fries. That is when there is a Wendy's.

    I'm a ketchup girl, but I definitely want mine on the side. I also prefer warm ketchup over cold just like JustMe.

    I like them plain. Or in BBQ sauce. I will use ketchup if they are too salty or if I don't like the type of fries. (Generic restaurant fries- thicker, plain cut, bland)
    I will put it on top if I need ketchup (reasons above) at a sporting event where dipping will be difficult. Other than that, I don't want to be messy nor do I want my fries to get soggy.

    I use honey mustard because I have a severe tomato allergy. I have it on the side and dip my fries.

    On the side if I had to have ketchup. I like to dip them in honey mustard dressing if available. There was a diner we went to in college and they always gave us big bowls of the stuff for dipping. We were repeat customers so we didn't get the tiny dipping bowls LOL

    I will only use ketchup as a last resort if the fries aren't very tasty on their own. I love dipping fries in ranch even though that makes them so much more unhealthy. BBQ sauce is good too.

    Cheese, bacon, and ranch fries sound better to me (and more like a heart attack, but....).

    I am the world's pickiest person with my condiments. I literally will refuse to eat somewhere if they are out of ketchup, bbq sauce, etc.

    I prefer my ketchup cold, but will eat it at room temp. Always on the side, never on top.

    For those of you who have "Texas Steakhouse" like we do here, they have these things call campfire fries with bacon and cheese and you can dip in jalapeno ranch---LOVE IT! In fact, I would never dip any loaded fries in ketchup ever, only ranch.

    Lots of ketchup on the side. On the top makes em too messy to pick up and the ketchup isn't evenly distributed which is of great importance.

    I bought ketchup at Sam's, so we've had too much so I can't get any Whataburger ketchup yet. I hope it's still in stores by the time we run out!

    Room temp ketchup on the side, with extra salt mixed in with the ketchup. I prefer ranch, though. At Chick-Fil-A I use their house sauce. It's very similar to honey mustard.

    I put the ketchup on the side, unless there's no room, then I put it on the fries.

    I am so glad I no longer have to hoard the tiny containers of Whataburger ketchup. I am pretty sure there must be crack in that stuff! Ketchup is always on the side though, if not your fries get soggy and that is just gross.

    If I have it, it's usually on the side. But I don't usually eat fries with ketchup. Really, I'll only ever do that if the fries suck.

    That's why I get it on the side it seems whenever I get fries someone wants to share them with me and they may not like ketchup.

    Only malt vinegar belongs on fries. Unless they are disco fries.

    If fries are hot, generally that means they're fresh and I don't need the ketch up to cover up that weird taste they get when they're cold. If I just loved ketch up on hot fries, I'd eat it cold because I like the contrast. Plus sometimes hot fries burn your mouth, so cold ketch up helps offset that.

    I don't eat many fries, but one of our local restaurants makes their own ketchup, and I always get fries there and ask for extra ketchup.

    Oooo yum! Ranch dressing is also delicious. Not a fan of mayo on fries, but love it on my burgers.
