No more sad McDonald’s fries

In the video, Grace explains an age old secret to getting freshly made fries with your order:

“If you go to McDonald’s and ask for ‘no salt’ on your fries just to get them fresh and then ask for a handful of salt, you are the worst kind of customer.

Just ask us to make them fresh.”

It really is that simple!

Just ask for no salt on your fries, and then the pre-salted fries that have been sitting there won’t become part of your order.

It seems to be an old trick, but definitely one worth trying on your next visit!
