This was a tough battle because who doesn’t love a burger and fries and chicken and waffles? If we could, we’d eat both meals in the same day! But looking over the qualities of each, it’s clear that a burger and fries deliver satisfaction more reliably and at a more affordable price than chicken and waffles. If you’re a practical person, or someone who needs to change it up frequently (without changing it up too much), a burger and fries are your best bet; save the chicken and waffles for special occasions.
