In/Out burger

This is under general chat section and has absolutely nothing to do with the FJR, unless one is planning a ride to one. Being an east coaster, and can't get one, all the press I hear and read about the In and Out burger, is it justified? I mean it is a west coast chain, and when you boil things down, a chain's burger is a chain burger. I realize they have a limited menu and they do that menu very well, but, come on, really! Is it only because there are limited locations? I will agree Chic-Filet is some good stuff and will prefer that place if I'm hungry. I also realize Yuengling beer is limited in its distribution here on the east, but, dare I say it, it is a good tasting cheap beer. I drink it all the time as the prices are close to busch and natural, and the flavor is much better than those. But it is no where close to the high end beers and really doesn't deserve all the hype people give it where they can't get it. It is the same Coor's effect when you couldn't get it east of the Mississippi. When We got it, we realized it was all hype.

Long winded, but I wanted to present examples, is In and Out worth the hype?

And what about Whataburger? I've been to neither W-a-B nor In-n-Out but have become a fan of Red Robin burgers. They cook them with a little pink if you prefer so it's nice and juicy. And plenty to choose from on the menu. We have 4 stores within an hr or so but most often I end up in Roanoke, VA. I can meet Ken the HD Guy for lunch then take one of a multitude of mountain routes home.

IMO, In-N-Out is top of that burger chain style and worth a visit. Burger quality seems better, fries are a bit better and awesome shakes.

Around home is the Cook Out chain of burgers fries and shakes. Not a fan of that brand, sorry.
But as I travel for work to MotoAmerica races, I've been able to check out the other similar "brands" over the last 5 years.
Tried most of them ( I think ) from Checkers to Steak & Shake, White Castle, 5 guys, Whataburger etc.
And when I travel west to visit my son in the Air Force, always eat several times at a In-N-Out.
2nd choice is Whataburger but me thinks In-N-Out trumps them all.

Hope that helps.

Yup, it's worth it. Another Garden Stater here, but every time i head out west on business travel I try to see if there's an In-and-Out nearby. Sometimes there are lines just to get in.

when a buddy and I rode to California we made it a point to stop at In and Out Burgers. It's not a gourmet burger like from places that specialize in burgers, but for a chain place it's pretty good. it's like the Dragon, there are much better roads in the area, but when you go near there you just have to stop by and give it a rip.

Thanks gents, I guess I'll have to give it a try. I'm heading out to Seattle next week, but none in that area or state, so it'll be another time then.

BTDT prefer 5 Guys with Whataburger being as good (except for fries) and less expensive. I did Steak-and-Shake several times when part of GWRRA because some of the other members seemed to jones for it. I found the portions small and the prices about double that for Whataburger (which I prefer).

I miss burgers and fries... and shakes. But -60 lbs and -10+ inches later, it's good that I don't partake any more.

Dick's Burgers is great for Seattle folks. We have Five Guys and their quality is good. Fries are tops. But living in LA, In-N-Out had the best old fashioned "American Graffiti" Era burgers, fries and shakes.

When in California I nearly always ate at least once at In-N-Out Burger. Good simple fast service. Got the impressions employees were very happy much the same as Chick-fil-A. Unlike the disposable employees used at the big chains.

I second bounce's preference for 5 Guys.


In 'n Out has opened several in the area, one in northern Denton. I thought it was OK, but nothing to rave about. I sort of think it's like the Coors Effect of the '60s and '70s before they went national and you couldn't get it everywhere. I think Coors is excessively mediocre.
