    In n' Out Burger. Are these not the greatest burgers made on earth? I know its random, but I went to the beach today and went to an In n' Out burger and pigged out after the beach. Plus they're cheap, a Double Double is only 15 cents more than a Big Mac at McDonalds, and which would you rather have? :D I feel bad for anyone who lives outside the west coast area and who are unable to experiance the best burger ever! Anyone else love these things?

    In'N Out is ok, but I had lunch at the Habit. IMHO the Habit >> In'N Out >> McD/BK/Wendy.

    In-N-Out > [insert food selling place here]. I really do feel sorry for everybody who doesn't have In-N-Out because they don't know what they're missing. It's one of the reasons I'm glad I live in California! :cool:

    In'n'out is alright, but it's not my favorite place. The Habit is good, but I believe it's only in So Cal. I tend to like independant places better though... dunno why. I guess I'm just sick of all the lame chain restaurants around here.

    As a former SBer, I'll second the vote for the Habit. As for In n Out, it's always a double double animal style :)

    The have a couple of locations in the central valley, but otherwise it's SB/Ventura/LA only. At < 20 locations, it's pretty close to independent, comapred to a major national or regional chain. :p

    Best fast food burgers around. Shakes aren't bad either. Only one or two in the area that I know of (good thing it's not super close, I'd want to eat there more).

    Yeah, I didn't mean to call the habit or in'n'out lame chain restaurants, I meant places like Applebees, TGIF, Chili's, etc... The Habit seems local since I've met the wife of one of the brothers multiple times. He's also doing some other restaurant now, but I can't remember which.

    In n' Out is great, I agree. I once knew a guy from Texas who would always make a pilgrimage to In n' Out when he came to California on business because he said they don't have them in Texas. I guess it's a West Coast chain or something.

    When I visit Texas a trip to Whataburger is mandatory.

    Their fries are better than their burgers, especially with that nasty "spread" as they call it.

    In So Cal chains, it's Carl's, Jr., Rallys, and In-n-Out, in that order.

    Rallys has seasoned, double-cooked fries and those are better than In-n-Out's, too.

    Funny as it sounds, but I really like the burgers from Del Taco. Get the Bacon Double Del, and tell them to undercook it. In n' Out is a close second in the fast food category, though.

    You tell people to undercook hamburger meat?!

    You're pretty much asking for some sort of nasty bacteria there.

    Ehh, I have other things to worry about. Hasn't hurt me yet, and if it does, I probably deserve it.

    In n' Out rocks... had it twice in my 3 nights stay in San Jose the last time. And if you ever get to New Zealand, try Burgerfuel (and for pizzas there, try Hell's Pizza).

    And if you're in Tokyo where I am, try Freshness Burger! :)

    My college pals on the west coast have been evangelising to me about In 'n Out. Unfortuantely I live in the Midwest and go to school on the East Coast. :( Over in the Midwest, though, we have Fuddruckers, which makes pretty good (and massive) burgers.

    I <3 In-n-Out burger. Reason why it's only on the westcoast? It's a family-owned chain of restaurants NOT available to franchise, they want to keep it family owned.

    Anyhow, nice fresh ingredients and a simple burger and simpler menu = winner. And if I feel like a burger after a concert, they'll still be open.

    There aren't all that many close to where I am right now, but there have been more opening up in the last few years.

    Baja's not quite as good since they got bought out by Wendy's and expanded very fast nationally. Still better than much of their competition, but something fundamental has changed... Maybe Wendy's will sell them since McD is getting out of Chipotle?
