[USA (West Coast)] In-N-Out Burger

In-N-Out Burger
I can haz double-double cheezburger?

One of the most satisfying eats I found in San Francisco was a humble, inexpensive burger served at In-N-Out Burger, a fast food joint. This fast food chain is found mainly on the western part of US.

[One distinct difference I discovered from travelling from the west coast to east coast is the availability of its popular fast-food joints. For example, while I practically see a McDonald’s outlet at almost every turn in the eastern part, McDonald’s outlets are rarer sightings in the western cities I visited (L.A and SF). And like I said earlier, there isn’t any In-N-Out burger outlets in the east coast (correct me if I’m wrong).]

(I love the idea of the ‘In-N-Out’ logo at the entrance … clever!)

What I like most about this fast food outlet was that you could tell that the ingredients used (from the hand-leafed lettuce to the freshly baked buns to the preservative-free patties) were pretty fresh. And talking about freshness – you could even see the entire process of French Fries-making at the outlet. Behind the cashier, you could see the crew peeling the potatoes, cutting them to fries, soaking the uncooked fries in water for a while and finally deep frying them, draining the oil, etc.

We are on tight spending budget in US, where dining out is so expensive, so hurray for delicious and affordable fast food!

    Oh man I am so jealous…and hungry…right now. They aren’t even available on all of the West coast. Last time I checked this fabulous awesomeness came only in shades of California and Nevada. *whine* We have Dick’s :mrgreen: in Seattle, but it doesn’t even come close. Oh, and definitely, try everything Animal style- so good!

    In N out beats any other fast food burger… Period. Its the best, and Im glad there everywhere in AZ now. Culver’s (Midwest Chain) Is the Second best, Then Steak N Shake. I love them all though

    Nice post. Some of my favorite burgers in LA reside at The Nook, Ford’s Filling Station and Father’s Office.

    tigerfish:: Opps … sorry, hehe

    sarah:: Thanks for visiting! Argh… I really need to check out this animal style dressing if I get to visit california again!!

    Alex:: Glad I manage to try your fave! :lol: :up:

    Josh:: Hope I get to try out these burgers some day :-)

    I LOVE In & Out Burgers.. A Locals Tip::: Order your Burger OR/and Fries “Animal Style” and also Grab a Neopolitan Shake while your at it…

    I know its not on their menu, but every employee knows the lingo (and there is special buttons on the screen/receipt).

    TOP QUALITY FAST FOOD. above all and a great price. Nothing is ever FROZEN.

    I <3 Neopolitan Shakes & Animal Style Fries!!!
