[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!

    I think food in general is fresher, more diverse and basically just all around better in California versus in the Eastern US. I think Californians demand and appreciate (and expect) higher quality food overall.

    It is an absolute shame they don’t have In-N-Outs here on the east coast. As a former west coaster, you now have me craving one of their cheeseburgers. Mmmmmm. Best fast food burgers ever.

    I wonder how cheap airfare is to California, Arizona, or Nevada ;)

    This is one of the things that makes me regret moving cross-country… because, alas, you’re right. There are no In-and-Out Burgers here on the eastern sea board.:(

    I know what I’m having for lunch! I guess working in Irvine, living in Orange, and having 2 In’N’Outs on my way from home to work isn’t a bad thing ;-)

    Hey, great pictures of a really tasty burger! How long will you be in the US?

    Worst food I’ve had in a LONG time! I’m SO GLAD I cook.
    Great photo though.

    There’s nothing better. In-N-Out is one of the reasons I refuse to move out of California.

    I like to get their cheeseburgers animal style (extra veggies, extra sauce, pickles and grilled onions). Yum!!

    Double-double with grilled onions and pickles…mmm…

    In the midwest, Steak & Shake is a good substitute.

    I am with the person above. LOVE the burgers ANIMAL style. One of the things we miss, moving from AZ. . .
