: In-N-Out Burger...Is it that good?
2011-05-12, 10:50 PM
Having tried the ones in Fresno, Visalia and I believe one in Bakersfield, CA I'd have to say YEAH.
There's a reason this place has achieved cult status. Put this on your bucket list, you won't be disappointed.
An INO opened in Allen, TX. Someone posted a vid showing the line for it At least 100 cars if not more (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jQowy9DdY8k).
Soo, any better burger places?

So in that video, I counted 70 cars on the street. I don't remember a line like that when they first opened in Fresno.

You do know this is a Canadian site, so there might not be any response here regarding if it is good or not..

You might be right. On Stalk, they talk about Jack and Sonic. Just wanted to see what would happen with the same topic here, thought it would be less controversial.
One post on the YT vid: in-n-out, come to CANADA! So if I ever go to BC again, are there any good burgers?
While In-n-Out does have a better burger, you gotta check out the fries at Five Guys. OMG - I'm not sure if it's the peanut oil or what, but I make a special odyssey every time I'm in the Lower Mainland to hunt down the Five Guys (Park Royal or South Surrey).

There is a Five Guys here. The fries were great. I'll try them again next time. I believe they have hot dogs too. I suppose 5G is a good substitute if you don't have INO nearby.
If you go to Vegas, they have INO there.

Anytime we travel in the southwestern US my wife makes me stop at INO... think they are in California, Arizona, Nevada (and I guess TX) now.
I think the burgers are quite good, but I don't know if they are the best ever :-)

When I was in San Diego for a few days, I was advised to try them... I went every day :P SO GOOD....

IN-n-Out = Best fast food burger ever.
5 Guys is running a very close second. A very messy burger but very good.

OK... I'll bite! How about Licks in Toronto.

I tried In-N-Out in Vegas the last time I was there and found the burger good but not the best. It's their fries I found quite unique and very good. I didn't try a shake but they looked very good too. While there I also tried Jack in the Box which I didn't like, and Carl's Jr. which I found to be by far the best of the three. (I actually had three meals there :D)
If you love In-N-Out's burgers and you're ever in the Quebec area try Chez Ashton.
They copied the In-N-Out burger exactly with their Double Ashton. They're good but having eaten many of those over the years before going to Vegas explains why I wasn't really impressed with In-N-Out.
Lastly, again in Quebec, some really good high-end burgers can be found at Chez Victor.
They have beef, pork, and veggie burgers that are all outstanding.
How about the Heart Attack Grill (http://www.heartattackgrill.com/)?
Going to the cottage, I always love a Paul Webers burger.

If you are ever in Brantford, you must try San Frano's.
Little Mom & Pop burger joint.
Been around forever because they make a truly great burg.

In Thunder Bay. Prospector Burger Barn and the Coney Island are the best burger places.

In-n-Out burger isn't just really good, it's also very affordable. Four burgers, four fries and four drinks/shakes for around $20.
Usually our first stop when we get to our house in Phoenix (before grocery shopping). My wife, my kids and I all love it. Clean restaurants and friendly staff as well. Wish we had them here...

In-n-Out is awesome, but with any chain some locations are better than others. I've been to several in residential California (mainly LA region) and they rocked, however I went to the one near Fishermans Wharf in San Fran and it was not as good.
Five Guys is good but not as good as In-n-Out

In-N-Out is very good. stop making me wish i was in cali!!

Thanks, I was just starting to forget about In-and-Out. Spent six weeks last fall in LA. Ate there 3-4 times a week the whole time. Sounds pathetic but really loved the burgers, the clean restaurants and the inexpensive prices. I tried a couple of locations but usually ate at the Sunset location in Hollywood. At lunchtime it was packed, mostly with trades people getting a good meal at a cheap price.
While there I was also looking forward to going back to Carl's Jr. and Jack in the Box. Carl's was as awesome as ever, but I found Jack's quality had really gone down the tubes.

At In-N-Out you must get the burgers Animal Style.
