Eh. I've had in-n-out. I've had 5 guys (they, at least are in Seattle). They're fast food burgers. I have 2 local places near me that kick both their asses and don't even compare them to some place like Red Mill. I can't get excited about mediocre burgers just because they're cheap.

Ground breaking here in Santa Rosa began in mid-July and the restaurant is about a week from opening. I have never in my life seen a commercial project go up so fast in Santa Rosa. In-N-Out must have a building inspector on retainer because nothing moves this fast in this town. Just amazing what money can buy.
Here in San Clemente we couldn't get an In-n-Out approved when a Carrow's announced it wanted to close and the space was available. The city was concerned about traffic problems because the spot is right next to freeway on/off ramps and is already somewhat congested with a High School within 1/4 mile and a McD's next door. Even after In-n-Out had opposing traffic studies done and offered to pay for a new signal and turn lanes, it still didn't pass. Nearest In-n-Out is about 10 miles North, for which my waistline is grateful.

+1 to a Double-Double Animal Style, but with well-done fries. Can't do the Animal Fries......... too much for me.

The Santa Rosa store was in planning for a year. All the local greenies were calling for a ban on drive thrus and wanted the In-N-Out the scrub the drive thru because of all the exhaust emissions that come from the idling cars waiting in line. That's like a JITB without the clown. There was more greenhouse gas coming from the planning commission meetings than there will ever be from the drive thru.

Location? This one is being built a block from Santa Rosa Jr College in a intersection that already gets clogged at commute and lunch times every day. Traffic will be unbearable but they put it in anyhow. Best thing it will do is relieve the congestion at the store in the next town south when all the dorks line up for the same damn burger in a much longer line in SR because the location is new. Ya gotta love it.

This is what some people just don't get. It MUST be like this, or it is just another burger, IMO. I go in there and hear people ordering a regular old single hamburger, and I just shake my head.

Well of course, MORE than a double double is fine. Less is just unacceptable.

Just don't get it. The In-N-Out burger has never appealed to me. It could be that they won't put bacon on it, but as far as fast food burgers go, I rate it behind Carls Jr. and Burger King, though above the Soylent Green burger at Wendy's.

Same here. No bacon = WTF?!?

From what I've tasted in burger chains all over the US, I'd say they are all between bad and very bad, with McD being on its own yuck scale. My choice would be Five Guys, Carls Jr and Sonic (nothing special but at least not pretending to be something special).

Culinary enlightenment from the Mac Daddy -> Image neener

I think the beauty of In-N-Out is its' simplicity. Hamburger, Cheeseburger, Fries, Shakes and Sodas. No bacon, no jalapenos, no onion rings, no chili, no guacamole, no pickles, no mushrooms, no angus, no chicken, no fish, no kids meals, no clowns, no nuggets, no tacos, no wraps, no flat bread, no ranch dressing, etc... fresh made, made to order, no frills fast food served by pleasant, smiling, clear speaking (english speaking) employees in a clean environment.

The stuff that passes for bacon on most fast food burgers is worthless anyhow. I would rather have it without than with the crap that is offered by the major chains.

Don't forget we are talking fast food chains and not the local super burger joint. Comparisons are null and void [smileyvault-ban.gif]

I think that's my point and others' - it's fast food. People talk about it as if it's something special, but it's just a decent fast food burger. Of course, those Texans won't notice the difference...

Wrong. I realize it for what it is...a cheap but reliable fast food burger. Nothing more, nothing less. If I want better I'll fire up the grill. Pretty easy to beat anything fast food that way.

I noticed on my way home from the airport the other day that they've finally broken ground on the new In-N-Out next to the Arlington Parks Mall.

Good news indeed.

I pounded a Double-Double and some well done fries this past Monday on my way up to see Juan Mercado at Realm. Nothing quite like driving up HWY 29 with a greasy burger in your hands.

Hope you had a lot of liquid to force those well done fries down. Driest damn things I have ever tasted.

I never get tired of this. :)

There's really not much getting around the fact that any ground beef patty cooked beyond medium is an absolute bad.
So we're not talking about burgers, we're talking about fast food sandwiches that happen to have a little bit of over cooked burger-like stuff on em.

And if we were to darken ebob's doorstep and look at my in n out rants of the past, I'd be a naysayer. But I've come around.
I temporarily embraced 5 guys but have soured on that too -- the less overcooked cardboard on these things the better. And therefore, even though I've become really fond of in n out, I'm not really in the double double camp. And certainly not animal style. That, I just don't get.
But a single? It's like the chick fil a. It's a sandwich -- a composition. It's a dreadful piece of meat at in n out as elsewhere. I can even see the BK backers' point. At least a BK burger has a little grilled taste even if they're painting it on somehow.
But an in n out is a fresh and tasty sandwich in a great burger building with amazingly cheerful energetic employees for three bucks. The fries are awful, but they're no worse than elsewhere. If you get them crispy, you've got a shot at a few tasty ones. A BK fry is inedible.
I've come to LOVE this place. Hence the desire for item 30. The neon sign.
I'm gonna go order a 2x1 medium rare and see what comes out. Never occurred to me to ask for it less cooked as it's 3mm thick.

Correction. I think the one on Stacy and Central in Allen is open. I don't think the one at Central @ Northwest is quite open yet. The one by my place in Arlington is getting really close as well.

Ultimately that one on 121 and Preston should be quick for you to get to.

You had me excited there for a moment, but soon enough.... I'm very close to the NW Hwy location.

I was by the Arlington location this morning and it was still all construction dirt. I don't know how long it takes to put up, but I would imagine it's still a couple of months away.

Considering they want to do all their meat processing locally, have they opened those "back office" operations with only 1 functioning restaurant? Or, are they importing the meat from California for now until they get a critical mass?

I don't know for certain but I thought their rented warehouse space for the processing facility was supposed to be done first before they even moved dirt for the locations.

Yeah, read somewhere online that tomorrow is the "official" day that In-N-Out enters the "Dallas" market.

Looks like their pushing dirt in Arlington.

I flew up to Dallas this morning and had "breakfast" there. At 9:00, there was already a line so they let the people that camped out into the restaurant so the news crews could get some shots. They then opened up the doors and the line started moving. I got my food by 10:00 (4x4) and then went and saw my nieces at thier school, with the gift of a few cheeseburgers, of course. I was a little worried that I was "that guy" 'for flying somewhere just for a fast food burger but at least I wasn't the girl in the front if the line who started crying when she got her tray.

The new t-shirts have the In n Out logo on the front with the word Texas under it. The back has the Lone Star flag along with an In and Out Texas scene.

Why? That stuff is sooooo overrated. I keep going there when in cali and always leave disappointed even compared to Fuddruckers here. Now you can slap me for keep going back - but I keep thinking I will see the light and all i get is grass fed tasteless burgers. Give me some fat and grease and taste in my burger please!!

I'll wait until all of the hoopla settles down before I grab one. I'm good. I had one back in December. [snort.gif]

fixed.

Asking them to cook their fries more is like saying "I keep sawing this board and it's still too short."

So, taking the cooking duration out of the equation, your problem is freshly-cut potatoes, cooked in high-quality oil? Yeah, you don't deserve any fries anyway. Next.

I like the fries when they are fresh. Prefer them well done. I think people are just not used to the taste of potatoes in their fries. [tease.gif]

It's not easy being drunk all the time. Everyone would be doing it if it were easy.

You Texans ... this stuff is from L.A. It is exceptional (for Socal) but it is still L.A.

I couldn't look myself in the mirror if I didn't mention this.
Cheers,

No worries Mike. We don't carry guns in our cars as a matter of course as they do in Tejas.

That has been my experience to date. NEVER, EVER buy their fries and then drive off. They are best consumed right there on the spot while they're still hot. The lose a lot the longer you wait. My two cents worth.
