Does anyone feel very strongly in either direction about In-n-out burger? I think its good but I don't think its amazing. It is good don't get me wrong but I don't understand it when people say its the best and its great etc etc. That said...I feel like a double double animal style right now..........................

I do. It's one of the better things in life! I used to go to high school a minute away from one, so every other day me and my friends would go have a double double and a Coke under the sun. Ahh...I miss it.

Its no super burger to end all burgers or whatever (that would be the "wilbur" with 'shrooms). But at least the only time I had it (fisherman's Wharf area of SFO), it was for the price, far and away the best burger and shake I'd had.

I love In-n-out stuff.
So far all of you have focused on their food.
In addition to it, what I like is how the employees treat you there. Unlike minimum wage workers in Mac and BKs, here you have polite young kids who are glad to be working there. And best part is they can speak and understand English.

I think it's one of the greatest things to happen to fast food.
For one thing, the way they prepare the food is not found in any other chain fast food place. The burgers are hella greasy and the fries are salty, just the way god intended it. It's also relatively cheap, around $5 for a double-double with fries and a drink.
on another note, the in and out company is a very good employer. they pay their workers great wages ($10 per hour in some areas of california that i know of) and although the place seems really rushed, it looks like a good environment in which to work (much better, it seems, than my experiences at jack in the box.)
In and out needs to come to texas! why should Californians, Arizonians, and people from Nevada enjoy the great hamburgers while the rest of the nation suffers from a lack of good fast food!

My guess is that they've stuck to the west coast to avoid overexpansion into markets which they don't know could make them a profit. Part of it is probably that the weather is so great in the areas that In and Out is open, so they have a year round flow of customers, especially return customers.
Because they have stayed so relatively small, they can afford to pay their employees so well and keep the high quality standards that they have. I hope it stays that way.

In-n-Out has damn good burgers and an amazing vanilla shake, no doubt about it. Especially animal style double-doubles - mmmm so good, I could go for one right now. I could eat In-n-Out maybe, max, 1 or 2 times a week - after that it gets really boring. In-n-Out burgers / shakes are great, but have them only once in a while!

As I live in the East, I've never heard of In N Out.
However, my vote goes to Fuddruckers hamburger chain.
You order them either 1/2 pound or 1/3 pound. They cook it to order. Some of them have the butcher shop right there, and in view. They give you a number and you sit and wait 8 minutes for your food to be 'cooked'. The fries are wedge potatoes.
They give you the burger, on a bun, and the fries. They have a huge toppings bar where you add your own toppings to your desire and taste. Along side the ketchup and mustard well dispensers, they have nacho cheese and jalapeno cheese dispensers.
They have an ice cream/shake bar as well. And several video games.
I don't know what all states they are in, but I've ate at them in Michigan and here in Florida.

From the state of Arizonia?
ARIZONANS have been enjoying In-N-Out locally for a few years now - and the place is almost always a mob scene. Great food for a chain-style restaurant, but I'd have to give the "Best Burger" nod to Fuddruckers as well.
