A Better Burger Joint

In-N-Out, which is a small chain with its origins in Southern California and has near cult status when it comes to fast food burgers.  People either seem to love them or hate them.  They produce a a very distinctive fast food burger that comes off of a flat top (griddle), instead of the usual shredded lettuce and chopped onions the burgers are garnished with fresh whole lettuce leaves, fresh sliced tomato and a fresh sliced disc of onion.   They should not be  compared to char-broiled (grilled) burgers, totally different animal.  I like their Double-Double, double meat and double American cheese; while I take mine with usual onion, tomato and lettuce, I have them hold the “spread” and hold the cheese, to lower the fat, and add mustard and ketchup.  Now that is a very satisfying burger when you have a hankering for that genre of burger.

  1. OMG I love In-N-Out. It’s one of my most go to places when we’re in California or the SouthWest. Beautifully processed.

  2. Their fame has reached the East Coast, even if their burgers have not. Nice treatment of a place with a classic look.

    • The palm trees were essential to this image, Sheila. Crossed palm trees have been a part of the motif of the exterior of In-N-Out restaurants since 1972.
