There's a new place here in Amory that is the equal of any 5 Guys or In-n-Out burger I've ever had. I only let myself go there once a week, but when I'm there I'm always "please please please do some marketing or whatever it takes to not go out of business."

William (C), Wednesday, 21 December 2011 18:34 (seven years ago) Permalink

i have eaten at both and pick in-n-out. mostly because i think shake shack is over-rated and in-n-out takes itself less seriously.

oops, sorry. that should have been in the thread for meaningless aphorisms.

l,

that is kind of a good point.
shake shack has a whole Serious Fast Food Restaurant vibe going on
in and out is just there
on the other hand shake shack has good frozen custard
in and out has acceptable milkshakes
love-love

Nothing as good as In-N-Out here in east coast US unfortunately, but I live a 2-minute walk to Five Guys (free peanuts!) and also Checkers which is walk-up or drive-thru only, rare around here. BGR: The Burger Joint is also quite good.

Yeah, it's pretty good. I like it. It's like... i want to say that none of these newfangled chains are a helluvalot better than Wendy's, if you imagine Wendy's as a new thing with a slightly different burger flavor.

Reading your first post I was about to ask you where I'd find one so ty!

I wouldn't go out of your way for one, but it's a good eat if you're nearby one. A huge choice of toppings, prices competitive with the fast-food giants (despite their name, the "little" burgers are about the size of a McD's 1/4 Pounder). The fries are too greasy for my tastes although everyone else seems to like them.

Everything else is secondary, Wednesday, 21 December 2011 19:06 (seven years ago) Permalink

5 guys is ok but makes heavier grosser burgers than either in n out or shake shack.

cad, Wednesday, 21 December 2011 19:08 (seven years ago) Permalink

tbh I'm mostly interested in the fry aspect since I don't eat meat. I-n-O lets you order the burgers with everything but which makes them pretty awesome imo but it's also delicious even with just that.

I really dig fast food burgers. This isn't meant to be a a challopsy opinion, but In the pantheon of burgers I feel there are no totally distinct outstanding winners. There are maybe three circles of fast food burgers: acceptable, good, and very good.

Fatburger, Shake Shack, White Castle, Five Guys, Wendys, are all in my top tier but I wouldn't go to the mat for either of them.

thompp, Wednesday, 21 December 2011 19:14 (seven years ago) Permalink

I don't give a shit about whether or not they use the same grill tbh. I know enough about restaurant food to know that most things you think are "veg" have probably been "tainted" in some way. I would welcome a veggie patty grilled right along side all the meat ones but you're right that most don't. Burger King does but not all locations offer it. It's actually pretty good too.

Yeah, I think that was my verdict a while back - In 'n Out has the better burger, and Five Guys has better fries. But that peanut oil on the latter can be a little much, and you can really taste the potato if you order your In 'n Out fries "light."

btw in n out's popularity out in socal is so insane now. when I was growing up people knew about it but it wasn't a destination thing. their efficiency is pretty fuckin scary, I went on saturday night and the car line was almost out to the street but it just zipped right along and the chow was still A+

If memory serves the big INO in Las Vegas is 24 hours, but none in LA.

Best INO burger ever is the one next to LAX after a long flight.

q: what is a good (fast food) burger? to me it is good beefy taste with enough fat and not too compressed, and a toasted roll w/ decent not mealy tomatoes for a side.

idk chick-fil-a in hollywood was pretty damned crowded when i went a few months ago. i think curious natives plus homesick transplants would mean a pretty brisk business at least at first

you can only really be homesick for shake shack if you moved to la pretty recently! but yeah I don't think it would go out of business or anything, but it wouldn't be ****an event**** in the same way.

best bet for the aforementioned LAX in-n-out location is to take some time to hang outside and watch the plans fly in about 100 ft overhead. the burgers at in-n-out are great (also: pie and burger in pasadena has virtually the same burger and might be a little better, but it's not fast food, really) i used to like fatburger but i lost the taste for it. the umami burger fellas are in the process of trying to do a counter service type of chain for their brand, which will be interesting to see (though umami is also overrated, moreso than in-n-out.)

just spent the week in Cali and i would like to restate my unpopular position that no matter how good In-N-Out's burgers and shakes are they get the gasface for those shitty french fries

they're better if you order them "well done."
