Quoted from vicjw66:

I won’t give them that. I like crisp fries. 5 guys fries are mushy and have some funky flavor to them. I just want salt on my fries not some weird flavored salt like they it on theirs. The few times I’ve eaten 5 guys I always felt bleh afterwards and for the next few hours.

It's just too much burger. I feel like shi* after eating at 5 Guys and I haven't ate there in years. Yeah, I could get the kid's burger, but I'm just not going to do that. The tastiest burger I've had in a long time? BurgerFi. Most consistently good burger? In-N-Out.

No shit, BurgerFi is awesome. It looks like a greasy ass burger, but damn it's good.

Just get the regular fries, not the Cajun.

Between the peanuts, the burger, and the shake, I don't even order fries anymore. As good as they are.

I look forward to a Hardee's monster burger, on our journey to Myrtle Beach every year.

I drove to Culver's today to grab a cheeseburger and they had no power.

It was bland?

#358 30 days ago

Are we talking best burgers or best overall menu? I say Five Guys for best burgers, but Wendy's cause of them tasty spicy nuggs.

Yes, they opened a Culver’s down from them and business is booming there. Cheaper and better tasting.

#360 29 days ago

I picked White Castle because I only get the opportunity to have it once a year when I fly to Chicago for work. If we had a White Castle in my area, Five Guys would have been my vote.

Do you ever go to the Allentown show? White Castle isn't too far away.

That's just hard to imagine based on my experience, but I went to a Smashburger many years ago, and totally don't get what all the fuss is about with them. I think you are just going to have variation from one location to another. We have 4 McDonalds in my town. 1 of them is f'n dreadful. The other 2 are just OK. The 4th is pretty darn good for a McDonalds. We mostly hit them up for breakfast. That 4th one has a little old lady running things in the morning. I think she knows how to cook and that makes all the difference.

I tried an Impossible Whopper this week. It tastes and looks just like a regular Whopper. I was surprised. Only 30 calories less than a regular Whopper too (630). I'm not a fan of BK though. Most of ours are pretty run down.

Quoted from jamesmc:

In and Out was founded by the principle of fresh food fast. Local. Friends socialized with the founder for years. And would tell me 20 years ago that he only wanted a localized chain so the supply chain was amazingly consistent. Well that was the 60s, 70s, and 80s. Their now in Texas and other locations 1000 miles from where he intended.

In&Out is just now building a new franchise outlet here in Salem OR (Actually Keizer OR)
Farthest north post from SoCal yet.
3.5 hrs north beyond the only other store in Oregon (Medford).
I think their location rule
is that any store outlet must be within one days (8-10hrs / ~600 miles) drive
(from their central supply warehouses) In-N-Out’s patty-making facilities.
As the chain has expanded, it has opened several distribution centers in addition to its original Baldwin Park location.
The new facilities, located in Lathrop, California; Phoenix, Arizona; Draper, Utah; Dallas, Texas; Colorado Springs, Colorado will provide for potential future expansion into other parts of the country.
i.e. no frozen patties allowed only fresh.

I like Foster's Freeze the best,
but that is largely dependent on local franchise holder, cause QC varies greatly from location to location.
When i lived and worked in Port Hueneme /Oxnard CA the Foster Freeze there had great burgers and seasoned fries.
Also my hometown Gilroy CA, had a Foster Freeze, years before the McDonalds came to town.

Correction : Guess there is another In&Out in Grants Pass OR, so now there will soon be three.

Been there. Pretty good. Used to make runs to Lima as it was home to the closest Waffle House twenty years ago. Then one opened in Bowling Green and eventually several were opened in Toledo so I can be at one in a half-hour.

I believe that Waffle House was the one right off I-75.

Yes, on the West side of I-75.
