The burgers were bland and dry, fries were horrible. We just kinda looked at each other and were like whats the big deal about this place? Dumped the remainder of food and left. :Dunno:

Now in saying this I realize this was probably an aberration I hope?? You can't really judge by one visit. Maybe this place was the worst out of all the franchises? Caught them on a bad day? Who knows.

As of right now, I'll take a Deluxe or Special, fries and a shake over anything at In & Out. :D Now even if In & Out was all that people say, doubt it would hurts Dick's too much, it's a nostalgia thing here in Seattle. Even if its not the best burger in the world, sometimes you want the burger you had when you were a kid with your dad after a baseball game, or the burger you remember with your drunk college buddies at 1am.


Agree completely. I've been to In And Out quite a few times. Its good, but I dont think its anything special. Nothing better about it then Carls Jr, Wendys or some of the other fast food burger joints.

If any of you are ever down in the Portland area and want to try a GREAT burger, there's a new place called Killer Burger (i think there's 3 or 4 of them), that makes the best burger i've had.

There were a couple burger ranch in Yakima, I loved that place!


In & Out going in in Bellevue. If they expand bye bye Dicks. Not even close.


Where did you hear that? Please don't joke around about something like that. In spite of the hate in this thread, In-n-Out is awesome sauce.

I agree about Dick's. I don't understand the fascination with that place.

In 'n Out is overrated. Not bad at all, but definitely overrated by many.

A cowo rker asked me if I thought they would ever make it up here. I asked how far north into Oregon were they. Another coworker googled to see and there it was.

I lived in Seattle for 31 years and I don't understand the love for Dicks hamburgers. Not even 1/4th as good as In -n- Out.

And Carls jr. can be ok if you find a store that gives a rip about the quality but they are few and far between. I know of about 3 that are always pretty good. The rest are horrid.

If you rate it for what it is, a drive thru burger its very good. Is it restaurant sit down caliber? Not IMO. It is far superior to Dicks by a mile and any other fast food burger joint I've been to.

Dicks is cheap, simple, tasty and has been around for decades. It obviously isn't gourmet but I stop by on most of my trips to Seattle. Hard to compare it to a place like In n Out when they aren't trying to be the same thing.

Yes. Because anybody who has a different opinion or different tastes must be an idiot.

No. Comparing Carls Jr. and In & Out makes it so.

Agree to a certain degree. They are not the same but what is In & Out trying to be other than a drive thru burger joint the same as Dicks. Spokane Dicks is better than Seattle Dicks.

Yep and as a UW fan I agree of late. Another is duck fan mods on a Seattle Seahawks board! ;)
On a serious note Beth's cafe is extremely overrated its a greasy spoon dive that by some miracle hasn't been shut down by the health department yet!

Closest In & Out is REDDING, CA according to their website.

Some people thought they were moving to Bellevue, because of this article:

But check out the date..... sorry Sailor.

How have I not heard about this? There's one a few miles from my house in Sellwood!

By the way, in case I haven't already said it, I've never been impressed by In 'n Out.
