I've been to In & out one time, and it was horrible. I've had so many people rave about it, last time my wife and I were in San Fran we stopped by one. It was crowded, dirty, the people behind the counter were angry/rude. We got our food (order was wrong but whatever) no place to sit so we just kinda stood on the side and made do. 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.
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. 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.
