Why did the entire world tell me this was good when it isn't?

Why did the entire world tell me this was good when it isn't?

While I was in Los Angeles I went to 3 separate locations on 3 different days and it was ass every time.

The only explanation for its acclaim is 1) all the media people are in California and they want to promote something that's their as being the best thing, and 2) they didn't choose Jack in the Box because it doesn't feel old timey enough. People hesitate to declare that a new thing (or new-seeming thing) is the best because it makes them look like a noob. But Jack in the Box should've been the representative of CA hamburgers if that's what they wanted. It still wouldn't be the best chain but it would be closer.

Yes, I got it animal style, non-animal style, every possible thing, and it was garbage. The only chain I can think of that's worse is White Castle. Maybe Whataburger too, although I've only been there once, but that was really bad and overrated too. Shake Shack and Five Guys are co-champions

    Honestly just good if you need your food literally fast. They kick out orders faster than anyone else. Their fries suck, even well done and animal style, burgers although never frozen are usually over cooked. I don't drink shakes or care about anything else on the menu
    >Maybe Whataburger too, although I've only been there once, but that was really bad and overrated too.
    You should go back and try another, Whataburger and Sonic are the only two places I'll buy a fast food burger from, but like everything else, it's hit or miss today.

    Breh the US covid vax restriction was lifted so I flew back home to Canada through Miami / DFW (from South America) to do the great american burgah tour..

    some anon on Culinaly was spitting facts. he said whataburger was like a slightly better, giant mcdonald's burger. I concur.

    In n Out - I think was revered for its prices. I don't think it holds true anymore. I had animal style fries well done and there was nothing special. The thousand island dressing was exactly what I could get at the grocery store. It was a nice meal - I enjoyed it - but I don't see the hype behind it either.

    Chick-fil-A now that was the highlight. I had it in Texas and Florida. I liked the... chicken and the lemonade but the portions were shrinkflated. My mom had it when she drove to Washington state and said the portions were small. Unfortunately, we missed the bigger portions.

    All in all, I'm still very much a Wendy's guy.

      It's still good value for the price, I had it a few weeks ago and compared the prices online it to McD and Jack in the Box and the Doubledouble combo is actually cheaper than most of the other chains' combos now.

      Wendy's is also good quality for the price.

      When I lived in California, all of my moronic friends and family from out of state would insist on eating at in-n-out and rant about how good it is. Also, pretty much all of the in-n-outs I've been to from long beach to medford have had lines out the door and around the corner at lunch time every day of the week. It's insane how much people seem to like it when it's not even better than mcdonalds.

    In-N-Out is better than mickey d's and five guys, but it gets mogged hard by other regional chains including Jack. In the Inland Empire and LA County there's Tom's/Tam's and Farmer Boys with better burgers among all the mom n' pop places.

    And that's just California. It's probably the same in other states where they operate.

    In N Out is a great value and fresh n yummy. While I think you're moronic, it does benefit massively from eating asap. Does not travel well. Fries always blow but are acceptable if fresh n flaming hot. I also think the hype has a lot to do with the fact that a large percentage of people consume it on vacations, when they're happy, with their families, stimulated by new sights and sounds, etc. Be it in California or Vegas or a trip to The Grand Canyon, or w.e. In N Out never tastes as good as when had in California, tired, sea salt crusted, eyes stinging, from a nice day flopping around at the beach. Try it that way if you're not allergic to water, sun, and doing the fitness. I imagine anything tastes good after that, but In N Out & hotdog on a stick corn dog made by a 14 year old woman tastes especially tasty.

    Also, ask for a hat & the sticker puzzles.

    A big reason is that they use fresh ingredients and their restaurants are always clean as hell.

      I've had in n out in three or four states and plenty of locations and the quality never really dips. Service, food, its always top notch. The clientele and wait times are the only variant I've ever experienced. You either stand around with a bunch of fat dumb whites, blacks, browns, or tourists. Late night has lots of cute chicks to oogle after concerts and bars let out.

    Cost - Will definitely get replies about this talking about how they raised prices recently and they did but still definitely the best priced burger joint that people gas up. I've honestly never had Five Guys besides on a work trip when it was expensed because paying thirty bucks for a burger and fries is ridiculous.

    Cleanliness - Dining room area and bathrooms are always kept very clean when compared to competitors. Whenever I'm on a road trip to Utah or Vegas I'll always stop at an In N Out cause I know I can use the shitter without seeing shit n piss on the floor.

    Consistency - Everything is fresh and made to order. You're not going to get some funky ass burger that's been sitting under a heat lamp for hours. You're also likely not going to have them frick up your order like every other huge franchise and even if they do frick it up they'll remake it correctly no questions asked and wont give you any push back or do any frickery with how much you paid/refund/etc.

    T. former almost full time In N Out employee who now just works one day a week cause my managers sick and I just get to cook all day and don't have to interact with customers. Also, if you eat the fries right away they're really quite good.

      >In N Out employee
      So you're biased, but let me say you're right.

      I lived in Phoenix my whole life till recent and my family never ate there so I only had it later in life after seeing the whole internet was sucking dick over it. Honestly, it's just really fricking fine, and cheap, especially industry post-covid pricing. Everything is truly crisp, clean, and consistent. You can customize what you want. Service is slow as shit, yes. No, it's not the greatest thing ever, and I get the criticism of the fries (check if they're presalted or not, and again, customize light well or well done), but if you live near a location no shit is it worth getting on a semi-regular basis over other chains.

      Jack in the Box? Okay priced, okay taste, but it's regrettable slop like Taco Bell (and White Castle) for when you're intoxicated. Five Guys? Expensive as shit, tastes good but not that good, and is the literal sloppiest shit ever. Shake Shack, Steak n Shake, even Wendy's now are similar: an okay option but not worth more than a rare occasion. Sonic is good for the wider menu. Family didn't eat at Whataburger either so I haven't had it enough or recent enough to comment. Now I get Dick's in Seattle and while also cheap, it's just not nearly the same.

          Their tacos are like post club food. Gotta get the sour cream with them, and the hot sauce. Their jalapeno poppers were also good, but kinda hard to frick that up. I want to say that they had a jelly sauce you could get with them, but that might have been somewhere else.

    Pretty sure Culinaly regularly shits on it, and I know I shit on it as well. Fast food burgers are NOT good, and anyone claiming they are is gaslighting you (or is an NPC that doesn't know better). Fast food burgers use literal pink slime shit in frozen patty form, with fake grill marks and shit. Hell, McDicks doesn't even seem to use real meat anymore. And at BEST you are getting an UNSEASONED 70:30 or 60:40 cheap ass blend burnt on a griddle and slapped with some cheese. Even restaurant burgs are disappointing.

    Make your own fricking burgers at home. Get real meat, season your shit, cook with charcoal, and enjoy a real fricking burger. Don't let Goyslop Inc. make you a foot lettuce impossible burger and have Laquisha sell you that slop for $20. Don't let Hipster Soiboi Bistro sell you a marginally better gastropub burger for $45. Make. Your. OWN.

    Even a smashburger in a pan is going to be lightyears better than ANY slopburger.
