Just can't eat these mortal fries after Chili's Texas Fries. 2000 calories of deliciousness.

All of you that have never experienced the marvelous deliciousness that is In-N-Out Burger have my sympathies.

http://www.in-n-out.com/

As I said, I've had fries at every place listed in the poll (and mentioned in the thread). It's no contest. In-N-Out is king!

BTW, Hardee's = Carl's Jr.

Five Guys fries make me physically ill. I threw up. They're so ridiculously greasy. The bag is soaked.

I also refuse to eat anything at Wendy's anymore since they switched to those nasty sea salt fries. They're disgusting.

Burger King for me. Or McD's.

The problem with In-N-Out is their owner refuses to allow franchises so it's still only available in a few states. Next time I'm in Arizona (February or March) I'm definitely going to try In-N-Out. When I was down there in April I drove by an In-N-Out but decided not to go there but I've got to see if it lives up to the hype.

For your first visit to In-N-Out, I recommend:

• Double-double with grilled onions (don't change anything else this first time)
• Fries (some like them well done, I prefer them regular)
• Favorite soft drink
• Vanilla shake (or chocolate if you must)

Once you are an experienced In-N-Out eater, you can get more creative:

Ultimate In-N-Out Secret Menu

But, trust me, you want to taste it the regular way BEFORE you start getting creative. I've tried a bunch of the secret menu options and I always come back to the regular Double-Double with grilled onions.

The reasons that In-N-Out is so good: ALWAYS fresh beef, NEVER frozen; burgers cooked from raw to order, none of that pre-cooked/reheated crap; hand-leafed lettuce, none of that shredded crap; their own recipe for their buns, delivered fresh daily; french fries are made from freshly cut whole potatoes IN THE RESTAURANT, you can actually watch them slice the potatoes moments before they go into the fryer.

BTW, the reason that In-N-Out won't franchise is because it's a family run business and they are committed to maintaining quality and an excellent restaurant experience. Example: In-N-Out pays their employees higher wages than any other fast food chain. Because of that, when you go into an In-N-Out the person helping you doesn't look like he might have just picked his nose and wiped it on his apron. The employees are friendly, cheerful, intelligent and they work FAST.

On top of that, In-N-Out is one of the least expensive burger joints. DRAMATICALLY less expensive than a place like Five Guys.

I would say In-N-Out with the addendum that I have not tried Five Guys (it's not here).

McDonald's CAN POSSIBLY be second, but it's so unreliable as to whether or not you'll get their best.

Everything else is crap for regular fries (fast food wise).

Jack in the Box has the best Curly Fries IN THE WORLD!

So basically In-N-Out is located out west?


We have Five Guys here too, and I tried their fries once. They were pretty good when they were soggy.

You are most definitely an In-N-Out connoisseur. I commend your dedication to that restaurant. I feel kind of bad for those who've never experienced an In-N-Out meal. I don't even eat fast food anymore (although I do eat a fair amount of junk food, in waves, as I am a huge fan of chips), but the fries from In-N-Out are a beautiful thing. My favorite thing about them is how they're cut right there, right in front of you. Nothing beats a freshly-cut-potato-straight-to-the-frier french fry. None of that frozen crap that comes out of a freezer bag.

When I was still eating fast food (many years ago at this point), I'd always thought their burgers were good, too. I probably wouldn't go as far as you do as praising their employees, but I would say that there's simply "something different" about the employees you see there when compared to a typical fast food joint like BK or McDonald's.

Yep, had they been able to keep them crispy combined with the amount you get. Hands down #1

Back to the topic at hand...
I've been to California twice, but I bypassed the fast-food chains in favour of restaurant dining. Now, after watching a host of travel shows and recommendations on this forum, I'll need to make a return trip out west to check out places like In-N-Out.

Don't know who to vote for on the poll, but I LOVED Wendy's fries BEFORE they went to the current sea salt ones. I'll probably still go with them.

Btw, I'd have to call BK the worst.

Don't forget there are In-N-Out locations in Arizona, Utah, Texas (Dallas Ft. Worth area) and Nevada. There are several in Las Vegas. Whenever we are in Vegas we make a point to stop at the location on Tropicana right near I-15. Gotta support In-N-Out no matter where they are!

In-N-Out used to hand out bumper stickers with "IN-N-OUT" printed on the first line and "BURGER" printed right below that. Then someone figured out they could take a pair of scissors and cut off the "B" and the "R" of burger to change it to an "IN-N-OUT URGE" bumper sticker. That multiplied like wildfire across Southern California. I still occasionally see trucks with that bumper sticker on their rear window. Eventually, In-N-Out changed their bumper stickers to make it more difficult for such shenanigans.

So, where is Whataburger on the list? They are privately owned like In-N-Out but have over 700 stores.

I've had both and highly prefer Whataburger. Plus I can go get a burger at 3 or 4 in the morning. Can't do that with In-N-Out.

Mmmmmmmm, triple triple with grilled onions and A-1 barbeque sauce....

I could eat MacDonald's fries all day if I could.

A close runner-up would be the curly fries from Arby's.

In-N-Out is one of the most overrated places I've ever ate at. Tried it twice last year in Dallas. Just nothing to write home about IMO.

If I had to pick from the list I'd probably go with McDonald's fries. Wendy's was great before until they switched to the current sea salt. Gotta lay the salt to the McD's fries though. I'd rather have cheese sticks with a burger personally. lol
