SK, don't get me wrong, I don't hate the 5 Guys fries. They do have a pretty good flavor. I just think that they would be better if cooked and served right.
BTW, the In-N-Out fries that I had the one time were pretty poor. Not as good as a typical serving at a McDonald's. Maybe it was just the luck of the draw, and I was there at the wrong time, but ellen4641, who lived out there, agrees. They look better in the photo than in real life. The sandwich was OK. The lettuce and tomato were fresh.
Ellen4641 is HERE and weighing in !
YES, that is correct, I certainly DO agree that IN and OUT'S fries were like SAWDUST...
about the worst ones I ever had in my 50 years! Just my humble opinion, of course..
I HATED them....
I don't exactly love the fries at 5 Guys, as I do find them a little limp.. but I always get them, out of habit..
(what's a burger without fries, right?!?)
I will try leaving the brown bag OPEN next time , Tony!
My sentiments EXACTLY , DON, regarding your assessment of the IN and Out Burger...
the sandwich was just "okay".... yes, their lettuce and tomato were very FRESH, and they seem to keep harping on that; meanwhile the beef patty was VERY small; even SK Bob was wondering "Where's the BEEF?!? Did it slide down?" .. any time I got a burger there, it was tons of thick lettuce, and hardly and meat...
I found the "animal style" burger (not on the menu) more tasty, due to the grilled onions..
And regarding FIVE GUYS, I feel it's a decent burger, and I appreciate it for what it IS : a good extra FRESH burger.... .... at that some locations ARE better (and juicier) than others...
for instance, I find the Somers Point, NJ burger too DRY, but the Absecon and Mays Landing location are well done, but still juicy...(not an oxymoron, in this case, believe it or not)
I still prefer charbroiled burgers the best, though..
Just like you do, DONNIE!
