I still "don't get" the In-N-Out craze. When out in CA, I tried them a few times, at a few different locations, just to make sure the first time or two weren't a fluke. The burgers were a slight notch better than BK or McD's. Not nearly as good as Five Guys, Shake Shack, or even California's other chain ...."Fatburger". The only part that made In-N-Out slighty better than McD's or BK is In-N-Out's generous portions or fresh lettuce and onion on the burger. The burger meat itself was a blah, plain 'ol FF style burger. ... And the fries ...yuck! I tried them at 2 separate locations, again... to make sure it wasn't a fluke, .....and they were near the worst I have ever had.
I think their not-so-secret "secret menu" makes people think they are getting some sort of insider special meal, when all they're getting is marketing hype with added condiments.
Would I go to In-N-Out again? Sure, if I lived ear one, and I wanted something quick. But never for their fries, And, I wouldn't pass by a Five Guys or Fatburger to go to In-N-Out.
