    In-N-Out
    Double Double Animal Style, Fries Well Done Animal Style and a Neopolitan shake please.

    I've been known to smuggle them back to the East Coast when I'm out west on biz trips. Ah, the dangers of being a fat guy.

    Another kick ass place is The Hat in Lake Forest, Ca just off of Rockfield and the 5 Freeway. It's been there foreave and they make killer pastrami sanwiches.

    Slater's looks good - I'll have to try that next trip to SoCal. Wow, useful information from an It's Time thread! A sign of the apocalypse?

    In-N-Out is a tasty burger, maybe the best of the fast food burgers, but it's far from the best burger on the planet. It's still a fast food burger. It doesn't compare to a small gourmet burger outfit like Kincaid's in Texas. For that matter, it doesn't even compare to Red Robin.

    Gourmet burger > fast food burger. Glad I could help.

    It was Otto's in Houston :cry: there no longer.

    Cooter Brown's in New Orleans is where I spent the most burger time, although I do love the burgers at Port of Call and Camellia Grill.

    The Palm (in WeHo or NYC) has the best burgers by far. I haven't tried the other locations, but I'm sure they're also delicious and probably just as expensive....

    Classic "Prime" Steak Burger 12 ounce cheddar, gouda or Danish blue cheese
    Sauces: Brandy Peppercorn, Hollandaise, Bearnaise and Chimichurri

    For fast food, it's either In-N-Out or if you want a chili burger at 4AM (don't knock it until you've tried it) to soak up some booze, it's Tommy's, Tom's #5 or any one of a dozen Tommy's copycats...

    I love In-N-Out Burgers. I always get a 4x4. 4 hamburgers, 4 slices of cheese, onions, tomatos, lettuce, their sauce and two sponge dough buns with a french fry and Diet Coke. I go about once a week. I work with a guy that goes 3 times a week.

    Odd, but I do the same thing...order a diet Coke with my 2500 calorie burger and fries. I prefer the taste. Regular Coke is too sweet. I haven't drank it in probably 15 years.

    Red Robin sucks IMO. We don't have In and Out in NC but give me Five Guys over RR any day of the week.

    Yes, I drink a half a gallon of Diet Coke to wash the In-N-Out 4x4 down. :drink

    I think regular Coke is too sweet too and if I have the chance I'll cut it with soda water but I can't stand the aftertaste from artificial sweeteners.
