I ate at In and Out today in SFO. I really thought maybe I was missing out because the last time I was there was in AZ, but it just isn't all that, and it's certainly no Five Guys. The fries are a putrid, yellow, limp disgrace to the fresh cut potatoes that made them. McDonald's frozen fries are better than In & Out... but certainly Five Guys is superior to both by a lot. The shake is a nice touch... I wish Five Guys had one, but it's not a great shake... it just hit's the spot. I ordered one animal style and one standard cheeseburger. I could tell the difference, but barely. Both had extremely small "where's the beef" patties, and more lettuce than anyone could possibly want. The lettuce was extremely fresh.. but overwhelming. In and Out definitely has a better delivery method. Five Guys ruins their buns by encapsulating everything in foil and steaming the bread. But that's all they need to fix. Oh, and In and Out is much less expensive, which is worth some points, I guess... Neither is the best burger ever, but in the fast food chain continuum, there is no contest in my book.
