    She's going to ruin the company. She's been described as a power mad idiot
    who won't listen to anyone. It's a real shame because we have so very few
    iconic anything in this country anymore. Even a damn burger stand fades
    into oblivion.

    I ate at In'n'Out maybe a handful of times.

    I thought the flavor was nothing short of bland!

    Fatburger or Jack-in-the-Box had more flavor and fixings.

    Whatever happens to In'n'Out, they were on a downhill slide long before
    the daughter took over.

    Five Guys opened up at a nearby stripmall but are in one of the worst
    locations in the place. I've never been. No drive-thru and, I've never
    seen a TV commercial for them.

    I have never eaten at an In'n Out. The pictures of the food and
    descriptions I have heard about just didn't sound appealing.

    They opened an Five Guys near here. No drive-thru and there is always a
    long line of people in there. I assume they are good but unless they change
    from using peanut oil, we won't be eating there.

    I love them and I am a serious burger aficionado. Back before I was
    diabetic I'd eat there once a week and always got the strawberry shake with
    it. I just love their burgers. One big consideration is how old the stand
    is. They use seasoned grills which can take a long time to build up the
    proper patina which lends so much to the flavor. The one near me is at
    least 30 years old.

    Julie,

    In'n'Out excelled in organization and procedure, not to mention
    gimmicks, but left quality at the door, imho. You're not missing out.

    BTW, "Cash Cab" the Discovery Channel game show just yesterday asked
    "What biblical chapter:verse on the bottom of In'n'Out soda cups is
    claimed to be "the Gospel in Scripture?" Answer: John 3:16. I didn't
    like them pushing their religious beliefs on unknowing customers.

    About Five Guys, the peanut oil is just for the french fries and onion
    rings, right?

    Best,

    Andy

    Burgers are not a favorite food. I do eat them but without the bun. I know
    they do a lettuce wrap there, but I don't like lettuce wrapped around a hot
    burger. All that does is wilt it.

    My impression of the food there was that it was really big. Maybe that's
    not the case. Maybe only some of the food is big. I don't know. That's
    just the impression I got from the people I know who ate there.

    The burgers aren't *that* big. I'd say about as big as your average burger
    joint.

    Not much of a push; you have to look very closely to spot it. As a
    customer it doesn't bother me. It would be a point against them if
    I was thinking of working there.

    One time I was in an In-and-Out and I saw a sign stating that their
    fries were cooked in pure cottonseed oil. More recently I haven't
    seen the sign. My parents are from cotton growing country, and I
    never thought that cooking with cottonseed oil was anything to brag
    about. But at least I guess it wouldn't bother people with peanut
    allergies.

    Peanut oil is popular because of its high temperature smoke point.
    Is cottonseed oil actually good stuff?

    Of course, everybody knows that the best tasting fries are cooked in
    lard. Perhaps that is what you are holding out for.

    Yes, but... Those would be the things I would want to eat. Not so much the
    burgers. Heh! I can have the peanut oil but I think it would be rather
    cruel to eat those in front of my daughter since she can't have them.

    Her new favorite place is Bob's Burger and Brew. They're a chain but I
    don't know if they have any outside of this area. Not fast food but not
    fine dining either.

    I like them because they have a raw veggie appetizer that comes with your
    choice of dressing. We get the Italian.

    I have not tried the burgers there although they list quite a variety on the
    menu. They also have Ciabatta sandwiches and a variety of salads. I get
    the small taco salad. It comes with those tri-colored chips. I don't know
    what it is that they put in the red ones but they just don't appeal to me.
    I don't eat the chips. Doesn't matter. I just pick them off and somebody
    usually eats them. They will do a plain chicken breast for my daughter.
    The chicken is an option on any of their burgers and I think they also have
    veggie burgers. Choice of fries, Jojos and possibly onion rings. I know
    they do onion rings because my dad got one on his burger. They also have a
    ton of appetizers, including wings. And they have a big screen TV in one
    room and will put it on any channel you request. They also have a choice of
    TWO diet drinks.

    When we lived in CA, I sometimes went to Carl's. I don't think I ever tried
    the food. My daughter liked the chicken stars when she was just learning to
    eat real foods. She didn't actually like to *eat* them mind you. She just
    had a fascination with shapes. A small order of those would keep her
    occupied at her little high chair for about an hour. She may have eaten one
    or part of one, but mostly she just played with them.

    Oh! I stand corrected then. My husband and his friends used to talk of
    some huge burger that they had there and that is why they wanted to go
    there. They seem to be part of that crowd that loves big food. Doesn't
    seem to matter if the food actually tastes good or not just so long as it is
    big! I assumed all of the portions would be huge.

    Since I just eat the patties, it's far cheaper for me just to eat them at
    home. I buy the precooked ones at Costco. They are good and they are cheap
    when I buy them there. Yeah, it would be cheaper to cook them from raw
    meat. And I do that sometimes, but they really are pretty cheap if bought
    at Costco.

    We don't eat much in the way of fast food. When we do eat there it is
    usually either a Mexican place (but not Taco Bell) or we get salad and fruit
    and just a little something else to round out the meal.

    My daughter has a peanut allergy so can't have it. There is another little
    restaurant (not fast food) near my parent's house that also uses peanut oil.
    But I think most places use soybean for frying. I just assumed the used it
    because it was cheap. I don't really know the reason.

    I do remember the old time McDonald's fries from when I was a kid. Those
    were the only fries I would eat. Not sure it was lard though. I think it
    was beef fat. They were good.

    I've never been there either, but I saw a segment on TV
    about the company which showed their burgers on the griddle,
    and they looked big to me. I haven't eaten a burger
    in about 30 years, so I'm not the least bit tempted
    to try one.

    Properly made, it's bland and makes a good
    frying oil. Raw cottonseed oil has to be
    purified to be edible. David Wesson discovered
    the first commercial process to do this,
    turning waste cottonseed into a valuable
    commodity. Some southern towns had laws
    against dumping cottonseed before this process
    was invented.

    I've heard that one strike against cottonseed
    oil is that it has higher levels of pesticide
    residues than other vegetable oils, because
    cotton is heavily sprayed.

    It was equal parts of both. I don't know
    when they switched, but I think it was about
    20 years ago. I believe it was widespread
    concern about saturated fat that got them
    to abandon the old recipe.

    In-n-Out was Julia Child's favorite burger place.

    At Costco I usually pickup a box of preformed Angus burgers and the oversized
    burger buns. I usually cook a double cheeseburger for Kath and I maybe once a
    month.
    Burgers are almost six inches across, two slices of American Jack cheese,
    pickles, tomato, onion, sometimes bacon but not often, and ketchup these
    burgers are really good. With a salad these burgers are a full meal, and I mean
    full.
