I pretty much lived my life on the East Coast. I've always heard about In-n-Out burger. Great Rep. Long Lines. Gotta be doing something right. Overall I have say I'm disappointed. Nothing special. I had a burger urge last night. I went to 5 Guys which I think is way better then In-N-Out. Even the fries are top notch at 5 Guys
Where do you guys eat for a good cheap burger

Culver's is pretty great. Outside of the Midwest it's smash burger or 5 guys for me. In n out is OK - maybe better than other fast food, but worse than these fast-casual places where it takes 10 minutes to get food.

Of the places you listed, Five Guys has the best burgers, hands down. Full disclosure, I have not had an In-n-Out burger.

However, I wouldn't consider Five Guys fast food since they don't start cooking it until after you order it. Of the other places listed, Wendy's would get my vote as the best burger.

DQ burgers have to be the worst burgers, period. They remind me of the hockey pucks my elementary school cafeteria used to pass off as hamburgers.

False. Nothing is worse than White Castle, or even close to.

Maybe you're going to the wrong Five Guys.

As people enter, the order taker / cashier is supposed to call out the number of people who walked in - even before they get to the counter. The cooks then estimate a quantity and start cooking right away.

Maybe it's not the best, but I enjoy Jack in the Box because they try to be creative with their menu offerings.

I like trying all their new burger combinations. Also, they seem to come closest to making their burgers actually look like their advertising. For awhile, i was taking comparison photos, and Jack did really well.

I would vote for Five Guys, except (a) at least where I live, a Bacon Cheeseburger there is $10.50, and (b) is it really "fast food"? Is, say, Fatburger or Fuddrucker's "fast food"? My vote went to Carl's Jr, although I probably would have voted Whataburger if they're all the same as the one that I have had (at Houston's main airport) - the nearest one to anywhere in California (or Nevada, for that matter) is in Phoenix.

I'll have a Baconator or a Double Whopper, usually to take home because the soda is cheaper at home.

Interesting. Maybe I'm going to right Five Guys! ;)

The ones around here, the cashier calls out to the cook how many patties to throw on the grill when you order.

Perhaps they do the estimating thing when they are super busy? I usually go during the slower times.

Slight tangent and speaking of bad burgers, Wendy痴 uses burgers that are too old to serve as the meat for their chili.
