As a proud Fiskite, I’ve encountered multiple people from the West Coast who scream to the high heavens how awesome In-N-Out Burgers are. On my first visit to the Sacramento Black Book Fair, I went ahead and decided to try it out.
And in my honest opinion, I was underwhelmed. Hear me out. Hear me out. I’ll explain in a picture essay.
After a long wait in line, I was thrilled to get my burger. I loved how they use sustainable products in their packaging. I had to eat in the rental car because I was rushing to get back to the book fair.
I bit into my burger. It was hot and fresh and the animal sauce blended so well with the rest of the burger. I didn’t even taste it over the juiciness of the burger. I was impressed.
Now it was time for some fries. They were thinner than I expected. I like a thick french fry, but I tried them.
I tried the fries, first with the animal sauce. Look, animal sauce is just thousand island. It’s a #nofrommedawg.
This is sooo much better. As a simple burger and fry person, ketchup > animal person all day.
I ended my visit with an awesome lemonade and 7-up mix. It was awesome! I always appreciate a drive-through that puts the straw in the cup for you.
In-N-Out Burgers is ok, but I think it is the equivalent or on the same level as an AWESOME Sonic burger in the Southeast. Blasphemy, you say? No, no, no.
I will say their service was top-notch, as well as the quality of the ingredients and commitment to sustainability via their paper products.
However, I’m not convinced. I’ll let my West Coasters stick to their
overhyped love of In-And-Out.
