Quite the M.D.

If you're 32, and getting chest pains from lipids/plaque in your arteries, you might want to look at the REST of your diet, and possibly a cardiologist.

From the Philadelphia area, people eat Cheesesteaks every other day without these problems.

Might want to check it out if you were serious.

Yeah even Whataburger trumps it. The vast menu selection & open 24 hours is what sells. They even have a "secret menu" like In N Out.

While good every now & then, I find In N Out's menu to be seriously lacking. I mean all you can order is a burger, fries, & a milk shake for Christ sake. How simplistic is that?

Their fries aren't even that good. Many people complain of them tasting like cardboard which I have noticed too.

Their secret "Animal Style" sauce is nothing more than 1,000 Island Dressing.

I guess for the West Coast they are good, but here in the South, nah, not so much.

In-N-Out's short and simple menu is what sets them apart from other fast food joints. They don't need a huge menu to be popular.

I love their fries. They're fresh, and with some salt, they're tasty. People don't like their fries because all they do is literally cut the potatoes and dry them. They're not seasoned at all, but most people can't seem to figure that out.

Oh I knew that. I see them cutting them up in the drive through window all the time.

McDonald's fries are some of the tastiest you can get & they are frozen. I prefer McDonald's & Whataburger's fries to In N Outs any day.

So, what do you know about the fries? Let me guess, you had them once? Not at all?

When are you in Dallas? You claim you are in Houston and Galveston all the time to spend time with your "girlfriend". You live in Tyler. When does that leave time for trips to Dallas for the In-N-Out drive-through?

By the way, there's an In-N-Out a six-minute walk from my apartment and I have been there about four times in three years. I went to Whataburger about the same number of times in 20 years. Yeah, Whataburger sucks. In-N-Out is at least fresh. Whatever. I don't seek validation in fast food wrappers.

Ask for the fries at In-N-Out "well-done". You'll thank me.

Whataburger is more like Whatever Burger to me. The beef tastes like cardboard.

I don't see the appeal of it to Texans, just as others may not see the appeal of In N Out.
