Red Robin has expanded to the east coast for about 10 years now and it's fine; but nothing special. The only people who tend get hyped up about it are transplants from out west.
Cookout is light years better than In-N-Out!

I dunno, I looked at that menu and it's massive! Can there really be quality ingredients when there's dozens of items on offer? Not saying it's not so as I have never been, just that I get suspicious seeing one place act like a whole food court. I don't see a viable economy of scale that can adhere to In-N-Out's never frozen, no preservatives model.

IN-N-OUT is number 1 burger chain restaurant by far, always huge lines, great quality, amazing taste & cheap!

It's NOT ALL THAT. It's always crowded because they build them so far from each other. Oftentimes, one must drive several miles away unlike other fast food places that are situated in seemingly every neighborhood.

That's the cult of In-N-Out, old fashioned business and old fashioned value.
Yeah you've got some good points, In-N-Out is ahead of the big guys like McDonalds and BK. I just guess since I've had better food now, I can't get excited about it anymore. If the market is there they should expand as far as it's profitable to do so, I don't have any extra love or affection for them anymore than I do for Jack In the Box, lol.
