Of course In 'n Out is not the BEST burger ever... we are just talking about fast food burgers. I make a mean burger at home and like most things... it is always better when it is homemade.

What we are trying to say is that is sure beats McDonalds... Burger King... ect. When you need a quick burger pick me up it does the job without being greasy and sloppy.

Plain and simple!

The Red Mill on Dravus ( Interbay/Magnolia) is less crowded than the one on Phinney. Like Yogi Berra said " Nobody goes there anymore. It's too crowded."

Mmmmmmm. Tried the Burgermaster in Bellevue last night. Onions rings were decent but not Red Mill level. It felt like I've had those onion rings somewhere else before whereas the Red Mill ones are unique. Burger was decent too. The rootbeer shake was better than the Red Mill one. Red Mill rootbeer shake tasted like a regular vanilla shake whereas the Burgermaster one had I'm guessing more rootbeer syrup in it if such a thing exists. Still not the best rootbeer shake I've had but not too shabby.

Anyone try a burger at the Pumphouse in Bellevue? We used to go there every now and then but can't as much now because of having a child but we can still takeout. Decent burgers too.

How is the parking situation at the Dravus location? I've only been to the Phinney one and while the lot is usually full, the streets provide ample parking.

They've got a usually full small lot but plenty of nearby street parking at the Dravus Red Mill.

In-n-Out I enjoyed, and I found them and Dick's to be about the same. I also don't understand the concept of "secret combinations" that they have. Basically, if I ask for a double-double "animal style" they'll put on a ton of lettuce, onion, pickle, tomato, and 1000 island dressing. Or something like that. But they don't list that option, it's one of the "secret" options you have to ask around (or just ask the cashier). At least with Dick's it's straightforward.

However, if I were to choose a company to invest in, it would be In-n-Out because some of the new management have expansion tones. I went to their store in Phoenix a few times when I went there on business. It's a "better than McDonald's but not too much better" alternative to McD's.

On the religion note ... I wonder, Chick-fil-A is also run by religious zealots - none of their drive ins are open on Sunday, and their family is very devoutly Mormon.

No, it's not owned by Mormons.

*shrugs*

All I remember is when I visited Phoenix and discovered Chik-fil-A I was like "wow, this is actually decent." Then I tried to go on a Sunday after work (ugh) and much to my dismay they were closed.

Oh well. The local In-n-Out wasn't complaining ... all the customer who would have gone to Chik-fil-A went there instead.

Another thing I noticed while I was down there ... the people weren't as fat in general. I mean, yes, there were obese people around but it seemed like for as often as some of them went to eat out, they didn't get fat. I had no idea how they did it either because partly I was there in the summer when all you could do outside is sweat and get sunstroke, except between 11 PM and 6 AM.

Maybe the sun baked it all off xD ... anyway, that's my little "wtf is Eskercurve thinking" sidebar. This thread is almost off-topic ... sorry!
