As a frequent visitor of southern California and Las Vegas, THIS native Texan doesn't get enough In-N-Out Burger from the trips made there. I am worrying about what we don't have. And I've lived here all of my 31 years.

Okay, one Texan worries about what we don't have here. (And I'll see your 31 and raise you 28 - that does make 59, right? - and then we can get into the traditional "generations" duel - 4th generation on all sides, how about you? ).

Hehe, well at 31 I am at least 4th gen on one side. 2nd on the other...but I have time to catch up for when I reach 59, right?

And I could name a quick 15 people close to me (some related, some not) that would choose In-N-Out over any other fast food burger currently available around south Texas.

When it comes to freshness, value, and corporate-level goodwill, nothing we have available to us in Texas comes close to In-N-Out. Sad but true.

As someone who has worked in the food industry for a while...IMO "freshness" is overrated.

sorry, I would have to disagree: Freshness is never over-rated.. the fresher the product, the more flavor and the healthier (of course I am not sure any hamburger can be really healthy) add to that, InandOut has kept it's menu simple since it opened in Baldwin Park, Ca early 50s...

For the price there is not a better burger anywhere (I said for the price) we will be flying to Ca in two weeks, the minute we pick up our car we will head for InandOut...

Sadly, most people can't tell the difference between a patty you've wiped between your butt cheeks and one fresh out of the oven. (placebo effect) Not that anyone I worked with ever tried it... JKJK!

Some people take freshness to the max though. I remember we used to popcorn at the theater and many people would say the wanted fresh popcorn and we'd give them popcorn that was popped 5 minutes before and they loved it.

Popcorn is not meat though. People still love Boston Market though.

Hah! We used to do the same thing back when I was a teen working for General Cinemas at Cielo Vista Mall in El Paso. The thing was, we used to pop the corn upstairs the day before. Then, the next day before opening, we would haul these 30 quart trash bags downstairs and fill the popcorn bins.
The funny thing was, the warming bins from which we served the popcorn from had no popping kettles, yet no one ever questioned us on it.
Day old popcorn is anything but fresh, yet customers gobbled it up with that nasty, fake, oily, goo we called "butter". lol

I will have hubby eat it animal style for you: I am wondering in the time we are there, how many he will eat...??? When we go to Laughlin (mid summer sometimes) he will walk, in the 120 degree temps a couple of blocks and back just to get one...
