while in vegas several podders noticed the above sign from the window of our hotel. if you’ve ever been LA, locals will urge you to check out the legendary in-n-out burger. telling you in no uncertain terms that it is without doubt the best burger and fries you will ever eat. and they are right. In-n-out burgers and fries taste amazing in a way that’s difficult to communicate without sounding like a fast food ad. the potatoes used to make fries, for example, are only cut when you order your fries. live in front of your eyes. the staff are super-switched on and enthusiastic about what they do.
i knew in-n-out was a southern california chain, so was bit surprised to see they had ventured as far east as las vegas. feeling a tad hung over i recruited some compadres to go for some much needed grease. as usual, it was packed out, as they always are.
as i always do when i visit their restaurants, i pondered what it is that separates In-n-out from their many competitors. And my conclusion is the same as it always is. and it’s not exciting but it’s very probably true. its’ that In-n-out is truly committed to excellence. now i know that sounds like corporate poo, but in this case it’s the truth. they don’t have a secret formula other than caring A LOT about how their food tastes. they don’t just have a collection of fast-food outlets, they have a cult. it’s well worth checking out.
