Speaking of food, this is about as good as it gets when it comes to eating a Cheeseburger at a chain restaurant. Now admittedly there are a lot of hamburger places I have not eaten in yet but be patient I am trying to get to them all as fast as I can...lol!
But when it comes to fast food chain restaurants that specialize in hamburgers I have just about tried them all... In fact I have tried them all a lot. I like to joke that I am personally responsible for a few million on the McDonald's sign. Believe me, it is barely and exaggeration...
I will say that Wendy's new and improved hamburgers are pretty good. They are much better than they were and you can have a Frosty to top it off. That's not bad at all.
In-N-Out which is all out west and slowly and carefully creeping east serves a very good burger. They always serve them hot and fresh and can move a crowd through in style. All of the other places could learn a thing or two from them in management. The employees are nice, the restaurants are clean, the food is hot and the over all experience is always good. Every time I have been there in several different cities it has always been great. Plus the owners are not ashamed of their Christianity and that is tremendous. I give them bonus points for that.
I really like the burgers at In-N-Out but I have to give the edge to Five Guys in my personal opinion. They are a little pricey but every thing is pricey now days. The fries are really good, the burgers are fresh with a little grease left in (Regular readers know how I feel about the necessity of grease!) and all of the toppings are free.
Now, I would not consider Ron's Hamburgers and Chili a big chain even though they have more than one location. Everybody in the world should have a chance at a Double Big Daddy. There is no way fast food can compete with that. But for fast food chains Five Guys gets my vote.
A Double Cheeseburger with grilled onions, mushrooms, mayo, ketchup and mustard is a great way to start the day. If you haven't tried it, I encourage you to do so. If you have tried it, let me know what you think. You can click on the title of this blog for a link to locations.
