Hamburger Time

Tonight I turned over to History Channel 2 after watching the exiting last inning of the Oakland A’s baseball game.

A program titled 101 Fast Foods that Changed the World was just finishing up and was in the last ten of the countdown. I was eager to find out what would end up on top, so watched the rest of the show.

Since the hamburger was number one on the list, I started to think about hamburgers.

Double-Double, Hamburger, In-N-Out, California, Best BurgerHere is one of my favorite hamburgers. The Double-Double from In-N-Out.

I had one last Wednesday on my way home from the airport. It was really delicious.

What I really like is the fresh ingredients and the attention to quality. In-N-Out is not franchised so they have much better control of their product at each location.

French Fries, Freshe French Fries, In-N-Out Fries, Fresh Cut FriesFrench fries was also in the top 10 list in the show. Of course I had to have some with my hamburger. I ordered a number one which is a combo meal with a Double-Double, fries and a drink.

The French fries at In-N-Out are cut fresh right before going into the fryer. I really like the texture and taste of their fries.

In-N-Out Hamburgers, Number 1, Combo Order, Burger and FriesHere is my full order, doesn’t it look delicious? Believe me, it was šŸ™‚

I can just imagine what Bert Gray would think about hamburgers as they are now. It has now been more that 112 years since he served the first hamburger in his Cafe in Clarinda, Iowa. It is believed that his was the first restaurant to serve a hamburger that meets our modern definition.

In-N-Out Burger, Pleasanton California, Burgers, Best Burger, California CultureIn-N-Out started in California, but has now spread to five states; California, Nevada, Arizona, Utah and Texas.

Their first locations in Texas was the Dallas-Fort Worth area, but they are now expanding all the way down to San Antonio. My Texas friends can now get their In-N-Out fix.

To me In-N-Out is much better than those Five Guys.

What is your favorite hamburger chain?
