In-N-Out Burger - Las Vegas, Nevada
OK. Let me start this post by saying that I'm a burger fanatic. If I said I wasn't, I would be lying. I've tried burgers from so many places over the years, but haven't really found another quite like the ones at In-N-Out.
This past weekend, I had the pleasure of visiting an In-N-Out Burger that is located in Las Vegas, Nevada near UNLV (University of Nevada - Las Vegas). I was in Texas on a business trip and took a detour on the way home. Why would I even bother to stop in Las Vegas if it were not for the amazing nightlife (i.e. casinos, nightclubs, etc.) and for In-N-Out Burger?
In-N-Out has been making burgers since 1948 and has locations throughout Arizona, California and Nevada. They have had the same simple menu for years...no chicken sandwiches, salads or onion rings here, just good old fashioned burgers and fries. In fact, this is the first time that I've seen a combo meal on the menu!
Food is prepared fresh AFTER your order is placed. No warmers used here...EVER! The fries are not frozen and are fresh cut using a hand operated device (near the sink).
Today, I ordered the number 1: Double-double burger®, fresh cut french fries and medium drink (US$4.80).
The double-double® is made up of two 100% beef patties, two slices of American cheese, lettuce, tomato, spread (a special sauce), and onions (optional) which are all piled high on a toasted, fresh baked bun. This has got to be the best fast food burger that I have ever tasted! It's juicy and flavorful.
The fries, which are handcut, are simply amazing. Fried in 100% vegetable oil, the french fries are so light and crisp. No greasy taste here...and they're served un-salted!
If you're ever in Arizona, California or Nevada, and if you want the best fast food burger around, pay a visit to In-N-Out. You'll be happy you did.
