Consumer Reports: In-N-Out Best Burger

September 8, 2010

The new issue of Consumers Reports confirms what almost anybody in California, Nevada, Utah, or Arizona already knows: In-N-Out makes the best burger. [Consumer Reports]

The magazine surveyed 28,000 online subscribers and asked them to rate the burgers at 18 fast food restaurants. In-N-Out came out on top.

Ranked near the bottom: Wendy’s and Burger King.

Ranked at the very bottom: McDonald’s. Here’s the review of the Golden Arches:

“The basic burger was one 3.5-ounce patty with pickle slices, bits of chopped raw onion, and a dab of ketchup and mustard, served on a lightly browned bun. The meat tasted mild and more greasy than beefy. It was easier to bite through than the Five Guys patty and was uniformly round and brownish-gray. The major flavor came from the toppings. The bun was airy and bland.”

In-N-Out restaurants can be found locally in Santa Maria and Atascadero. A new Arroyo Grande location is set to open later this year.

I still like Virgils burger….thats some oldtimer stuff….in and out burgers are pretty tasty:-)

The best burgers in Atascadero are found next to the Sunken Gardens at Sylvesters.

Try Dan’s Grub Shack in the kMart center!

I would agree with this survey. I also like the Carl’s Jr. 6 Dollar Burgers. (Yum….)

However… My favorite Burger places are independent mom and pop “Walk Ups”.

I love a real good teriyaki burger. (Great, now I’m hungry…)

I was under the impression that most visitors to this site are vegans and wouldn’t have much interest in this shocking article

You remind me of Michael Stivic’s characters nickname from “All in the Family”. The one that Archie called him.
