This makes me think how much I used to love Hardee's Burgers but the Hardee's in Pittsburgh are all gone save for one that USED to be in a rough part of town near where a girl I dated used to live...  They rocked.  Those and Rax, but that was a roast beef/deli meats type place.

I swear, these places like White Castle and In & Out (Heh) are just foreign to me.  Even when I used to travel a bit I didn't recall seeing these places.

I like Steak & Shake in Pittsburgh, but there's literally only 2 of them here right now, and none within 45 minutes of my house.  They're like an oddity here that people will line up and wait a very long time to eat there.  It's kinda funny.  One's opening at the new mall which will put it about 25 minutes from me (5 minutes from my gf's house) so that's good...  Makes it worthwhile to go to.

In-n-Out is basically a classier McDonald's, better meat, fresh veggies, made from scratch.  Not super processed dreck they slop on a bun at McD's

Brian,

Let's do it, my treat.  There is one right next to my job in Tempe off the 101 and Chandler Blvd.  Drop me a PM when you are up for lunch.

When I move out the Phoenix in a couple days I will have to eat at one of those In an Out places.  Back here in the Midwest I really like Portillo's.  But I think they are just in the Chicago area? 

If we are going with the main chains like Burger King, Mac's, Wendy's, etc.  I would probably go with Burger King as well.  After all they are burger kings.  So, it all makes sense.

There are tons of Red Robins  near me I think I have 5 within a 6 mile radius of my house. They are definitely good but there's a place called Cheesy Jane's (they only have them here in Denver and in San Antonio) that beat it's it. They are so juicy and

My non-fast food burger ranking would be:

1. Fudruckers (I think they also only have them here in Denver and in San Antonio) They make amazing burgers and they have a whole big place to top them yourself, and the buns are amazing too.
1. Cheesy Jane's They have a 1lb burger, if you eat it all you get your picture on the wall, they taste so good.
2. Chili's
4. Red Robin
5. Gunther Tooty's (a local 50's diner)

And my favorite fast food place:

1. (tie) Sonic and Carl's Jr. (it is the same as Hardee's and Star burger)
2. In and Out (I've only been there once cause I'm not on the west coast)
3. Wendy's (gotta love the 99 cent Jr. Bacon Cheesseburgers)
4. Burger King (I can't say I'm a fan)
1,000,000th. McDonalds ( I get sick whenever I eat ther I think it has been at lest a year now since I've eaten there. Not to mention the burger's taste like crap anyways.)

Jesse, I'm with you on the White Castle and In and Out burger joints. Foreign to me. I just tried White Castle in Indy for the first time. Then I drove down the road and totaled the car. ::) I don't know if the two are connected somehow, but whatever.

I like how their burgers don't have cheese, and way too much onion. >:(

Non Fast-Food:
1. Fudruckers...just wow
2. Hopps
3. Stax Omega
4. California Dreaming

Fast Food:
1. DAIRY QUEEN GRILL...words cannot describe how freaking amazing that place is. The burgers are absoultley wonderful! Toasted and Buttered buns to boot!
2. Burger King
3. Hardees
4. Sonic
5. Rush's (I think its only in Columbia, SC)
6. McDonalds

My vote would go for a non-fast food joint, Huey's, a local Memphis place that has a great burger IMHO.

Yeah Portillo's is only in Chicagoland. But there is like 20+ of them throughout the area, one just opened up a couple miles from my house over the winter. Good food, though I haven't had a burger there yet.

In-n-out is unquestionably the heathiest of burger if the burger chains, but My personal fave is Wendy's.

I'm a west coast guy so I have to put my money on In-N-Out.

As a West Coast born and raised guy, In-n-Out gets my vote too...

In-N-Out for me also in the fast food category.

Last two times I went to California, I ate In-n-Out 3 of the 4 meals I was there, they are the best...

Big ditto from me.  The In-N-Out Double-Double all the way.  In fact, there's one just a mile down the street from my office here that I may just have to stop by for lunch today.  Please, don't all act jealous at once now...  Thanks.  :-*

Is it wrong that I thought In-n-Out was a Gay club the first time I saw it?
