    Sometimes I am very much in the mood for diner food. Thick starchy food served on thick chunky china by a thick chunky waitress, and all of it hot and salty and slathered in gravy.

    Except the waitress, I mean.

    Well, it takes away bad breath, eg after eating a lot of garlic.

    Even if you have to wait interminably long for a burger.

    It's the only burger chain the states that doesn't taste like fast food.

    And I love how all the kids who work there are so clean cut and wholesome and chipper like they were transported out of the 1950s. I think they must have a rule there about how short guy's hair has to be.
    The article on In-N-Out at Wikipedia explains much of the awesomeness of the company and the food, you should check it out. One of the few companies that even the people railing against fast food chains can't seem to find fault with. I mean, if you're going to eat a burger, there's basically nowhere better you could go, either for the price or the quality, and it's better for you that any of the competition. The company is as wholesome and honest as they come, they even pay their employees better than any other fast food place.

    To give you an idea of the lengths they go for freshness: For anyone that's never been there, they make a tray of fries by literally taking a whole peeled potato, slicing it in a manual slicer, and tossing it in the basket before dropping it in the oil. Even with everything they do to make it as fresh as possible, an entire burger/fries/drink meal is just a bit over 5 bucks.

    I probably have a craving for one of their burgers every two or three weeks, and I don't feel bad about eating them either.

    Yes, it's amazing what a well-stocked kitchen and a free dinner can do for your morale when you're at work til midnight!

    I like In-N-Out's burgers, but their french fries are so awful that I rarely if ever go there. If I'm craving fast food, I usually wind up at Carl's Jr.

    I gotta admit, this does look pretty appealing.

    No, not at all, but I do limit the animal products that my family consumes. (At least at home.) I make salmon filets once a week or so, and use ground turkey as an ingredient in things like stews and pasta sauces, but meat is almost never the centerpiece of our meals.

    Hahahha.

    Wolf: Yes, In-N-Out is a 'local' institution that I enjoy supporting. I don't feel guilty on any level!

    FM: Really? I dislike Carls Jr. fries. Very bland, like In-N-Out done wrong. The fries at In-N-Out better are like thin, chewy homefries. Yummmmm.

    Ivy: Very nice. I try to do more fish and seafood or poultry as opposed to meat in theory, but honestly I have a penchant for ham. I saw on TV that 'ham cafes' are very popular in Barcelona and I could totally hang with that. Prosciutto!

    Uber: I used to dislike 'fancy' dining establishments because they are stuffy and I often am catching a quick meal alone or else a more social meal with friends where such an atmosphere is a turn off. Then as I get older I realize I want to experience, understand, and feel comfortable in all spectrum and sorts of dining environments including the posh ones. "Posh dining" can run the spectrum as far as atmosphere and ambiance (meaning it can actually be pretty casual) and gives you access to a lot of food that you can't get in cheaper establishments and is hard to make yourself (unless you are a gourmet chef).

    Alright, I'll make up for thread derailment by posting pics of what I ate. I might paste something from the restaurant I go to though.

    I'm trying to find out more about food-combining but WOW. Talk about restrictive and confusing. What CAN I eat together???

    I think our Hardees restaurants are the same as your Carl's Jr. except with less variety. Hardees just started carrying "natural cut" fries that are SO GOOD. And, wannabe-vegan though I may be, I FREAKING LOVE THEIR BURGERS.

    Really? I'm scared to eat there. I also didn't realize that Carls' Jr. was a real burger joint. It's mentioned the movie Idiocracy as is Starbucks, only Starbucks isn't selling coffee 500 years from now.

    Why are you scared to eat there? It's not a taco truck.

    I wondered if the Idiocracy people wanted to use McDonalds for that but the company wouldn't allow it (I wondered the same about Costco- probably meant to be WalMart).
