Yesterday on Twitter and Facebook I mentioned that I’d had my first Five Guys burger. I’d heard from a couple of folks that this burger rivals and even surpasses the famous In-N-Out burger. I spent my high school years in Southern California consuming In-N-Out hamburgers, fries and shakes so I take any claim of burger superiority very seriously. Though it was a tasty burger with above average fries, I can now conclusively assert that In-N-Out makes the best burgers in the country.
I mentioned this to a friend this morning and he emailed me this infographic a few hours later. It’s an attempt at objectivity, but I think the evidence points towards the west coast.
I’m a bit nervous to ask- not wanting to start any turf wars here- but does anyone want to weigh in on the Five Guys VS In-N-Out debate? Or is there another lesser-known burger joint we should know about?
