LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — In-N-Out is the latest fast food chain to raise its prices, blaming the soaring costs of core ingredients like dairy and beef.

The chain’s famous Double-Double will now cost $3.45, up 15 cents.

The price of hamburgers and cheeseburgers have also risen 10 cents, while the cost of a soda is up 5 cents.

In-N-Out’s last price hike was just last year.

Chipotle recently announced its raising the price of steak burritos and chicken salads by about five percent

And the government still refuses to consider food in it’s inflation calculation.

Toss in a few $10/hour minimum wage brainiacs serving your burgers up hot and fresh...you got the makings for a real eating revolution.

They blame the cost of ingredients but also pride themselves in starting wages of $10 per hour. It must be the meat. Always blame the meat.

The Counter has the best burgers IMHO.

The Habit, Tomboys, [Long list of Mom and Pop burger places and bars]...

...then maybe the bland offerings of In 'n Out.

What's with those fries? How do they make potatoes taste like chalk?

And the next increase will be because of wage increases imposed by law; or Obamacare expenses causing a reduction in hours or termination for a lot of employees.

But, unions don’t care about that .. and yet will they figure it out when there are less employees to be coerced into joining them ..??

$10 an hour? Well, that’s just racist. Isn’t it supposed to be at least $15?

I really think this is part of the elites’ plan -

they thrive on the difference in lifestyle between themselves and “the masses”.

Since it’s harder to increase your lifestyle beyond a certain point, it’s much easier to reduce everyone else’s lifestyle through destroying the economy.

Yep - it wasn't but a couple of years ago a Double-Double was $2.90...they've had two or three bumpups since then.

Either way, $3.45 beats the hell out of $4.50 for a crappy Big Mac.

It used to be that my local supermarket would have sales of ground beef for $1.99, but that hasn't happened in over a year. Now "sale" price is $2.99, very occasionally $2.49, and sales don't happen that often.

More than that, the elites want servants and mistresses (or "boy-toys" for the gay ones), and it's harder to get people for those positions when the regular economy is doing well.

I tried them a few times and wasn’t impressed. Why do people rave so much about what was until recent years, a California only chain?

Texas is taking Chipolte to task as they apparently are planning to import beef from Australia while Texas ranchers are really struggling to stay afloat. Just don’t understand why they would import beef.

They import beef and other meats from mexico, central america, asia, and australia, because it is cheaper than buying domestic livestock.

Maybe it’s way past time we started charging an import tariff.

This is kind of a mixed bag with Chipolte. They did kick out the Madd Mothers against Guns out of one of their restaurants not long ago. But apparently Todd Staples is making a lot of noise about their importation of beef from Australia, at least for their restaurants in Texas. I just wish one of them - any one of them would make some noise about all the illegals coming across the border and all the crap we import from Mexico.

In n Out is a lot better than McD, Burger King, Jack Box and Wendy’s. It’s not anything like a gourmet burger, tho.
