Posted on 04/08/2011 9:32:29 PM PDT by Mike Darancette
5 guys just moved into town which is better In-N-Out Burgers or Five Guys?
From what I hear 5 Guys is better but for fries, shakes, burger taste and prices. What say you all.
Never heard of either one.
It depends what you like,
5 Guys have a crazy amount of options with a good burger but In and Out has simplicity on their side.
The first time I went to 5 guys, the burger wasn’t that great but I discovered it was the way I ordered it.
The second time 5 guys blew me away after I got some ordering tips online.
I think Fat Burger has them both beat, even better is XXX
5 Guys, definitely!
They just put one in around me too. Haven’t been there yet. In N Out still has the fastest drive-through AND awesome burgers.
No In and out here in Ga. Five guys ok, lots of fries
and you can get a dog with bacon, that’s a plus.
I always liked Whataburger down in Florida.
We used to have a local place here years ago called
Seven Steers. still the best they had seven different
kinds of burgers, Hickory BBq, Teryaki, Blue cheese
hawaiian, oh how I miss them.
Char-Grill in Raleigh.
FIVE GUYS beats them all, not even close.
As a company, they are kicking ass and taking names....growing very quick.
Five guys has bacon,spicy fries and split & grilled dog.
IN-n-Out Animal style and Neopolitan shakes rock.
Usually fries are under fried get them medium-well... that way they come out like McD fries.
Fat Burger is aggressively mediocre.
In-N-Out for sure. I tried 5 Guys a few weeks ago and they don’t even compare. I heart In-N-Out.
In and Out!
Yes. Fat Burger is the best. In and Out has the best fries though.
Something you can get at Five Guys (Here anyway) that I can’t find ANYWHERE else is “Birch Beer”!! Yaaaa
Drop a scoop of vanilla ice cream in a mug of Birch Beer and .. HELL YEA!!
I think In-N-Out is only in California....Five Guys is in several states.
If you like both equally, REMEMBER, In N Out is privately owned by a devoutly Christian family, FWIW.
Always liked cook out when I lived in Raleigh... but that was 10 years ago.
But there is no drive through. The management has no satisfaction in you making an order and driving away.
I’ve given up red meat for Lent, so... I hate you.
But I’ve had both, and I still have to go Double-Double Animal Style. With a side of Five Guys fries.
I ate at Five Guys once. Didn’t care for it. Too greasy and I don’t like the fries.
“I go to White Castle cause it’s the best
but then I buy a Fat Burger when I’m way out west.”

Double-Double Animal Style ??
In my home town, we have a place called Lawtons. It's Been there since 1929 and the hot dogs are as famous around here, as Nathan's is in Coney Island.
I’ve never heard of 5 Guys but I do luuuuv my In ‘n’ Out.

We don’t have in-n-out burgers here. A 5 guys just opened up down the freeway and they are ok.
Jee, I could eat a burger right now. Dang.
And In-n-Out has the cleanest kitchen, nicest staff and best service of any fast food (and most dine-in) restaurant in the country. Never got a wrong order. Never had anything less than a perfect experience there. Fast food heaven.
In and Out is expanding, They are in 5 States, Their strategy is to take on Five Guys.
They were were a very expensive franchise and that is the reason they were growing so slow in the past.
They are changing that and are looking to go into overdrive.
If you have a Five Guys that is successful near you, you will likely see an In-n-out open up.
Fat Burger doesn’t compete with either of these, they tend to open up where there are real burger connoisseurs and established burger houses with long waits
People would still like to go to their regular local fancy burger house, but the Fat Burger has a drive thru with almost no wait
You might want to get out more often. Between the two of them they have over 900 locations. I live in southwest Missouri and we have none anywhere near here yet I've heard of both. I can't for the life of me understand why somebody would want to go on a thread and say something that is essentially, "I don't know anything about this topic so I'm going to show what a dumbazz I am."
Well, you sound like someone who ought to patronize restaurants that don’t have a drive up window.
The free market has overwhelmingly confirmed that many people like the convenience and privacy that drive-up windows provide. You apparently are not one of those many, and instead think they are “pesky”. No problem, but here’s a tip: a drive-up window cannot be pesky if you don’t patronize restaurants that have them.
Double-Double Animal Style is an In-n-Out invention
All this talk is making me hungry too...
5 guys is totally overrated. I could make the same thing on my webber.
I have never eaten at 5 Guys, but In-n-Out, good tasting that it is, tends to be a little bit salty in my opinion. I think that is because the size and shape of the patty is thin at 1/4 pound before cooking. So the salt tends to stay at the surface. When you bring the size of the patty up to 1/3 lb, it stays juicier and meatier. Many of the new “gourmet” places including The Counter (which is becoming quite popular and growing very fast as a chain/franchise in the So Cal area) have taken to the 1/3 pound patty.
When I make Burgers at home, I make them around 1/3 pound, always have. I just like them meatier, thicker, fleshy.
Fat burger my favorite.
In n out second
5Guys last and inane three near my house.
Never heard of 5 Guys. In and Out does fresh burgers and fresh cut fries. They have a limited menu..
One better than In and Out is Fuddruckers. Great fresh ground round..but, it’s not a fast food setting.
This thread is making me hungry.
I’ve had the opportunity to try both in the last month and my vote goes to 5 guys! :)
Secret menu. Extra pickles, extra spread, fried onions, burgers grilled in mustard. Ridiculously good. Throw in some well-done fries and you’re golden.
