In-N-Out Burger is only found in three states, Arizona, California, and Nevada. They are famously known for their fresh food and cheap menu. It is a very limited menu, but it is great. The thing that makes this place unique and great is that EVERYTHING is made fresh and before your eyes. The potatoes are peeled and sliced where you can see them, they have huge slabs of freshly ground beef—and yes, it is even red, not a frozen brown—the lettuce and tomatoes are cut from fresh produce, and everything they do to your food is right out in the open so you can see it. This also tells me that they must take great concern with their sanitation standards to be able to do that with the public watching. So not only is everything fresh, but it is really good, with reasonable sizes to fill you up and at reasonable prices. Now, I mentioned that the menu is limited. Well, this is how they are able to keep everything fresh and tasting great. Your choices are a hamburger, a cheeseburger, or a double double burger; fries; and a drink or shake, and that is pretty much it. So this keeps you from having to make a huge decision. Do you want one or two patties and fries? The prices are quite low for such freshness and uniqueness. I think like a hamburger is $0.99 and a double double is like $1.99. Two people can eat for $10 having two burgers a piece, sharing a fries, and each having a drink—now that is a bargain to me. In-N-Out provides a '50s diner-type atmosphere and is very friendly and welcoming to all their guests. Be prepared to wait just a little since this place is always busy, but it is worth the wait even for fast food. See http://www.in-n-out.com/menu.asp.
