When In-N-Out came to Utah, one would have thought from the Californians that Zeus had finally come down from Mount Olympus and graced the world with the best burgers ever given to humans a feat that can only be matched by the gods giving us fire. While most of Utah County circled the blocks waiting for their little slice of heaven, I waited expecting this to be too similar to Chadders for their own good. And I wasn't wrong. The first time I went to In-N-Out was almost my last. The burgers were just a burger and the fries tasted like cardboard. I know they make their fries fresh -- you can watch them slice up their potatoes just before putting them in the fryer. I've never seen anyone mess up on freshly made fries -- but they have mastered that art.
Since I found out about the hidden menu I have been back several times. I still don't completely understand the hype, but I do like the food and recommend it to others who are in the area looking for a burger. I wouldn't pass up a Wendy's or a Burger King, though, to get here; the burgers are just as good and you don't have to pay for extra toppings on your fries to get something you'll like.
