    So I just sat in a drive-thru line for 15 minutes for the "god's gift to food" that is In N Out.

    Never have I been so disappointed in a meal.

    The fries are terrible, the shake tastes like crap, and the double-double came with some Big Mac dressing it said nothing about on the menu, costing me 10 minutes of picking all the mini-pickles and onions off all portions of my burger. By that time it was cold and not good.

    So...what am I missing?

    15 minutes waiting in line at a drive-thru? Well, you had a chance to pull off a quickie before paying for that crap. In and Out was good when I lived in L.A. 15 years ago.

    Well,I mean, I'll take the fall for having to wipe the sauce off. I'm allergic to onions, so I couldn't eat it. I just didn't know it was on there.

    Maybe hot, the burger was good.

    But the fries tasted, I don't know, almost stale.

    And buckweaver, thanks for answering the question. ::)

    Was there not a Krystal nearby?

    You're a terrible human being.

    I did pass a Carl's Jr., first time I'd seen one of those too.

    Isn't Carl's just a Hardee's with another name?

    Tell ME what I'm missing: Are you on your own dime? If you are eating fast food on the company dime, you deserve whatever hell you get for a meal.

    I don't eat at restaurants alone, Moddy. Sorry.

    I had a very similar experience with the much-lauded Steak-N-Shake.

    Never been to an In-N-Out.

    I do. I must be a sorry fuck. I'll eat a fine meal by myself if someone is paying for it.

    Steak n shake's food blows. The shakes are pretty good. Really good.

    Never had one of the new Chick-Fil-A shakes. May have to try one. Just not on Sunday.

    Yeah, I can take or leave Steak N' Shake's food. Usually leave it. Their fries are atrocious.

    But I would kill my own mother and eat her kidney for a shake from that place.
