The next day, we stopped at In-N-Out in Temecula. In contrast to some fancier, more expensive burger places (i.e., B-Spot), nothing at In-N-Out is ever frozen, everything is made fresh and can be customized, and the workers are paid higher than most, a combination that means they are consistently ranked as the best fast-food chain in America. I got a cheeseburger with Animal-style fries, meaning that they were topped with grilled onions, American cheese and special sauce. It was great to see that the management has finally wised up and created a French-fry container especially for Animal-style fries; eaten with a fork, as they must be, they were delicious and are making me hungry as I type this. However, having eaten at Island Prime and 25º in the previous two days, the cheeseburger just didn’t measure up, to either recent precedent or older memory. For the price, though – Island Prime’s burgers ran to $15 or so, and 25º were about $14 – my $6.50 meal at In-N-Out was, dollar-for-dollar, amazing value.
