      Five Guys Beats In-N-Out as Most Popular Burger Chain

      http://fortune.com/2017/05/17/five-g...t-best-burger/

      In the interest of full disclosure, I don't care so much about the story as I do about the opportunity for low brow puns.

      From the article: "Restaurants continue to adapt to the millennial lifestyle"

      WTF does this even mean?

      No idea. I didn't actually read the article.

      I do enjoy a lunch at 5guys and not being hungry​ again for days while I feel death clawing at my aortic valve, but a double double animal style is preferred.

      Well considering that 5 guys exist in FL. and in-n-out doesn't, not surprised. Maybe they should expand to the 3rd most populous state, maybe they have but im not checking.

      Not to mention that In N Out tends to expand very slowly.

      It was a total shock to everyone when In N Out set up shop here in Texas in 2011, especially when prior its expansion to Utah was such a huge deal given the strict distance radius they adhered to from its Baldwin Park warehouse.

      No In-n-Out in Maryland as far as I know; but I do love a Five Guys burger now and then.

      And you won't see InO on the east coast for a long time, if not ever.


      But IMHO, InO > Five Guys

      Fatburger > InO

      But FG is good too. Those cajun fries!

      Never had In-n-Out though since they aren't up here in Wa. Five Guys is pretty solid though.

      I still need to check out Burger 21 out here, been told they are good. Plus having two free L2 chargers in the parking lot is a big plus.

      I did. Their burgers are pretty good, so I can't knock 'em.

      Not a fan of their fries personally, which is where In N Out has the upper hand.

      That being said, most overrated burger joint will always be Whataburger. I dunno why people here have such an attachment to mediocre food from them.

      They just closed like the only East coast Fatburger (that happened to be in a random shopping center by my work) a few months ago.

      Never been to an In-and-Out.

      Like me some 5 Guys fries with a little Cajun spice on them.

      Everyone gets the same thing. None of this "order it your way" BS like at McDs or BK.

      While I'm no Californian, I think someone could chime in here on the "adapting" InO has done over the years.

      The only reason why 5G beat InO is because 5G is everywhere. Hopefully InO doesn't take the bait and over-expand, which would dilute the brand and possibly destroy the company.

      I used to be indecisive, but now I'm just not sure.

      Had no idea they were even on this coast.

      Really? Fatburger has international locations, so wouldn't be out of the ordinary to have locations throughout the U.S. prior to expanding internationally.

      Not surprising since Five Guys is everywhere (even near me in rural New England) and In-N-Out is very localized out west. Nearest In-N-Out to me is in Texas or Oklahoma

      I don't eat much of that stuff anymore but Five Guys has become our go-to quick burger joint.

      Pack the Explorer up; road trip to Medford, OR. You can make a nice loop out of it if you come back through Bend and Mt. Hood.

      Drive to Medford Saturday, eat at InO, stay at a local cheap hotel. Get up Sunday, head over to Crater Lake, take pics, then head north, back home.

      It's 18hrs/RT from my location, 15hrs/RT from Olympia. You could even do it in one day.

      I prefer Shake Shack burgers more than In-N-Out nowadays.

      Exactly. Spelling, grammar, and punctuation matter.

      Lot's of companies do this. Set up shop in several unique, international locations. But stateside expansion seems to crawl a bit slower.

      I did know there was an InO in Medford. Should've stopped there last time we were at Crater a couple of years ago
