Checkers (Rallys up north) seems to be getting smaller on their burgers.

I'll stick with Five Guys Burgers.

Yummmm, the way a burger should be.

I love their fries though, I go to Biff Burger (classic car/burger joint) for the burgers and 5 guys for the fries. Now if I can just find a good shake.

In and Out fries are disgusting... limp and greasy. I know they think they are cool doing the whole fresh fries thing, but anyone who knows anything about fries knows they are better parfried, then frozen, then fried. I will go to an In and Out for a burger, then head somewhere else for fries.

I don't get the In n' Out mystique. The burgers are ok, nothing special. But the drive thru is always way backed up.

I almost never eat fries, so I can't comment on that one..they just take up valuable meat space.

Double-Double Animal Style is glorious...for a $4 fast food burger. I mean you're not going to like a Red Robin or something where you're sitting down and getting a gourmet-style burger. The only thing that would make In'N'Out better is if they added bacon as an option.

/end rant. Just wanted to share that with you.
That and their $1 menu is now a $1.25 menu. Though two Churros for a buck-fifty. MMMM....Churro

If they had bacon I'd already have a bypass.

All this talk about this type of food is making me look at the calories in the meals I would get at each place. The famous star w/ cheese and med. fries (a #1) a Jr has about 1900 calories in it.

I love Chilies, the boneless buffalo wings and a bacon burger every time. That's about 2000 calories total right there without the fries. I don't even drink soda anymore, but saving the 200 calories isn't helping much when I'm downing almost a days worth of calories in a single meal.

Cereal boxes are shrinking, sour cream containers hold less... even ice cream. Lots of premium ice creams are not half gallons anymore... they are now 1.5 pints.

The raw cost of food has skyrocketed. These companies aren't going to give the food away, so they will find ways to still give you most of what you want while still turning enough profit to stay in business. With cost of goods going up more than 40% in the past year or two, they are fighting just to stay alive.
I must disagree my hookers ho seems to get bigger with every visit and she is maintaing the same price.
