Guest #35, your order is ready.

Overall rating: 9.2/10

I'm on a roll!

Burger - I've really grown to love the extra lettuce. Overall this burger was very good but not amazing. No one thing stood out as being something fantastic taste wise, but every part of the burger was well above average and when put together made for a pretty delicious cheeseburger. Presentation was spot on in my opinion, nothing lopsided or falling out. Which is strange because I did end up with probably two full bites of everything except hamburger at the end. Texture was almost as perfect as can be. I honestly can't think of anything that was wrong with the texture so I'm going to have to give that part full marks. Taste wise, like I said everything was above average but nothing jumped out at me. At In-N-Out that still blows every other burger joint away though.

Taste - 1.8 (out of 2)
Texture - 2.0 (out of 2)
Presentation - .9 (out of 1)

Fries - I liked the fries quite a bit. There weren't as crispy as I would have liked but overall the texture was pretty good. And the taste was fairly standard and once I put the salt and pepper on the were pretty good. Much like the burger it wasn't perfect but it was well above average for In-N-Out.

Taste - 1.8 (out of 2)

Nothing really interesting. Was a warm day. I did eat the burger while it was still in the wrapper. I mean, I didn't eat the wrapper as well, but the extra lettuce has been fairly messy lately so I decided to not remove it completely. Worked out for the better. Fun fact: I resize my images to 29% of their original size. I think I've done a few that different %, but for the most part it's always 29%.

Burger - Once again extra lettuce. My order these days is now a Cheeseburger no onions, extra lettuce, mustard fried, no pickles. I'm going to stick with this for a while imagine, but I think from time to time I might have to take out a bit of lettuce. Not only does too much of it mask the other flavors but it can get messy pretty quick. Still, I really do like the extra lettuce. I can't give near perfect marks on taste though, due to the masking of the flavors with too much lettuce. The texture of this burger was pretty spot on. Nothing was too crunchy or soggy at all. Almost every bite was perfect. Although I did have a few extra bites of bun leftover at the end. Presentation wise the extra lettuce also makes it hard to judge, but I can't fault them for not being able to put that much lettuce on and make it perfect looking. I mean, it's like a salad between a two buns.

Taste - 1.65 (out of 2)
Texture - 1.9 (out of 2)
Presentation - .8 (out of 1)

Fries - Probably some of the worst fries I've ever had at In-N-Out, which is a shame. They were limp and flimsy, no crunch whatsoever. Not only that but despite putting salt on them they didn't have hardly any flavor. They weren't "gross", just really sub-par.

Taste - 1.25 (out of 2)
Texture - 1.0 (out of 2)

You want something interesting? Yeah, I can't do that today. Nothing noteworthy was seen or heard.

Burger - Extra lettuce is now standard as part of my order. And as usual mustard fried is there as well. The burger was really good, but extra lettuce does get a bit sloppy as the lettuce doesn't really have an anchor and falls out quite a bit. Nothing extra special to say about this burger other than I had a bit more than usual left over at the end. Just bun really and small bits of lettuce and tomato, assuming some cheese in there as well. But once I'm done with the meat I don't generally eat the rest as it has more of a burnt grilled cheese taste. I've always found that strange.

Taste - 1.8 (out of 2)
Texture - 1.75 (out of 2)

Fries - These were some of the best fries in quite a long time. I had intentions of trying well done fries, but as my wife was with me and we were sharing I decided to appease her and just get normal fries. Luckily for me they were actually quite a bit more done than they have been in the last few months. They ended up nice and crispy on the outside but still soft on the inside. And as always, salt and pepper had to be added.

Taste - 1.7 (out of 2)
Texture - 1.95 (out of 2)

Nothing exciting. Most interesting thing I saw were two cops and one was definitely tired as he was resting his head on the table. Well more like on his arm, but his arm was flat on the table.
