Fooch decided to open Pandora’s box and ask all of you about burgers so naturally his minion will follow along. Being from Idaho, I have a different perspective of burger. Mostly that I can make a good burger, and know what meat I need, but I can do it with any meat.
But if we’re talking someone else’s burger, well that’s where it gets hard. Here in Seattle, where I currently reside, we still don’t have an In-N-Out. We have a Caliburger though, which is supposed to be the answer to In-N-Out.
I’ve tried Caliburger several times and alI found was a crunchy bun with a typical meat patty. I can get the same burger from Dick’s for half the price.
So what is Dick’s? Well out here in Seattle, Dick’s is a landmark. You can get typical grease-burgers and tasty fries and fill yourself up for about $13. It’s not great, but if I have a choice between Caliburger and Dick’s, I’ll choose the latter every time.
So what about In-N-Out? Well I have had it. I was in Salt Lake City, Utah taking my then-14 year old sister to a One Direction concert (don’t even ask) and demanded we stop when I saw one on the side of the road. I got several items off the menu to fulfill my fantasy of In-N-Out goodness...and it was “meh”. I don’t hate the burger, but after years of everyone telling me how amazing it was, I just saw an above-average grease burger.
In Seattle, I’d have to say the current burger champion is Uneeda Burger in Freemont, followed closely by Blue Moon. But if you’re in Boise, hit up Judd’s Burgers. That was on an episode of Man vs. Food and it is by FAR the best burger I’ve ever had. And being from Idaho, I know my red meat.
Ok, enough about burgers. I have some 49ers links:
