SoCal Burgers


I have a copycat recipe for In and Out Burgers that I make sometimes.

I've never had a Tommy's and I've lived here for over 50 years. Will have to search for one here in the OC. I think they are mostly in the Los Angeles area.

yeah, but an occasional outpost in the neighboring states doesn't help so much when you live on the eastern seaboard. maybe it's just hold-over peevishness because sonic doesn't have any stores in MD either. or maybe it's just the universe being helpful, since other than those, i just have no interest at all in fast food.

oh, but those in & out fries? they rule. i *love* that they leave peels on those 'taters, giving it an actual potato-y taste instead of just the usual flavor of whatever oil the fries are cooked in.

I don't know where you get your In-N-Out fries, but where I get mine, they peel them before cutting them.

There are 7 locations in greater Las Vegas, 1 in Henderson, and 1 in Laughlin. So, next time you go there to dump a couple of paychecks, stop by an In-N-Out first.

Fries

They don't peel their potatoes in SoCal. I like their fries.

I never heard of Tommy's so they must not have made it to San Diego County before I left 11 years ago. I do miss In 'n Out though. And the guacamole burgers at the Boll Weevil were fantastic!

Well, I have visited In-N-Out many times in San Francisco, Atascadero, Santa Maria, Santa Barbara, Ventura, Oxnard, Camarillo, Newbury Park, and Woodland Hills, and I have watched them press naked potatoes through the cutter at all of those locations. They're so crowded at all hours of the day and night (except the Atascadero store for some reason), that I have had plenty of time to watch the french fry guys do their thing! Now, I admit that they don't do a really great job of peeling the potatoes (I think they use a machine), but they ARE peeled.

Tommy's Original is strictly a Los Angeles and surrounding bedroom communities restaurant. Except, of course, they JUST HAD to open one in Las Vegas. Anything that is unique to any particular area, such as Tommy's Original chili burgers, In-N-Out's double double, or even the Western New York Beef on Weck (that's roast beef on kimmelweck) has to be reproduced in Las Vegas so that anyone from that area that now lives in Vegas can feel a little less homesick. I heard they even have surfboard shops there

oh I knew that was a Tommyburger! Those are outta this world!

Yep - in n out - there's one we walk to now and then. I LOVE their fries and of course, their perfect chocolate shake.

PS - Caine, there isn't one in Santa Barbara. I think you're remembering the one in Goleta.
