In-n-Out is good but if you want a REAL burger in Southern Cali you need to pay a visit to Tommy's!

As I'm sure you've figured out, McD's Big Mac sauce is their own Thousand Island dressing (I think it's Kraft but I'm not 100%). If you ever get a hankering for some on just a burger, you can buy their salad dressing packets ($.25 I think) and squeeze it on. My brother in law's family owns several so he gave us the scoop as a way to impress us when he and my sis were first dating. Very cute of him .

Not many fast food joints in our neck of the woods use "secret sauce" either (McD's is the only one I can think of). When we were in Oregon, the Wendy's would put sauce on their double stackers but they don't here - odd.

Steak'n Shake has good fresh burgers...I've watched the cooks press the balls of meat out into patties on the grill. You can really taste the difference...they taste like meat instead of cardboard. It's also one of the few places I can get relish on my hamburger.
They also have real hand-dipped milkshakes.
We get by with a little help from our friends

I'm glad to get a little bit of info and some pics. I post at another forum, totally cooking unrelated but they do have a "food" subforum. Many of the locals were bragging on the In-N-Out Burger, but I'd never heard of em.

Wish we had one, I'm all about some burgers.

Actually Big Mac sauce is not close to 1000 Island, it just looks like it.
Its a combo of french dressing, mayo, salt, sugar, vinegar, onion, and sweet relish, etc. Heres the recipe:

1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons French dressing
4 teaspoons sweet pickle relish
1 tablespoon finely minced white onions
1 teaspoon white vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt

If you compare the 2 like I did, Big Mac sauce is much sweeter.
