I hope it's not supposed to be a chili size, because a chili size is open-faced. Kawabunga, dude!

That looks like a salsbury steak on top of a couple of thick slices of Spam or perhaps tomato.

And that's just for the single patty. I usually get the double and there's also a triple as well.

If you really want to feel sick when you wake up, eat a Tommy's burger at 3am after a night of drinking.

Another one that everyone in Socal knows. Can you say, "3 x 3?" I once saw someone eating a 5 x 5. Holy ****!

geesh, I sooooooooo knew that, dang it, didn't see the thread soon enough, I would have won.
DH and I just passed one Friday about 4 AM on the way to the Flyaway bus station. I asked my husband if he ever goes there anymore and he said very seldom, they make his bathroom experience, too 'confusing' to bear

Wow... I've lived in SoCal for 21 years and never heard of this place. There's one within a few miles of my office, too, and I've been there for almost 6 years.

It's not. They have In-N-Out in Nevada and Arizona also. Love their burgers. Too bad the fries taste like a No. 2 pencil.
