This is the poll etexas should have made.
Best Burger is the Hardee's ThickBurger.
Hardee's was left off of the list.
Let me also agree. The hamburgers and crunchy buns at In-N-Out are very good- the best on the list above. I was also impressed how they confirmed your order three times and seem to get it right 99% of the time too!In-N-Out is the best!
You out of staters don't know what you are missing. Most California ex-pats I know insist on being immediately conveyed to the nearest In-N-Out upon returning to California. My four grown children always want to stop at the Sepulveda In-N-Out as soon as we leave LAX (it is the nearest outlet to the airport).
The menu is simple. They only serve hamburgers, cheeseburgers, double-doubles, french fries, and beverages. But, oh my! Talk about customization. Most native Californians recommend trying your burger "animal style."
The original owners were outspoken Christians and printed Bible verses on the bottom of the packaging.
