Food Vs. Food: Wendy's Vs. In-N-Out

Here we are again. Don't ask me how we finally settled on Wendy's Vs. In-N-Out. It was a bloody battle between Jack In The Box, Carl's Jr, Sonic...there is no right way to compare crappy fast food!

The boys started with a double cheeseburger with the works from Wendy's and a "double double" from In-N-Out. Austin thought In-N-Out was a clear winner; husband thought the meat of the In-N-Out burger was mildly superior but everything else about the burger was on par with Wendy's. This insulted Austin greatly.

Winner: In-N-Out

Wendy's single cheeseburger and a cheeseburger from In-N-Out. Austin hated the Wendy's single while husband actually found it preferable to Wendy's double burger. Austin thought the In-N-Out single had way too much tomato and husband thought it was "meh".

Winner: Husband- Wendy's Austin- In-N-Out

Wendy's fries stomped In-N-Out. I did not sample any of the goods, however I could tell from appearance alone that In-N-Out's fries were going to lose. They looked like the freezer burned fries from high school that were cooked in not hot enough oil that you had to drown in salt, ketchup and ranch dressing to consume. Memories.

Winner: Wendy's

Wendy's famous Frosty and In-N-Out chocolate shake. Not exactly the same thing, we realize. They found the In-N-Out shake to be more chocolaty, but the ice cream consistency of the Frosty got high-ish marks.

Winner: Frosty (duh)

Here is my chicken Caesar salad. I have now had the pleasure of consuming chicken salads from McDonald's, Burger King and Wendy's. This one was alright, the lettuce tasted fresh, the chicken tasted the most like chicken (instead of compressed chicken parts formed into a patty and then chopped), but the dressing was flavorless.

So far, I'm going to have to give it to McDonald's, though that's not saying much.

Workout: 2 mile hike with husband and Austin in the hot ass burning California stupid sun. Yes, I got burnt. Yes, we were out for 33 minutes. I wanna move to Portland!

  1. Heh, In-N-Out fries are going to lose every time until you've eaten them about 10 times. The problem with them is that they are actual fresh-cut potatoes. They cannot compete with vacuum-formed lard-n-chemical flakes like Mickey D's. Dunnow about Wendy's.

    Also, if anyone wants another doubledouble anytime, for me the magic words are "Animal Style". Caramelized onions = Yum!
