In 'N Out - Now That's a Great Fast Food Burger

Rating:  8/10.

Location:  7009 Sunset Blvd.  Los Angeles, CA 90028.  Various locations throughout Los Angeles.  Have tried them all over the city and they're all consistently good.

Eatery Type:  Fast food.
Vibe/Atmosphere:  It's a fast food joint.  Don't expect anything.  Their design concept is plastic white, yellow, and red.
Ease of Seating:  It's always busy, but with seating inside and out, you can often get a table.
Service:  Drive-through is a well-oiled machine, with a 'car hop' type person walking to your car to take your order when lines are long.
Food:  In my opinion, the best fast food burger in L.A.  One or two beef patties and one or two slices of American cheese, pickles, ketchup, and some sort of proprietary sauce that's similar to Thousand Island dressing.  Always consistent, never greasy.  Order it "animal style" with grilled onions.  Delish.  If calories are not your concern, try their real ice cream shakes.  The unsweetened iced tea and fresh made fries are good too.
Value:  You can't get better than this, at less than $5.  And the fact that they're only in California makes them even more special.
Parking:  Free.  Lots are always insane, but if you go through the drive-through, it's pretty orderly.

Conclusion:  If there's a better fast food burger out there (that's not 1500 calories and costs a bunch) I'd like to know about it.
