I have been an In N Out fan for years, but based on the fact that Phyllis's Giant Burgers (PGB) wins the Pacific Sun award for best Marin Burger every year, I decided to go to San Rafael and give it a try.
Two burgers, two onion rings and two small drinks for $26! This was ridiculously overpriced. The burger was boring. It was fine, but nothing special. Big and greasy, with a stale bun, it was lacking in appeal. At In N out, it would cost half this amount and those burgers are addictive and tasty. The only reason to go to PNB: if you have to have onion rings. Although, they also, were nothing special. In N Out wins hands down.
