In N Out Overrated?

bakerboyz | Apr 29, 200812:20 PM     14

I understand that it's probably blasphemous to even dare pose the question regarding the "legendary" In-N-Out Burger, but am I the only one that thinks that they are overrated. I like their fries (better than their burgers) and clearly, the burgers are better than McD's, Burger King, and most, if not all, other chains, but IMHO it is not a great burger. I found on my most recent trip to CA, having eaten at In-N-Out twice, that the burgers were too small and flat to be anything but dry and fairly tasteless. I don't mean to be a contrarian but no one ever seems to criticize In-N-Out and for people who have never been, all they probably hear about is the "legendary" status, which seems to elevate In-N-Out to something akin to an "out of body" experience. What don't I get?
