Do you have that favorite restaurant where you can just close your eyes and imagine taking that gratifying first bite?
Where any resemblance of that eatery’s scent leaves your stomach grumbling and yearning for more?
Are you hungry yet?
I know I am.
For me, that restaurant is the west coast born and raised chain In-N-Out Burger.
Never heard of In-N-Out burger?
If so, first my apologies for having never experienced the greatest burger on the planet. One reason why you may not have tried it before is that unfortunately they are only available in 5 states (California, Nevada, Arizona, Utah and Texas).
I say “unfortunately” because I currently reside in Illinois and most days of the year consist of me wallowing in my own self misery of not being able to enjoy a tasty Double-Double at my leisure.
Just in case you don’t know, the Double-Double is their version of McDonald’s Big Mac only 1,000 times better.
Scratch that. 1,000,000 times better. Yes, it’s that good.
Luckily, my mom retired and relocated to Las Vegas and bought a home approximately 7 miles from an In-N-Out Burger. As you can imagine, my first stop after leaving the airport is not my mom’s house or some silly casino. Oh no. It’s In-N-Out time!
