Considering the war crime that are their fries, this doesn't surprise me in the least. Nor that they are actively courting sh*tty people as a demographic. The short and easy path has pretty much been their motto, which is to say all about promoting their short cut attitude as a style choice, and not just being cheap.

Which, is odd in a way, with their fries I mean. A soak and a par boil would reduce the water content and starch on their fries, it would result in fries that remain crispy, and it would increase the life of their fry oil which would be cheaper in the long run, and an improvement in quality. Then again, they court a sort of shallow hipster following, and surface and facade is pretty much their stomping grounds. Courting this demographic, and that is really what this statement is, is just another example of style over substance, which seems a governing principle for their brand.

So restaurants can just refuse to follow any laws, regulations or mandates they want?

Time to finally open my Carlos Mencia "Pants-Cooked" Burrito Hut!

the owners of a company that prints bible references on it's burger wrappers are hard right, evangelical, science deniers?

Cutting off your nose to spite someone else's face has never worked before, but by golly, they just might pull it off.

Years ago flew out to california for a job interview, had the opportunity to eat at an in and out after hearing about them for years.

It sucked.

Looks like we're now approaching the "Out" phase of "In-N-Out".

Makes you wonder what other government mandated health and sanitation policies that they don't follow.
 
2021-10-20 8:37:14 AM  
they don't want to enforce a vaccine mandate for health and safety?

how do they feel about health department rules about food storage and handling?
 
2021-10-20 8:37:22 AM  
Refusing to comply with the local Health Department more likely.

Same. The burgers were fine, but nothing special. The fries were terrible; possibly the worst fast-food French fries I've ever eaten.

My daughter loves In-N-Out fries, I suspect that it has to do with genetics from her mom.  But I love my daughter despite that fact.

I had them once when I visited a friend in California. I ordered a double-double "animal style" with "animal style" fries. It was an experience I will never forget, and probably never repeat. I say it's worth doing it once so you can cross it off your list.

Not as good as 5 guys, but they have a drive thru.

They're better than burger king and I'm sure the redhotchilipeppers sing about them so whatever.

Well if they refuse to protect the health of their customers I guess I won't be a customer.

Yay, freedum!

I don't want to be around unvaxxed people, but also, they are putting these people in a tough position.  It was only a few weeks ago that there was the story about the aholes in NYC who beat up a teenager and then accused the staff of being racist over vax cards.  Then BLM started protesting the restaurant

The burgers are good if you get grilled onions and you eat right away. You have a 5 minute window, so you can't take one home. Their fries taste like they figured out a way to make unflavored Pringles in fry shape.

Nah. This was settled as constitutional in the 19 farking 20s. So nah.

Not a happy ending for In-N-Out  is it?
 
2021-10-20 8:45:20 AM  
I'm on the East Coast so am unfamiliar with the general business practices of In N Out. Is this the company or a franchisee?

Strike that. They don't franchise. Screw 'em. There's so much better food all over California that I boycott In N Out by default. I've only had their food a few times when flying into LAX because it's cheap and marginally better than coach class airline food.
 
2021-10-20 8:45:57 AM  
2 ways to look at it.

America 2021 is either ok with forcing it's citizens to produce papers to go places

Or ok with places serving one class of people, not the other.  Segregation style.

Either way, we're boned

You do not have a constitutional right to spread your germs in public. Your rights end where they impose a greater burden on others. This is basic civics.

kdawg7736: They are not around me as I live in the East, are there burgers honestly that good?


They seem to be most popular with people who live in California, are from California, or wish they lived in California.  I've had them a couple times when visiting and, while it was a perfectly serviceable burger, I just didn't see reason for the fandom. I'd rather have something from Five Guys or a local one off burger place.  I'd probably put in the same category, just with a wider geographic distribution and larger number of locations, as a local chain from my area (Dick's Drive In) in that the locals love it but anyone visiting would wonder what the big deal is.

Welp, fark In-and-Out Burger. The food wasn't bad but I don't give money to assholes like this.
 
2021-10-20 8:49:36 AM  
As a Company, In-N-Out Burger strongly believes in the highest form of customer service and to us that means serving all Customers who visit us and making all Customers feel welcome. We refuse to become the vaccination police for any government. It is unreasonable, invasive, and unsafe to force our restaurant Associates to segregate Customers into those who may be served and those who may not, whether based on the documentation they carry, or any other reason.

I don't disagree that tasking fast food workers with security work is stupid and dangerous, but you have a drive-thru and can do pick up orders so you can avoid the situation entirely, still keep people working and still keep selling food.
 
2021-10-20 8:50:05 AM  
I wonder what other health codes they feel are too constraining for food service?

Please elaborate. Difficulty, vaccine mandates are much older than covid-19 and have been repeatedly upheld.

What do you know that the supreme court doesn't?

oh, so letting the virus spread in your store is making customers who don't want to be exposed to it feel welcome?

So you're also against the gov't mandates for the DTaP, MCV4, Polio, MMR, HEP B, and Varicella vaccines and have spoken out against them as well? Or just being a contrarian?

I've yet to have a pleasant meal from Whataburger. Every time I eat there I wind up feeling bleh and kind of grossed by what I just ate. At least In-and-Out has good burgers that don't sit like a brick in my gut.
