Burger Express

Todd and I have been fans of In-N-Out Burger for many years.  But here in Idaho, there is not a single one to be found.
So when we heard there was some controversy around town about the new Burger Express being similar to In-n-Out Burger, we had to check it out.  The signs and color scheme were similar.  The menu was almost identical.  But all the employees were pretty adamant that Burger Express was nothing like In-n-Out.
Todd and I each ordered the double double, urrr, umm, I mean the Express Double, with grilled onions, fries, and a chocolate shake.
It has been a while, almost a year, since I have sunk my teeth into In-n-Out food so I will tread on this review very lightly.  The fries and shake were very similar . . . and very tasty.  The double cheeseburger, although I don't think it was close to In-n-Out's Double Double, was fresh and delicious.
If I were faced with a burger stop at McDonald's, Burger King, Wendy's, or the new Burger Express, I would pick Burger Express.  The food was good, really good.  And fresh.

We are lucky here in Arizona to have In n Out Burger...but Burger Express looks good as well. How are their fries?

Thank you for your recent post on my blog. We are so happy our son is in the MTC all safe and sound. He's going to have an amazing 2 years.

My mom and dad helped to run an in and out burger when we lived in Baker city Oregon. I absolutely loved their food. How are the ice cream cones.

They don't have ice cream cones at Burger Express, just shakes and root beer floats. We went with the shakes but I just might have to try the root beer float next time.

Good to hear from you Barbara. We went to In n Out last weekend when we in Utah to go to Lagoon. Todd said everything at In n Out was better than Burger Express, now that his memory was refreshed. He just might be In n Out's biggest fan.
