For those of you who are knuts for the stuff, you can now have In-N-Out burgers shipped to you for $50. Eater has the story.

I ... I just don't get it.

I mean, I LOVE IN-N-OUT, but what's the point of having something that demands to be fresh shipped to you in a box?

Plus, there's the obvious disconnect that one of the things that makes IN-N-OUT, well IN-N-OUT and not like everything else is that the ingredients are always fresh and locally sourced and the hamburger patties are never frozen.

So this company will ship you frozen burgers from across the country ...

Damn, now I want IN-N-OUT for lunch.

DoubleDouble, grilled onions, no sauce.

Fries, extra done.

Vanilla milkshake.

According to Serious eats, Shake Shack edges out both In-N-Out and 5 Guys in a not-so-scientific survey for overall burger experience weighted mainly by their beef (Shake Shack uses Pat La Freida meats, which is currently the undisputed top beef maker in the East); regardless of what they think, it's a no brainer that one would like the freshest burger if given the choice.

That said, in my opinion if you're in the east, Shake Shack dominates in taste and quality, but 5 Guys is more accessible. I've never had an In-N-Out burger, so I can only go by word of mouth and believe that it would beat out 5 Guys, but it would be a toss-up with Shake Shack.

I never understood what all the fuss about In-n-Out is. It's a nice burger, but nothing spectacular. Anyway, you can always find a better burger at a non-chain restaurant....and have a beer with it.

One thing that creeps me out about In-N-Out is that they hide a reference to a bible passage on the bottom of their cups. It's inside the lip at the base of the cup. That is just creepy, and sneaky.
