I hate to rain on your parade, but In & Out is not the answer, unless you're looking for really cheap, tasteless (unless doctored up w/ gross sauce, pepper & salt)burgers. Best thing about I&O is it is clean, and the workers seem to really like working there. The burger, fries & shakes are worth exactly what they cost as orangeplow stated "$4.95" Give me Fatburger or Fuddruckers, any day. if you're in SoCal, even Polly's does a really decent burger (not fast food price, tho).
Tried it yesterday. Huntington Bch, Ca. Fail! Any burger joint that has no Milkshakes is NOT a burger joint! Meat was crumbly, bun fell apart. Fries above average, tho. Lousy, loud canned music, too. Fudds or Fatburger= excellent "chain" burgers.
CynD, From the wikpedia: A bagel (Yiddish: בייגל) is a bread product traditionally made of yeasted wheat dough in the form of a roughly hand-sized ring which is first boiled in water and then baked. The result is a dense, chewy, doughy interior with a browned and sometimes crisp exterior. Bagels are often topped with seeds baked onto the outer crust with the nything else is nomost traditional being poppy or sesame seeds. Some have salt sprinkled on the bagel.
Keywords are Dense/Chewy/Doughy.
If Katella's are too heavy, they must be the real deal! To each his/her own, I guess.
Have u tried Katella Deli? Yes, technically it's in the 562, but not far from Anehiem. Believe me, I'm from Chicago. These are the best in Long Beach, OC period. I always get a dozen sesame, and poppy. Slap 'em in the freezer, and they are as fresh as when u bought them. Do it:
