Fresh-N-Fast Burgers

On Friday night, I noticed people were eating at Fresh-N-Fast Burgers, so I figured I’d stop by to grab a cheeseburger and fries before dinner. The restaurant has been getting a lot of attention recently because the design and menu is similar to In-N-Out. See exhibit A:


The colors and logo are kind of similar to In-N-Out, but the red, yellow, and white color scheme is also used in other fast food restaurants (ex: McDonald’s). Lou and I were pretty excited to try their burgers because we haven’t had a good burger in a while so we walked in and I started taking pictures while Lou went to order our cheeseburger. Their menu is also similar to In-N-Out. See exhibit B:

While I was snapping away, a woman approached me and told me that the restaurant wasn’t actually open yet (they were doing a test run for friends and family) but Lou had already ordered so it was too late to turn back. We ordered a cheeseburger and fries to share (I wanted to go to Xie Xie for dinner so this was an appetizer). Our meal:


Their burger patties are fresh (they don’t even own a fridge…just like In-N-Out), they cut their fries in the back of the restaurant (just like In-N-Out), and they have a special sauce that they put on all of their burgers (JUST LIKE IN-N-OUT). However, their burgers aren’t like In-N-Out taste-wise; they’re decent, but very greasy (I could barely take these photographs because my camera kept slipping out of my hands). The cheese on their cheeseburgers also wasn’t melted completely – it was slightly melted in the middle, but greasy around the edges. Their secret sauce was also squirted on the lettuce, not the bun, which annoyed me because the lettuce was way larger than the bun. The fries are VERY greasy and taste more soggy and oily than fresh and light and are definitely not worth ordering (they remind me of Five Guys’ fries). They’re still working out their kinks and I can see it being a good alternative to Shake Shack if you don’t want to wait in line in the wintertime.
