Last week, Five Guys caused quite a stir when the Harris Poll ranked it ahead of In-N-Out to give it the title of America’s top burger brand. While Five Guys is a more nationally recognized brand, the West Coast was in an uproar over its beloved burger chain not taking the top spot.
To do that, Foodbeast Editor-In-Chief Elie Ayrouth sat down with BroBible co-founder Brandon Wenerd to chow down on meals from both In-N-Out and Five Guys while discussing both chains on a special episode of Foodbeast’s podcast, The Katchup, and all on Facebook Live. Wenerd is an East Coast transplant that grew up with Five Guys but also loves In-N-Out burgers, so he’s got some legit opinions and memories from both burger chains.
A poll was also put up on the Facebook Live video for viewers to vote for their pick of the superior burger chain. Between the poll and discussions of everything from Animal-style Double Doubles, bags of Cajun-style fries, and shakes, we eventually came to a final decision.
Who’s got the better burger? Do Five Guys’ Fries trump In-N-Out’s? These tough calls were made throughout the podcast, so you’ll have to listen to hear our final word on whether Five Guys is truly superior to In-N-Out or not.
