Business Insider is usually a pretty credible source, but we have to question this map of America’s favorite fast food restaurants.
Using data from Foursquare, they took the average visit per location and then divided it by locations in the state. The results are a bit questionable, though.
First red flag, as a Californian, was that Raising Cane’s was the Cali winner and not In-N-Out. Say what you want about In-N-Out — maybe it is overrated, maybe you feel there are better burgers out there — but its popularity is hard to dispute, especially in California.
How Raising Cane’s and its seven California locations beat out In-N-Out, is baffling. Instead, Utah and Texas won the honor of having In-N-Out stamped on the map.
It’s nice that those states have a couple In-N-Outs now, but Californians probably feel like this:
Even Texans are laughing at the fact that In-N-Out is representing them.

Business Insider has since taken down the tweet, because they were getting ravaged by the internet, but the story remains, and remains incorrect. Probably.
