Sign just went up for the 5 guys on fig by USC. I'd say 5 guys is an adequate substitute for those that don't have an in-n-out near them. If in-n-out is a 10 then 5 guys is a 7.75. Fuddruckers closed in Pasadena many years ago. The staff was fighting the flies as they were preparing my order on our last visit.
2 oz blended whiskey
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 tsp powdered sugar
1/2 slice lemon
Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.
I remember when Fuddruckers first opened here and when you walked in they had all the meat hanging behind these large windows for everyone to see like an old butcher shop. That's a no no here now anyway.... cr****
Timestretch, I don't know you, but what do you think of the burger at Blueberry Hill and Seamus McDaniel's? Carl's Drive-in?
Blueberry Hill isn't close to my favorite, but you can get a great burger there with soft-spread cheddar for around $5. It's a great bargain. It's probably the best burger for the price. Seamus is over-rated. It's a frozen patty that breaks apart in clumps when you eat it. I do know people that love Seamus.
Carl's isn't comparable to the rest because it's a thin greasy diner burger. It's good if you want that style of burger and they have the original IBC root beer on cask, but to me there's a clear distinction between the two styles of hamburger and I don't compare them. In n Out and all the fast food joints like 5 Guys would be in this category for me. My favorite thin style hamburgers are Blimpy Burger in Ann Arbor and Dirty Martins in Austin.
