For non-tech stuff
Occasionally, this site does some non-tech items, this is one of them.
On February 14th, my wife and I finally made it to the new In-N-Out Burger location in Keizer, Oregon. Salem is a test market for fast food having one of the first Sonic Drive In's, in the Northwest, that I visited in the Summer of 2008 which was posted on this site back then.
No one has ever said anything bad about the place, especially Gordon Ramsey. There is a good reason why, this was the best burger I ever ate (Double Double Animal Style).
The french fries were cooked perfectly. The strawberry shake I had, had a better strawberry taste as well.
Everything is cooked fresh and it's perfect. Everyone that was working in there was very professional as well. I do like the palm trees and white decor that is a thowback to the 1950's with paper hats (similar to those I wore when working for McDonald's in the early 1980's).
While I support Dick's Drive In's in Seattle (there will be an article or page soon) and I did visit the new Kent store in Midway back in September (it was the first place I stopped at) In N Out is now added to the list as well. Like Dick's thier employment practices are similar (higher wages and benfits) and a professional staff.
There is a reason why we waited 45 minutes to get out order inside while cars are full in the drive through as well.
Like Dick's, I bought the t-shirt too. They are very artistic ones as well.
There well be a section soon for In N Out and Dick's on here and possibly Wendy's as well (I worked there part time for many years and have shares in the company).
