Cheap American food

I just had a quick bite at In N Out, a better-than-average hamburger chain.  I am amazed at how cheap the meal was.  A double beef patty cheeseburger was just $3.30 and a side of fries was $1.50.  The level of agricultural industrialization (and government subsidies) must be incredible.

I'll be going to the heart of corn, beef, pork, and soybean country this weekend.  I'll report back on what I find out.

In N Out "better-than-average"? me doth thinks credit isn't adequately given where credit is due!

I went to Santa Ana a couple of years ago and the guys at our office there dragged me to In-n-Out. I was sorely disappointed after the hype. I'd rather have a burger from Wendy's or Burger King all day every day.

Now... Scott's Restaurant... I really want to go there again. Totally different food and class, I know. But I can't not think about it if I'm thinking of food in California.

@m4ff3w: Scott's? Never heard of it. Do you remember what town it was in? May have to check it out.
