Game of Burgers: Fast Food Fiefdom, Final Round: TK Burger Versus In-n-Out!

Categories: Game of Burgers

Well...hello again! Last time we did this tournament, Dave had a showdown between G Burger and Umami Burger in the Burger Baron category, with the La Habra upstart beating the Los Angeles chain in a controversial upset.

That was on August 9. I was supposed to follow by matching up TK Burger versus In-n-Out in the Fast Food Fiefdom category. And then...and then...and then...

I dropped the burger. Here we are, over a month later, and I'm just about to announce the winner, even though I knew the results in early August.

What happened? A bunch of excuses. I went on vacation through mid-August, then had to catch up on work the following week. Then it turned into the week before Labor Day, which meant everyone had tuned out. Then it was the week of Labor Day, which meant people were adjusting back to the grind. And then...and then...and then...

Sorry folks. But you want a winner for this category...

And the winner is...

Love that TK!

TK Burger. Was never a contest. While I do like In-n-Out, it simply doesn't compare to the totality of the TK experience--its secret sauce, its potato bun, the luscious patty. I matched them up two years ago, and I gave the victory to TK then, and I'm giving it to TK again.

SO...behold our Final Four in our Game of Burgers!

"Tournament goes back on next Monday!"

Is this still going on or are you folks committed to channeling George RR Martin, delays and all?

The link for the first fast food round is pointing to the wrong story.  Can someone fix it?  I want to find out how Carls beat Rubys.

TK is absolutely better than In-n-Out, so at least that portion worked out for the better.

I hope this "Best of" pick is better than your choice for supposedly the best menudo in OC from El Camino Real.

Please don't eat at 25 Degrees. I had a horrible experience there. They have a RAT problem and don't even apologize to their patrons for it!

@GustavoArellano For my money, nothing beats the menudo at Tacos Jalisco in Orange.

@GustavoArellano I'll check it out, next time I'm crudo but it's definitely not El Camino Real.
