I didn't look at the sodium. Only guessed because most fast food contains more than your daily equivalent of sodium.

For someone who is healthy. It may not be bad to go over your sodium sometimes, rarely. For someone with kidney disease. It is probably a very bad thing.

I don't eat much fast food. When I do. I can feel myself swelling and retaining water. It's not a good feeling.

I have lived in SoCal since 1957 and I DO NOT understand why people line up for these burgers. I really do not like them. Really, I like nothing about them. And "animal-style" means that there is extra sauce, cheesier and the onions are grilled rather than raw. I only eat one now and then because there is just blocks away as opposed to miles away for any other take-out. And the fries, which people also rave about, blah, the worst I've had. So when the hubby doesn't want to drive he goes to In&Out. I get a plain hamburger with just sauce and lettuce and a strawberry shake. The shakes are good and I get strawberry so I can share with the dog.

And no, these burgers are not healthy in the least, no wait, there is a slice of fresh tomato. But the lettuce and tomato are cold so the bun side next to these is cold too when you get it home (just a few blocks). Can you tell I don't like In&Out?

In and Out Burger is more famous today because it was mentioned in Eric Schlosser's book Fast Food Nation as being a quality burger.

Even though they are a fast food chain, the "hype" is that their burgers are less processed then a Big Mac from McDonalds or any of the other fast food burger
chains. Their buns are made in house. French Fries are fresh cut, not frozen. That IS an improvement over a chain like McDonalds or Burger King where their burgers are pre-fab.

When is the last time, anyone saw someone cook at burger at McDonalds or Burger King ?

How do you even know about the hype? lol In-N-Out is from California but we have it here in TX too but no one really seems to care about it. I had never even heard about it until one of my friends (who is from California) told me that he was very surprised not to see ridiculously long lines of cars outside of In-N-outs here...
I decided to give it a try but honestly, the burgers are just OK and the fries were kind of meh so yea, sooo not worth the calories.

Yes, all fast food should be considered as sodium bombs. Yuck!

Just like I thought. Sodium bombs.

Could you risk the dissapointment you would risk at your dialysis appointment?

And beef is high in purine I believe. So a double whammy to your kidneys.

There is probably nutrition information available online.

I doubt they could come anywhere near being considered healthy. It is a fast food burger after all.

My favorite burger is Johnny Rockets or Five Guys but I have no illusion of them being healthy.

They are good but they aren't in Minnesota. They are only out west.

I do agree with Danny though. They are still fast food and not necessarily a good choice in general. I think you can order their burgers "animal style" which uses lettuce instead of a bun. That saves calories but it's still used to consume a fast food burger patty.

It's definitely still fast food and unhealthy.
They're good fast food burgers I guess... but there's nothing special about them IMO.
