Day 11 Gallup to Las Vegas

Burger Reviewed: Diablo Burger - In-N-Out

Despite driving 600+ miles, seeing a 50,000 year old meteor site, one of the modern wonders of the world and driving through the Vegas strip, I still managed a couple of burgers. 

We gave this a miss. 

Diablo Burger

Burger: The Blake
Price: $11.75

Gimmicky branding on the bun - The 'bun' is an English muffin - There is a low fat content in the patty. All of this screams wrong, but it's all so so right! It rips up the rule book on burgers and serves one of the tastiest burgers I've had.

The importance of knowing where your food comes from.

What a burger. The low fat content isn't a problem. Their local farms are breeding some high quality meat. It'd been cooked perfectly and still managed to be juicy. The roasted green chillies gives a heat, without being over powering as it's closely followed by the creamy chilli mayo to form a great partnership. Glorious helping of cheese melted over the chillies and patty. Even the bun, which isn't really a bun, was great with an outside you could tap, a soft inside and sturdy enough to absorb the mayo and juices.

Almost a carbon copy of Honest Burgers famous rosemary salted fries. Texture and seasoning spot on.

A tasty well crafted burger in another one of the towns we nearly drove through and what a mistake that would have ended up being. Not just for the burger but for Flagstaff, a picturesque town that we could have happily spent most of the honeymoon at. 

Overall Rating - 10/10

In the middle of nowhere in Arizona you have a 50,000 year old meteor site. A huge hole in the ground, but quite a few interesting stories on the tour detailing all the investigations and discoveries that have happened over the past hundred years with people expecting to find gold and ending up losing everything.

On to the Grand Canyon. One of the wonders of the world, but I'm going to sound really spoilt and uncultured here - It is what it is. Was one of those times where what you expect is what you get. 

It spans 277 miles, but you can only see what you can see and I wouldn't really recommend it unless you were going over it in a helicopter. Here are my pics of it though.

In-N-Out Burger

Burger: Double-Double, Animal Style
Price: $3.30
Location: Las Vegas
Website: www.in-n-out.com

I'd like to think when rating burgers previously I'd managed to remain impartial and not let hype or circumstance influence - there's no denying when In-N-Out came to London late last year I was overly excited and when the beef is compared side-by-side against other 10/10's is doesn't compare. That said, this is a fast food joint so maybe rating it as highly as I did previously is right. 

Again, this burger doesn't have as high a quality seen in other of my top ranked burgers, but for price and speed, this is simply faultless. It's one of the most exciting burgers in the world.

With an untold number of "secret" off menu possibilities, and if you order an Animal style Double-Double, medium rare, you'll go away happy. 

10/10 may be generous when compared with some of the other heavyweights, but there's just no way any true burger fan can find fault with their burgers or business model. The fast food benchmark.

Overall Rating 10/10
