There’s a good reason why this West Coast chain is one of America’s favorite burger spots. According to The Kitchn, In-N-Out requires stores to be within a certain distance of a distribution center so that the burger chain can keep a close eye on its production chain. This helps In-N-Out serve up quality, fresh meat burgers.

TIP: If you ever get the chance to visit this eatery, try the Double-Double. According to INSIDER, a professional chef once said that it’s one of the best fast-food burgers ever because of its freshness and signature sauce.

2. Shake Shack

It may be hard to believe that one of the most popular burger chains in America started out as a hot dog stand, but it’s true. Shake Shack opened as a hot dog cart in Manhattan in 2001 to support the Madison Square Park Conservancy’s first art installation. The cart was such a success that Shake Shack ended up becoming a permanent kiosk in Madison Square Park in 2004. It was then that they began serving burgers, in addition to other items such as frozen custard, beer, wine, and shakes, of course. And, yes, they still serve hot dogs.
