Fatburger Price Jump [moved from L.A. board]

scoot Sep 17, 2006 12:56 AM

Was shocked to order my typical Fat Burger with cheese on the char, fat fries, and small coke the other day. The total was $11 and some change! I understand prices always rise, but going from $6 or $7 to $11 overnight?

For that price, I could probably take three people to In N Out...

    Yes fatburger is good --- for the basic burger, but when you start to add cheese and chili on lets say a double you have 60 cents each or $1.20 extra for the cheese and 90 cents for a tiny dollop of chili for a total extra of $2.10 . That my friends is a total rip off.

      Bumping this up. I had the same experience the other day at the Sherman Oaks Fatburger. There is an In N Out only a few blocks away, so I don't know what they're thinking. While I much prefer Fatburger's fat fries, they are not worth the $11 price tag.

      Not surprisingly, even though it was just after noon, there were only two other customers in the restaurant.

        Same goes for Las Vegas. Two cheeseburgers and fries and two shakes = $23.00. ForGET it, I like fatburger, but not this much.

          I was JUST having this conversation with a friend the other day! I used to love fatburger over in-n-out but paying more than 10$ pp at fast food is ridiculous.
