Actually, when I wrote the above of Carl's Jr, I completely forgot
In'n'Out.  This is possibly because In'n'Out is so good I don't think of
it as fast-food.

It's a California-only chain at this point.  Everything is made fresh
onsite from fresh local produce.  You can watch them make the fries by
hand from whole potatoes -- none of the usual crap of extruding powdered
instant potato mix through a die, they take whole potatoes and push them
through a set of crossed blades with a lever press.  The beef is
fresh-ground, the rolls are baked on the premises.

The secret menu is fun, too.  Two by four animal style, fries well done,
please.  :)
