Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner are both vocal fans of the West Coast burger chain In-N-Out.
I tried each of the reality stars' orders to see which one was tastier and a better value.
I much preferred Kylie's burger with grilled onions and crispy fries over Kim's order.
In-N-Out is a fast-food burger spot loved by many celebrities, including Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner.
Kim Kardashian loves the burger chain so much that on her 40th birthday, she received an In-N-Out Burger cake from a friend, while Kylie Jenner has spoken about In-N-Out being one of her biggest cravings during her first pregnancy.
"When I was pregnant, I had to eat In-N-Out at least once a week, it was a problem," Jenner told Harper's Bazaar in 2020.
I decided to taste test Kim Kardashian's and Kylie Jenner's In-N-Out orders to determine which was the better value and the tastiest.
Kim Kardashian's go-to order at In-N-Out is a plain cheeseburger, cheese fries, and a vanilla shake.
I've tried Kim Kardashian's McDonald's order in the past and thought it was way too large for one person to enjoy and actually eat. However, I thought this was a more realistic order for a single person.
My meal came to $9.80, not including tax. I thought this was a fair price for the amount of food I received, especially compared to similar meals I've ordered from other chains.
The plain cheeseburger comes with one beef patty and a slice of American cheese.
The bun was toasted and the melted cheese covered the entirety of the crispy beef. The burger costs $3.15 on its own.
I thought this was slightly on the expensive side considering it didn't come with any toppings. However, you can add toppings like onions, pickles, and special sauce free of charge. Kim apparently just likes to order her burger plain.
I found the burger to be really underwhelming.
I thought the ingredients tasted fresh and higher quality than some other simple burgers I've tried from other chains, but I was really yearning for more flavor. This would have easily been accomplished with some added condiments, pickles, or onions. In my opinion, In-N-Out has plenty of burger options that are more exciting than this choice.
Opening the box to the cheese fries, I was also slightly disappointed.
I'm well aware of the fact that every time you go to a restaurant — fast food, or otherwise — you may get a different result. However, I was nevertheless disappointed that the cheese on my cheese fries appeared under-melted.
The cheese fries cost me $4.10, compared to $2 for a regular fry.
The cheese clung to the top layer of fries.
Since the cheese was under-melted, they were easier to eat with my fingers. However, I really wished the cheese had been slightly gooier.
The cheese itself was tasty — it was a tangy, classic American cheese. However, most of the fries didn't even get a drop of cheese on them.
While I did enjoy the cheese, I would have much preferred the cheese to actually cover the fries. Again, this can probably be chalked up to an error on the day I visited In-N-Out.
Hopefully, when other guests or Kim Kardashian herself go to In-N-Out, the cheese fries are slightly more appetizing.
The vanilla shake was perfectly creamy without being too rich.
It paired well with the meal, although I didn't end up finishing it. Regardless, I thought it was a good deal at just $2.55, excluding tax.
Kylie Jenner's order at In-N-Out is more similar to something I would personally order.
According to an interview Jenner did with Harper's Bazaar in 2020, she orders a Double-Double with just special sauce and grilled onions, well-done fries, and a Coke. The meal came to $8.35, excluding tax, which made it less expensive than Kim Kardashian's order.
She orders her burger either protein style, which means the burger comes between two lettuce buns, or regular. I opted to order the burger with regular buns.
The burger immediately looked and smelled more appetizing than Kim's choice.
Most Double-Double burgers come with two patties, lettuce, tomato, onions, and spread. However, Jenner decides to remove the lettuce and tomato, and she requests grilled onions instead. The burger on its own cost $4.50.
Biting in, I already preferred Kylie Jenner's order.
The grilled onions and special sauce added a lot of flavor to the burger, and I really liked how the two beef patties were perfectly coated in cheese.
The burger was definitely worth the price. For only a dollar and change more than the plain cheeseburger, I got a larger burger and tons more flavor.
Kylie Jenner also orders her fries "well done."
One complaint I personally have with In-N-Out fries is that they're a touch bland and the texture is slightly odd. I was interested to see if getting the fries extra crispy would make me like them more.
The fries cost me $2, meaning there was no extra charge for asking them to stay in the fryer a little longer.
I enjoyed the crispy fries more than I expected.
They were well-salted and the extra time in the fryer definitely gave them a better texture. Overall, I was impressed.
I'm personally a fan of Diet Coke over Coke, but I thought the soft drink paired well with the meal.
The drink wasn't too heavy and allowed the other items to shine through.
Overall, I had to give the win to Kylie Jenner's filling, delicious, and cheaper meal.
I thought each element, from the perfectly crispy fries to the larger, more flavorful burger, beat Kim Kardashian's meal. Not only did I enjoy the flavors of Kylie's meal more than Kim's, but it was also cheaper.
As much as I enjoyed the vanilla shake, potentially more than the soft drink, I couldn't get past the slightly under-melted cheese fries and the burger, which was too plain for my personal taste. However, I'd be curious to order the meal again to see if the cheese would be more melted and I'd potentially add some toppings to the cheeseburger.
