Tornado Burger's stellar burgers and fries are modeled on those of the famous In-N-Out Burger chain of California. The burgers are made from thin patties of never-been-frozen meat and served on buttered and toasted buns. The onions are sliced thin, and the lettuce is hand leafed. The French fries are made from fresh-cut potatoes. Shakes are made with real ice cream. This is one of the best fast food options around.
