[music]. hey what's going on everybody for first . we feast i'm sean evans coming at you . from complex headquarters in beautiful . los angeles where we pulled out all the . stops for our buddy . comedian tom segura what do you think of . the kitchen setup here wow you guys went . out of your way someone just came in and . got their yogurt out of the fridge hope . they come back really really impressive . man thank you you know tom from his . podcast your mom's house as well as his . netflix stand-up special is completely. normal and mostly stories and good news . for comedy fans there's another one on . its way january 12th tom and i are . meeting up here in los angeles arguably . the fast food capital of the country to . settle the age-old debate which. restaurant reigns supreme shake shack . versus in it out you know it's in and . out bro throwing up the west coast and . tom before we dive into the patties i . have to say you're looking lean you're . looking mean how has your weight loss . competition with our buddy bert . kreischer worked out for you it's been . great man it's been a life-changing . event where we encouraged our own fans . to fat shame the other person and i . would say fat shaming is very effective . sometimes you do it alone you know you . look in the mirror you're like i'm a fat . piece of shit you know but when other . people are constantly telling you that . and you're welcoming it it's a it's a . reminder you go like i'm not gonna eat . like an asshole today you know i know . that you've lived all over the country . you've been in los angeles now for a few . years have you been converted to the . cult of in and out hundred percent man . there's something about in and out that . should be celebrated no matter where . you're from i mean you go you order . fries they're fuckin slice and potatoes . you want a burger they stab a cow in the . parking lot they pay over minimum wage . you have happier you know better . honestly better-looking employees i . think that they do that you going to . arby's it's like some guy with the. missing eyes bleeding out of his face . dude's face was like a torn softball . where do you stand on shake shack i've . had it's good but i i mean i'm i'm . bringing my bias to the tape . because it's honest it comes from a good . place i believe it is a superior product . in now but i am willing i haven't i . haven't dove as deep as we're going . today we're going very deep today i vow . to remain objective and to start things . out you can only begin in one place it's . the crinkle-cut versus the hand cut . let's bring out the fries alright so . here we are with two of the most iconic . fry orders in fast food you have . in-and-out animal style you have their . spread you have cheese you have onions . and then you have shake shack's cheese . fries it's a mix of american and cheddar . cheese on top of this when you go to . in-and-out do you order at animal style . er no i like i said i haven't been . frequenting the fries that much lately . i've been doing protein style trying to . avoid the carbs go but if i'm like going . deep if i'm like it goes do it right . you've got to go animal style . absolutely it's the authentic in-and-out. experience and it is it is the authentic . experience i'm up for trying the shake . shack was i've never happy let's dive in . alright let's do it advance do it not . bad not bad at all they're very ballgame . they're very carnival to me crinkle cut . fries at shake shack to me they're very. nostalgic what is that that goat cheese . sauce it's a mixture of american and . cheddar and it is heavy it's heavy lost. and i would love to be drunk eating this . but not to be outdone when it comes to . drunk eats the animal style whole french . fries at in-and-out tell me you come . home from the bar yeah it's 3 a. m. yeah . and this is plopped down in front of you . oh my god i would 100% eat myself sick . of it did you get four for me and just . keep eating them until everything came . back up when you have this animal style . concoction but you end up doing this . with every fork full having basically a . fast food smoothie it's the taste that . you get from their burger just with a . different ingredient involved so you're . essentially keeping that burger train . rolling you're just enjoying more of it. with potatoes here's the thing if it's a . standalone fry argument i could see you . having the preference . but if you're talking about the . concoctions that have been made here . this is mfinney . the symphony of everything together i . feel like in and out is is winning this . battle alright tom well we're not . starting off on all that contentious a . page on me same wavelength on this one . my nod on the fries in and out over the . cheese fries from shake shack . all right well los angeles is one of the . few places in the country where you can . get that shack burger and you can get . the in-and-out single so we're gonna . take full advantage here so the shack . burger is 100% all-natural angus beef . served on a martin's potato roll served . with lettuce tomato pickle and/or onion . when it comes to in-and-out you have . 100% pure american beef the shake shack . burger is very like soft you know like . one of those things that you can just . sort of let melt in your mouth the shake . shack feels like almost like hawaiian . bread right you know has that that . quality alright so same with you now to . me when you bite through i love that . smash burger style so 1950s it's such a. throwback you don't get that everywhere . it's just sort of a shake shack thing . where do you fall on it well i feel like . this tastes like how it feels like . you're eating almost like you're. cheating like you're not really eating a . full burger so like if i ate one of . these i'd be like do you have six more . and then here we are at in and out a . little bit fuller in the fact that you . have lettuce you have tomato you have . all this stuff coming out at you it's . fresh quality ingredients you know what . it really comes down to what does it . come down to it comes down to the spread . in other words that sauce if you like . the way that tastes you're you're in so . you're really i feel like your only case . against this if you're like i don't like . the way that sauce tastes then this is . not for you that's really it is the . shake shack hittin you a little bit . better than you thought it would you . have any expectations and they jump over . that bar yeah well our expectations were . is there was gonna be dog food so that's . that was kind of the way i was going . into it i was going in super pro west . coast defending the honor of my city and . the bird . that we all use as fuel to get through . life here being actually no it . definitely exceeds my expectations i . actually think it's a damn tasty burger . think patty think bun think toppings . give us a nod and let me know why okay i . mean i'll say this i am in all honesty a . big fan of this shake shack but i like. that texture i like the way it squeezes . s like i could eat no 15 in a setting . and and not really not really think . twice until i'm on my way to the . hospital. so i would i really enjoy that with this . in and out though i mean it's also like . it's it's it's familiar to me it's . consistent like this burger never lets . me down it's always that way the bread . is always good the beef is fresh the . produce is fresh and i i mean i live. here bro we try to do man but get me . hurt the reason why shake shack reign . supreme is because of this smash burger . i crave it i love it so to me i'm given . the nod to shake shack what about you . are you a single patty guy are you a . double patty guy where do you fall there. man . i love my nuts gonna go all day go big . or go home come on i'm fuckin around . with a single my sons to you leaders . single and here we are approaching the . finish line the last stop is the secret . menu and we have two very interesting . items on our plate for in and out you . have the flying dutchman which is just . beef patties like their burger buns with . a couple of slices of cheese in between . and then here at shake shack we have a . very interesting item it is their peanut . butter bacon burger which is another off . menu item but first things first do you . ever go to where no man's gone before . when you go to in and out do you ever. pull back the curtain on that secret . menu dude i love it i mean the secret . menu makes you feel like you're in the . club right so it's a very cool thing . we're like this jackass doesn't know. what to get let me order it's like when . you know it's like you know the chef at . a restaurant you're like is kevin can . you come out and you talk to them you . like fix us up a little nice right right . that does it for you yeah it's a toli of . flex and then i guess we should just . dive in we'll start with the flying . dutchman . let's do it in the kitchen where you . know the ingredients are just kind of . what might be there you don't really . know you don't go grocery shopping all . that often you're a little high you need . to make something on the fly and you're . like what do i got we got i want to make . a burger you might throw together some . monstrosity like this but it tastes. amazing today is amazing i'm doing . flying dutchman for sure it's on the new . the new drive home . i'm flying dutchman all the way is that . say though no dignity in this there's no . dignity but there is a satisfaction in . just it you know what it is for a purist . man it's just the meat and the cheese . sometimes you don't want to deal with . anything else cut out the middleman cut . them out all right and then this one i'm . curious i'm interested in this peanut . butter on a bacon burger are you a . little nervous are you excited are you . intrigued what's going through your head . i am wildly hesitant that's what i would . say i am i i think that this is this . could go either way right now i feel . like it's like someone say hey do you . want a salmon milkshake and you're like . all right sure . that's all the dice it's better than i . thought it would be but i'm never gonna . have to ask it ever again as long as i . live. all right well i have a feeling where . you're going on the secret menu tom . where are you going i'm all in in and . out this flying dutchman is on my new . life menu you've done it again i have . nothing but love for in and out west . coast for life putting this together in . my head tom i have to give it to in and . out humbled coming from new york to say. that but at least i can come back to la . and yeah you know get stabbed by tom . segura i would kill you if you voted the . other way right now and that'd be the . last video you ever made in and out it . has the crown until next time internet . sean evans this is first we feast and . then this is tom segura thanks for. having me you're welcome.
