There has been a TON of buzz about In-N-Out and it seems like it could open any day now. The thing is, the people of the Treasure Valley aren't strangers to what a good burger is.

Boise = Burger Capital of the World?

New York is known for their pizza, Maine is known for their lobster... everyone knows about potatoes and Idaho, but is Boise also the burger capital of the world?

Not so fast! And, that's not to say that Boise isn't close to the top already because we all know it is. If you don't believe us, just look around at the amazing local spots we have ranging from Burger Belly to Bad Boy Burgers, heck, we'll even throw the "newer" Sid's Garage in there.

And if it was up to us, we'd go with local every time... but we're human. Sometimes, you just want that classic American fast-food experience but don't want to go with McDonald's or Burger King... and that's okay! This is America after all.

In-N-Out vs. Whataburger would be good for everyone

We came up with six different ways Whataburger would elevate Boise to "Burger Capital of the World" and one of those reasons is simple: competition.

When it comes to consumers, people love (or won't admit they do) to debate as to which product is superior. We see it all the time with Apple and Android users.

We feel like In-N-Out and Whataburger could be that next great burger rivalry that would only serve to motivate each respective business to put out their best.

And that's good for everyone, right?
