City Editor Jordan here — and here it is, y’all. The end result of my journey to find my forever burger in Sacramento. I’ve been on two one-on-one dates, made strong connections, and even spent an afternoon in the fantasy suites with my incredible lineup of local burgers, all trying to win my heart.
I’ve trusted this process and we’ve finally reached the end of the road. I want to take a moment to thank my girlfriend, Leah, for asking me to watch “Bachelor in Paradise” and kicking off this crazy idea, my friends and family who have supported me as I gained the clarity I needed, and all of you who have read along.
Without further ado, our final rose goes to:
Whitey’s Jolly Kone 🌹
The Whitey’s Special(pictured above) includes everything that I think is great about In-N-Out’s Double-Double (which I’ve long held as the gold standard for my burgers), but goes a step further by adding pickles and bacon. Combine that with the fact that it costs less than $6 (making it cheaper than In-N-Out as well), and you’ve got the perfect blend of taste and price to keep me coming back for the rest of my life.
