” In and Out.. In and Out, that’s what a hamburgers alll about”… EVERY Californian knows this song. Ok maybe not BUT still… In and Out is a California Staple. Our gem. We give people dirty looks when they say that In and Out is just okay. We take In and Out very seriously.. The drive thru line at In and Out is proof to my statement.
1948, California’s first drive-thru hamburger spot was opened by Harry Synder in Baldwin Park, CA. Since then more than 281 locations are now available in California, Nevada, Utah and most recently Texas. In and Out burgers are the best. Nothing makes me more happy than to order a #2 Cheeseburger with onions, fries and a chocolate shake.. When I’m feeling really fat I order a #1 Double Double with onions, fries and a chocolate shake.
When I’m feeling gluttonous I turn to the Hidden Menu and I go FULL OUT ANIMAL STYLE!!! No, I’m not being x-rated. Animal Style is two slices of melted cheese, the in and out sauce and grilled onions. You can get both your fries and burger animal style.
Whats the Hidden Menu you may be wondering? Well when you go to In and Out your going to see your basic menu that consists of a #1, #2, #3.. double-double, cheeseburger, or hamburger.
There are items you can get from In and Out that are not on the menu. In and Out provides a grilled cheese for those who do not eat meat. Their grilled cheese is very good.
Looking to cut out carbs?? No problem. Order a protein burger: Lettuce wrapped around your meat, cheese and what ever other condiments you may want.
Don’t want cheese on your protein burger. That’s fine also.
Feeling up to a challenge.. Get the 4×4. 2 buns, 4 patties and 4 slices of cheese.
Don’t want cheese, bun, veggies or condiments? Order the Flying Dutchman: 2 meat patties and 2 cheese slices.. that’s it.
Theres even a rumor that you can get a 20×20.. Even though I found this picture online, I don’t think you can do this at every location.
In and Out fries by themselves are just okay but the great thing about them is that they are gluten-free!! I like them best Animal style or just with melted cheese on them. Plain they aren’t exciting.
In my opinion, In and Out have the best chocolate shakes ever. Perfectly made. Just typing this post is making me crave In and Out. I have it once every two months. Luckily its only 8:41 a.m. and In and Out is not open right now or I would have it for breakfast? If you’re an avid In and Out consumer, what’s your favorite combination??
