It's part of the California experience, I bring all my visitors here and they all love it, meat lovers as well as vegetarians . There's always a line but it's worth it. You can't miss it with the bold yellow and red colors. There are multiple locations throughout California. You won't have to think much due to their short listed menu and you can ask for things to be made "animal style" for a little more kick. They have great shakes and if you can't decide between the strawberry, chocolate and vanilla, you can get a mixture of all theree.
Favorite Dish: Since I dont' eat beef- I was skeptical at first, but now I get In-N-Out cravings-- Just order the Animal Style Grilled Cheese (not on the menu). It's simple- just a bun, tomatoes, pickles, cheese (you may have to ask for it) grilled onions, and their sauce, but it's yummmmy. You can also get the animal style fries (fries with cheese and onions on it). It's a LA staple, don't leave without trying it.
A very famous Californian fast food restaurant the In-n-Out Burger markets itself as a fast food restaurant that offers fresh ingredients. For example they like to point out that the french fries are from freshly cut potatoes and the burgers are cooked only after you order.
Another particularly special fact about In-n-Out is that they have a few items that are not available on their menu. For example the 'Animal' style burger and fries, in which the burger is cooked with mustard and grilled onion while the fries is fried also with onions and cheese. People who are on low-carb diet can also order 'Protein' in which the bun is removed from the order.
Overall a good fast-food chain; but it remains what it is: fast food = unhealthy :p
Yes, it is a drive-thru, yes it has a very limited menu. I grew up in Pasadena where one of the oldest drive-thru's still exist. Yet, here I am.....2,711 miles away in New England and man, when they say 'that's what a hamburger is all about', they're not kidding. Fresh made, fresh lettuce, that sauce, watching them make it happen for YOU. And there has to be a secret with that paper its folded in. They know you're in your car and they're making sure it stays clean while you devour simply the best hamburger in the universe. Go ahead, order your kobe burgers, I'm happy with my simple portal to food heaven. Every time I visit the motherland I go first to In-n-Out, then to family. Carry one on the plane and even the pilots will scream mutiny. If it is your first time, don't go animal. Go simple, then sally forth.
If you're within close distance, go get one and burp east for me.......
OH YEAH, always ask for a bumper sticker!
Favorite Dish: cheeseburger, no onions, extra cheese if you've got a minute. thanks.
*that toasted bun*
A local Los Angeles favorite, with a menu that is small, but offers real beef patties with tomato, lettuce and sautéed onions served on hot baked buns and fresh cut fries. You can’t really get more real than that. This company is a family business and has outlets all around LA. Having the choice between In n Out vs Macdonald’s, I would definitely choose In n Out. I went recently at 9:30 pm on a Thursday night and it was packed, but it was worth the wait for a table.
Favorite Dish: The burgers beat Mac Donald's any day. Fresh and no added junk.
For fast food: In n Out Burger
Favorite Dish: The whole menu consists of 3 different burgers, fries, shakes and soft drinks. Not much but they've got this stuff down.
