Before we left for Los Angeles, Dane told me that the only concrete thing he wanted to do was go to In-N-Out Burger. I didn’t object one bit — it’s one of those “When in Rome” type of scenarios and since neither of us had ever been, we wanted to make the most of it! It turns out, we didn’t get a chance to go until right before our flight, which meant 4 full days of dreaming up our order. It turns out, the delayed indulgence bought us a little bit of insight in the form of the In-N-Out Secret Menu. We were sitting at brunch in DTLA discussing our plans when our waitress said “YOU HAVE TO KNOW ABOUT THE SECRET IN-N-OUT BURGER MENU!”
|Full disclosure: It was my first time eating meat in two months! I couldn’t believe it had been that long and I definitely felt the body shock afterward. But! It was quite good.|
We were both kind of like…In-N-Out Secret Menu? What are you talking about? Does In-N-Out not post their menu like a normal burger joint? I had all sorts of questions…clearly!
She proceeded to tell us all about the different types of combinations we could order. I was most intrigued about the multiple different fry options, because I’m a sucker for a solid french fry-based meal and Dane was AMPED to find out he could stack his beef patties 3x if he wanted.
In our rush to get to In-N-Out our meal was pretty small in comparison to what I think Dane had been dreaming up for days, LOL!
We ended up ordering a Double Double and regular cheeseburger protein style (no bun), but it came with a bun — lame! We also ordered our fries “animal style” and a Neapolitan milkshake – layers of chocolate, vanilla and strawberry.
It seems like we ordered fairly simple things in comparison to some of the other options I’ve seen. This infographic from Serious Eats gives you a play-by-play of the options. It’s a language all its own — believe me — so I recommend going in prepared!
Are you a fan of In-N-Out? What do you order?
