In-n-Out Burger's Secret Menu

As fast food chains go, In-n-Out Burger is arguably the best. They do burgers, fries and shakes, nothing else, and they sure do it good. Everything is fresh and made to order; they've got no freezers because ingredients are delivered everyday.

Ordering at the drive-thru one time, my brother said, "make mine animal style". Animal style? He wants his burger rare?

Turns out "animal style" means the patty is fried with grilled onions on top, just one of the unpublished codes insiders use to get their burgers just the way they like it:

"3-by-3" = three meat patties and three slices of cheese.

"3 by Meat" = three meat patties and no cheese.

"Animal Style" = the meat is cooked and fried with mustard and then pickles are added, extra spread and grilled onions are added.

"Animal Style Fries" = fries with cheese, spread, grilled onions and pickles (if you ask for them).

"Double Meat" = like a Double Double without cheese.

"Flying Dutchman" = two meat patties, two slices of melted cheese and nothing else - not even a bun!

Fries "Well-Done" = extra crispy fries . . . even better than the regular!

Fries "Light" = opposite of fries well-done, more raw than most people like 'em

"Grilled Cheese" = no meat, just melted cheese, tomato, lettuce and spread on a bun.

"Protein Style" = for all you low-carbohydrate dieters, this is a burger with no bun (wrapped in lettuce).

"Veggie Burger" = burger without the patty or cheese. Sometimes we call this the "Wish Burger."


"Neapolitan" Shake = strawberry, vanilla and chocolate blended together.
Try it next time. Heck, try it tonight.
