In’n’Out Burger, adulated by many people as the Holy Grail of all fast-food burgers…It is time for The Burger Tribune to write about this!
In’n’Out Burger opened its first branch in 1984 and rapidly expanded all across California, counting today nearly 300 restaurants across the West Coast. The secret behind In’n’Out popularity among burger enthusiasts: staying true to your values. Born Californian, the company stayed under family-management for more than thirty years, is using fresh beef patties each day and proposes a very simple menu to his clients:
I had the chance to grab a double-double during my stay in San Francisco In January 2012. I ordered it with a Dr. Pepper and, while the french fries were a bit undercooked, the burger was definitely a winner. Fresh, simple yet very tasty, made with quality ingredients. That’s what you would expect from a traditional fast-food, no fancy sauces, no extravagant buns or toppings, just a fresh burger that will satisfy your hunger, and that’s what you get at In’n’Out.
In addition to the very rudimentary menu displayed in each of In’n’Out’s branch, the restaurant also proposes a “secret menu” that is becoming these days less and less secret. Some of the most popular items are even displayed on the company’s website under the section “our not-so-secret menu” . For example, if you order your burger “animal style”, you will get extra grilled onions, mustard sauce on the patty and pickles, same if you order your fries “animal style”.
If you ask for a “protein style” , it will be wrapped in a lettuce leaf insted of the paper pictured here.
Ask for a 3×3, and you will get 3 beef patties and 3 slices of cheddar…
