Are you a fan of In-N-Out? This beloved burger joint originated in Southern California and has become a cult favorite with its delectable classics and unique modifications. While their regular menu is well-known, did you know that they also have a secret menu? In this article, we will unlock the hidden treasures of In-N-Out and introduce you to their tantalizing offerings.
The Not So Secret Menu
In-N-Out’s “not so secret menu” is a hidden gem waiting to be discovered. It features a range of mouthwatering creations that are not listed on the physical menu. Consider it an invitation to explore the endless possibilities of customizing your In-N-Out experience.
One of the most popular customization options is the infamous Animal Style. Whether applied to fries or burgers, this preparation style combines cheese sauce, extra In-N-Out secret spread, and caramelized onions for a burst of flavor. The In-N-Out Double Animal Style Burger, a legendary item, is a double-meat, double-cheese burger with hand-leafed lettuce, tomato, a mustard cooked beef patty, caramelized onions, pickles, and special sauce.
Protein Style, AKA Lettuce Wrap
If you’re looking for a healthier alternative, the Protein Style, also known as the Lettuce Wrap, is the perfect choice. This option replaces the bun with a cool and crunchy lettuce wrap while allowing you to enjoy all the delicious sauces and toppings without the mess.
3×3 and 4×4
For those with a hearty appetite, the 3×3 and 4×4 variations will satisfy your cravings. The 3×3 is an impressive triple-patty and triple-cheese burger, while the 4×4 takes it to the next level with four patties and four slices of cheese. These towering sandwiches are an ultimate indulgence for burger enthusiasts.
In-N-Out’s Grilled Cheese offers a sophisticated twist on the classic sandwich. It goes beyond just toasted buns and cheese by adding lettuce, tomato, spread, and optional onions. Remove any extra toppings if simplicity is your preference.
The Secret-Secret Menu
But wait, there’s more! In addition to the “not so secret menu,” In-N-Out offers a secret-secret menu for the true connoisseurs.
The Flying Dutchman is a no-frills option that strips away all the extras. It consists of two burger patties with cheese sandwiched in between, perfect for those seeking a gluten-free or calorie-conscious choice.
Roadkill Style takes the already mouthwatering Animal Style to new heights. In addition to the standard Animal Style toppings, it includes a crumbled beef patty on top of the fries. Although it may not be widely known, simply mentioning Animal Style with a Scooby Snack or an extra patty will get you this delicious creation.
Animal Style Flying Dutchman
If you’re feeling adventurous, try the Animal Style Flying Dutchman. This extraordinary fusion combines the simplicity of a patty and cheeseburger with the bold flavors of Animal Fries. The result? An unconventional, yet delectable, culinary experience.
For those who crave both a burger and Animal Fries, Monkey Style is a game-changer. It takes the classic Double Double and adds a generous serving of Animal Fries into the mix. This Instagram-worthy creation gained popularity on social media for a reason.
Temperature and Mustard Grilled
In-N-Out goes the extra mile by offering customizable burger temperatures. You can even order your patty medium rare for a slightly pink middle. And for mustard enthusiasts, you have the option to have your patty grilled in mustard to intensify the flavor.
In-N-Out understands that not everyone craves animal protein. Although they don’t yet have a plant-based patty, they do offer a Veggie Sandwich. It includes all the standard burger toppings, such as lettuce, tomato, special sauce, and optional onions. Vegans, however, should note that the special sauce contains dairy, but fear not, the fries are still vegan-friendly as they are cooked in sunflower oil.
Beyond the secret menus, In-N-Out offers a variety of other customizations to enhance your dining experience.
If you’re particular about your fries, In-N-Out can prepare them to your liking. Whether you prefer them crispy or soft, you can request normal, light well, well, or extra well. And if you’re feeling adventurous, try their cheese fries topped with melted goodness.
Split in Half
If you’re dining with a smaller appetite or want a burger for a child, In-N-Out is happy to accommodate. Simply ask for your burger to be cut in half, and you’ll receive two perfectly portioned halves, individually wrapped.
For those who like to switch things up, In-N-Out offers alternative toppings. Try adding hot yellow chili peppers, extra spread, mustard, or cold cheese instead of the regular melted cheese.
Extra Toasty, or Not Toasted
Bun preferences matter, and In-N-Out is here to cater to your needs. Simply request your bun to be toasted a little less or double-toasted for an extra crunch.
In-N-Out typically serves their onions sliced and raw. However, if that doesn’t suit your taste, you can request them chopped or grilled for a milder flavor.
To personalize your order further, In-N-Out provides additional add-ons at reasonable prices:
- Extra Patty: $0.75
- Extra Cheese: $0.30
- Turn your burger into a meal: $2.75
In-N-Out not only offers fountain drinks and shakes but also some delightful drink combinations that loyal customers have created.
For a refreshing twist on your fountain drinks, try the Lemon-Up (lemonade and 7up), Arnold Palmer (tea and lemonade), or a classic Root Beer Float (root beer with vanilla ice cream).
If milkshakes are more your style, indulge in a Chocolate-Vanilla Swirl Shake or a Neapolitan Shake (chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry). And if you desire more than the standard size, don’t hesitate to request a large or extra-large shake for added enjoyment.
With all these exciting customizations at your disposal, your next visit to In-N-Out will be an adventure. Whether you’re a loyal fan or a first-time visitor, trying something new is what keeps the experience fresh and exciting.
