In n' Out Burger

The first time I ever heard of a "secret menu" was at an In n' Out Burger restaurant.  I'm not sure who came-up with the concept but In n' Out Burger has perfected it. I've ordered several items off their secret menu and the staff always knows what I'm talking about. Plus, the food at In n' Out is delicious whether or not it's a secret.

2 x 4: This mouthwatering burger is made with two beef patties and four slices of cheese. If you love cheeseburgers, you’ve got to try a 2 x 4. You might just find that this one's for you!

3 x 3: This burger is made with three patties and three slices of cheese.  Get a juicy taste of beef and cheese every time you bite into a 3 x 3 burger.

4 x 4: Have you ever heard the phrase "Where’s the beef?" Well you won't be saying that with a 4 x 4! It is the ultimate for an In n' Out Burger lover. Just imagine a burger with four patties and four slices of cheese. This is definitely not your mama's burger!

Animal Style: The name doesn’t do this burger justice, it is delicious. The beef patty is covered with mustard prior to grilling and the burger is covered with grilled onions and pickles in addition to the normal items you get on a burger.

Animal Fries: This is an order of French fries with their special hamburger dressing, cheese, grilled onions and pickles. This is a meal in itself.

Cheese Fries: Order a delicious side of In n’ Out fries topped with melted cheese. All you need to say is "cheese fries, please."

Double Meat: This is just what it says, double the meat. The original burger made with two patties

Flying Dutchman: This interesting named sandwich is made-up of two beef patties and two slices of cheese and nothing else. No bun, lettuce, tomato, or anything else.

Grilled Cheese: This is one of my personal favorites. A grilled cheese is the same as their normal cheeseburger without the beef patty. Order it "animal style" and you'll get grilled onions and pickles with your grilled cheese sandwich.

Mustard Grilled Patty: This patty is covered with mustard prior to cooking for a flavorful burger.

Neapolitan Shake: Just as the name implies; this is a vanilla, chocolate and strawberry flavored milkshake. Yummy! If you love Neapolitan ice cream you will love this shake!

Protein Style: You can order any hamburger “protein style” which means you get everything but the bun. It comes wrapped in lettuce.

Toasted Bun: If you like your hamburger bun crispy, just order a toasted bun. The grill masters at In n’ Out will toss your bun on the grill and make your burger extra crispy.

Veggie Burger: The veggie burger is a hamburger bun with spread, lettuce, lots of tomatoes, and onions. There is no meat or cheese in this burger.

Well Done Fries: If you like your French fries crispy like potato chips, order them well done.
