Secret Menu for In N Out

I am an avid lover of In N Out.  I still remember the day I moved to California from Hong Kong and discovered this wonderful chain of burgers.  My first taste threw me into a spin of addiction that lasted almost a year of having to eat there at least once a week!  Lets just say that it did nothing for my waistline but made me a happy, happy girl!
Now. years later, I still love In N Out, but I don’t go there once a week anymore, sad to say the least.  Over the years though, I have discovered the “secret menu” of this wonderful establishment.  Oh yeah, there is a menu that no one talks about.  Only true fans know about this unlisted menu.  Whilst on their corporate site, they do give you a list, it is FAR from complete.  Here is the menu I got from their website of the “Not So Secret Menu”:
If you watch my latest vlog from YouTube, you will also see that even their employees will NOT reveal this secret to just anyone.  No siree!  Their lips are sealed tight.  However, mine isn’t, and today I will share with you the secret SECRET menu of In N Out!
The typical and standard burger comes with your meat patty, tomato, lettuce, onions and the In N Out sauce that is similar to a thousand island dressing.
 Animal style is the most popular “secret” style that most people know about.  You can also make your fries animal style as well.

Protein style, popular for those on a no carb diet or just feel like having a burger wrapped with lettuce.  It can be combined with other special orders as well, e.g., animal protein style.

3×3, 4×4, or generally M × C refers to a burger with a varied number of meat patties (first number, M) and slices of cheese (second number, C). For example, the popular Double-Double would be 2×2 (pronounced “Two-by-two” when you order it), while a burger with 3 meat patties and 1 slice of cheese would be a 3×1 (a “three-by-one”).

The Flying Dutchman (this is the elusive one that most people DO NOT know about):

  • Two meat patties

  • two slices of cheese

  • no bun

  • Note: other condiments (including lettuce, tomato, spread, and onions) are not included unless you request them.

  • This is a great way to circumvent the burger size rules. i.e.: order a 4×4 and two Flying Dutchmans and you have essentially an 8×8

Grilled Cheese – I have had this before and it wasn’t all that impressive.  Basically, if you want a grilled cheese sandwich, go to Ruby’s Diner or somewhere that is known for grilled cheese.  However, just FYI, the grilled cheese used to be cooked on the side of the grill that was reserved for toasting buns (so that it wouldn’t get contaminated from being cooked on the same surface used to cook meat). They now have two separate grills, one for meat, and the other for bun toasting. However, the bun grill is coated with a special non-stick surface that doesn’t allow them to cook grilled cheeses on it any longer, and they have to cook them on the same surface as the meat.

Gorilla Style/Monkey Style –  is rumored to exist but the cashiers do not know what this is typically. They will gladly make anything you ask for though. For the record, “monkey style” (also referred to as “gorilla style”) is a burger with animal fries in the middle of it.

Wish Burger or Veggie Burger:

  • A sandwich containing only vegetables, and no meat or cheese (who orders this?  Might as well not go to In N Out!!!)

Fries animal style:  an order of French fries drenched in cheese, grilled onions, and special sauce (a thicker thousand island dressing)

Fries Light:  French fries taken out of the fryer a little early. These are a little bit raw on the inside and less crispy.

Fries Well-Done:  The opposite of fries light. This order leaves your fries on the fryer extra long, making them really crispy and oily.

Cheese Fries:  Fries with melted cheese on top

Neapolitan shake:  All the milkshake flavors swirled together, vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry.

Root Beer Float:  Half vanilla milkshake and half root beer soda.

Choco-Vanilla Swirl:  A chocolate milkshake swirled in with a vanilla milkshake

Lemon-up:  Lemonade and seven up mixed together.

Large and extra large shakes:  if you ask for a large shake they’ll give you a shake in a medium sized soda cup and extra large in a large soda cup.

Tea-Ade:  An Arnold Palmer. Half iced tea and half lemonade.

Now you know all the ins and outs about In N Out…go out and try this secret menu and let me know what you have had.  Post pictures if you would like ion reply to my blog!  Would love to hear from you all  🙂 

P.S.  There is also a secret menu for McDonald’s, Burger King, Starbucks, Jamba Juice and a few others.  Once I try each of them…I will surely let you know!!!  So check back for more.
