In-N-Out

This article was written by in Reviews. 15 comments.


After arriving in southern California, I was treated to an In-N-Out burger (a “double-double”) for the first time last night. The burger and the chocolate shake live up to the hype, for the most part. While I’m not normally a fast food afficionado (too expensive and usually gross and unsettling), I was told I could make an exception.

It was a little messy but surprisingly tasty.

My wife has an aversion to ground beef, but during her pregnancy one of her cravings has been In-N-Out burgers. Fortunately one just opened in our town.

Me, I’ve always been afraid there is some truth in advertising to the name.

Ask for one ‘animal style’ and be prepared to eat.

I fly out to Northern Cal at least 2x a year to visit my brother’s family. And no trip is complete without a visit to In-N-Out. And Chrees, the name refers to the drive thru, not the effect it has on your GI tract. LOL.

Welcome to the cult.

double-double animal style and a neapolitan shake… mmmmm…. The closest in-n-out to me is in Redding, CA; It’s about a 500 mile drive, but I’ve done the drive more than once.

finally eh? I still haven’t met a person who doesn’t consider in-n-out tasty—to some degree.

My favorite burger but doesn’t quite fill me as much as before… shrinking burger? or larger stomach?

P.S. Take a close look at the bottom of their beverage cups (the rim on the outside) for a little cryptic message. Not a franchise so they can do this.

you’re right… not cryptic (wrong choice of words) but not what you’d expect at a fast-food joint.

I don’t eat beef often, but I’m willing to risk the heartburn to see if they do live up to the hype. If they ever opened one in NYC I would go in a heartbeat.
