In-N-Out Burger

On our way back from the weekend in Palm Springs in November, we stopped by In-N-Out Burger for lunch before our flight.

Mabel couldn't leave California without having at least one meal at In-N-Out Burger. After we dropped off Robin for his flight to Boston, Mabel, Ben, mom, and I decided to drive away from the airport on Century Blvd until we ran into an In-N-Out. Right as we were able to give up, we found one.

Right after I took this picture, I overheard someone say, "Why'd that guy just take a picture of this In-N-Out?" Why do people take pictures of anything? I see the Empire State Building on my way to lab every day, and I don't take pictures of it. But it's not every day that I see an In-N-Out.

I love these burgers. They are perfect. Mabel was very happy.

It turns out that there is an airport shuttle to an even closer In-N-Out that we didn't know about. But this was close enough. We stopped by a Yoshinoya on our way back to the airport for dinner to take on the flight, and then back to the airport.

We love In-N-Out Burgers! We like the french fries "well done". They fry it twice for you. Try it next time, otherwise the fries are limp because they use vegetable oil to fry the fries. You'll never go back to normal fries again.

The "animal style" fries are OK. I prefer fries "well done". The "spread" on the "animal style" fries is just too much. But, I have been known to get the "spread" on the side.

My husband likes it with "chopped peppers" in it. They'll add that inside the burger for you. I think the peppers are too spicy and it distracts from the burger taste. So I ask for my peppers on the side.

I like my cheeseburger with "extra tomato" and fresh onions. But sometimes, I get it "animal style" where they put sauteed onions in it instead.

Do you know about the other "secret" burger menu that's not listed on the actual menu? It's a Californian thing and a native would know about it.

My post got listed under my husband's name (Brian).

It was me, Michelle (Christine's friend).

Hey Michelle, I didn't know about the well done fries. I think I'll go for those the next time I'm in CA. The fries weren't exactly limp, but they seemed sort of underdone. I've heard about the secret menu. I just checked and In-N-Out refers to it as the Not-So-Secret Menu on its website.
