Why is In-N-Out so truly magical?
In-N-Out Burger, located only in California, Nevada, Utah, and Arizona, has had it’s virtues extolled by many a burger lover, but I am suspicious of everyone’s tastebuds, so I wasn’t expecting anything life-changing.
The menu is simple: burgers, fries, shakes, and soft drinks. Their meat is never frozen and handled by their own butchers before being sent out to stores. The lettuce is “hand-leafed” and burger buns are baked in-house using slow-rising dough. The buns are awesome. Kind of crispy and grilled on the outside, and soft and chewy in the middle. Sigh. And then of course they have a “special” sauce. And a secret menu.
That’s right, you can order a grilled cheese even though it's not up there. Same with the cheese fries. If they have all the stuff to make it, you can probably ask for it. (I’m sure there are some limitations here.) I also recommend getting grilled onions on your burger (or grilled cheese.) So there you have it kids—all the hype, it’s for real.
