In & Out of Oakland...

So no California trip would be complete with a stop at In & Out Burger... so to complete our vacation, we packed in a lunch just before our flight. (And for those that haven't heard of In & Out, its a popular fast food chain that doesn't have a fancy menu aside from hamburgers, cheeseburgers, fries, onion rings and shakes... all fresh & made to order!)

Double Double w/Cheese Animal Style
Triple Triple w/Cheese Animal Style
Fries Well Done
In-N-Out Burger has a secret unpublished menu for insiders who are In-The-Know. Next time you're at In-N-Outorder a bag of these off-the-menu specials:

"3-by-3" = three meat patties and three slices of cheese.

"4-by-4" = four meat patties and four slices of cheese.

"2-by-4" = two meat patties and four slices of cheese.

*Note: You can get a burger with as many meat patties or cheese slices as you want. Just tell the In-N-Out Burger cashier how many meat patties and how much cheese you want and that is what you'll get! For instance, if you want 6 pieces of meat and 10 pieces of cheese tell them you want a "6-by-10."

"Double Meat" = like a Double Double without cheese.

"3 by Meat" = three meat patties and no cheese.

"Animal Style" = the meat is cooked and fried with mustard and then pickles are added, extra spread and grilled onions are added.

"Animal Style Fries" = fries with cheese, spread, grilled onions and pickles (if you ask for them).

"Protein Style" = for all you low-carbohydrate dieters, this is a burger with no bun (wrapped in lettuce).

"Flying Dutchman" = two meat patties, two slices of melted cheese and nothing else - not even a bun!

Fries "Well-Done" = extra crispy fries . . . even better than the regular!

Fries "Light" = opposite of fries well-done, more raw than most people like 'em

"Grilled Cheese" = no meat, just melted cheese, tomato, lettuce and spread on a bun.

"Veggie Burger" = burger without the patty or cheese. Sometimes we call this the "Wish Burger."

"Neapolitan" Shake = strawberry, vanilla and chocolate blended together.


  1. Oh how I love In n Out!!! I can't wait to have it when I am in Vegas next month!

  2. I had In n Out when I was in Cali a couple summers ago. I don't know what it was, but it just didn't do it for me. I am glad you enjoyed it!

  3. Oh boy... it's probably a very good thing I don't live near an In $ Out, this looks dangerous. :)
