  1. Very politely. Animal style. Though I just learned they have chili peppers so I might need to throw those into the mix. Double Double Animal Style, Fries Animal style, diet coke. :)

      OK, gotta ask what "animal style" means . . . I haven't had a burger at In n Out

        Are you in for a treat! AS means that the patty(ies) is/are grilled in mustard and the onions are grilled, not raw. For a quick serve burger it is excellent.

              Drumroll! . . . I had my first In-N-Out burger today - animal style. I rolled right up to the place like I knew just what I was doing thanks to CH advice. The burger was quite good, especially considering the price. I'm picky about any kind of ground meat product . . . but my fears were quelled when I read on the website that they grind their own chuck. So, good! I now have a new place to go for a quick inexpensive meal on the fly:-)

        1. Double Meat with onions or Animal Style works for me. either is a nice balance of bun, meat, spread and toppings.......fries gotta be well done.

          1. Double meat, animal style, medium rare, grilled and raw, mustard instead.

              good choice tomswift...

              i have the same..but one protein style and one regular style...mmm mmm gooooood....

            2. I have to get this answer in before there are 300+ responses and my post gets buried in the wave.

              Double-double, Protein Style (lettuce wrap, no bun), Animal, plus extra raw onions and tomatoes, ask for the fries to be extra crispy and for the hot chilies. Don't even think of eating this burger in your car if you care about the upholstery and /floor!

              Side note: I have been a customer In-N-Out for more than twenty-five years and always thought the fries were meh. Thanks to this board, I learned about the extra crispy option and it has made all the difference.

              1. Cheeseburger, raw and grilled onions. I take out the tomato and give it to my boyfriend. =)
                Animal style fries.
                Diet coke.

                Pretty simple.
