In-n-Out Burger's "Secret Menu"

You've probably heard about “Animal Style” burgers and fries at In-n-Out Burger. They’re just a small part of an extensive (over 400 possible combinations) derivation of the standard menu known as the “Secret Menu”. The following links provide two of the better itemizations that I’ve seen. Thought you might enjoy. Have fun! ^_^

For the record, my usual order is

- 3 x 2, animal style, medium, whole grilled onion, extra toast, extra mustard, chopped chilies, no spread, no pickles
- Fries, extra crispy
- Root beer float or Lemon-up

  1. I almost always order two hamburgers, animal style with chopped chilies. I don't like the double double - too much fat overwhelms the condiments.

      Agreed. My problem with the standard burger is that the meat patty is too thin. For me, the perfect patty is just under a half pound. Three patties give me 3/8 pound, ideal without too much bread. Given a few tries, just about anyone can arrive at their ideal balance of meat and condiments (flavor).

    2. every time i go to a concert and I've got the munchies i always i mean always get 2x4 mustard grilled, well done, animal style, grilled onion, toasted bread, w/o pickles or tomatoes, and the spread with animal style fries with cheese and a Neapolitan shake. that just makes me feel like a million bucks.

      1. I always get a 4x4 but I never heard of 'animal style' or that they have chopped chilis. Please tell me more. Are the chilis hot or mild?

          Pepperoncini in prepacked in little cellophane packets.

            Thanks, Monku but what is 'animal style'??

                Now I've got it. I'll give it a shot next time. I'll also get the flying dutchman for my "dogter". I know she'll love it.

                  I mis-named the peppers, but you saw a picture of them towards the end of the link?

        2. The "secret menu" is so secret, In-n-Out put it on their website.

          Great marketing tool, though.

            However, that's only a tiny fraction of the things that are actually available on the "secret menu."
