In-N-Out Burger

Just when thing were quieting down about In-N-Out Burger.........
Read both pages of the article.

And yes, I know they're not in the same league as Maple & Motor, Wingfields and a few other excellent burger joints. But they will be a welcome addition and alternative to the "fast food" burger scene.

  1. That's useful to know about the medium rare option - didn't know that's part of the secret menu now. But honestly I don't think it would make a discernible difference considering how thin those patties are.

      The stock menu has 4 items plus drinks and shakes. Here's a more thorough version of the options that are available:

        Right. Even though the not so secret "secret menu" lists only a few options, there are still quite a few more really secret "secret items". The 2 minute fries are a good case in point.

        1. re: twinwillow

          The Caruth At Central location is now listed on their website under locations.

      2. re: air

        To follow up, I ordered medium rare when I had lunch at an In-N-Out just before my flight out of Sacramento on monday and my initial suspicion was confirmed. There's a little bit of pink in the middle, but no earth-shattering changes as far as texture, flavor, or juicyness.

        1. re: air

          Yeah, I suppose thats the best you're ever going to get with a 2 oz. patty.

      3. Twin, nobody needs to make excuses for In-N-Out. The places you mention along with Chips, Jakes, Twisted Root, etc. are in a different category.

        The biggest pushback on In-N-Out will be from diehard Whataburger fans, of which there are many.

        1. re: Scagnetti

          I am a big fan of Whataburger, but I don't really think of them and In-N-Out as the same thing.

          As for the secret menu, my standard order is a 3x3, extra toast, extra sauce, grilled onions, fries well done. Absolute greatness

          1. re: Scagnetti

            Or from those of us who think that In-N-Out is good, and also exceeds the bang to hype ratio.

            Edit, this was supposed to be in response to the "diehard Whataburger fans" post.

          2. I don't eat beef and don't eat "fast food" but after 25 years in California I have to say that once a year or so when, for whatever reason, I wanted a burger, In-N-Out was my choice.

            I guess I'll have to make a trip to one here once they open.

            1. Still more In-N-Out "secret menu" info............


              1. I am not a big In and Out fan but as FYI to whoever is interested I saw that one is under construction at Coit and 635 in North Dallas. Might be old news but it was new to me

                  Interesting. That put's it relatively close to the one being built at
                  Caruth and Central. I'd of thought they would have spaced them further apart at this stage.

                  1. re: taldeac

                    Which isnt far from Tollway and 635 where one looks nearly ready to open (northwest corner near Hilton)
