Reading HH's In-N-Out review reminded me of a tidbit that every self-respecting burger fan knows about: In-N-Out's secret menu.* When a simple cheeseburger isn't enough, you can try some of these ca-razy combinations:
"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."
"Animal Style" = the meat is cooked and fried with mustard and then pickles are added, extra spread and grilled onions are added.
"Flying Dutchman" = two meat patties, two slices of melted cheese and nothing else - not even a bun!
"Neapolitan" Shake = strawberry, vanilla and chocolate blended together.
And that's just a taste as there are still more options. For those of us who live on the east coast and can't make it to an In-N-Out very easily, Badmouth.net has sampled the entire secret menu and taken photos.
*If you didn't know about it until just now, fear not young burger lover. We may be burger snobs at AHT, but we aim to educate.
