The Monkey Style Burger, an In-N-Out Burger Topped with Animal Style Fries
In-N-Out's secret menu accounts for over 20 variations on their menu of burgers, fries, and milkshakes. You can ask for extra-toasted buns, unmelted cheese instead of melted, a bun-less cheeseburger, and more. But one thing they won't do for you is top your burger with fries—not plain fries and especially not Animal Style fries topped with cheese, spread, and grilled onions.
Last week, blogger Elie Ayrouth of Foodbeast posted a video where he attempts to order Animal Style fries-topped burgers—dubbed Monkey Style burgers—at an In-N-Out after supposedly reading about them on Twitter. He does end up getting Monkey Style burgers, but as The Atlantic points out, it doesn't look like they were constructed by In-N-Out. Still, lots of people tried to order it. Yesterday, In-N-Out confirmed that the burger doesn't exist on their menu.
Of course, if you don't mind putting in a bit of effort, you can just order Animal Style fries and a burger and make a Monkey Style burger yourself, as Grub Crawl did.
If any AHT'ers try it, let us know how it is.
