Attention In-N-Out fans: a 100-square foot replica of the very first In-N-Out burger stand recently opened in Baldwin Park, CA.
Try to order a Monkey Style burger at In-N-Out and you'll be refused. But you can order Animal Style fries (fries topped with cheese, spread, and grilled onions) and a burger separately and combined them yourself.
Today, Shake Shack announced they'll be opening in Las Vegas at the end of 2014. We'll finally be able to do a real side-by-side In-N-Out vs. Five Guys vs. Shake Shack taste test.
Thanks to the power of cheap and reliable fast food burgers (and a huge secret menu), the title for America's youngest female billionaire goes to Lynsi Torres, the 30-year-old president and owner of In-N-Out and granddaughter of In-N-Out's founders Harry and Esther Snyder. This week, Bloomberg profiled the the media-shy Torres.

Jason McLeod is San Diego's first Michelin-starred chef, but he's not above naming In-N-Out's Double-Double (Animal Style) as his go-to burger. When he's not scarfing down mustard-grilled patties, he loves a good, classic burger on a top-notch bun, preferably topped with some unique pickles. Read on for his top five burger picks in San Diego.
On Monday, the USDA temporarily shut down Central Valley Meat Co. slaughterhouse in Hanford, California, after animal welfare videos showed inhumane treatment of livestock.
Boston native Kenny Bowers has been a fixture of the Dallas food scene for so long—going on 20 years—he's practically a true Texan. The chef's Frisco burger joint has received rave reviews and shows no signs of slowing. Kenny is in Dallas to stay, and after taking his top five tour, you just might be convinced to stick around, too.
What's the best part of a Shake Shack hamburger? It's the beef and bun. The high-quality, custom-blended, perfectly seared, juicy and tender beef, along with the buttery Martin's Potato Rolls, right? The best part of an In-N-Out burger, on the other hand, is the ability to Animal Style-ify it. That is, the ability to order any burger sizzled on the griddle in mustard with caramelized onions, extra pickles, and In-N-Our "Spread" (a.k.a. Thousand Island Dressing). My mission this week: Create and consume the world's first Shake Shake Double Double Animal-Style.
Mission Bowling Club's Anthony Myint is known for many things—as a pioneer in the charitable restaurant business, a cookbook author, and an influential chef—but his burger might just be his crowning achievement. He's a little shy about its $14 price tag (only $10 at happy hour!), so when we asked for his top five burgers in the city, he named a range.
David Myers knows a thing or two about burgers. After cutting his teeth working at a three Michelin-starred restaurant in France, then under Daniel Boulud, he set out to bring his own creation to Los Angeles. It took years of training and a rumored 11 tries to get Comme Ça's version just right, by treating it like a steak, but David says it's really his mom that taught him how to make what The New York Times has deemed a perfect burger (and we agree). Here are his top five burgers in Los Angeles.
Top a Double-Double from In-N-Out with foie gras and you've got a Double Duck. In this video, actor and comedian David Ury "orders" the (nonexistent secret menu item) Double Duck at In-N-Out for what sounds like $172.50, and explains that you only have until July 1 to get it in California, when the California law banning the sale of foie gras goes into effect.
Was it life-changing? No. It was really, really, really good fast food. And then I had a revelation of my own.
I'll be heading to Texas for the Memorial Day Weekend, and in the past, that has meant a burger run to some obscure restaurant that I've read about in Hamburger America or seen on TV or found referenced in some weird online carnivore chatroom. Now that In-N-Out have set up shop in the Lone Star State, I know exactly where I'm headed. But I don't know what I'm getting.
The Shooter's Sandwich and the In-N-Out Double Double Animal Style. What happens when you take the world's most awesomest fast food burger and combine it with the world's most awesomest sandwich? Serious Eats Senior Managing Editor Carey Jones and I were about to find out.
