All California carnivores are forever grateful for a little fast food chain called In-N-Out. In-N-Out is famous for quality burgers made to order with fresh ingredients. They have a real simple menu. You can get a hamburger, a cheeseburger, or a double cheeseburger with lettuce, tomato, and sauce. They have fries, shakes, and sodas. They have a hidden menu for a more customized experience. You can get a Protein style burger, which is a burger with a lettuce wrap in lieu of a bun. Animal style is more exciting. The patty is cooked in mustard and your burger comes with extra sauce and added pickles and grilled onions.You can also get your fries Animal style. That adds two slices of cheese, grilled onions, and sauce. Don’t forget to add chili peppers for even more flavor. Unfortunately there’s still no bacon, no matter how hard you try.
In-N-Out is mostly a California chain, but the company has since expanded into Oregon, Arizona, Utah, Nevada, and even Texas. I did a little Wikipedia search and discovered that the family owns it has had a lot of tragedies. Rich Snyder became president when his father died, and he successfully expanded the company until died in a plane crash. Guy Snyder took over until he died by overdosing on painkillers. I don’t think any other Snyder has died in dramatic fashion since, but I will keep you updated.
In-N-Out is categorized as fast food. It’s really not. It’s very popular and it’s not uncommon to see a line out the door. It can take fifteen minutes to half an hour to get your food. The name is slightly misleading. They should call it In-N-Wait. Snap. Burn. It’s still worth waiting for. It’s fucking delicious, especially when you’ve been craving it for a while.
