All about food ~ In-N-Out

I have a new confession... I really enjoy In-N-Out Burgers. I have never had a fast food hamburger that I liked before. Honestly. I have tried bites of every nasty thing my husband gets, and I think they are all gross, without thinking of the trees they cut down, or the horrible life of the cow. In-N-Out was a new experience for me.

For those of you who have never been to California, let me tell you... this place isn't your average fast food chain. There have been no so-called 'improvements' to their food over the past 40 years. They have 6 things on their menu: Hamburger, Cheeseburger, Double Double, Fries, Soda, and Shake. That is it. Their fries are made from potatoes (grown in California) that they put through a machine that cuts them right in front of you. They are then transferred to hot veggie oil, drained, lightly salted and put into your basket. That is it. Just about everything is that simple. They have to get their food fresh and semi-local because they don't have freezers on the premises at all. And best of all, their employees START at $11/hr. I consider it to be in the top two fast food chains ever... right up there with Burgerville, a local OR company that has amazing seasonal food and awesome veggie burgers.

The more I learned about the company and practices, the more I was ok with eating there. And that was good, because my husband was more excited when we saw the first In-N-Out than he was about taking the kids to Legoland! LOL!

As someone with Celiac's disease I LOVE In & Out. I can order burgers "protein style", which is no bun and the burger is wrapped well in lettuce leaves. Yum!

They also have a secret menu of items that are not advertised to the general public. For example, the 20 by 20. Which is 20 layers of burgers interspersed with 20 slices of cheese. Not on the menu, but its on the register! I've never ordered it, but I know its there.
