Remember I promised you the scoop on In-N-Out’s “not so secret menu” in a previous post?  Well, here I am to deliver.  If you want to shake things up a bit, try ordering one of these items on your next trip to In-N-Out.  Some are standard knowledge; others may need to be explained to employees, but they should do their best to accommodate you. 

Customize Your Burger

  • 3×3, 4×4, 2×4, 4×2 – 3 patties with 3 slices of cheese, 4 patties with 4 slices of cheese, 2 patties with 4 slices of cheese, 4 patties with 2 slices of cheese, etc., etc….just tell them how many patties & how many slices of cheese you want.
  • Double Meat – 2 patties without cheese
  • Plain Burger – Just the meat & bun (Amazing Diner would like this one)
  • Mustard Grilled – Any burger with mustard grilled onto one side
  • 3 by Meat – 3 patties without cheese
  • Animal Style – Any burger mustard-grilled with pickle, extra spread and grilled onions
  • Protein Style – Any burger wrapped in lettuce instead of a bun
  • Grilled Cheese – Basically a cheeseburger without the beef patty….2 slices of cheese with all the vegetable trimmings & spread.
  • Veggie Burger (aka Wish Burger) – Basically a hamburger without the beef patty…just all the veggies & spread on a bun.  (not my cup of tea, but someone must like it.)
  • Flying Dutchman – 2 meat patties & 2 slices of melted cheese with nothing else…not even a bun!
  • Flying Dutchman Animal Style – the above but with diced onions melted in with the cheese; pickles & spread are served on the side
  • No Toast Bun/Lightly Toasted/Extra Toasted Bun – pretty much what is says…you can get an untoasted bun or one that’s toasted the way you want it
  • Medium Rare – patty has a pink center
  • Add Mustard/Add Ketchup – add another condiment…make sure you specify you also want the spread.
  • Only Mustard/Only Ketchup – forgo the special spread & choose mustard and/or ketchup
  • No Salt  – they won’t salt your patty
  • Cold Cheese – cheese is unmelted
  • Whole Raw Onion – raw onion rings instead of chopped
  • Grilled Onions – add to any burger…these are chopped
  • Whole Grilled Onion – like the above, but these will be rings
  • Triple X – any burger with extra tomatoes, lettuce, & onions
  • Chopped Chilis – add to any burger…these are spicy pickled peppers
  • Split in Half – have any burger cut in half
  • Fries Inside – any burger with fries as a topping

Customize Your Fries

  • Cheese Fries – fries topped with melted cheese
  • Animal Style Fries – fries topped with cheese, spread, & grilled onions.
  • Fries Well Done – extra crispy fries
  • Fries Light Well – in between regular and well done
  • Fries Light – less crispy fries
  • Fries No Salt – no salt added to your fries

Customize Your Shakes

  • Neapolitan Shake – strawberry, chocolate, & vanilla blended together
  • Black & White Shake – chocolate & vanilla blended together (you can actually get any flavors combined)
  • Extra Syrup – extra flavoring in your shake
  • Large/Extra Large Shakes – large is in a medium soft drink cup; extra large is in a large soft drink cup

On the Side

  • Spread on the Side – popular to dip fries in
  • Chilis on the Side – same spicy pickled peppers, but you get a bag of 2 whole ones
  • Salad on the Side – lettuce, tomato, & onions in a bag

Whew!  In-N-Out doesn’t seem so simple now, doesn’t it?  I think a mustard-grilled cheeseburger with whole grilled onion, some well done fries, and a neapolitan shake might be calling my name.  And maybe I should order it split in half.  What about you?
