Hint: There are a few secret menu items you haven’t heard about.
Founded in 1948, In-N-Out was California’s first drive-thru hamburger chain—famous for its short and sweet menu of savory eats. (Get our copycat recipes here.) And while there are now hundreds of drive-throughs across the West Coast, In-N-Out remains iconic as the first. It is synonymous with the cool California lifestyle, drawing tourists from all over the world to one of their 300+ locations. Besides the burgers, find out what else is drawing folks in.
A secret menu exists
Most In-N-Out fanatics know about ordering their burgers animal style (all the fixin’s plus a top-secret sauce). But you can also order your burgers 3×3 (three patties) or even a 4×4 with—you guessed it—four patties. That’s a lot! Here’s more on the chain’s not-quite-secret menu, and check out other secret menu items from your favorite restaurants.
In-N-Out gear is available
You can show off your love for In-N-Out with everything from a classic t-shirt to a Swarovski crystal keychain or black silk tie donning the classic crossed palm trees. Maybe a gift for your favorite In-N-Out super fan?
Julia Child loved In-N-Out
Julia Child was a huge fan of the iconic chain. Yes, that’s right, one of the most revered chefs of all time was such a fan that she would carry a list of locations in her handbag, and she apparently had her assistant bring her burgers in the hospital while recovering from knee surgery. Bon appétit!
