On my last trip to California, some dinner plans were cancelled at the last minute, so I did what many California natives would do: I went to In-N-Out Burger. I don't eat fast food or hamburgers very often, so when I do, it has to be good. My meal was better than good; it was awesome!
There are a few reasons why In-N-Out Burger is so successful. First, all of their food is fresh, never frozen-you can see bags of potatoes that will become fries. Second, their menu is limited; they sell only burgers, fries, shakes, and soda. Instead of trying to be everything to everyone, they do a few things very well. Finally, their food is very inexpensive-my hamburger and fries cost less than $4.00. How can you beat that?
In-N-Out Burger also has a secret menu. Before your next visit, google "In-N-Out Burger secret menu" and see if you'd like to alter your order. FYI-my son likes his fries served "animal style." I, however, am a purist and always order a hamburger and fries.
