The Secret & Double Secret In-N-Out Menu
Food & Wine Magazine recently named In-N-Out the best burger joint in the nation.For those of you who haven’t had the pleasure of devouring an In-N-Out burger, you must try one when you come to Vegas. Being from the Midwest, I had never heard of such a place until I moved here. I am lucky enough to have one a few miles from my home, so I can partake anytime, but, the truth is they are so good and so decadent, that I try to visit only on a quarterly basis. Frankly, I could eat there daily but we must have some restraint, right, ladies?
In-N-Out for you newbies is the busiest fast food drive thru in Vegas. At any given time, there are easily 10-15 cars in line at the window–and the inside is full too. What’s the draw, you say? Fresh burgers, fries and shakes made to order–simple as that! The menu is small and the food is great. The cheese on the burger actually has some taste and the fries are made right in front of your eyes out of whole potatoes. The burgers are just the best. I’ve had $13 burgers that weren’t that good. For two, plan on paying about $13 at In-N-Out.
Anyway, there’s always been talk of a secret menu at In-N-Out. By a secret menu, I mean ways to order stuff your way. For instance, I order my “Double-Double” minus tomato, plus pickle, and with chopped onion. You can get your burger onion raw sliced, grilled sliced, chopped raw or grilled chopped just for starters. If you look at the “not so secret” menu you will be surprised at how many variations the grill experts will cater to. At any rate, ladies, the In-N-Out is so good that I’ve actually been in valet at Bellagio behind limos with passengers emerging with sacks and sacks of these delectable burgers. So you must try them . The closest In-N-Out is on Tropicana about 2 miles west Las Vegas Blvd. Check them out at www.in-n-outburger.com
At In-N-Out Burger, quality is everything. That’s why in a world where food is often over-processed, prepackaged and frozen, In-N-Out makes everything the old fashioned way.
Our commitment to quality starts with our hamburgers. We make them from fresh, 100% pure beef. They are free of additives, fillers and preservatives of any kind. But the focus on quality starts well before we deliver our hamburger patties to our stores. We own and operate a world class patty making facility. Since we only serve burgers, fries and drinks, making a high quality hamburger patty is everything to us.
We have always made every one of our hamburger patties ourselves using only whole chucks from premium cattle selected especially for In-N-Out Burger. We pay a premium to purchase fresh, high quality beef chucks. We individually inspect every single chuck we receive to make sure that it meets our standards. Then our highly skilled, in-house butchers remove the bones. We grind the meat ourselves and make it into patties ourselves. We do all of this in our facility on our property in Baldwin Park, Ca. These steps enable us to completely control the patty-making process and be absolutely certain of the quality and freshness of every patty we make. We’ve always made our hamburger patties this way.
Our commitment to quality doesn’t stop there. Our lettuce is hand-leafed. Our American cheese is the real thing. And we use the plumpest, juiciest tomatoes we can find. All of our ingredients are delivered fresh to our stores. In fact, we don’t even own a microwave, heat lamp, or freezer. We even bake our buns using old-fashioned, slow-rising sponge dough. And we make every burger one at a time, cooked fresh to order.
Of course, what’s a great burger without great fries? At In-N-Out, we know a French fry is only as good as the potato it comes from. That’s why we use the highest grade potatoes and ship them fresh from the farm. Then we cut them right in the store, one potato at a time. And cook them in 100% pure, cholesterol-free vegetable oil. To top it all off, we also make our delicious shakes from real ice cream. We wouldn’t do it any other way. Because when it comes to burgers, fries and shakes, getting fresh is a good thing.
The “SECRET MENU”
You’ve heard the rumors about the super “Secret Menu” well now finally behold, the entire “Secret Menu” revealed in its entirety (so far)…
Animal Style Burger: (The most popular of all “secret Menu” items)
Any burger fried in Mustard, with pickles, grilled onions & Extra spread. (Don’t call it secret sauce)
Any burger wrapped in lettuce instead of a bun.
The Flying Dutchman (The best “snack” on Earth)
2 of our pure beef patties, 2 slices of melted cheese. That’s it. No lettuce, Tomatoes, onions or bun. Just beefy cheesy goodness!
A cheeseburger without the meat patty. Wonderful melted cheese, lettuce, tomatoes & Onions (if you want) with our world famous spread all on a perfectly toasted bun.
Hamburger without the meat patty. Fresh hand leafed lettuce, double tomatoes & Onions (if you want) with our world famous spread all on a perfectly toasted bun. (Formerly known as the “wish burger” as in “I wish there was a burger in this”)
“Double-Meat”, “Triple Meat”…
A multi patty burger with NO CHEESE! Pretty much self explanatory.
2×4, 3×3, 4×4, 4×2, 2×3, etc…
A “2×4″ is a burger with two beef patties and four slices of cheese. The largest available order is a 4×4 (ya sorry no more 100×100’s)
The first number represents meat & the second represents cheese.
So “Meat” x ”Cheese” thus a 4×2 would get you 4 100% all beef patties and 2 slices of cheese. You get the idea here, experiment with the combination that works best for you.
“Well Done”, “Medium Rare”
· Well Done: Cooks the burger longer.
· Medium Rare: Burger is pulled off the grill sooner resulting in a more rare burger.
(*Note all burgers regardless of how you order it will be cooked to an internal temperature of at least 165)
“Extra Toast”, “Light Toast”
· Extra: Toasts the Bun a little bit longer for a crispier bun.
· Light: Pulls the Bun a little bit early for a lighter softer bun.
Fries: “Animal Style”
Our original golden fries topped with melted cheese, perfectly grilled onions & topped with our world famous spread.
Fries: “Light” or “Well”
· Light: French fries cooked a little less than normal.
· Well: French fries cooked a little longer than normal.
Chopped Chilies, Chilies on the side
· Chopped: Gets you hot banana peppers diced and added to your burger.
· Chilies on the side: 2-3 banana peppers prepackaged in the side
The Wonderful World of Onions

· Extra Large: A shake in the “Large” red logoed drink cup.
Rumored Items NOT on the menu…
“Monkey Style”: Sometimes referred to as meat patty on the fries sometimes something else. Either way ordering Monkey style will only get you a funny look or the question “You mean Animal Style”?
On the Sal: Supposedly a side salad type item. Nope, ordering on the sal will only get you an odd look.
Chicken: Sorry no hidden chicken. Only 100% pure beef burgers here.
Bacon: Nope, I know you bacon lovers hate this but bacon actually does not work well with our burgers, nor is it conducive to our cook times or flow of operation. We have tried it before, but it does not work well.
Veggie Patty: After much testing and trying we have never found a veggie patty that meets our strict standards of quality & freshness. You’ll have to stick with the “veggie” or “Grilled Cheese” for now.
20×20, 100×100, etc.: I know what you’re saying “but in 1998 I ordered a 20×20; I know it’s real” While we used to do anything x anything for quality control, speed of service & packaging concerns we no longer make anything larger than a 4×4. (However ordering a 4×4 and 8 flying Dutchmen would allow you to make your own 20×20)
As with anything we will gladly try to accommodate any request you many have so long as it doesn’t pose an interruption to business. We’re always glad to help & make your burger anyway you want. Please note we can NOT take your food items back, yes this includes bacon, and cook it for you or add it to your burger, sorry.
Experiment to find the best combination for you; Most “Secret Menu” items can be combined for example this writer favorite meal is a Double Double Animal Style, All four kinds of onions, Light Toast, Medium Rare; fries well done animal style with an XL Neapolitan shake. Mix it up & every IN-N-OUT trip can be a new & exciting change!
Due to the freshness of our beef, the lack of fillers, preservatives & never having been frozen you may notice the burger is slightly more pink than you are used to, please be assured the burger is still fully cooked to a safe temperature.
