When I was planning my trip to Bay Area in California, I only had two places I needed to go to, no matter what it takes.
The Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco
In-N-Out Burger is a fastfood chain in the US with locations in the west coast, and a few branches in Texas. I really didn't know what the fuss is about, so I did a little research.
In-N-Out is a fully family-owned restaurant, which means that all locations are owned by the company, with no franchises until now. In-N-Out is also known for its "secret menu", which can be found on their website. Another thing that In-N-Out is known for is its food quality. I actually saw potatoes being peeled in the store to be made into fries.
We arrived in In-N-Out just outside San Francisco before dinner time, and the queue for the drive thru was outrageous! We ended up dining in and had to wait for a while to find an empty table.
We ordered two 3x3 Burgers ($4.45 each), Animal Style Fries ($3.40) and Soda. 3x3 Burgers have three burger patties, 3 cheese slices, with lettuce, tomato, secret spread, and onions. Animal Style Fries are fries topped with grilled onions, melted cheese and secret spread.
The burgers are not as huge as I expected but it was big enough to keep me full, I ordered a triple-patty anyway. :P
As a fries fanatic, I loved the Animal Style Fries. Fries with cheesy and creamy toppings are difficult to resist. This item is definitely a must-try!
I love trying anything unusual or extraordinary when it comes to food, but In-N-Out is one of those places that remind me that classics still exist for a reason. In-N-Out serves one of the best burgers I have tried.
