Not So Fast
February 21, 2020
Your first time in an In-N-Out Burger restaurant, you might think the menu looks rather simple. (By the way, that was one of the original ideas behind Wendy's - to have a simple menu to cut down on inventory. They came up with chili as a way to use up aging burgers. Boy, have they gotten away from that original idea! 🤣)
But In-N-Out has a "secret menu" that allows you to enhance your experience should you so choose. Given that I have entered the "In-N-Out Burger Zone," I figured I should polish up on my knowledge of the secret menu. There are more options than I realized! Not sure I'll go for "animal style" but the "wish burger" and "protein style" both look like winners!
