What a Hamburger's All About

So I didn't have my camera with me this afternoon, but Hubby and I went here for lunch after church:

It was, is, and always will be...EPIC. I love In-N-Out so much. In-N-Out is to California what cheesecake is to New York, what barbecue is to the south, what cheesesteaks are to Philly. It was one of the things I missed most in my 4 years at college in Tennessee and the following almost 4 years living up and down the East Coast.

I always order the same thing, too. Give me a #3 (hamburger with ketchup, mustard, lettuce and tomato; fries; and a drink) with a Diet Coke any day and I can die a happy woman. SO good. Every time I hear their jingle on the radio or TV it makes me smile: "In-N-Out, In-N-Ouuuut...that's what a hamburger's...all about!"

The remnants of my lunch...just look at that condensation :) Pure bliss.

Other fun things about In-N-Out:
- They have a secret menu you can order from, including grilled cheeses, Neapolitan shakes (choc. + vanilla + strawberry layered together), and animal-style fries.
- They are still family owned and operated (out of my hometown, I might add).
- On the bottom of their cups and back of their burger bags there are Bible verse references. Clever way to share one's faith if you ask me :)

If you haven't tried it, you're missing out. Go. Now. Unless of course, you're not on the West Coast - then buy a plane ticket and get your butt out here! :)


  1. Interestingly enough, the family that owns In-N-Out refuses to open a location that is more than one day's drive from their meat processing plant. Now that's something I can approve of. If you feel like making one at home - I suggest you read this:

  2. Thanks for the link! I love Serious Eats :) I appreciate that In-N-Out is committed to using fresh ingredients. Frozen nastiness at other fast food places doesn't cut it.
