French Fry Diary 351: In-N-Out Burger

One of the places I get the most recommendations to do reviews of their fries for here at French Fry Diary is In-N-Out Burger. The problem is that while In-N-Out is a strictly west coast place, I am strictly an east coast guy. Sigh.

There is good news however. On The Bride's recent west coast excursion she had the chance to visit an actual In-N-Out Burger, and she got all sorts of stuff for me (no food, just giveaway items), and kinda reviewed them by proxy. Isn't she just a sweetheart?

The Bride was hungry and stopped in on her way to Los Angeles from Anaheim after midnight. She was surprised to find them both open and very busy. Almost sounds like White Castle a little.

Not knowing about In-N-Out's secret menu, The Bride just got the standard burger, fries and a drink. She saw others getting melted cheese and other stuff on their fries but didn't see it on the regular menu. She knows why now. Among the fries available from the secret menu include several variations of soft to crispy to extra crispy (almost like meat - light, light well, well, extra well), cheese fries, and the notorious animal fries.

In-N-Out Burger peels (sometimes) and fresh cuts their fries from Kennebec potatoes in house for hot and tasty regular cut French fries. The Bride said her fries were a bit underdone, so I wonder if maybe she said the word 'light' at some point while ordering.

Either way they looked good, and the burger tasted good. Hunger appeased after midnight by the west coast's famous In-N-Out Burger. Maybe I'll get there in person one day.
