Why does everybody in Hawaii always say you have to eat at In-N-Out Burger when you’re in the mainland? Who knows, but I kind of felt like I had to, since everyone keeps telling me to.
I know I’ve been living on an island for too long when the list of places I want to eat at on a trip consist of places I’ve seen in TV commercials but could never go to: Olive Garden, Sonic, Joe’s Crab Shack, Cici’s Pizza Buffet, etc.
We were in the Summerlin area, so we stopped for lunch at In-N-Out Burger on our way back. Here are our burgers: Hubby’s Cheeseburger “Animal Style” with grilled onions ($2.05) on the left and my cheeseburger ($2.05) on the right. I made an exception and ate meat because when else would I get to eat at In-N-Out, right?
Hubby’s Fries “Animal Style” ($3.25) topped with cheese, grilled onions and thousand island sauce, and my regular Fries ($1.35) in the back of that.
This “Animal Style” is one of those things on the secret menu that makes those in the know feel special, I guess. Much like the “Gummie Bear” smoothies at Jamba Juice (nothing more than a marketing ploy, if you ask me). Hubby loves secret menus.
The burgers are fresh, tasty and cheap. I thought I was a die-hard McDonald’s fan until now, but if I had a choice between McDonald’s and In-N-Out, I’d definitely go with In-N-Out. Now I’m sad we don’t have one in Hawaii… But I guess that’s part of what makes it so special.
