Starting out in 1948 as a humble drive-thru burger box, it has developed into an icon for burgers and fast food all over USA’s west coast. At In-N-Out Hollywood on a crazy-busy summer’s day, I experienced another possible meaning behind their name: you order, look around desperately for somewhere to sit, claim it and wait for your number to be called. Then after I ate my burger, I felt so bad with people staring at my place, I took some notes and made for the door. The layout is not dissimilar to your McTypical fast food joint: basic, nonintrusive decor and seating, all very fitting to let you focus on the meal you are sure to devour. I ordered from the Not-So-Secret Menu where I took my Cheeseburger and turned it Animal Style. This consisted of a baked plain burger bun, a mustard cooked beef pattie, American cheese, hand-leafed lettuce, tomato, pickles, ketchup and grilled onions.

“Screw the cab driver who on the way to drop me off kept on ragging on In-N-Out and why I shouldn’t eat meat! Although, the man had a parrot, so who was I to argue at that point in time. Once inside, amidst the calamity of people getting their orders and the tourists not knowing what to get, I managed to weasel a counter seat, claimed it and waited for my number to be called. Bingo! I unwrapped my special package and was immediately blown away with all of the American cheese oozing out. After taking a few snaps I sunk my teeth in. At first it was soft, then you hit the meat and onions and got a wicked crunch. The mustard cooked pattie + grilled onions were filled with a salty awesomeness thats hard to compare to another fast-food chain. However, the pickles were average and could’ve done with some more juiciness. This burger is probably not the highest quality or best thing for you but damn its tasty. Being a stinking hot LA day the air-con was on full blast and ended up making my chips go cold. I ate them all the same but they weren’t memorable. If I wasn’t in a rush I would’ve gladly had another one. Frankly I’d advise most people to go the double or triple if you want to avoid multiple orders. If these guys brought their business Down Under I’d be one of the first people in line. It was like crack damn-it. Thats right I said crack!”


Yeah this burger is prob the best out of all the fast food ones I’ve had around the world.

Next time, make sure you have a four by four animal style. Perfect before getting on a flight home to Melbourne from LAX!
