Local Friday: In-N-Out Burger
There are so many fun restaurants and shops convenient to Daybreak Utah. South Jordan is a growing city and many restaurants and businesses are adding new franchises in this area. Today for 'Local Friday' I wanted to give a shout out to one of my all time favorites, In-N-Out Burger! I know, I know it has kind of become one of those iconic pit stops for road trips to California, but beyond that I just really like their food. They have 4.1 stars on Urban Spoon which is a good rating for fast food. When this West Coast chain announced they would be coming to Utah a few years ago, I was pretty excited. If you live in Daybreak, you have probably noticed there is an In-N-Out Burger just south of Daybreak on Bangerter Highway.
This last week, KSL posted a fun article about the 'secret menus' at Utah restaurants. One of the fun parts about the In-N-Out culture is the secret menu options. The menu posted at the restaurant is fairly simple and has just a few choices. Which is actually great for people that just like your standard burger and fries. The secret menu is kind of fun though, I think we all know about the option to order 'animal style' which is fry sauce and grilled onions. But here are a few tips courtesy of KSL on how to get a little more creative with options from In-N-Out Burger's secret menu. Just don't blame me if you end up there for lunch! ~Natalie
Celeste’s Order: Hamburger with grilled onions, animal-style fries and Neapolitan milkshake. (Went back later for the grilled cheese.)
Thoughts: For journalism, I avoided thinking about the very real possibility of having a heart attack during lunch and ate this meal. While the In-N-Out menu and its animal-style topping is “not so secret,” the Neapolitan shake and grilled cheese were new to me.
I used a fork for decorum and to keep my cheese, grilled onions and In-N-Out spread off my shirt, but these fries were messy. As the melted cheese began to cool, the entire carton of fries stuck together, creating a challenge. All that said, this was the first time I was really excited while eating In-N-Out fries. Top them with fat and calories, and apparently I’m in.
Meantime, the super-thick Neapolitan shake softened to a slurp-able state. And it was delicious. I may never go back to a plain chocolate shake again.
The grilled cheese was served on In-N-Out’s delicious buns and I topped it with its sauce and grilled onions. The combination was gooey and delicious and buttery.
Recommend It? In good conscience, I can’t tell you to eat all this at the same time, but I can recommend them individually. The fries were worth the mess and the shake was like sipping my favorite childhood ice cream. I ordered it again when I went back on Friday night for dinner. The grilled cheese was a nice no-meat option on which the grilled onions really stood out.
John's Order: Double-Double Animal-Style, cheese fries and root beer float.
Thoughts: Now I know that most of you are saying to yourselves, 'Duh, everyone knows about In-N-Out's secret menu.' Well, that's not true. When I picked up the order the man next to me looked at it and said, 'What is that?' as he slipped on the floor that had become wet from his uncontrollable salivating brought on by envy, not rabies.
The burger was solid, obviously, and the cheese fries were good. The only problem is once the cheese cools it's not quite as tasty. Truth is I was just coveting Celeste's Animal-Style fries. The root beer float was good and was more of a root beer shake than a float.
Recommend it? Of course. If you've never tried animal style you have to give it a shot on both your fries and your burger. Opt for the animal style fries over the cheese fries however. Don't fall into the same ugly covetous cycle I did. The root beer float was a nice little option, but with all of that I needed a long nap.
