The most well-known secret menu item is "Animal Style". Order
any burger animal style and they will fry up your onions and
slap on some thousand island dressing. Plus they grill the
burger with mustard.
Agent Jacobs' assessment: "This burger is not for the faint of
heart - it's large, messy but oh so good! I would highly
recommend this burger to any true burger lover."
This is a triple burger. A triple monstrocity of meat, for those
of you who don't care to burden yourself with that unnecessary
Agent Truppa: "It was everything we’ve come to know and love of
this great burger establishment X 3!! What a great burger!! I
have to admit, that I may not be able to eat fast food again for
another 16 months after devouring the 3X beast, but what a
fabulous way to over-indulge!!"
|3 x 3 (3 burgers,
3 slices of cheese)
This is a big burger for those with a big appetite. I should
have done a little more homework in recruiting - I felt
downright bad for giving this dainty woman a 3x3 to eat! She did
a pretty good job of it, save for a few bites for her dog.
Agent Shiraishi: "all the cheese stays in the wrapper and the
meat is more than a regular size woman would want to eat, so it
was good the cheese melts into the wrapper…but just the same the
bites I took were great!"
...she was a good sport. She
probably paid for it that night.
The Flying Dutchman is the poor man's burger: 2 patties, and 2
pieces of cheese, nothing else. Eat it with your own greasy
hands, as a constant reminder that these burgers, while
delicious, are probably not very good for you.
Agent Hill was equal parts amused and disgusted with this order.
He ordered another burger on the side - probably because he was
gonna be damned if this equated to his lunch.

Protein Style is pretty much a burger, but with lettuce instead
of a bun. If you are on the Atkins diet, this is what you want.
Agent Truppa's report out: "I think ordering double double
protein style defeats the purpose of health factor, but it was
yummy!!! I really enjoyed it and may even order it again! The
lettuce was crispy and since lettuce retains water, it actually
made the burger seem more juicy. It was nice that I didn't have
a soggy bun towards the end also. So all in all I really enjoyed
That baby was eyeing that
burger... next time Aggent Truppa will have to order two!

The wish burger is supposedly a veggie burger. No meat, just a
few fat tomatoes instead.
Agent Learoyd had to abort this mission after the rookie cashier
gave him a quizzical look as to what a wish burger is. Either
that, or they told him it was probably a veggie burger and Agent
Learoyd decided to get a double double instead! (Wise choice)
|2 x 4
A 2 x 4 is 2 patties, 4 slices of cheese. In-N-Out will make and
"X by Y" type of burger you order. Some
polite gentleman even
ordered a 20 x 20 once and ate it all (100
x 100 has been done a few times).
Agent Story was perplexed by this monstrocity but ate it anyway.
"That's a lot of cheese" he told me. I told him we were only
paying him $6 for the meal, and we're not covering the
Did you know you can order your burger with chopped chilis on
it? This is the ticket for heartburn express.
Agent Ruggles will do anything for free food, even if that means
having to by some Tums on the way home. I hope she ate it and
not that baby... could you imagine what the diaper would look
A Veggie Burger is just a burger without the meat.
Agent Hy was a double agent! We had a few no-shows at the event
so he proudly sacrificed himself for the team and ordered
another item, the trooper that he is. This agent is a true
Agent Hy's assessment: "The taste was decent and it's the same
as any another fast foods veggies burgers."
The grilled cheese is a burger with lots of cheese and no meat.
This burger is popular with picky kids that don't like burgers.
Agent Burrell was happy to eat the grilled cheese, but not very
happy to be referred to as an Angry Smurf. He's more of a
mellow, easy-goin' smurf.
Style / Gorilla Style
Code Name: Gamma
"Gorilla Style" is rumored to exist but the cashiers did not
know what this is. They will gladly make anything you ask for
though. For the record, "monkey style" (also referred to as
"gorilla style") is a burger with animal fries in the middle of
it. If you ask my kids however, they will tell you that's a
banana with a peel on it (as opposed to sliced in to pieces).
Agent Taylor had to abort this mission! Perhaps he was too
embarrassed to order a burger "monkey style".

|Fries, No Salt
French Fries, sans salt.
Agent Callahan's assessment: "for this fry lover, all I can say
is “BLEK!” The truth be told….I ate five fries with the no salt,
and then I gave in and promptly added a few sprinkles of the
white stuff just to liven things up in the taste arena. I’m not
a salt-a-holic by any means, but I missed my flavor, ya know?"
Couldn't have said it any better myself. French fries need salt!
Order up these fries "light" and they will come to you a little
on the uncooked side.
Agent Hy enjoyed these fries. "The fries light are intend for
under cook and I love it. It's soft like coming out from a
microwave. There weren't a lot of oil in the fries which are
good a thing"
Animal Fries are a bit of an atrocity of you ask me. Take a
perfectly good basket of fries and muck it up with animal
Don't let the In-N-Out employees fool you in to thinking this
truly is a "secret menu" item. Order it to go in the drive thru
and they'll serve it up in an
"animal fries" box. Way to bow down to the Man.
|Fries Well Done
Order your fries "well done" and they will leave them in the
cooker just a bit longer. you mileage may vary, as they
sometimes taste just like regular fries. I once ordered them and
they kind of taste like
Agent Felts was well prepared for this mission and
documented her journey. The verdict? "A little crunchier and
French fries, with cheese on it.
This freeloader took my $6 and failed to report out. Ungrateful

You can get any kind of shake, as long as it has vanilla,
chocolate, or strawberry in it. This has all three, for those of
you who feel chocolate is too rich, vanilla is too boring, and
strawberry is too pink.
Agent Callahan: " I really enjoyed this shake - you could taste
all 3 flavors at different times, moving the straw around the
cup. It was a great combination. I will definitely order this

I pulled up the rear in this mission, as we had a few people who
decided that the weren't tough enough to complete a mission of
eating free In-N-Out. That's the breaks. So...
I drink your milkshake!
A root beer float is just what it sounds like: root beer and
vanilla shake in it. It was pretty tasty, and I'd get it again!
Webmaster's note: many of you were wondering how the heck I came
up with these code names. They were rather random and really
depended on what was on TV on the time or rattling around in my
brain. In retrospect, some of the names were rather odd. Denim?
In-N-Out is now located at 225 Placerville Road, Folsom.
