When anyone mentions In-N-Out, the West Coast burger staple, they rarely seem to think of anything that is actually listed on the menu. The “hidden” menu, which is pretty common knowledge due to the extensive coverage, most popularly features the ability to take your burgers and fries to the next level by ordering them animal-style (grilled onions, pickles, cheese, special sauce). Other options include protein-style (lettuce instead of buns) with a variety of other secret nuances.
Hidden menu items seem to exist at most major chains across the United States, not just In-N-Out. Most restaurants deny their existence with the recipes spreading by word of mouth. There are however, a few chains that have hidden menus with corporate backing such as Panera and Arby’s. We think this removes half the fun. If properly described in your order, most places should be able to create the follow items for you, if you so desire. So here they are folks, the real underground eats of the fast food world:
