In 'N Out - "Secret Menu" ... Not so secret? - dfrnt: Here & Now.
 
While perhaps not worthy of being current U.S. News, In ‘N Out’s “secret” menu is definitely news-worthy and obviously current if you’re thus far unaware of it.  If usual menu items are of no appeal to you, some unusual selections might be.  Beginning after enough people ordered specialty items often enough, a “secret” menu was established but has become more and more well-known with media and even the company itself focusing on it, having published a few of the “secret” possibilities on their website, though leaving many to spread through word-of-mouth.  While it is perhaps never fully complete, here’s what I could find:

Animal style burgers – perhaps the most popular of the secret menu items, animal style burgers contain the usual toppings, but in addition have mustard fried onto each meat patty, pickles, extra spread, and extra grilled onions, giving it an extra zing.

Animal style fries – regular French fries in a container, topped with melted cheese, grilled onions, and spread, to be eaten with a fork.

Protein style burgers – full of plenty of lettuce for veggie lovers, protein style burgers have lettuce instead of a hamburger bun.

Flying Dutchman burgers – eaten without a bun around two meat patties and two slices of cheese, other condiments available on request to be added.

Double meat burgers – Basically two meat patties with no cheese, differing from a double-double which contains two meat patties and two slices of cheese, which leads us to…

3x3, 4x4, formula “MxC” – M being the amount of meat patties, and C being the amount of cheese, i.e. a 5x3 would be 5 meat patties and 3 cheese slices.

Grilled cheese – just as the name sounds, a grilled cheese is a sandwich containing no meat, and full of gooey cheese, though can be ordered to be topped with other condiments as well.

Veggie burger – again with a giving title, a veggie burger contains only veggies and no meat or cheese; sometimes called a Wish burger.

The sky’s the limit when it comes to requesting other condiments or toppings for any one of your burgers, including a no-salt option, addition of jalapeños, and how toasted you do or don’t want the bun to be.

Fries can be cooked to be well-done, light well, lite, animal style, cheese fries, or no-salt.

As far as custom drinks go, a root beer float is just that, an old fashioned root beer float but needs to be specifically requested.  Along with that, you can order a Neopolitan shake – chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla flavors mixed together, and you can mix up any of the three flavors to make other combinations as well. 

Next time you’re on the road and stop at an In ‘N Out, see what concoctions you can come up with to invent your own, or have something knew off the not-so-secret “secret” menu.
