There are many great states in our nation, to be sure, but California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, and now Texas are the only ones that can boast in something so delicious that even Thomas Keller considers it great: In-N-Out. (And if you don't know who Thomas Keller is then you better read up on your foodie history.)
As you have probably figured out, I generally say no to fast food. Of course, there are the times when the road is long and the time and money are short and a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do. But most of the time I just pass on by. Except for this place.
If you know what I am talking about then you know what I am talking about.
Seeing as our house guests never in their lives had In-N-Out Burger, my husband and I decided we needed to remedy that. It was now or never since they sure aren't going to be finding any in Austria. They were pretty impressed that the fries were made right then and that the ingredients were all so incredibly fresh. The menu is small and simple, just the way it should be if you've got a good product and they quickly decided on what they wanted.
Double-Double, animal style, on the left for my man, grilled cheese animal-style on the right for the three of us. (I alternate between cheeseburgers and grilled cheese. I like meat, I do, but I also like meat-less meals. This night was meatless.) And then, of course, had to get the fries and a strawberry shake. That's how we do it. It may be a lot of calories on your plate, but those calories taste so good.
And the verdict? "Mmmm!"
(And also, "This place is so American! It is like the movies!" Hahaha!)
Another successful trip. As always. It will probably be another few months before it happens again, but between now and then I will be grateful for the fact that I can share my Californian heritage with the best fast food in town. And quite possibly, the world.
