“If you're not from California and you've heard about In-N-Out and never tried it, go for it. It really is as good as everyone says. They don't show the "animal style" burger on the menu but ask for it. It's the secret menu item that everyone raves about. There will probably be a big line (it's a drive through but you can also park and walk up to the window) but it moves very quickly. ”
