Ya lookin' for trouble?
...as if a Double-Double at In-N-Out Burger wasn't bad enough.
As we were walking in to the restaurant, T-Bear mentioned that you could get smothered fries. She described it as fries with grilled onions, cheese, and their house spread. I'm a sucker for any insider lingo -- which is why I like to sometimes order my burger "animal style" -- so I walked up to the cute cashier (this is the Pinole In-N-Out for you cashier stalkers out there) and ordered a burger, soda, and smothered fries.
"...the what-fries?" she asked.
"Uhh...smothered?" I answered, quickly looking around for T-Bear who had already placed her order and was conveniently too far away for me to yell at.
"...do you mean animal-style fries?" the cashier wondered hoping to set me straight.
"O-k." I answered doing my best Brian-Regan-stupid-face.
So how were the fries? Not pretty, but de-freakin'-icious. ...in one heaping fork-load I had effectively cancelled out all the brown rice, veggies, and chicken breast I had been eating all week.
UPDATE: more on the secret menu
