Double Double "Animal Style," In-N-Out Burger

California to Texas

"I like that they make this not-so-secret off-menu order sound so insane, but also that they can replicate it so perfectly at so many places – from California to Texas," Motz says. The chain, beloved by westerners (and 'Big Lebowski' fans), is known for its freshly ground, never-frozen beef; a semi-sweet, toasted bun; tangy Thousand Island sauce; and super fresh lettuce, tomatoes, and onions, all sourced from the same farms for half a century. Order its double-double "animal style" and the cooks will sub out raw onion rings for caramelized chopped onions, more pickles, and the patties get fried with mustard right on the flattop. "It's a thing of beauty," says Motz of the nifty lo-fi technique that fries mustard flavor right into the burger.
