Here is a complete list of In-N-Out secret menu items. There are very few menu items at In-N-Out but for what they lack in menu options they make up for with an abundance of the best secret menu items and hacks.
In-N-Out Secret Menu Items
Secret Menu Burgers & Hacks
Two 100% American beef patties, hand-leafed lettuce, tomato, spread, with or without onions, stacked high on a freshly baked bun.
3×3 aka Triple Triple
Pronounced as ‘three by three’ this burger includes three 100% American beef patties, hand-leafed lettuce, tomato, spread, three slices of American cheese, with or without onions, stacked high on a freshly baked bun.
4×4 aka Quad Quad
Pronounced as ‘four by four’ this burger includes four 100% American beef patties, hand-leafed lettuce, tomato, spread, four slices of American cheese, with or without onions, stacked high on a freshly baked bun. If you’re hoping for a 6×6 or even 100×100 you’re out of luck. In-N-Out put a max of 4×4 on their burgers after receiving (agreeing to) a few requests for 100x100s.
Your favorite burger wrapped in hand-leafed lettuce instead of a bun.
Animal Style Burger
Burger of your choice with hand-leafed lettuce, tomato, a mustard cooked beef patty (a squirt of mustard is added to the patty and cooked); add pickle, extra spread, with grilled onions.
Monkey Style Burger aka Gorilla Style
This burger is a myth that originated from an internet hoax. However, it can still be a DIY hack by ordering a burger and animal style fries (see below) and adding the fries to the middle of the burger.
Mustard Grilled Patty
This is slimmed down version on Animal Style with your favorite burger with a squirt of mustard added to the patty and cooked on the grill.
A Flying Dutchman is a legendary ghost ship which was said to never be able to make port, doomed to sail the oceans forever. At In-N-Out, it’s two beef patties sandwiched around two slices of American cheese. That’s it but you can ask for extra toppings if you desire. Legend has it In-N-Out’s version came from their Dutch founder Harry Snyder, who love eating this “burger.”
Scooby-Doo! loved Scooby Snacks and many items have been named after these dog treats since. Including graham crackers, cocktails and even an In-N-Out menu item. This secret menu item is just one beef burger patty, that’s it.
Think of this as a Scooby Snack without salt which as the name implies is a salt-less beef patty for your dog. Humans can eat it too.
Veggie Burger aka Wish Burger
This “burger” is a misnomer as it doesn’t contain a burger. Instead it consists of a toasted bun with In-N-Out spread, lettuce, tomato, and fresh onion. To make it vegan, remove the spread and add ketchup and mustard. To make it spicy add whole or chopped yellow chilis (hint: not listed on the menu). A grilled cheese burger (see below) is another vegetarian option.
Medium Rare & Well-Done
Unlike many fast food burger restaurants In-N-Out allows you to order any burger as medium rate or well-done.
Extra Salt or No Salt
This super simple menu hack just adds extra salt to the burger patty and alternatively you can request no salt burgers.
In-N-Out will wrap your burger (and condiments) in separate packages so you can reheat and assemble when you reach your destination.
Onions for any burger can be ordered as fresh sliced (default), raw chopped, grilled chopped, and whole grilled onions.
Only animal style offers pickles on your burger but they’ll gladly add pickles to your burger upon request.
Double Toasted or Non-Toasted Bun
Ask for your buns to be double toasted for more crisp or non-toasted for a spongy texture.
Everybody has different tastes and if you don’t want melted cheese in your burger, you can order cold cheese.
For no extra charge you can ask for extra tomatoes, extra lettuce, extra onion, extra spread (comes in packs!), extra pickles, extra onions, extra chilis. This can be on the hamburger or on the side.
Cut In Half
Whether for two kids or just looking to cut down on calories In-N-Out will cut any burger in half.
Secret Menu Fries & Hacks
Animal Style Fries
If an animal style burger sounds good you’ll love animal style fries. Animal style includes the normal fries except they are covered in cheese, their special spread, and grilled onions. You can also ask for a second paper dish, flip them upside down for “Upside Down” Animal Style Fries.
Not surprisingly with a name like roadkill fries not all In-N-Outs recognize this secret menu item. These fries are animal style fries plus hamburger crumbled on top. If the location is unfamiliar with this item simply order animal fries and a Scooby Snack (solo hamburger patty) and self-crumble the meat on top.
Well-Done Fries (or Fries Light)
Fries well-done are extra crispy fries and fries light are are a little more done than regular fries, but not as crispy or greasy as the well-done fries. In-N-Out will take both these requests.
You can also order melted American chees on your fries.
Well-Done Cheesy Fries
The next obvious menu modification here is to order your fries well done (or light) and cheesy.
This is DIY hack but simply ask for lemon and pepper on the side if you’re at the drive-thru or grab the condiments yourself while inside and add to your fries.
Miscellaneous Secret Menu Items & Hacks
Two slices of melted American cheese, hand-leafed lettuce, tomato, spread, with or without onions on a freshly baked bun.
The “side salad” is Double Double wrapper full of lettuce and a tomato along with their special spread as dressing.
You can add a side, whole or chopped yellow Cascabella chili peppers to anything including on top of or grilled into your burger, or on your fries.
At In-N-Out you can order a traditional chocolate, vanilla, or strawberry shake. Can’t decide? You don’t have to, alternatively you can order a Neapolitan shake which swirls all three flavors together.
Black & White Shake
This is a vanilla and chocolate shake.
Large or Extra Large Shake or Split Shake
You can order a large shake in a medium cup or ask for a split shake for two kids to share. There is no smaller size than a regular shake.
Root Beer Float or Any Soda Float
If you ask for a Root Beer float you’ll get a vanilla shake mixed with root beer. They’ll also happily add any soda to your float.
Monkey Style Milkshake
Simply order fries and vanilla shake and dip your fries in the shake for a tasty combination of saltiness and sweetness.
Arnold Palmer aka Tea Ade
This is DIY menu hack but combine In-N-Out’s famous pink lemonade (60%) and homemade iced tea (40%) to create an Arnold Palmer.
Another DIY menu modification, a Lemon Up is a mix of their homemade pink lemonade (80%) and 7 Up (20%) to add the carbonization to it.
What’s Not On The Menu Or Secret Menu?
In-N-Out also does not have many of these commonly requested items on either the menu or secretly.
Food (not available): Chicken sandwiches or any type of chicken, corn dogs, hot dogs, onion rings.
Condiments/Toppings (not available): Ranch, barbecue sauce, hot sauce, bacon, chili meat, mushrooms, avocado, mayonnaise.
Drinks (not available): Oreo shakes, bottled water, light pink lemonade, Diet Dr Pepper, Coke Zero, Fanta, Mountain Dew, Hi-C, Sprite or Pepsi.
Other (not available): Kids menu, kids burger (burgers can be ordered plain). Plain or dry means all toppings (except cheese, meat, and bun) are removed from the burger.
Sweet Tea is available in some Texas locations but not available in most other locations. Sugar, Splenda or Sweet and Low can be added to any unsweetened tea.
The only add-ons that cost more are extra meat and extra cheese. That also means an animal fry or cheese fry will be more expensive than a regular fry.
In-N-Out calls it spread not Thousand Island, sauce, special sauce, homestyle sauce, secret sauce, In-N-Out sauce, burger sauce, fry sauce, mayonnaise, etc.
In-N-Out calls it animal style not buffalo style, American style, jungle style, extra style, animalized, etc.
In-N-Out calls them chili’s not jalapenos, banana peppers, yellow peppers, sport peppers, peppercinis, habanero peppers, etc. They can be called Cascabella peppers since that is what they are.
There is only one size of fries.
More About In-N-Out
In-N-Outs Special Sauce
In-N-Out doesn’t list the ingredients for its spread but many internet sleuths and food afficianado’s believe it’s a combination of Thousand Island-style sauce made from ketchup, mayonnaise, and sweet pickle relish.
Bible References on Cups and Wrappers
The soda cups cite John 3:16, the milkshake cups bear mention to Proverbs 3:5, and the water cups are stamped with John 14:6. Even the burger wrappers and the French fry trays reference a verse in an inconspicuous spot.
To Go, For Here or Eating In Your Car?
To go comes in a bag and for here or in your car comes in a box with an optional lid.
In-N-Out Burger has been a privately owned family business since it’s inception. Lynsi Snyder is the company’s billionaire owner and grand-daughter of the founders.
In-N-Out Franchise Opportunities
None of the units are franchised! In-N-Out has never announced plans to pursue franchises or a public offering.
Burger Trailers aka Cookout Trucks
In-N-Out Cookout Trucks will come to you for any event.
In-N-Out Menu Changes
In-N-Out rarely changes the menu. The last change was in 2018 when they added hot cocoa and 15 years before that they added lemonade.
