Burger Joint
$
“Okay, so I know that everyone knows about In-N-Out Burger (it's a California staple) but I'm adding it here to make an order recommendation off of their "Secret Menu." I'd order a "Double Double - Animal Style - with Chopped chillis" Animal style is where they grill the burger in mustard and add grilled onions and pickles - it's outrageous. The chilies are a bit spicy, so don't order them if you're not a spice fan. Also order a side of Animal Style fries (which is basically fries with cheese, grilled onions, and spread). If you're not into bread you could order it "protein style" which means lettuce wrapped. ”
