Does In-N-Out Burger Offer Vegetarian Options?

For those living on the West Coast, In-N-Out Burger reigns supreme when it comes to fast food burgers. The chain uses fresh, never frozen beef patties for its burgers and real potatoes for its french fries. It also has a smaller menu selection than some of its fast food competitors, like McDonald's or Wendy's, as a way to ensure the highest quality products are being made. The main menu only offers its signature burger, cheeseburger, double-double burger, fries, and three flavors of shakes.

In-N-Out's not-so-secret, secret-menu is where things get interesting. The chain published some of the most popular secret items, like the 4X4 burger made with four patties and slices of cheese. One of the most well-known secret items is getting burgers or fries "animal style." Animal Style burgers are brushed with mustard before cooking, while Animal Style fries are covered in special sauce, grilled onions, and melted American cheese. Those who either can't have or don't want the bun can order their burger protein style, which leaves the burger patty wrapped in lettuce instead of a bun (per In-N-Out).

The secret menu doesn't end there, with the chain offering other unique items like patties for your pooch, and even vegetarian options.

No veggie burgers here, but one cheesy option

Lest vegetarians think that In-N-Out Burger has no offerings on its burger-centric menu, there indeed are. For those who don't eat meat, ordering a grilled cheese should be filed under things you need to know before eating at In-N-Out. All you have to do is ask for grilled cheese and let the employees do the rest. A grilled cheese contains everything that is on the regular burger (onions, lettuce, tomato, special sauce) in between two slices of melted American cheese. If you're seeking to be completely meat-free, you should order raw onions, as the grilled onions share a cooktop with the burgers (via Veggl).

For those customers who don't want a burger, there is a way to hack the menu to make a salad. According to Wonder How To, you can ask for a side or extra lettuce, tomatoes, and onions and assemble the salad yourself. Once you have the extra veggies, you can add the spread as a makeshift dressing, and voila, you've got yourself a side salad. If eating healthy isn't your primary concern, you can also order a side of fries for a fresh kick of fried taters!
