The In-N-Out Secret Menu Fries You Might Not Know

If you live near the West Coast, you've probably had some In-N-Out before. Opened in 1948, this hamburger joint puts an emphasis on quality ingredients and excellent customer service, and they take pride in the fact that they still "don't freeze, pre-package, or microwave [their] food" (via In-N-Out). Their "cooked fresh to order" burgers are delicious, as are their fries and shakes, and they better be, because those are the only things you can order on the menu. 

This famously simple menu features only burgers (with or without cheese, double or single patty), fries, and shakes (vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry). Part of the appeal of In-N-Out, at least to some, is the fact that there's a secret menu where you can really get creative with your order. But some things can't even be found on the secret menu, which means you have to get a little creative and make them yourself.

How to order these delicious fries that aren't on the menu

If you've ever visited an In-N-Out and wanted to explore their secret menu, a Protein Style burger or Animal Style fries is a good place to start. Those items are even on their website, which means any location will make them for you. You can also get floats made with their sodas, well-done fries, or a grilled cheese, plus you can add grilled onions, hatch chiles, and a whole host of other options to your burgers. There are a few specific orders that even have names, like the Flying Dutchman (two burger patties with cheese in the middle) or Roadkill fries (Animal Style fries with a Flying Dutchman on top), according to Buzzfeed

However, not all In-N-Out locations will make Roadkill fries anymore. One Reddit user wrote that if you try to oder them, the answer you'll likely receive will probably sound something like, "I'm sorry we aren't able to make those because it may jeopardize our quality. You can order the ingredients separate and add them yourself." So, if you're really hankering for some Roadkill fries, simply order the two components separately and make your own.
