To begin with I actually don’t really care for In-N-Out Burger. The grilled onions give me heartburn, the fries are too dry and they never have any Sprite; but in spite of the imperfections, I still love going there. I remember when In-N-Out came to Orem, Utah. Everyone raved about it and waited hours in line for a Double-Double sandwich, Animal fries and Neapolitan shake. Playing along, I decided it was cool too, until one day I realized, I always felt gross after eating there. So “Why?” you may ask, do I claim loving In-N-Out at all? Because of the atmosphere.
The place is always open and it’s rarely as sketch as Mickey D’s. My favorite part would have to be that it’s squeaky clean! Now, don’t get me wrong, McDonald’s and all the other places are generally clean too, but I don’t know, it’s something about the shiny red and white tiles and sunny palm trees that make In-N-Out shine. When midnight rolls around and we’re all in the mood for a last-minute hangout, we don’t think Taco Bell, we say In-N-Out all the way! We’ll crowd into a row of tables and chairs and wait for our meal numbers to be called. I admit that besides the heartburn and dry fries, I’ve come to like 7-UP, and ordering a #1 without onions usually does the trick, while animal style solves the grainy potato problem. If there’s one thing I do love to eat at In-N-Out it’s the chocolate shakes. So all in all, that’s why I love In-N-Out Burger: it’s clean. Oh and next time I go, I’m totally trying Beka’s recipe for Mormon Jungle Juice:
1/3 pink lemonade
2/3 sprite or 7-UP
1 juiced lemon
1 lemon dropped in the juice
