SAN ANTONIO - The SA Living producers were in Dallas for a movie premiere and to interview the actor. His name and movie were of no concern to others on staff. They heard "Dallas" and thought "IN-N-OUT." They told us we had to go, so we did.
People were going crazy for the food. Traffic was a mess. Security was helping people find parking. The drive-thru was four lanes wide and backed up to the street.
We waited outside under a tent for a few minutes, snapping pictures of the craziness.
True to the name, we were in and out. They had what seemed like 50 cooks in the kitchen. I guess the simple menu helps. You can get a burger, a double burger, fries and a drink.
The food was fresh. It had to be. They were dishing out burgers just as fast as they could slice the tomatoes.
The food was good. My favorite part was actually the bun. It was soft, but didn't fall apart. It was just enough bread to hold in the meat, cheese, lettuce, tomato and onion. Yes, I like it all the way.
The food was tasty. The secret burger sauce, called Spread, was a nice touch. It's similar to Thousand Island dressing, something I don't normally put on my burger.
We did not try the fries. They looked like fries. I never heard anyone rave about the IN-N-OUT Burger fries, so I decided not to waste calories on them. If you go, ask for the secret sauce on the fries. I saw it walk by and thought about asking for a bite. Wikipedia has a list
of the secret menu variations, like "Animal Style."
