Honeymoon Spot #3: In-N-Out Burger

Location: All over California and parts of Utah and Arizona

If you haven't had an In-N-Out burger...well, I won't even try to describe it. It's amazing.

I was lucky enough to eat a couple last time I was in California, which was six years agoish. AMAZING. There's only five things on the menu - double burger, cheeseburger, hamburger, fries, and shakes & beverages. Oh, WAIT. There's also the SECRET menu. Which isn't even printed in restaurants, you just have to know.

The french fries are strips of potatoes with salt. And that's it. No other weird preservatives/additive junk/whatever. Just potato and salt and fried and delicious.

And the rest of the food is delicious and well-prepared, too - nothing icky or gross or unhealthy for you.

The best part? It's a fast food place. So it's not even that expensive.

It is my personal goal to eat at In-N-Out at least five times while on our honeymoon.

When I want to California with my family sixish years ago, my dad, sister and I spent two hours driving around LA the second night we were there. We had gotten In-N-Out the evening before, and we were all obsessed with it, and we had gotten directions from the dude in the hotel lobby, but we kept getting lost. Over and over again. And, since my dad is the stereotypical man (at least in this regard) who refuses to ask for directions...we eventually pulled over at some other place in LA and bought burgers there. There was chili in them. It was gross. And not of In-N-Out quality.

Also. My dad travels a lot and after we had returned from CA, he was back out in LA a couple of weeks later for business. He came home with paper In-N-Out hats, stickers, and gift certificates for my sister and I. I've been tearing the house apart and can't find the gift certificate. I haven't given up yet!

God, I love In-N-Out. I just recently became a vegetarian and I had so many qualms about giving up In-N-Out burgers. Ack, this is so tempting me!!!
