In-N-Out Burger - Legendary Burger Chain in Las Vegas

Intro

About.com Rating 4.5 Star Rating

By

In-N-Out Burger has long been a Las Vegas staple, and for good reason. It has a simple philosophy, to do burgers and to do them right. Family owned, In-N-Out Burger is one of those legends of the West that to me, and to any who have partaken in their simple yet fabulous food, that ranks up their with Billy the Kid.

Without fail when friends and family come to Las Vegas, especially those from the East Coast where sadly In-N-Out is unknown, they demand that we make a stop by one of the Las Vegas Locations.

What's Good

What's Bad

Guide Review

Having been an Easterner my whole life I had no idea what In-N-Out Burger was about. My first experience was just hours after I arrived in the Valley after a marathon 38 hours of straight driving with my sister. I was beginning a new life in a new city and it was deemed necessary by my Las Vegas friends that my first culinary experience should be In-N-Out Burger.

For those well versed in the greatness of In-N-Out, those who order off the secret menu by memory, it may be difficult to remember your first time. For me it was nothing short of a conversion, a revelation if you will. As we pulled into the parking lot my grumpy face immediately took over. What the heck was this yellow and red 1950's era sign out front? For my first Vegas meal my friends were taking me to a fast food joint that made McDougal's from Coming To America look like fine dining? Perhaps it was lack of sleep making me snippy, but I'm sure I was acting like a five year old. That was until I walked in and the smell hit me square in the nose.

My buddy saw my slack jaw and ordered for me, "a double with fries, Animal style" (swimming in cheese and onions) and sat me down amidst the red and white pristine tables before teaching me, like a down home preacher, about the greatness that is and forever will be In-N-Out Burger. Now I don't really remember my first time. It is all a swirl of wondrous images, kinda like those early Christmas mornings, but I sure remember the hundreds of times I've gone since. And so will you.
