Native Californians know that In-N-Out is a must whenever those burger pangs kick in. Whether its the fresh ingredients or the addicting fries, once you crave it there's nothing you can do until you get your fill. Part of the appeal of the chain is that they keep the menu simple, with three burger options, shakes and fries. Secret menu not withstanding. What if, however, In-N-Out tweaked their menu just a bit and expanded their burger options?
so much time on our hands journalistic curiosity, we imagined what it would look like if In-N-Out took over other fast food chains to create burger collaborations. Using In-N-Out's core ingredients as a template with a signature customization for each new burger, we let our cravings take over.
In-N-Out x McDonald's Big Mac
More or less the same as a double double, save the addition of pickles and that famous extra layer of bread. I mean, what's a Big Mac without that burger bun in the middle.
In-N-Out x Tommy Burger
Known for their world-famous chili, just a simple spoonful of the stuff is enough to crank a Double Double up to an 11. What do you mean your dials only go up to 10?
In-N-Out x Carl's Jr. Guac Burger
A California inspired burger, the burger needs a generous helping of guacamole to truly be called Californian. There should be a second patty somewhere under all that guac.
In-N-Out x Jack in the Box's Sourdough Jack
The bacon and the sourdough bun. Two signature staples of the famous Sourdough Jack. Sure it's messy, but the best burgers always are.
In-N-Out x Chick-fil-A's Spicy Chicken
Chick-fil-A's Spicy Chicken sandwich is pretty bomb on its own. Though let's say one were to add it to an In-N-Out cheeseburger. I'm drooling just staring at the picture.
In-N-Out x Carl's Jr. Western BBQ Bacon Burger
No matter where you go, the three things you think of most when hearing Western Burger is BBQ sauce, onion rings and bacon. If there isn't a noticeable crunch when you bite into a Western, you're ordering the wrong burger.
In-N-Out x Jollibee Amazing Aloha Burger
Pineapples and honey mustard dressing makes for a pretty damn sweet burger. Should taste amazing with a salty order of fries well done. Just make sure the pineapple's fresh.
In-N-Out x White Castle
It's a square burger. On the plus side, you can eat them in pairs without having to travel to the East Coast.
In-N-Out x Burger King Whopper
Though you wouldn't expect it, pickles, ketchup and mayo can really turn a burger into a Whopper. The second that mayo and ketchup mix together after a bite...you've got yourself a fancy sauce situation you can't put down.
In-N-Out x McGangBang
We also wanted to see what some lesser known creations would look like. Take the McGangBang for example, a double burger with a crispy chicken patty thrown inside.
In-N-Out x Ramen Burger
How dope would it be if In-N-Out made a Ramen Burger? We know ramen burgers haven't hit mainstream fast food yet, but we just had to see what it would look like. We are pleased.
