What could be the quintessential food related to the Oscars that took place yesterday? Well, it does take place in Los Angeles, CA, and some of the articles mention that the stars go straight to this establishment after the Oscars. That is In-N-Out Burgers! Here is some history about the restaurant from their website. The chain store has a surprisingly rich history. The 1st store was opened in 1948 by Harry Snyder as California’s first drive-thru hamburger stand. Harry would pick out all the fresh ingredients himself. Soon after, he invents a unique two-way speaker box to have better customer experience when ordering drive-thru. Unfortunately, the chain has not yet reached the Mid-West or East Coast of the US. The stores are opened all throughout California, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, and some places in Texas.
So what makes In-N-Out Burgers so special? Watch this passionate explanation from Anthony Bourdain himself, claiming In-N-Out burger as his “favorite restaurant in LA”!
What I’ve personally found is that their customer service is like no other fast-food establishment. The employees are all so energetic, passionate about what they are doing, and don’t give off even a slightest feeling of being there against their will. The burgers and fries are absolutely delicious and fresh, and the menu is so simple. I have personally been to many different In-N-Outs, and the level of service and food quality does not change, whether it be at the airport, or in the middle of a suburban town.
If you have never experienced In-N-Out Burgers before, it is so worth a trip to California to try. Order the burger the way you like, and also with Animal style. You can ask for animal style on fries too! Don’t ask questions, just trust me on this one.
