Besides seeing my amazing family & friends, and visiting the amazing beaches, one of my favorite parts about going back to California is the amazing fast food chain that is In 'N Out Burger.
Now, to some of you In 'N Out is but a legend, for it only exists on the West Coast. So, this post is dedicated to you (poor) souls.
First, you go inside and order yourself one of the items on the menu....or if you're a local you order something from the (not so) secret menu. My usual order consists of animal fries, a protein burger and a Neapolitan shake. But for old times sake and the sake of everything classic, I got the double double cheeseburger with fries but kept the twist with my favourite Neapolitan shake (aka a mix of their vanilla, chocolate and strawberry milkshakes).
After patiently waiting for your food to be ready, you jump at the call of your number and run to grab your buns.
*This should tell you a little something about how incredible the food is because usually I'm able to hold off for a photo opp but...no....never could I ever for my In 'N Out burger.
My family, being the locals that they are (and used to have heaven a stone's throw away from their house) took more time to eat theirs. Thank goodness they did otherwise this would an even shorter post.
Oh yeah, and the beaches as well. Those are pretty nice too...
