gourmet fast food?

On a recent vacation to Nevada, I had the opportunity to try a much-raved-about chain restaurant. While I usually do not frequent this type of cuisine, I was excited to make an exception for an assumedly exceptional locale.

While returning from the Hoover Dam, I dined at In-N-Out Burger.

The spread

I entered armed with advice from In-N-Out veterans J. and M. Their recommendations included animal-style fries and a vanilla milkshake.

Mainly out of curiosity, I also ordered a burger.

The burger

Needless to say, the fries were the hit of the afternoon. Since I preferred the regular ones, it was a relief that L. fell in love with animal-style.  It was also refreshing to read about the freshly peeled potatoes, despite the required squinting to read the words through the leftover animal-style grease tracks on the cardboard carton.

The aftermath

Oh, the vanilla milkshake was my favorite.  Unfortunately it was so covetable, it was un-photographable.

Happy customers

Everyone loves an In-N-Out burger.
