In-N-Out Burger

Driving along a busy street in California you might spot In-N-Out Burger. The drive through lines are often backed up with 20 cars waiting. In-N-Out Burger is amazingly good because everything is fresh. The secret to making this is to get the patty real thin, 1/4 inch or less. At the drive through, you can order onions grilled for your burger.
