What In-N-Out Burgers Would Look Like If Other Restaurants Made Them


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?

With 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.

Sorry, pretty much all of those are nausea inspiring to me. Too much crap piled between buns. The best burger is a simple patty of good quality meat, fried or grilled, a thin slice of onion, *perhaps* a couple pickle slices, a couple leaves of lettuce – not shredded and condiments [I favor catsup alone, but if you like thousand island dressing go for it.] I don’t need foie gras, extra patties, more glop and half the refrigerator dumped on top.

I agree. When you get a burger, you want to actually TASTE the meat. Although I’d definitely hit that guac burger. I like avocado on just about everything, even grilled cheese. But that’s ALL that would be on there – just the meat and the guac.

But this new trend of trying to make the craziest burger possible is getting rather old. They’re basically using a classic American sandwich for their own silly ideas, turning it into a monstrosity by piling on whatever ingredient they assume sounds good at the time.

This day and age we can honestly and truthfully ask, “Where’s the beef?”
