My final meal of 2010 was, of course, In-n-Out Burger. I had been planning this meal since I was flying into SFO after visiting the family in Auburn and knew I’d be starving. Since I had to grab a cab anyways (because of me being on crutches), it totally made sense to take a lil’ detour to exit 420 and hit up the Millbrae In-N-Out Burger. Since I was in the cab, I had to eat it in the dark cab, which was interesting to do when you can’t really see what you are doing but it didn’t really matter since I was famished and it tasted damn good! Goodbye 2010! The final stats were 52 burgers eaten – so an average of one per week – not bad! Now to get my cholesterol checked!
Being on the crutches from my accident has been a limiting factor in getting to In-n-Out since I can’t rent cars to drive and mostly I need to be with someone who can carry my food/drinks/etc., but I’ve learned some tricks on the crutches and since I was going to be in the neighborhood, I couldn’t resist a trip!
I knew that I was going to a Holiday Ales party after so a little insulation was perfect – yum!
Oh In-n-Out, how long has it been? Too long!
After shooting down at the Sofitel, Zoe and I were driving back up to SF and I knew we’d be stopping at In-n-Out Burger from the day I accepted the assignment. Since I’ve been hobbled on crutches even making it to the In-n-Out at Fisherman’s Wharf is a huge pain in the ass so I hadn’t had my fix for a while.
Luckily since it was off hours there was no line and plenty of seating so we even got to sit at the handicap table and take advantage of my crippled-ness.
Well, I’ve had cravings for In-n-Out lately – not sure if the rain is doing it or if the fact that my sports teams are kicking ass (War Damn Eagle!). The Iron Bowl left me wrecked though, since Auburn was down 21-0 before we even had a single first down, I was a bit worried = drinking lots of beer. Luckily I had a dream that Auburn went down 21-0 but won the game so I felt like it was destiny! After all, the Giants gave us torture and pulled it out in the end, so I was feeling the same and stuck it out, and it was such an amazing game!
Anyhow, back to In-n-Out, I had originally planned to get it “genex style” but Zack was actually working the register today so I figured I’d get it “Zack style” instead, which his co-worker Jasmine Fe, seemed to not have ever heard of. The burger came, I devoured it and spent the rest of the afternoon furniture shopping throughout the city… Continue reading Sat Nov 27, 2010: In-N-Out Burger #49 – Double Double Zack style (correctly made) – San Francisco, CA
I arrived just after opening at 10:32am and somehow was already the seventh ticket. I only saw one other couple seated but did see an empty trash tray too, so that’s at least two other tickets most likely. Anyhow, I just knew that I needed some In-n-Out since my internal clock let me know that I was overdue.
It was an unusual trip, since there was no rental car, hangover, or other reason – it was just that In-n-Out Urge… I was thinking that I will probably get right about 50 burger excursions to In-n-Out in in 2010. Maybe I’ll make a push to make it 52 for the evenness of it, but who knows. I guess the good news is that I still love In-n-Out Burgers so that’s gotta say something good about them right?
We even suggested In-n-Out to some mentees who loved McDonald’s, suggesting that if they have to have fast food that In-n-Out is a good option.
So I had to shoot a wedding down in Monterey and missed the Giants game this night (which we lost) so I needed an In-n-Out fix to help with the sorrow. This one was burned on the top of the bottom bun too much though so was a bit too crispy but it still was good. I dunno if it was b/c it was sorta Halloween and everyone wasn’t as focused on the food prep, but luckily the ingredients are always so good that I was satiated nonetheless.

Perhaps the longest break this year between In-n-Out Burgers was well worth it. I had to shoot at the Wharf and was slightly hung over so this one promised to be amazing! Then today as I was listening to the Clark Howard Show, I hear that he’s a huge In-n-Out freak too. Not sure if he knows about “genex style” or “Zack style” but hopefully he’ll try it and if he likes it try and popularize it. For those who don’t know – genex style – is my personal favorite style which is just a Double Double, Animal Style, no pickles, but with raw onions (as well as grilled). The Zack style just adds chilies to it. So good! Oh and of course Clark Howard mentions that Consumer Reports rated In-n-Out as the #1 burger chain. As Tim Lincecum would say, “F*ck yeah!”
As you can see from the photo, this one wasn’t made right with the pickles right sandwiched between the tomato and onions. Oh well, I didn’t mind digging them out, although I was slightly rushed, but my hatred of eating and driving prevented me from doing so since I had just dropped off a model from a shoot out there in Vegas. It was the Olympia Weekend, and I was out there to cover the show and photograph athletes. Many bodybuilders love In-n-Out like me, but I ate this one solo since I really just needed a lil’ down time to chill (a rarity in Vegas, of course!).
It seems like it’s been quite a while since my last In-n-Out excursion so of course the culprit was a rental car again, this time for a wedding shoot. I debated getting it “Zack style” but instead went with my own “genex style” and was definitely satisfied and ready to shoot on a hot day. I’ve started using Foodspotting a lot of late too so have documented my burgers moving forward there on my profile.
