In-N-Out's Monkey Style Burger: A Hoax?

Categories: Chain Reactions

Was the greatest food discovery since bacon doughnuts a hoax? In-N-Out officials and hungry investigators say yes.

Last week, Foodbeast announced an In-N-Out secret-menu item we'd never heard of: the Monkey Style burger. It's a burger stuffed with Animal Style fries (french fries, cheese, grilled onions and spread). Yep. Commence freak-out in 5-4-3-2 ...


OMG

Although Foodbeast made the disclaimer that "many cashiers aren't familiar with Monkey Style, or simply shy away from creating it due to its possible disruptive nature to the back of the house," an In-N-Out rep says it doesn't exist at all.

Carl Van Fleet, vice president of planning and development at In-N-Out, told LAist, "There is no such thing. It seems to be a story that originated somewhere in cyberspace. For a variety of reasons, we're unable to prepare burgers in the manner that a few websites have described as 'Monkey Style.'"

Customers, too, have been fruitless in their quests, getting confused stares when they mention the words Monkey Style. Naader Reda of FreakEating documented his attempt to get his hands on the mystical burger. See the video on the next page.

Looks disgusting. Besides, In N Out Fries are the worst fries in fast food.

Putting out a story without vetting sources? for shame.

So strange. In-N-Out doesn't put fries on burgers but yet we can get California Burritos with fries in them?

I had it, it was good, but let me clarify: You cant order it. The only way youre going to get it is a: Work there, make it yourself, b: be either the very first or very last customer of the day and hope the cook isnt in a shitty mood. In my case it was A, and I had to ring it up a double double and animal fries, same as when anybody else orders it

I went there also. The guy at the drive-thru taking my order said maybe they would tell him about the new burger at the next meeting....I swear he was the third guy on Dumb & Dumber. I'm gonna try Chapman next.

Not in Foothill Ranch. According to the genius at the counter, "that is an urban legend."

Tried on Saturday at the one on Harbor Blvd. in Fullerton and they said they don't make them anymore. Hmmm, did they ever??

I don't like the sauce anyway. If you want it so bad, order the Fries "Animal Style" and add them to the burger yourself. Damn it, now I want In-n-Out

How hard is it to ask them to put animal fries on a burger?

Tried ordering it at the location on Tustin Ave. in Orange and the staff looked at me like I was an F'ing weirdo. Not giving up, will try another location on Chapman later today.

Some jackass on the Internet came up with this BS and has pulled a fantastic prank on the joke that has become American journalism. Obviously OC Weekly hasn't caught on yet...

You can just "assemble" it yourself easily enough.

Bf asked for it and the worker acted as if they didn't know what it was. Read that they won't make it anyway.

The animal fries were better when they melted the cheese on the grill, cant say I like the mini microwave oven thing.
