In-N-Out Burger - California

Since we moved to California in July, we have been hearing about In-N-Out Burger, so we drove to Gilroy today, just to try their famous burgers, french fries, and milkshakes.  I had read a lot of positive reviews about  dining gluten free at In-N-Out, but I also checked out their allergen information online.

In-N-Out Burger, which has a pretty small menu, has a good number of gluten free options - any of their burgers made Protein Style with a lettuce wrap, french fries, and chocolate, strawberry and vanilla shakes.

The line was out the door today, but overall, we felt we did not wait that long to place our order or receive our food.  I placed a separate order from my family, so I would have my own tray.  My hamburger, french fries, and chocolate shake were only $6.96, and I had my order marked as a gluten allergy, which showed up on my receipt.

I removed a lot of the lettuce wrap, because my hamburger was so small.  It was good, but next time I would order a double.  I would have loved some cheese, but In-N-Out only offers American cheese, which I do not enjoy.  Protein Style burgers are on their Not-So-Secret Menu, which you can view on their website.

The french fries, which are cut in-house, are fried in 100% vegetable oil.  I love skinny fries, and I love that the fries at In-N-Out were not greasy at all.

My husband and I shared a chocolate milkshake made from 100% pure ice cream. We all enjoyed the shakes, and look forward to ordering a Neapolitan the next time we dine at In-N-Out.  The Neapolitan milkshake, which is not on their regular menu, is a blend of vanilla, chocolate and strawberry ice cream.

Overall, we all enjoyed our meals at In-N-Out Burger, and would dine there again.  I was impressed with their food quality, which you can read about on their website, and that they give back to the community, helping abused and neglected children with their In-N-Out Burger Foundation.  In-N-Out has locations in California, Arizona, Nevada, Oregon, Texas, and Utah.

January 1, 2017 Update

Since writing this post, we have eaten at In-N-Out Burger several times.  We much prefer the location in Seaside to the one in Gilroy, which is always crazy busy.  I usually order a double burger, french fries, and a Neapolitan milkshake.  I recently discovered that the best way to eat french fries at In-N-Out is to dip them in my milkshake.  Sounds kind of gross, but it is amazing, trust me.  If you like salty and sweet, you will love this combination.

What are your favorite gluten free options at In-N-Out?
