Ordering animal style is an easy way of telling them you want the following in addition to the standard stuff they do to their burgers:

  • pickles
  • extra spread
  • extra grilled onions
  • mustard fried onto each meat patty.

    Unfortunately I've only had 5 guys one time, during a pretty rocky period of my now defunct marriage, lol, I remember it was good, and I liked the fries.  I have never had In N Out, but will, some day.  I am very excited about having a Sonic on the way to my son's house, which I just discovered last week, lol!

      I BELIEVE that means...no bun.  The actual expression is supposed to be "protein style"  Of coarse I could be confused about this...never actually been to one of the places.  This is covered min "EAT THIS, NOT THAT!"
       
      And I see now that I am in fact confused on the matter...sorry 'bout that...still wanna try the place...
       
      ...next time I'm in Vegas...

        leethebard, not only can you order your fries done from light to extra well, you can order them animal style as well.  That means fries with melted cheese, grilled onions and some of the burger spread (like a 1000 island spread) on top.

        My typical order consists of the following: 4x2 animal style no tomato, animal style fries well, vanilla shake. And a fork.

            I saw that thing about the "mustard fried burger".  What is that?

              They spread the patty with mustard while it's on the griddle. It's deliciously different, but you have to like mustard on your burgers. NYPizzaNut wouldn't be happy with it.

                Protein Style is not the same as Animal Style at all it never was and never will be. Protein Style is simply the burger wrapped in lettuce rather than a bun.

                Now you can order Protein Style/Animal Style but that could be one messy burger.

                My standard order has always been.....A Double Double Animal Style, Fries Well Done, a Chocolate Shake, and a Diet Coke. (I just like Diet Coke better then Regular Coke....) There have been times when I've ordered two Double Doubles....back when I was a young Marine.....many, many years ago.

                          I order my protein style as a, double, double. Believe me, it's messy enough!

                            I have enjoyed both companies Burgers several times. I tend to agree with the Apples and Oranges comparison. They are both good, but for different reasons.

                            I tended to stay with the traditional Double-Double w/onion at In-n-Out over the years. Always very fresh toppings and the 'toasted' bun was a real plus (to me).  A nice touch at the drive-thru was the way they asked if you wanted them to "eat in the car or bagged to go home". I was not a fan of the fries. They tended to wimp-limp after a very few minutes. However two Double Doubles and a large Lemonade would make a great lunch on a hot desert day !!

                            My 5 Guys experiences have been more recent...within the past year. My tastes may have changed and my budget sure has...so I don't do them as often as I did in-n-Out in SoCal. But they are OK. I like the fries and a single Burger with grilled onions and tomato is enough for my. Plus I have to go in to order and pick-up the food.

                            Both are good in their own ways !

                                Considering you live in NJ , just go to your local bar, tavern or diner, order a burger, and what your likely to get will be much better than In n Out anyway. I can't comment on 5 guys as I've never been there.

                                    Having experienced both a few times now, Im going to give my vote to 5 guys.  I like the thicker patties, and the char flavour. The selection of topings is excellent, and when you order fries you get a S**tload.  And i too think the fries are cooked a bit better.
                                     
                                    To find out more about the different ways to order your INO food, Google "In n Out burger secret menu" and you will find all the different ways you can order your food, and what you will get when you do.
                                     
                                    Note to JBS - next time you're in Vegas, dont just stop at INO - drop in to Fatburger on the strip, beside Walgreens and across from Monte Carlo.  I always get a Kingburger with the fried egg on it.  When i go to vegas i may not make it to INO, but I ALWAYS make time for Fatburger...

                                      imho, regional fast-food chains qualify as roadfood. i consider white castle to be roadfood, since the closest one is 1200 miles away....
                                       
                                       in-and-out burger is one of the best regional chains imho.. food is always fresh, and the prices can't be beat. in the seattle area the closest thing to in-and-out is kidd valley, but kv tries to be more gourmet and it's reflected in the prices.......... our best regional chain is currently dick's, they have a simple menu like in-and-out but there are no substitutions or modifications, you get what's on the menu and that's it.

                                        The burgers at Kidd Valley simply blow away In and Out. There is no comparison.

                                            Kidd Valley is really good. They are very community minded, as well. Not that it matters wo much, but it is nice. 

                                            I haven't been to Dick's. I am always amazed at the lines of people at any Dick's location. It looks like Ted Drewes! Certainly makes me want to try it.

                                              Considering you live in NJ , just go to your local bar, tavern or diner, order a burger, and what your likely to get will be much better than In n Out anyway. I can't comment on 5 guys as I've never been there.

                                                  Of course there are better burgers out there...I too love a great burger at our favorite watering whole...bit we're talking a chain here, and value for your buck...or three bucks. My point way back at the start of this thread was having grown up on Burger Kings and such, it was a pleasant surprise to get a quality burger with FRESH ingedients at a chain, and for such a great price. I never meant to compare the experience to a restaurant burger.

                                                        The key to your comment is "I don't think so."  Everyone is entitled to form their own opinion of 'quality', so long as they have at least tried whatever Burger is in question.

                                                      I happen to like the In-n-Out Burger. When it is convenient, and I desire a "Burger on the run" (so to speak), it fulfills my desire very well.  It may not do that for others.   I respect your opinion, but I differ with you in my thoughts about the quality of that chain-burger!

                                                        Well we can argue what "quality" means. All I'm saying is in my travels in Southern Cal last week I constantly passed seversl In N Outs next to other burger chains. In N Out was always packed and neighboring Mickey D's ,Burger Kings and Jack in the Boxes were deserted. Seems people preferred In N Out to the more national chains. All I'm saying, as an East Coaster I was pleasantly surprised by the tasty burger and the price I paid for it. I got to talk to the manager in the Palm Springs place, and they were certainly proud of the quality ingredients and the value. I agree.
                                                            Judging by many of the comments here,others agree.

                                                              The key to your comment is "I don't think so."  Everyone is entitled to form their own opinion of 'quality', so long as they have at least tried whatever Burger is in question.

                                                            I happen to like the In-n-Out Burger. When it is convenient, and I desire a "Burger on the run" (so to speak), it fulfills my desire very well.  It may not do that for others.   I respect your opinion, but differ in my thoughts about the quality of that chain-burger!


                                                            Al,
                                                             
                                                            ultimately, chain or not, there's got to be some taste to the burger. After having tried In and Out twice, I can truly say, I couldnt' taste anything.....again, as far as a chain burger is concerned, if you ever make it out to the Seattle, try Kidd Valley and you'll see what I mean.
