Order from the secret menu at In-N-Out.

In-N-Out is Southern California’s favorite fast-food joint, a family-run chain known for fresh ingredients and mouth-watering double-double burgers. Fans don In-N-Out T-shirts, plaster bumper stickers on their cars and are willing to wait in lunchtime lines for their fix.

The sign of a true In-N-Out addict is knowledge of the chain’s “secret menu” of items you can order even though they’re not on the signboard. Some fans now tout the secrets on the Web, but even students who grew up eating In-N-Out probably haven’t heard of everything on this list:

Animal-style: Burger with lettuce, tomato, extra spread, pickles and grilled onions. Mustard is grilled into the patty. There’s also an animal-style version of fries.
Protein-style: A burger without the bun, wrapped in lettuce instead.
Wish burger: A burger minus the meat.
4-by-4: A burger with four patties and four slices of cheese. Other variations, such as a 3-by-3, also are possible.
Neopolitan: A shake with chocolate, vanilla and strawberry.
Grilled cheese: Two slices of cheese on a bun, along with the rest of the fixings.
Flying Dutchman: Two meat patties, two slices of cheese and nothing else.
Double meat: A double-double burger without the cheese.
