Ordering a burger Animal Style -- or with Thousand Island spread, tons o' pickles, and a mustard-grilled patty -- at In-N-Out is a fun, open secret everyone is in on. But asking for a burger Monkey Style at In-N-Out -- that's (supposedly) Animal Style fries (aka fries with grilled onions, spread, and cheese) piled high on a burger -- will get you a look from the cashier. While people still try and place Monkey Style orders, it's not a real secret menu item that the restaurant can make, according to a Reddit AMA with a former assistant manager and 12-year vet of the beloved California burger chain.
The Monkey Style myth all started in 2013, when a hoax video went viral in which someone ordered a burger topped with Animal Style fries. But In-N-Out famously has an extremely simple, limited menu, and they're not going to change it for an internet myth. "[In-N-Out] tries to stay as true to the original menu as possible," the former employee said.
