So, all you Californians with your fancy cars? You might want to rev your engines and head west, because Endolyne Joe's is serving In-N-Out-like burgers, beginning today.
The "Out and In" platter is an entry in the Chow Foods-owned restaurant's presumably inoffensive Hollywood-themed menu, which runs for the next three months. Other new menu items include a Hedda Hopper Hangover Helper hash, a Hollywood Bowl salad, and a Scorsese Caprese panini.
The sliders, though, aren't just cutely named: Manager Rey Vasquez describes them as a "pair of animal-style patties with mustard, caramelized onions, tomatoes, and pickles."
Risking accusations of heresy from In-N-Out fans who believe the fast-food chain is responsible for the single greatest edible ever invented, Vasquez says his restaurant's version of the burgers is better.
"I've been to In-N-Out once, and I wasn't too impressed," says Vasquez, who knows he's courting controversy.
The $9.50 Out and In burgers are available daily from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. And for carnivores who don't understand the In-N-Out fuss, the kitchen's still serving its standard Joe's burger too.
