Back when this was done and popped up online years ago; the other pictures from this series of photos [several undercooked patties in the middle] are the specific reason the owner no longer allows anything larger than a 4x4. link to the original blog post http://whatupwilly.blogspot.com/2006/01/in-n-out-100x100.html

FlaxxtotheMaxx

Probably rushed to get it out - this order alone would occupy all three cook tops (if all 3 were even running, big oof if they weren't) and you can fit maaaaaybe 18 patties at a time.


Aitrod

You can do better than 18 meat at a time. When I worked there (many years ago) it was technically possible to fit 32 meat on a grill at once.. although that was tricky. The stronger cooks could generally maintain 24-28 meat at a time for normal orders, and this order with a single bun and no onions etc. would be about the easiest order you could have.


marshmallowlips

It wasn’t the middle patties, it was the middle of the patties at the end if you read the blog post. Guessing those were the last ones made and they were tired of cooking lol


WeaponizedPoutine

I got a 5x5 (mustard fried, whole grilled onions, and peppers on the side) at the In-N-Out in Keizer, OR about six months ago so that is either no longer a thing, bad data, or I was lucky. Edit: an auto correct error: Keizer not Kaiser


DHUniverse

We get trained on a culture of yes, trying to say yes to whatever the costumer ask, and don't say no, but the top we can do is 4 meats and 6 cheese on a burger, if a costumer asks for something bigger, the right anwser is, for presentation motives the biggest we can go is a 4x4, we can cook extra meat patties with cheese and give them to you on the side if you would like But some store managers are ok with giving a costumer bigger burgers, they could get in trouble if they get caught or reported by an associate, but they live by that culture of yes


[deleted]

I suppose you can just get a puppy patty/flying dutchman, slide that in the middle and you're right there. IMO anything bigger than a 2x2 is dumb AF though. 2 of those are infinitely better than a 4x4.


beer_is_tasty

Hard disagree, 3x3 is the ideal ratio.


DHUniverse

I respect your opinions but the golden ratio is 1 cheese for every two meat, so double single or 4x2 it's what hits the spot


Impenistan

Look, you’re both fine people, but in my experience the 3x2 is the perfect sandwich; it overloads on neither meat nor cheese, keeps a respectable ratio on the two, and gives excellent meat texture without requiring me to unhinge my jaw to eat it.


SuperWoody64

See I like a 4x5. I want a cheesy situation. Plus I have a big fucking mouth.


BorImmortal

Nah too much bread. I need my meat to bread ratio to favor the meat.


KooshIsKing

You very likely just got lucky the owner of that particular franchise allowed it for you. I've tried so many times and they always say 4 x 4 is the max no matter what In N Out I go to.


Utaneus

In N Out is not a franchise. Every store is owned by the Snyder family. Most likely the manager at that time made a judgment call and figured it was reasonable enough to slightly bend the rules and give the customer what they wanted. INO maintains pretty stringent standards but they also want their employees to have the leeway to please the customers.


Peuned

this so much. there's no franchises. they just want it to be good but local spots can use their judgement. i did order a few 3x3's back in the day and they were as bomb as i was drunk


Bah-Fong-Gool

This is the benefit of having NCOs.


_rsoccer_sux_

Non-commissioned Officers?


kennytucson

In n out doesn’t fuck around.


Groovatronic

I mean it’s an air tight ship as far as fast food goes. They have the burger assembly line down to a T. God damn it - I need a double double ASAP


V8CarGuy

Nothing like a Chief petty officer to keep the cooks moving fast.

ObsessedFi45

I got a 5x5 on leave in Sacramento back in March.


WeaponizedPoutine

Any chance it was the one in Natomas? My first job out of the service was at Raging Wire as an onsite technician and we would hit that spot up all the time because they were always slow to make the orders and was a good spot for extended lunches.


ObsessedFi45

Nah it was the one next to IKEA in West Sacramento I've also had it done by the one in Roseville near Sun splash and the other one near the mall


WeaponizedPoutine

Sunsplash is that the water park next to cattleman's and the golfland?


WeaponizedPoutine

I used to pass by that place all the time, looked fun, but that point in my life (26) I felt too "old for waterparks" now at 40 and living in Oregon I miss 'em lol and planning a trip to San Jose just for an excuse to go RagingWaters this summer


ObsessedFi45

Yeah, golfland/sunsplash is the same company


redness88

Natomas was the spot since they were open till 1am.


taz5963

I actually used to work at one of the ones in Natomas. All in and outs are open until 1 am, 1:30 am on Friday and Saturday.


WeaponizedPoutine

I should have added that yes they were open when most were not (except the few mad lads that ran River City Brewing as well as Fox and Goose Bierhause, who catered to the grave shift in those "'darkest of days'" known as night shift 2008-2010)


[deleted]

[удалено]


KonradWayne

Yeah, I've always been told that 4x4 is the biggest they will go, but they will sell you extra patties and cheese on the side and let you put them on yourself.


taz5963

You can actually add 2 slices of cheese, so up to a 4 x 6. Source: I work at in and out


UberForJen

Why are you trying so many times to eat a burger with more than 4 patties and 4 slices of cheese


Green_Red_Purple

Can't you just order two of them? and get 8?


NyathanNyuwen

How do you even order a 4x4 or 5x5


WeaponizedPoutine

INO cashier: "...what can I get for you today?" You/me/other: "yo hope you are well today, I will take a 5 by 5 with whole grilled onions, mustard fried, and some sport peppers on the side please" INO cashier: "(repeats order) anything else I can do for you?" You/me/other: "maybe a Neapolitan shake" INO: "Gotcha, anything else" You/me/other: "na, I'm dope"


NyathanNyuwen

secret menu type shit


HalflingMelody

Yeah In N Out is the OG secret menu place. You can walk up and say you want a flying dutchman animal style and well done cheese fries and a neopolitan and they won't even look at you weird.


Linguini_gang

Who gets a Flying Dutchman animal style? If you’re getting it animal style you gotta pig out fully and get the buns


taz5963

Nah, it's all about animal and protein style together


Brrzeczyszczykiewicz

> mustard fried What's mustard fried?


WeaponizedPoutine

To my knowledge (and I might be wrong here) they coat the patties in mustard and cook them on the flattop rather than grill them. It is something I tried on a whim and will not go back, there is just a wonderful depth of flavor it has especially paired with whole grilled onions.


taz5963

All burgers are cooked on a 'flat top' mustard fried doesn't change that. You're write about everything else though. All we do is add mustard to the patty before we flip it over. Also, mustard fried adds pickles by default.


Arch315

You can get Neapolitan shakes??


WeaponizedPoutine

yes, and they are amazing


Leading_Funny5802

I’m in Florida now(grew up in Southwest) and I’d freakin KILL for an In-n-Out burger. Here it’s Five Guys and it is NOT the same.


GregariousGobble

We have shake shack at least. Way better than five guys


mrsacapunta

yeah but still not as cool as in-n-out


GregariousGobble

Hard disagree. The metal trays are much more fun to steal.


iceman10058

Nah, Five Guys has good food and portions for the cost. It isn't quite the same though. I miss my animal style fries and burger...

FlaxxtotheMaxx

Pretty much it! All the patties are cooked on the flat top though, no grill tops :) Worked there for close to two years


13point1then420

Yellow mustard or something else? Does it go on the raw patty?


Peuned

there's no grill, it's all on the top. but yeah mustard on the cooking patty. they usually add pickles, but for the like last 15 years in southern california they always ask 'with pickles?' and i go nah, whole peppers on the side.


TheDude-Esquire

This was probably 20 years ago, but on a high school trip a friend and I both got 8x8s. We finished them.


Arcosim

Love that blogspot post from 2006 with a theme for a 1024×768 resolution CRT screen. These sites are like little archeological pieces of the internet.


HOWDY__YALL

This is the correct answer. My college roommate and I would go to the cafeteria and order cheeseburgers with increasing amount of Patties. The quad burger as we called it was really the point where it started not being as good. Triple burgers are great and I highly recommend, one more patty is just about too much.


donut_clouds

IDK, the [quad stackers from BK](https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DcpvTqsX4AAK4DE.jpg) are pretty good when I want to hate myself for a few hours.


ryushiblade

Man, I remember when the OG stackers came out. I absolutely loved them. I had to leave the country for quite a while, and I’ll never forget the pulling up to a BL after finally coming back to America, ordering a BK stacker, and the guy going, “Uhhhh…. Sir, we haven’t sold that in years.” Real glad these are back, even if I don’t often eat them


Mookies_Bett

3x3 is always my go to at in n out. The 4x4 is sometimes tempting, but it just isn't structurally stable enough. It falls apart and turns into a big gooey, greasy disaster in your hands pretty quickly. You can only add so much meat to a burger before the bun just decided to quit on you. Same reason I hate all those fancy burgers that are 10 feet tall, piled on with shit. Bigger burgers should be wider, not taller. There is only so much stacking you can do before gravity humbles your greedy ass back to reality.


ryanmuller1089

Yea in n out can’t guarantee their quality when this shit happens so they were quick to say no That being said, glad it happened once.

I looked at the bottom of the post, one of the four guys was the ceo at Zappos, what a world

pacificnwbro

I did a 4x4 once before and ended up sleeping for about three hours once I finished. 10/10 would do it again.


exactlyfiveminutes

Just reading this article made me feel sick, I cannot fucking imagine doing this


_The_Incredible_Hulk

I’m high school my friends and I would do an annual 12x12 challenge, we have to order a 4x4 and a ton of flying Dutchman’s. It was a good time


myuusmeow

Aww man $2.65 for a double double, they're like $4.60 now.


poop_dawg

For anyone curious but not willing to look, this was in 2004. Can confirm some locations will break this rule as my skinny-ass dude friends got 5x5s regularly at In-N-Out when we were in high school a few years after that. I don't know exactly how it works behind the counter at In-N-Out, but having worked in customer service I can tell you that more often than not, workers will do secret extra shit for you if you're really nice to them and that's universal. My friends were goofy af but they were sweethearts.

Prestigious-Soup-520

How much was it ?


OvarianWindsock

$97.66 according to their blog post.


Legdrop_soup

~~There's no way this was under $100. I mean with the price of the burger plus all those extra slices of cheese and extra meat patties it couldn't have been, right? Unless each extra patty/slice of cheese was like $0.40 each which I seriously doubt. I could see it being $197.66 but I just don't see it being under $100.~~ Edit: I was so wrong and /u/OvarianWindsock (beautiful username btw) was right. This monstrosity was under $100!


OvarianWindsock

2004 prices. There's a picture of the receipt on their blog. [Here](http://whatupwilly.blogspot.com/2006/01/in-n-out-100x100.html)

I know they don't let you do this anymore but I can't imagine it'd be significantly more nowadays if they still let you, their prices have stayed extremely low.

Would it be possible to order a 3 x 6 then?


taz5963

Yes it would! I work there and the most we are allowed to do is 4 x 6. Although technically that would be a " 4 x 4 extra cheese extra cheese" in our system.


Yewnicorns

I don't know what their current restrictions on cheese are, but I **do** know they hate using multiple slices... It makes the burger so messy. Haha My husband worked for In N Out for 8 years & said multiple cheese slices were always the hardest. They're expected to put the burgers out looking a certain way regardless of how they're ordered. I'm sure it's possible if a 4x4 is still okay to order, but you'll probably get some looks or really testy looking smiles. Haha


ThoughtCenter87

Haha, fair enough!

In n out, being a nice Christian company, has since tried to erase any reference to this happening.

That's documented no matter how many times you edit out out of wikipedia in-n-out history erasing team!

We used to order 6x6s all the time. Then 10 of us came in and we all ordered them at the same time and they banned more than 4x4s at that In-n-out location after that.

I used to work there and most of the locations won’t even do this anymore because of people being annoying and asking during the rush.


[deleted]

Just order a burger and don’t be that guy


kitreia

I'm genuinely curious, are these things made to waste? Or are they actually eaten, like, each person takes a chunk of meat and cheese, and eats it with a fork? I'm not trying to be silly, I really am confused at what people do with these, because actually eating them seems very unappetising to me.


rustyrodrod

Eating this is how I wanna die. Just an unholy amalgamation of cheese and meat coursing through my veins as I walk into the light if the great beyond. That's why they print Bible verses on their containers, to ask forgiveness for creating such a delicious, abomination.


Organism212

This is obviosly pure stupid, but it highlights a big problem with burgers, especially high-end ones; burgers shouldn't be made so tall that it doesn't bite easy. It messes up the way you receive the flavors, and makes the whole experience not as fun. This is coming from someone with a big-mouth, that usually eats 5 burgers in a sitting. I love extra burger, but you can only go so tall before it becomes a choir to eat. Contact your local politicians, "make burgers wider, not taller". Get the message out.
