Cheeseburgers in Winter

In-and-Out Burger: A Behind-the-Counter Look at the Fast-Food Chain that Breaks all the Rules
By Stacy Perman

People native to the mid-west and the east coast may have only heard of the phenomenon that is In-and-Out Burger, an independent chain so revered that an In-and-Out food trailer comes to the Oscars via the Vanity Fair party. Others, though, remember the first time they tasted a freshly-made, juicy burger from In-and-Out. 

Perman sifts through available documents and interviews those with knowledge of the private company to craft a mouth-watering, informative narrative about In-and-Out Burger. On one level this title is a page-turner complete with a love story, family heartache, and entrepreneurial spirit. When one digs deeper, many additional layers are found. From the manner in which employees are treated to the company’s commitment to using fresh, high-quality ingredients, much can be gleaned from the business practices used by In-and-Out Burger. Those with an interest in the food industry or the business world need to make time to savor this book.

For more information about the company’s official and un-official menu and their history, go the official In-and-Out Burger website, http://www.in-n-out.com/.

Check out the book (and DVD) Hamburger America, which features author George Motz’s thoughts on some of the best burgers in the United States, to learn even more about delicious hamburgers.
