File this under #mindblown. We’ve been ordering In-N-Out animal style fries wrong this whole time.

All those nights of ordering take-out but insisting on eating our animal style fries immediately, either in our car or in the restaurant, because we didn’t want them to get soggy…#unnecessary

Did you know you could order your fries to taste? Like, if you want them undercooked or overcooked?
WE DID NOT KNOW THIS. But now we do, thanks to a former manager who dished some secrets to Thrillist.

“If you’re going to eat Animal fries, the best thing to do is to order them ‘fry well’ because the fries will hold their shape,” she said. That way, they won’t get mushy under all the cheese and sauce.

Or, if you’re a total weirdo, you can order your fries light.

We know that we’ll be ordering all our fries, whether animal style or no, well-done from this point forward.

How could we have gone so long without this little hack? It’s like combining the only good thing about McD’s (the super crispy fries), with the far superior, more potato-liberal In-N-Out fries drizzled with their animal-style special sauce.

We’re sold.
