Health Rating A. 4 stars on YelpFirst stop on this culinary(?) tour of Garey Avenue is In-N-Out Burger at 2505 S. Garey Ave. at the 60 Freeway.
While this site is a little further afield for me than the one on Indian Hill, it offers long drive-thru lanes so you don't feel like you're taking your life into your hands by sitting in the busy south-bound traffic lanes of Indian Hill. A little more modern, this one was opened in Aug 1984 and I believe the one on Indian Hill was 1974, it's still a drive-thru only with a few outdoor tables in a concrete area just between the dual drive-thru lanes.
Since I wanted to take photos and didn't want to eat in the car, I parked myself at one of the outdoor tables with a view of the restaurant, the 60 and 71 freeways, as well as the traffic on Garey.
Because this blog is about going outside my comfort zone, I decided to try a couple of things I hadn't tried before from the "secret menu." My usual burger is a double-double with onion. That is with a nice thick slice of raw onion. This time I decided to try the grilled onions on my burger. While the chopped onions were beautifully caramelized and sweet, I personally prefer the crunch and bite of the raw onion. Then for my fries I went with the "animal" style fries. The fries were loaded with the same caramelized onions and a big dollop of "secret sauce." My first bite seemed a little too sweet, but as I ate them the flavor seemed to mellow out a bit and the result was good if messy (thankfully they do supply a plastic fork).
