In-N-Out 100x100

I noticed in my SiteMeter logs that I was getting an abnormal number of hits today. And it looks like the famous In-N-Out 100x100 is making its way around the internet.

First, I noticed that someone referenced it about a month ago here (check out comment #43):
http://www.badmouth.net/in-n-outs-secret-menu/

But this week, it was stepped up a couple of notches. A couple of days ago, the people at la.foodblogging.com somehow got a hold of the picture (but didn't know about my blog at first). Check out their post here.

Next thing you know, it's cross posted in a couple of different places:
- ahamburgertoday.com
- livejournal.com

Hooray..everyone knows we're pigs!

With the new attention, I thought I would detail the whole In-N-Out 100x100 story.

It started innocently enough with a Halloween weekend in Vegas (2004). What started as a drunken, silly weekend..became quite legendary.

Throughout the weekend, Andy kept on saying: "We should go get a 100x100 at In-N-Out". Over..and over...and over again. Until we finally broke. So on Halloween night, we went to go chowdown.

The receipt 100x100 $97.66 - 1 Dbl/Dbl, 98 Extra patties


Furiously cooking the 100x100..they were shocked. They said the biggest order they had before this was the 24x24


The Completed masterpiece


Close ups - they jury rigged a couple of boxes together

I need to stop right here. Please take a CAREFUL look the picture on the right. There is a common misperception that the 100x100 has a hundred buns. No, that's not true. It's one set of buns and ONE HUNDRED meat patties and ONE HUNDRED pieces of sweaty-oily cheese in between the buns. Clearly, the worst part of this experience wasn't the meat..it was the sweaty cheese.


Horizontal view


1/2 way done - just look the disgusting left over pool of cheese on the right

The following are some very nasty close ups. Click on the images to feel even more disgusted.




Thank God..we are almost done. 5 patties left.




Now at this point...we all feel extremely sick. VERY sick. Disgusted. It's not quite because we are all full. But it's more a factor of just being completely disgusted and nauseated by the sweaty cheese. Can you blame us...

the final 5 patties


To make us feel even more disgusting....we hit a couple of raw patties near the end

But we finished! We rule in our fatness....



All that was left was..yup...the 2 EXTREMELY soggy and greasy buns.


Gross...was anyone actually going to eat that? Oh yes...we FORCED Andy to because it was his idea. Watching this almost made us barf.



And here is the victorious team with the great people at In-N-Out.

(The crew. And yes...the guy on the right is Tony, CEO of Zappos.com, The Web's Most popular shoe store. He doesn't normally dress like that...but it was Halloween. Go buy some shoes...once you buy online, you'll never go to the mall again for shoes. Free shipping. Free returns. Price protection.)



Here are a couple of interesting stats to summarize the experience:
  • Total calories (extrapolating from info provided here): 19490 calories
  • Total eaters 8 (2 girls and one guy who already ate dinner and only ate 6 patties)
  • Most patties eaten by one person : I think I ate about 20. I think Nalin ate about 20 as well (including the raw ones)
  • Time to finish : less then 2 hours
  • Number of people who barfed : 1 (way to go Elena!)
Oh yeah.... nothing says "Vegas baby" like barfing, not because of booze..but because of burgers.

The sad thing is, In-N-Out use to be one of my favorite things in the world. Now..the thought of it makes me sick and I haven't touched it since. :(

Update 1/29 - So this innocent little post has made us, as Chowmag.com describes us - "Internet-Enabled Legends". Maybe not quite legends, but it has made the last couple of days interesting. Details here. Also, we will be posting a quick video clip that we forgot we took that day.

Updated 1/31 - I just posted a quick video of us at In-N-Out that day...mildly interesting.

Updated 2/1 - Embarassingly enough, I was interviewed on the radio today for my love of sweaty cheese.

And as LiveJournal syndicated links are volatile, I'll record the permanent link to the entry in question here: http://vjarmy.com/archives/2006/01/75x75.php (Noting that I actually linked to you in comments, and that all the comments will go away once LJ decides the entry is too old to keep.)

I still kinda wish I had an opportunity to try an In-N-Out - no chance to even see one unless I travel across the country. The most I'd eat is a 4x0 though (can't eat cheese).

Some guys I knew back at Ricketts House at Caltech did this back around 1997 or so. I had graduated already, so I didn't see it in person, but I'm pretty sure they've got photos of it somewhere. I heard there were plans to do a 666 x 666, but I dunno if they ever pulled that off.

You guys made it through about 98 patties and you came to raw, uncooked meat. You were served UNCOOKED meat- by all rights you should have been able to get your money back, if not sue.

Just something to think about. It would have been a tough case, but you probably would have gotten away with a free 100 pattied burger.

More stats:

You ate enough calories to cover you for two days (and your team averaged enough for a full day with no other food). Also, your team consumed about 2050 grams of fat, an average of 256 grams each and a max of 820 for both of you manly men. That is your daily fat requirement for 5 days average or two weeks worth maxed out.

As for me personally, not even the sight of that oleaginous blob can successfully wean me from cheeseaholism, and the tale of this feat only makes me want to stop in at an In-n-Out should I ever find myself on the West Coast.

Oh, yes, it might also lead me to change where I shop for shoes.

Wow! The pics just makes me blaaarrrghhh. Impressing to get so many hits. I've never had a single visitor at any of my pages, sites or blogs. At least none that bothered to lave a comment. Maybe I should start writing about totally meaningless issues too?
By the way, once in Gran Canaria on a holiday, I ate 6 huge pizzas, drank 2 big jars of sangria, topped it with 8 pints. Just to annoy a waiter that was all too eager to give me the bill as I was half-way into my first napolitana. And as such behaviour always annoys me, I decided to let him have it! Every time he stopped by with a hand-written bill - that's seven in all, I ordered a new round of food and drink. And every time he moved up a step on the angrymeter thrown into his face by me and my absolutely horrific behaviour against that poor boy. As I remember, I occupied the table for three hours in a already crowded restaurant.
Guess what I had for lunch the day after, at the same restaurant, at the same table - serviced by the same unlucky soul?

Good pics, but not a new idea. Back around 1994, my housemates and friends were drunk (natch), and decided a 100x100 was just the thing. One of the more handy among us built an appropriately-sized wooden box, much the same shape as your cardboard conglomeration. We decorated the box with hand-painted labels and such, fortified ourselves with beer, and headed over to the local InO. There were a couple more of us than anticipated, so we actually ordered a 110x110. We also received boxes and boxes of lettuce, tomatoes, onions and buns. We managed to polish it all off, and for dessert, we bet one of the more drunk guys he wouldn't drink the congealed grease pooled in the bottom of the box. He did it for $40. We got photos.

I'll really have to see if I can find the pics of the event. This was before digital cameras were common, so I'll have to go through my Kodak Paper.

Bravo! At my old company we had something called Netdare, where we dared one of the employees to eat 10 whoppers in 10 hrs (which includes all the veggies and bread). I believe a number of people showed up to contribute to the pot (it ended up being a few hundred dollars or perhaps even more)

At the beginning of the challenge he said, "I would eat 10 whoppers for free, no question."

At the end of the challenge (he only completed 9.75 whoppers.. couldn't make himself eat the last quarter), he said, "I would never do that again.. for any sum of money."

Willy, no offense because you seem like a nice guy... but this is simply, unimpressive. In fact, it's pathetic. I can't believe how much of your page was dedicated to complaining. I mean, if you did this and merely mentioned it in passing, sure, good for you. However, because you seem to think this is so spectacular, I felt it necessary to let you know that it is not. In fact, your arrogance over such a minimal feat has enraged me to the point to do you one better. Actually, it'll be 2 better. Not only will my brothers and myself eat a 102 X 102, but "my brothers and myself" consist of 3 people. Also, I will eat as much as YOU did in a 4th of the time just to show you how unimpressive you and your slacker friends are. Do you know any world records? I'm about to make one.

P.S. I'll eat In N Out the next day.

The 666x666 was made for Ricketts house at Caltech, as Adam Vilani suspected. It stretched the span of the RF courtyard at Caltech (aboud the length of a house) & was brought on a flatbed. The two closest In&Outs wouldn't make it. One just wouldn't make one that size & the other wouldn't make a 666x666. They'd make a 665x665 or a 667x667. After establishing that adding a patty+cheese to a 665x665 or removing one from a 667x667 was "lame," so the seniors drove a bit further to get a true 666x666 for ditchday. It was enjoyed by much of the campus that day--plates and forks were provided. Thanks again to Tom Manion!

Okay, first of all, I work for In-N-Out and I'd like to say that I probably work for the world's best company. We get GREAT benefits. We have amazing pay. We get treated with respect at work and in general I work at in a really upbeat and wonderful enviorment.

Thanks to YOU guys, some drunken boys, we have gotten a HORRIBLE reputation. A newspaper tried to construct their own 100x100 by taking several 8x8's. To anyone who is upset about now having to order a 4x4 and an extra meat patty and extra cheese just to get a 5x5, well, that would be your guys' fault.

The food we make is amazing, I have worked there for OVER a year and can still eat their several times a week, who can say that about their job? I know people who work at McDonald's, Taco Bell, Jack in the Box, who say they won't even THINK about going there outside of work hours because they now know what is in their food.

I even go in on my day offs and it's still great to me. You have given In-N-Out a bad name, you've hurt the company and all of it's workers. I'm sure it was a fun joke to you guys but now you've kept people from ever wanting to enjoy In-N-Out and that's a shame. You've made it so people would actually go to McDonald's, which isn't even the real meat of the cow, then In-N-Out.

Did we hold a gun to the In-N-Out workers heads and force them to make us a 100x100?

Settle down.

If this story made In-N-Out stop serving anything more than a 4x4...do I care? No. Does anyone really need something more than a 4x4? Maybe about as much as 8 people need a 100x100.

By doing this you have both metaphorically and literally slapped every in-n-out employee twixt the face with your genetalia. You have killed their fathers and raped their mothers (especially the dead ones) and taught every cuss to all their children.

I hope you are happy with yourselves and your ridiculous foresight what with being able to predict that ordering a single 100x100 would cause so much pain and suffering for all of humanity.

i am a faithful in-n-out associate and i don't entirely blame your drunken night in vegas and your 100x100 for our new 4x4 rule, however you played a major part in ruining the meals of countless people everywhere in the western us. granted america is already fat enough but i can't tell you how disapointed i am to tell people they can't have a 6x6 or 5x5 or 8x8 or whatever burger they want. in-n-out's reputation for quality was ruined by you and countless others. it was fun while it lasted and yes sometimes those kind of burgers were a pain to make but hey it made our customers happy and cooks like myself took pride in making great looking 8x8's and so on. those associates out there who take no pride in their job also cost in-n-out's reputation. if i would have made that burger it would have looked great! also about the "raw" meat at the end of your burger, that will sometimes happen when cooked meat of any kind is left out for a long period of time. the meat cools and turns red. so it probably wasn't "raw" i'll give you the fact it might have been underdone or the cook could have been rushing to get your order off so as not to impeded the service to other guests. also our meat is grade a++++++++ and you can't get sick from eating a bit of red meat. in-n-out follows all health code standards to a tee and our meat is cooked above normal temperature standards to ensure safety. peace and love to all.

It's just that no one had the bright idea to film it and post it online. INO's policy to make the 4X4 the biggest burger they would serve is for the best. They have high standards for quality but value customer service even more. That's the only reason why they ever made 5X5 6X6 etc. It was to please the customer, because they don't want to every say no to a customer's request. I made a 45X30 once and it wasn't very pretty. This is also how the FF animal style was born, at the request of a cutomer, sure they boost our FF sales but for the cooks it's a pain in the behind and actually increases wait time. So, now that a few customer's think that our bigger burgers are ugly and nasty and post pics of them, the company decided to minimize the damage to our high quality standard by issuing the 4X4 policy. All of this is part of the "secret menu" anyway, just be glad no one had ordered the 0X100 or else the poor grilled cheese would have be axed.
