Lopez-Alt went beyond the not-so-secret secret items such as animal-style fries and the 4x4, and asked for the more obscure--a Flying Dutchman (two slices of cheese melted between two patties), well-done fries (cooked extra long), a root beer float. He ordered burgers medium rare, mustard grilled and topped with chopped chiles.
The entire fast-food adventure was photo-documented, of course, and now, the complete "In-N-Out Matrix" can be downloaded and used as your desktop wallpaper. Drooool.
