“Fake In-N-Out”

Thanks to Jordan for sending yesterday: “Not affiliated with the real company. Trying to pass off as the real thing.

So sad.”

Anyone actually try it?

From Dalton: “I can 1000% confirm that it is not real In-N-Out. Not sure how they haven’t gotten busted for false advertising yet. My wife and I ate it this past Sunday and that’s the first time we’ve seen the truck- we aren’t down by the mall too often though.
