So after learning that my daughter Julia's overnight school trip included a quick stop at IN-N-OUT Burger, I panicked! She's never been there and I wasn't sure if they would accommodate someone with Food Allergies. After much whining and complaining to my husband about why life isn't fair and why do these things always happen to us.... I did some homework! I called the IN-N-OUT headquarters and asked about their policies. I made sure that it was a peanut free facility and IT WAS! So that was a big deal, being that Julia's most severe allergy is to peanuts. Whew.... one down, two to go. So it looked like it was down to the burger because I was told that they just cook their fries in Cottonseed Oil and nothing else. Fries were safe! So back to the burger...
The bun=free of milk, egg and peanut
The hamburger meat=free of milk, egg and peanut
The sauce=contains egg but also free of milk and peanut
So we do,:
hamburger with bun, lettuce, ketchup.. no sauce
fries with ketchup
and a sprite!
If you're going gluten free, you can order your burger "protein style". It's the burger meat wrapped in lettuce.
So far they have been so good about keeping our girl safe!
Please be sure to take all the precautions needed to ensure your childs safety while eating out. Make sure you specify your childs allergies, and have them clean the grill and use a new spatula every time! Good luck and safe eating!
