Review: In-N-Out - Secret Menu - French Fries Well Done

In-N-Out's Well Done French Fries.

In-N-Out French fries are made in house from fresh Kennebec potatoes and only come in one size for $1.29.
 What some customers don't know is that In-N-Out will cook their fries to whatever doneness you like.  I like to get mine "well" or "well done."

Now I didn't really care for In-N-Out French fries growing up (although I like them well enough now) and people I knew either loved them or hated them.  I always felt while they had a good albeit a bit starchy potato flavor, they often tended to be soft and limp.

From what I can figure, since In-N-Out fries are cooked from fresh cut potatoes whereas most fast food chains are frozen, they have a shorter cooking time since the internal temperature is lower, which results in limp noodle fries.  Frozen fries are crispier because the outsides can crisp before the inside cooks too much.

But as I mentioned, In-N-Out will cook your fries pretty much however you like them.  Besides "as is," you can get them "light," "well," or "extra-well."  I like mine "well" because every fry is crisp but not approaching the almost-burnt doneness of "extra-well"  I can't imagine many people getting their fries "light" since it's even softer than normal and almost feels raw.
